Owasso Police released body camera footage, school security camera footage, and 911 calls from their investigation into the death of a 16-year-old Owasso High School student.

The body camera footage shows Nex Benedict and Benedict's mother in the hospital, talking to an Owasso Police Officer about the fight at school that happened earlier that afternoon.

Benedict only met the girls involved while they were in "In-School Placement" (ISP) together that week.

Here's a transcript of part of the interview captured by the officer's body cam.

Nex: "They've been antagonizing... you know the people that I got caught with?"

Officer: "You mean, from the other day? The vaping situation?"

Nex: "Yeah, yeah, that one."

----------

Nex: "We don't know each other."

Officer: "You know of each other, with the vape situations and all that."

Nex: "No. Before this ISP thing, We never saw each other. They're freshmen, we're sophomores. We didn't know any."

Benedict told the officer the girls in the bathroom were making fun of the way Benedict and their friends were laughing about something.

Here is the transcript of what Benedict said happened next:

Nex: "They were talking about us, in front of us. So I went up there and I poured water on them. And then all three of them came at me."

Nex: They grabbed onto my hair. I grabbed onto them. I threw one of them into a paper towel dispenser. Then they got my legs out from under me and got me on the ground and started beating me."

This is still an active investigation by the Owasso Police Department.

Police also released two 911 calls on Friday, made by Benedict's mother from the hospital and then the following day when Benedict was struggling to breathe.

In the call, Benedict's mother sounds understandably distraught and tells the dispatcher, Benedict had been in a fight the day before at school.

Here's part of the transcript from those calls:

Sue Benedict: "I need an ambulance here quickly. I don't know what's going on. My daughter, she's posturing, she is 16."

Dispatch: "I have medics on the way, I need to know how her breathing is."

Sue: "She's breathing in. Her eyes, they open but she's doing like a uh.. like really quick and her hands are posturing already."

Dispatch: "Does she take any illegal drugs, not that I care but."

Sue: "No she does not.

Dispatch: "She doesn't smoke or vape or any of that stuff?"

Sue: She has vaped, yes!"

Benedict was taken to the hospital and later died.

Investigators are still waiting on the toxicology report for Benedict and the medical examiners final report which will show the cause and manner of death.

As a reminder, once the police investigation is complete, they will send all of the evidence to the district attorney's office to determine if there were any crimes committed.
