Hopkinton Police Department Mikayla Miller Statement

contribute's picture

The Hopkinton community mourns the tragic loss of 16-year-old Mikayla Miller. Our most heartfelt thoughts go out to her family and all those who care for her.

As is the case with all death investigations, the Middlesex District Attorney oversees the investigation. The Hopkinton Police Department continues to work closely with the Massachusetts State Police, the Middlesex District Attorney's Office and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner to ascertain the facts surrounding her death. As the District Attorney said earlier today, the investigation is open and ongoing, with no final conclusions of any kind. We will continue to assist the District Attorney’s investigation in every way possible.

We are aware of the concerns expressed by many in the community over this tragedy. The District Attorney, earlier today, provided information concerning the investigation. Because the investigation remains ongoing and at the District Attorney’s direction, and because many of the persons involved are minors, we are unable to provide any more information than the District Attorney has already provided. The Police Department is committed, however, to communicating additional information as soon as it is appropriate and permissible to do so.
