2 Stratford students die under unknown circumstances

Health officials say their deaths are not related. (5/22/13)

STRATFORD - Stratford residents are mourning the deaths of two students just a day apart.

Last Wednesday, a fifth-grade girl who attended St. James School died at St. Vincent's Medical Center in Bridgeport. A day later, a teen at Bunnell High School died.

Health officials say they're working with the state to figure out why the girls died, but do not believe the deaths are related.

The state medical examiner's office says it has completed autopsies on both girls, but is awaiting toxicology reports.
