School officials who met with Ethan Crumbley have been secretly furloughed

Two Michigan school officials who met with suspected gunman Ethan Crumbley hours before his killing spree have been placed on furlough for more than a month after the November shooting.

Dean of Studies Nicholas Ejak and Advisor Shawn Hopkins have both left Oxford High School but will continue to work in the district, according to media reports.

The two are named in two civil lawsuits attorney Ven Johnson has filed against the district on behalf of six students and families who were victims of the shooting. The attorney claimed the county “covered up” its role in the shooting by furloughing the two.

Crumbley, now 16, was charged with first-degree murder in the shooting and his parents have been charged with involuntary manslaughter for allegedly allowing their son access to a firearm.

The lawsuits accuse Crumbley, his parents, James and Jennifer Crumbley; and school staff, including Ejak and Hopkins, for negligence.

Johnson said the suspensions prove the school district “has absolutely no interest in investigating the mistakes it made that left four students dead, seven injured and hundreds traumatized.”

Ejak and Hopkins both met with Crumbley and his parents to discuss sinister drawings he made just hours before the school was attacked, the district attorney said.

Crumbley allegedly claimed the drawings were for a video game and his parents refused to take him home, prosecutors said.

Tate Myre, 16; Madisyn Baldwin, 17; Hana St Juliana, 14; and Justin Shilling, 17, died in the tragic shooting.

The drawings are said to have been captioned: “The thoughts will not stop. Help me.” School officials who met with Ethan Crumbley have been secretly furloughed
