He made a strong bond with the students during his long time at this school. At this situation he is worried about all of them. He said in an interview:

“I’m so tuned in to children that I hate to see this happen, especially at their school, and I’m hoping they can survive this.” He added, “I’m thinking psychologically it may affect them a good deal because they are very young and very impressionable. I don’t know what this impression will do to these kids, but I think they’re going to need some counseling, not only from the school, but from their parents.”

Davidson County School released a statement:

Upon arriving at work prior to 6:00 a.m., an employee discovered an individual who appeared to be deceased on school grounds.

School officials and law enforcement were immediately notified and an investigation rapidly began. The campus had to be closed and the scene secured while law enforcement investigated and evaluated the security of the entire campus.

We are very appreciative of the job by officers with the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office. The entire campus was canvassed to ensure a safe return for students and staff. The investigation is ongoing and any additional information related to the deceased individual will be provided by law enforcement.

At this point there is no apparent connection between the individual and Ledford Middle School. Thoughts and prayers are with the family who will be mourning a loss of a loved one.”
