    Prom date dispute

    A 16-year-old female student at a Connecticut high school died Friday after she was attacked and stabbed inside the school's hallway adjacent to a stairwell, authorities said at a press conference.
    Maren Sanchez, a junior at Jonathan Law High School in Milford, was pronounced dead about 30 minutes after the 7:14 a.m. attack at Bridgeport Hospital despite attempts by teachers and emergency responders to save her life, authorities said.
    A student at the school and local media reports indicate that Sanchez was attacked because she refused to go to the prom with the attacker later in the evening. Milford police would not confirm a motive.
    "We'll get the bottom of it, or how it happened or why it happened," Keith Mello, the Milford police chief, said.
    The suspect, also 16, whose name is being withheld because he's a minor, was subdued by teachers immediately after the attack and is in custody, authorities said. The victim and suspect appeared to be "friends" on Facebook. One student at the school said the victim and the attacker were friendly.
    The school was put on lockdown Friday morning and students were sent home after the stabbing. A former faculty member from the school told FoxNews.com that the suspect was arrested.
    Police said that the attack was an isolated incident and no other students were in danger. The school's prom, scheduled for Friday night, was postponed to an as-yet undetermined date, a school official said.
    Sanchez was an honor student and swim team manager who was heavily involved with community service, particularly causes like underage drinking and veterans' services, school officials said.
    A junior at the school told FoxNews.com that a teacher who witnessed the attack said Sanchez was asked to the prom by the attacker inside a stairwell at the school. Sanchez, who has a boyfriend, said no to the date, and the suspect began to strangle her, the student said. He pushed her down a flight of stairs and stabbed her.
    Two male teachers eventually took the suspect to the principal's office until police arrived. The student said she saw the suspect being handcuffed and he "looked angry."

    I wonder what meds the boy is on. Most all of these attacks by these young males have that as a commonality.

    According to Daily News and other sites, they say Twitter acquaintances have identified the killer as 16 year old Chris Plaskon. I'm pretty sure it's the one in white, from a few years ago..

    Here is his Facebook . Inside, one of his "friends" is murder victim, Maren Sanchez.


    Sorry to disappoint, Ed.

    I agree with that whole meds thing too Fuzzy. Unfortunately, what we have seen up to this point is just the tip of the iceberg. Wait until another 10-15 years when a large percentage of these drugged kids are older and even more fucked in the head with all the shit they've been taking. There's gonna be ticking time bombs everywhere.

    Agreed. We are an over medicated society. With medicines that have side effects that are discovered after years of use and pharmaceutical companies that pay millions to hide them. A lot of these bazaar killings and mass shootings have the records sealed as to what medicines these young men are on.

    I can't produce the research now because I'm on my phone at work but there is documented evidence from a study on this subject which explains how it affects these young male brains and causes this violent side effect in some.

    she looks older than 16.

    it's tragic....how do people make the decision to settle disagreements by murdering someone. how does this happen? are we so damaged as a society that we can expect things like this to happen more often?
