Officials with the Hays County sheriff’s office said Monday they believe the death of a Hays High School senior last week does not appear suspicious.
However, his death remains under investigation, school officials said.
Xavier Jacaman, 17, ran on the cross country team and was studying to earn his EMT certification, school district officials said. School officials informed Hays High School parents and staff about Jacaman’s death Friday night.
“We also understand Xavier was planning to serve our country in the United States Army following graduation in just seven weeks,” the Hays school district said in a statement. “It is a painful loss. Please keep Xavier’s family and dear friends in your thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.”
Counselors offered support today to students and employees who sought it, officials said.
