Charlotte, NC -- Charlotte/Douglas International Airport plans to increase police staffing and make other structural improvements to improve security after an apparent stowaway died in the wheel well of a jet flying to Boston.

Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Chief Rodney Monroe and City Manager Curt Walton on Monday read city council members a summary of their investigation into the death.

Sixteen-year-old Delvonte Tisdale died Nov. 15 in a US Airways Boeing 737-400 jet headed from Charlotte to Boston.

Officials refused to provide a copy of the investigation to The Associated Press on Monday and the men told council members they couldn't release it because it has been classified by the federal government.

Monroe says his investigators have determined how Tisdale entered the airport, but he would not elaborate.
