Connecticut Teenager Stabbed to Death Over High School Prom Rejection

Now this is senseless. At NYT, "Connecticut Teenager Is Fatally Stabbed by Fellow Student, Police Say."

A 16-year-old student was stabbed to death by another student in the hallway of a Connecticut high school on Friday morning, the authorities said.

The victim, identified as Maren Sanchez, was attacked by a 16-year-old boy at about 7:15 a.m. on the first floor of the Jonathan Law High School in Milford, Chief Keith Mello of the Milford Police Department said at a news conference midmorning. Both Ms. Sanchez and the attacker, who was not identified because he is a minor, were students at the school.

School staff members tried to resuscitate Ms. Sanchez after the attack, Chief Mello said. She was pronounced dead at 7:43 a.m. at Bridgeport Hospital. The attacker was subdued by staff members and taken into police custody, Chief Mello said.

Chief Mello gave no indication of a possible motive, but said investigators were looking into reports that a dispute over the junior class prom, scheduled for Friday evening, could have prompted the attack. School officials canceled classes for the rest of the day and later announced that the prom was canceled as well.

“This is a very raw, a very fresh investigation,” Chief Mello said...
The New York Post isn't being so circumspect about the killer's motive, "Teen girl stabbed to death at school after rejecting prom invitation."

So, a beautiful young life cut short, and a family shattered, and you know the progressive "criminal justice" authorities will do everything possible to keep the killer from doing hard time. And don't even think about the death penalty. Not only are minors exempt, but Connecticut banned capital punishment in 2012.

How long will until another beautiful young life cut down? There's simply no deterrent, and victims' families get no justice. But we'll see. We'll see.
