PORTLAND, Ore. -- The monthly student magazine at Grant High School has published a story investigating the hazing case that turned into a sex crimes investigation.
Grant Magazine contains a 10-page special report about the locker room attack by four players on two teammates on the JV basketball team.
Three students were suspended from school over the incident. They have have since returned, but were kicked off the basketball team. A fourth student was expelled.
The student publication, in its story, says its sources say the police investigation is wrapped up and that no students at the school will be charged in the case.
Portland Police were quick to react, saying their investigation is ongoing.
For us there s no change. We expect it to be resolved shortly though the detectives and district attorney are not providing a timeline, said Lt. Robert King.
The publication s advisor, Dave Austin, says the 21 students in the class stand by their report that the police investigation has wrapped up and no charges will be filed against any students at the school.
The magazine given out Monday also included a letter from five of the six students involved in the case, including the two victims. The letter says that calling the attack a 'black on white' incident is completely false.
The students wrote the letter with the help of a mediator and parents.
The Grant Magazine story also outlines changes at the school including locker room monitors. English teachers have also recently lead discussions on bullying and the importance of coming forward. Many students are anxious for the whole ordeal to be over.
Editor's note: KGW previously aired an interview with a woman who identified herself as a relative of one of the hazing victims. KGW removed the story from its website when the woman's identity and report could not be corroborated by other sources.
