Autistic teen dies in bus after driver leaves to have sex with co-worker

WHITTIER, Calif. (WSVN) — A California court has released details regarding the death of a male teen with autism who was left alone on a school bus.

Fox 11 reports that a court filing says Armando Ramirez was having sex with a married co-worker while 19-year-old Paul Lee was left on a hot school bus for seven hours in September 2015. Lee was later found dead.

According to Fox 11, attorneys for Lee’s family say Ramirez was texting his co-worker and setting up a time to meet, and didn’t notice the non-verbal teen sitting a few rows behind him. The family is now suing the bus company and the school district.

Ramirez is currently serving a two-year sentence in Lee’s death.
