Detectives investigating drowning at Riverview school still need to talk to three employees

RIVERVIEW — Detectives still have three Rodgers Middle School employees to interview before they can conclude the investigation into 11-year-old Jennifer Caballero's Oct. 22 drowning death at the school.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is looking into how the girl, who had Down syndrome, slipped past six teacher's aides during gym class and got outside to a pond behind the school. Divers found her at the bottom of the pond after a massive search the day she disappeared.

Sheriff David Gee met with school superintendent MaryEllen Elia and some other district employees Tuesday, the Sheriff's Office said.

After detectives complete interviews with the school employees, the Sheriff's Office will complete its report and meet with the Hillsborough State Attorney's Office to discuss the next step, the Sheriff's Office said.

Investigators expect to complete the interviews by the end of the week.
