KNOX â€” A community is in mourning following the tragic loss of a Knox High School student. Andrew â€śDrewâ€ť Shearin was a 17-year-old junior whose life touched an unbelievable number of hearts before he was prematurely torn away from his family and friends, spurring an astounding amount of sorrow in the community.
Shearin's death is the result of a single-car accident which occurred on S.R. 8 in Starke County Monday night. While the accident is still under investigation, police said alcohol and drugs are not believed to be a factor.
