Carnival worker found dead at Blessed Trinity Catholic School in Virginia Gardens

Death ruled suicide, Miami-Dade police say

VIRGINIA GARDENS, Fla. – A carnival worker committed suicide Wednesday at Blessed Trinity Catholic School in Virginia Gardens, authorities said.

Sky 10 was above the school at 4020 Curtiss Pkwy shortly after noon as Miami-Dade police were at the school. 

Archdiocese of Miami spokeswoman Mary Ross said a volunteer went into a storage trailer between 9:30 and 9:45 a.m. and found the body of a carnival worker inside.

She said the school was on lockdown until police completed their investigation, but students were not exposed to the scene or even to authorities on campus.

Ross said Wednesday was the final preparation day ahead of the carnival. 

The worker's identity was not immediately released.
