(Henderson, NV) — Over a thousand people gathered Saturday at Green Valley High, to remember the life and accomplishments of 17-year-old William Mootz. His body was found Friday in a marsh near Sam Boyd Stadium. Police, firefighters and volunteers had been searching the washes of Henderson since Wednesday, when Mootz fell into a fast-moving flood channel near Stephanie Street and Sunset Road.

Mootz was to have started his senior year today. Instead, there will be grief counselors at Green Valley High. A fund in honor of William Mootz has been set up at Nevada State Bank.
