Police turning over tape in hotel drowning

        EVENDALE — Police said Monday they plan to turn over a surveillance tape from a hotel where a Chicago teen drowned Saturday when they meet this morning with Hamilton County prosecutors.

        They also will discuss whether charges will be filed in connection with the death of Derrick Spencer, 14.

        Derrick came on a school field trip with the Nathan R. Goldblatt School in Chicago to Paramount's Kings Island. He was found at the bottom of a pool at the Quality Inn, 1717 Glendale-Milford Road.

        He had been missing for about 30 to 45 minutes when he was found in the indoor pool at 12:30 a.m. Saturday, police said.

        There was no lifeguard on duty at the time the boy was found. Hotel officials had opened the pool area to the group from the school.
