Environmental activist Erin Brockovich tells USA TODAY she is investigating the case of more than a dozen teens from one upstate New York school plagued by mysterious, Tourette’s-like symptoms.

One neurologist who has seen most of the affected girls has diagnosed their illness as psychological in origin; but that diagnosis has been difficult for some parents and community members to accept.

Brockovich told USA TODAY that at the request of local residents, she is looking into a 1970 train accident that spilled cyanide and an industrial solvent called trichloroethene close to the site of the Le Roy, New York school.

“We don’t have all the answers, but we are suspicious,” Brockovich told the newspaper, which also reported that at least one boy has now come down with similar symptoms.”
