Police say a Texas boy found dead hanging from a hook in a school bathroom in February may have been playing a game called "run and jump." Students at the Not Your Ordinary School charter school told police after the death of Tevin Park-Flowers, that boys sometimes ran along benches lining the walls of the bathroom. Students called the game "run and jump" because it includes jumping from bench to bench and to touch the ceiling, according to the report released Thursday. Tevin had been excused from a school assembly to go to the bathroom. When he didn't return, a male teacher went looking for him. He found Tevin caught on a hook by his shirt. The boy died at the hospital two days later. Police say his shirt collar had cut off his oxygen. They also considered suicide or homicide but found no evidence to support either possibility.
