NEWBURGH, Ind. (WFIE) - The Warrick County Coroner’s office and local law enforcement are investigating the death of an adult employee at Castle South Middle School.

They say medics responded Friday to an emergency medical situation at the school and the coroner was called a short time later.

The coroner says an autopsy will be scheduled later Friday for 49-year-old Beth Diekmann.

Authorities want to stress there has been no danger to students or staff.

Just last week the school lost another employee.

They said Anita Conapinski died after a long illness.

The school had crisis team members on hand.
