Estacado High Junior Dies After Fall in Dallas Hotel Parking Area

Facebook

A memorial fund has been set up for an Estacado High School student that died over the weekend.

Lubbock ISD junior Quinton Smith died on Saturday while on a trip to Dallas for a national chess tournament.

The Dallas Morning News reports that the 17-year-old Smith was found unresponsive after a fall in the parking area of the Hilton Anatole hotel, located on the North Stemmons Freeway. Reports indicate that Smith took the fatal fall from the top floor of the hotel around 4 p.m. Saturday.

Dallas police are investigating Smith’s fall, and the Dallas County Medical Examiner’s office has not issued a ruling on the death as of yet.

Smith was a very active student, with involvements in the chess team, tennis team, mock trial, Law Skills USA, and other events around LISD. He had also recently finished a major role in Estacado Theatre’s production of “Seussical Jr.”

Counseling staff from the district are on hand at the Estacado Campus today.

The memorial fund to assist Smith’s family with burial expenses has been set up at PlainsCapital Bank.
