Cassidy Murray, a seventh-grade student at Buckingham Browne & Nichols School in Cambridge, died on March 23. There have been a number of dangerous incidents reported over spring break. In Miami Beach, a helicopter crashed into the ocean over the weekend, while a shooting broke out on a Texas beach last week.
“It is with broken hearts that we share the news of the tragic passing of our daughter, Cassidy. Cassidy’s beautiful spirit, genuinely kind heart, bright mind and joyful zest for life will be profoundly missed by all who knew and loved her,” her family said in a statement. “We thank everyone for their love and support and we ask that you please give us the time and space to grieve together privately during this difficult time.”
