The death of a special needs student who passed away 19 days after he was attacked in a Washington, D.C., classroom is under investigation.
WUSA and NBC in Washington on Tuesday identified the victim as 17-year-old Joevon Smith.
Smith also said he was sprayed with “perfume” during the Jan. 10 attack.
He was pronounced dead Monday night at a local hospital. Investigators are awaiting autopsy results.
There have been no arrests, but the probe — which is now a death investigation — is ongoing, according to cops.
“We cannot say that the alleged assault is related to this death,” police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck told the Daily News on Tuesday.
