CINCINNATI — Cincinnati officials Friday rescheduled the release of the Police Department's investigation into what went wrong in its response to two 911 calls from a 16-year-old boy who died trapped inside a minivan.
The city's vice mayor, Christopher Smitherman, said in a tweet that the City Council's law and safety committee he chairs will review the police report in a hearing May 14.
Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters had blocked a planned presentation for this past Wednesday with a subpoena of police records about the response to Kyle Plush. Plush's father found his body April 10 inside the 2004 Honda Odyssey in a parking lot near his school nearly six hours after Kyle's first 911 call.
A coroner said he died of asphyxiation from his chest getting compressed. It's suspected that the foldaway rear seat flipped over as he reached for tennis gear in the back.
Deters is conducting his own probe. He said Wednesday he wanted to "review everything from the Cincinnati Police Department including videos and still pictures." Deters said he also would review a report from the Hamilton County sheriff, who had a deputy at the school directing traffic at the time.
He said he expected his probe to wrap up early next week.
Plush's parents have said they "have questions and want answers" about what happened.
In his second 911 call, he provided a description of the vehicle and his location.
Police Chief Eliot Isaac has said something went "terribly wrong." He said two officers who went to the scene never received the vehicle description from Kyle's second call. It's not clear yet whether that was from the 911 call-taker's error, equipment problems, or both.
Cincinnati officials on Monday outlined plans for upgrading the emergency center.
