Kyle Plush investigation results to be released this week

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The findings of two investigations into Kyle Plush's death and the response by law enforcement and 911 dispatchers are expected to be released this week.

Cincinnati Police Chief Eliot Isaac will announce the results of his agency's probe Wednesday at a special 9 a.m. meeting of City Council's Law & Public Safety Committee, said Vice Mayor Chris Smitherman, the chairman.

"I have directed city administration to fully brief the Plush family on the findings of the police department's internal investigation prior to anything being released," he said Friday.

The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office is wrapping up its internal investigation and should have it out by Monday.

A third investigation remains ongoing by the Hamilton County Prosecutor's Office. That will take a few more weeks, a spokesman said Friday.

Kyle called 911 twice the afternoon of April 10, begging for help when he became pinned by the third-row rear seat of his van parked at Seven Hills School in Madisonville.

Two offices were dispatched to the Red Bank Road facility, and Deputy Doug Allen was already there conducting a traffic detail assisted in the search, but they did not find him, authorities have said.

The officers were only given information from Kyle's first 911 call, not his second, more detailed one that included more details about his van and location.

The dispatcher who took the second call has told her supervisors she did not hear Kyle, a police report shows.

Kyle's father found his son's lifeless body in the van several hours later.

The Hamilton County Coroner has said he died of asphyxiation.

The police camera footage that Cincinnati police have released so far does not show the officers getting out of their vehicle once they arrived at the school.

It also appears to show they only searched one of the school's parking lots.

The body camera video starts at 3:26 p.m. lasts for three minutes. Toward the end, an officer is heard saying 'I'm gonna shut this off."

The deputy indicated at the scene that day he thought the call might be a prank, according to emergency communication reports.

In light of Kyle's death, Mayor John Cranley and other elected officials have called for a review of the city's 911 center, which has been plagued with issues for years.

There has been a long list of problems with a new CAD (computer aided dispatch) system over the past two years, during which times they've also added new police radios and a new 911 system.

Last week, City Council approved spending nearly a half million dollars to help increase 911 capabilities and to hire nearly a dozen new employees including five dispatchers.

City and police officials are expected to appear Monday morning before Council's Law & Public Safety Committee to announce their action plan to address issues at the 911 center.
