Community Responds To Plea Surrounding Karrington Penny's Death

During a meeting of the Benton Harbor Legislative Committee, members of the community shared their connection to 18-year old Karrington Penny of Benton Harbor. His body was found unresponsive New Year's Day on East Empire. An instructor at the Bridge Academy of Benton Harbor, Marshall Downs, says Penny was a very special member of the Academy.


Penny's body was found with high levels of alcohol and drugs in his system, detectives say his death was accidental. Penny's parents are questioning that, and want to know more. The Committee is sending a recommendation to the full body to formalize a special investigation into the case. That recommendation is expected to be taken up Tuesday night.
