OWASSO, OK -- Family and friends came together Monday to say goodbye to an Oologah boy who died in a meningitis outbreak at his school last week.
Andrew Thomas was the first of two Oologah-Talala Lower Elementary School students to die in the outbreak.
The 7-year-old died last Thursday after contracting bacterial meningitis. His family says Andrew went to school Wednesday feeling just fine, but was sent home later in the day because of a fever. He developed a rash and passed away early Thursday morning.
Second grader Shuache Moua, 8, also died. She will be laid to rest Saturday.
Officials from the Rogers County Health Department and Oklahoma State Department of Health have confirmed a female teenage student from the Oologah-Talala public school has developed meningococcal disease.
This increases the number of cases state and local public health officials are investigating to seven.
Joe Mixon's attorney, Kevin Finlay, says Mixon has been cooperating with the investigation and is looking forward to the truth coming out.
