Girl who collapsed and died while jogging in Deerfield identified


DEERFIELD — The girl found dead after a search by searchers in Deerfield this weekend has been identified as Rose Robert of Deerfield, a recent middle school graduate of the Deerfield Community School.

The girl was found dead near South Road, a short distance from her home, on Saturday, hours after family, friends, neighbors and law enforcement officials began a search when she was late returning home.

She had been missing since leaving to go running earlier in the day.

Rose was a June graduate of Deerfield Community School and planned to move on to high school in the fall.

She was found by a searcher who was familiar with the girl's usual jogging route. Police said she suffered a medical emergency while running and collapsed.

Rescuers performed CPR, but the girl was not responsive and was pronounced dead at the scene.

A memorial service for the girl was held at the Deerfield Community School Sunday evening.

The school's PTO posted its condolences to the girl's family and included a quote she wrote for the school yearbook: "They can turn off the sun, but we all still shine," she wrote. "We all met for a reason. Remember that."

Christie is the real deal

We have found Gov. Chris Christie to be the most consistent, the most confident in his abilities, the most tested under fire, and the most likely to regain the White House from a disastrous Democratic regime.
