Will Norton Graduated from HS in Joplin, MO but Never Made it Home … Missing in Joplin along with 1500, Death Toll Rises
Will Norton has been missing since last Sunday … when he was on his way home after graduation in Joplin, Missouri when the devastating tornadoes hit. It was previously reported that Will Norton was sucked out of his vehicle through the sun roof, snapping his seat belt. He had not been seen since.
Sadly, the family of Will Norton has announced that they have received confirmation that he is dead.
It said Friday that the original list of 232 missing or unaccounted for residents had dropped to 156 by Friday, and planned to give an updated total later in the day.
Missouri Department of Public Safety deputy director Andrea Spillars said Friday that at least 90 people on the initial list had been located alive.
But at least six others were identified as among the dead, and some new names had been added to the scroll of the missing. Authorities had cautioned for days that while they believed many on the list were alive and safe, others likely had been killed.
