The janitor is currently still working at Lakeside High School. In 2004, a 16-year-old shot himself in the head, and the janitor was made to clean up the blood. Nine Mile Falls is northwest of Spokane.
The lawsuit states that the janitor became emotionally distraught and physically ill cleaning up blood and tissue. Her lawyer, William Powell of Spokane, is claiming that the superintendent should have hired a professional cleaning service.
