GULF BREEZE, Fla. (AP) - Returning from Christmas break will be especially difficult for the students of one Panhandle school district.
The Santa Rosa County School district is making grief counselors available after two Christmas Eve tragedies.
On Christmas Eve, 17-year-old William "Cody" Goodman was shot and killed by police after leading them on a high-speed chase. Also on Christmas Eve, Gulf Breeze baseball pitcher William "Brandon" Aydelott was arrested and charged with killing his mother, a popular middle school teacher for the district. Aydelott could face life in prison if convicted.
The Pensacola News Journal (http://on.pnj.com/19TC9YE ) reports community members are expressing support for the returning students through social media. Students have also erected a make-shift memorial at Gulf Breeze High School to honor Goodman and Sharon Aydelott.
