    Wow - how terribly sad. I wonder what the motive was?

    A 17-year old male student is currently in police custody.

    Memphis Junior Academy is a private school run through the Seventh-Day Adventist Church.

    Oh my God, it's a woman. (Pardon my protective nature about the opposite sex, born in the '50s, can't help it.) Horrendous, whomever it turned out to be.

    Here is the school website. Run by the Seventh-day Adventists. Kindergarten up to 11th grade.

    RIP Mrs. York.


    School just started on Monday. What could have happened in two days to have a young person stab a Principal to death? This poor woman.

    The call came into police at 11:14AM. LE was on their way to the school just after noon.

    Obviously we don't know if this is true, but it took that long for law to get out to the school? If so my city isn't the only one operating with too few police officers. 45 minutes?

    More violence in school. This is so sad. What is wrong with people?? At least they have someone in custody.

    Justice for Travis


    Sometimes the first step towards forgiveness is understanding that the other person is a complete idiot.

    Article has been updated, student has been named and given his motive:

    The Commercial Appeal quoted an MPD affidavit, ""Eduardo Marmolejo admitted that he had stabbed his teacher Suzette York multiple times because he did not like her and she made him angry," the affidavit read. "(He) said that he had been planning to kill Mrs. York since May 2011 when he learned he would be returning to the Memphis Junior Academy. (He) said that he planned to kill Mrs. York (Wednesday) because he knew she would be alone in the classroom with him."

    It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything.

    I hope he likes the inside of a prison cell for the next 60 years, because that's where he's going.

    Neighbor Describes Principal Murder Suspect as a "Smart Alec"
    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.
