8-year-old Taylorsville student suspended after reportedly showing off 'death list' on school bus

BARTHOLOMEW COUNTY, Ind. -- A Taylorsville Elementary School student was suspended this week after school officials say they had a "death list" they were sharing with another student on the school bus. 

Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation officials say they received a report that an 8-year-old was sharing the list on a bus Wednesday and they notified law enforcement. 

The student involved was suspended until school officials could have a meeting with the child's family. School times were not affected on Thursday. 

BCSC sent the following message to parents at Taylorsville Elementary School on Thursday.
