JACKSON HOLE, Wyo. (AP) - Operations at a Jackson group home are still suspended nearly two months after a student died at the facility.

The Jackson Hole News and Guide reports (https://bit.ly/1foVYg1 ) representatives of the Wyoming Department of Family Services confirmed this week that an ongoing investigation has stalled most services at Van Vleck House.

The department began reviewing operations at Van Vleck House, a long-term residential placement for at-risk youth, following the student’s death June 25. Initial police reports indicated the death was the result of either self-harm or an accident.

Students have been pulled from the Van Vleck House and relocated to other crisis shelters in the state.

A Teton Youth and Family Services spokeswoman says they have been cooperating with officials during the state’s investigation and are hoping to resume services soon.
