Le Roy, N.Y.--LeRoy residents will learn more Wednesday night about a mystery ailment that surfaced in handful of high school girls in November.
Two months ago, 13WHAM News learned that at least six students suffered from shaking similar to what is seen in those afflicted with Tourette's syndrome.
"The investigation has not revealed environmental or infectious causes as the origin of the students' illness," said Jeffrey Hammond, spokesman for the New York State Department of Health.
The School District is hosting a public meeting at LeRoy High School to update parents and students about the health investigation.
LeRoy Schools Superintendent Kim Cox told 13 WHAM News in November that this was an "isolated situation," but when asked today what the district had learned--declined comment--instead, referring us to an event listed on the district website:
"The safety and well being of all students and school staff is our top priority. The District continues to work with medical specialists, the State and County Health Departments, and the County and State Office of Mental Health during this ongoing investigation."
Residents have expressed frustration with the lack of information given to this point.
"The only thing I've heard is that we got a letter from the school district that said we had nothing to worry about," said Eric Schultz, a LeRoy resident. "Maybe they really haven't found anything and we don't have anything to worry about," said Jamie Pawlowski, a LeRoy High School graduate.
