The patriarch of the Stone family, Roy Stone, passed away on Wednesday. Mr. Stone began his career as a teacher in 1934 at the Cline School here in Cumberland County, eventually serving as principal for Crossville Elementary.

However, Beaty says she was home when Levi choked on a cookie he got from her cookie jar. While the preliminary autopsy showed blunt force injuries, but Beaty says her son was never abused, instead, believes a combination of factors contributed to the child’s death-citing a milk allergy and blood and heart disorders.
