    Not a lot coming out on the crime yet. 18-year-old suspect was a friend of the victim's older brother.

    Deputies were told on the police radio that the victim had been stabbed in the neck, reports the San Francisco Gate.

    The day before the stabbing, deputies had also been called to the home on Saturday on a request for a psychological evaluation of Schultz.

    Says he wanted to feel what it was like before the end of the world. He sounds psychotic.

    In measured tones, Shultz smiled as he described his family's increasing concern over his odd behavior and mental health in the past month, culminating with a brief hospitalization at the county hospital Saturday, before he said a doctor discharged him and sent him in a cab to his mother's Discovery Bay home. An argument with his mother led him to the Almgren residence, where he spent Saturday night before stabbing Jordon Almgren early Sunday morning, the teen said. Jordon's older brother had been his best friend since sixth grade, he said.

    Contra Costa prosecutors charged William Shultz with murder and special circumstances of lying in wait Tuesday; however, they will not seek the death penalty because of his age and lack of criminal past, a deputy district attorney said.

    Post Defense: 'No question' mental illness played role in stabbing death of 9-year-old

    By Noelle Walker, Reporter
    DISCOVERY BAY, Calif. (KTVU and Wires) - The suspect in the Sunday morning stabbing death of 9-year old Jordon Almgren made his first court appearance Wednesday.

    Eighteen-year-old William Shultz is charged with murder with special circumstances of "lying in wait."

    He faces life in prison if convicted. The District Attorney filed an intent not to seek the death penalty because of Shultz's age and lack of prior criminal record. He is due back in court May 22nd.

    "There is absolutely no doubt that mental illness is what caused this event," Contra Costa County Public Defender, Robin Lipetzky, said. "Somewhere along the line, you have to wonder if there was a failure in the system."

    Lipetzky said the Shultz family tried "for weeks and months" to get help for their son.

    On Saturday morning, one day before the stabbing, Shultz's family called the Contra Costa County Sheriff's Department, concerned about his mental state. more at link: http://www.ktvu.com/story/28936072/d...-of-9-year-old

    Post Discovery Bay: Attorney for family of slain boy says family knew nothing of suspect's

    DISCOVERY BAY -- An attorney for the family of 9-year-old stabbing victim Jordon Almgren spoke for the first time Wednesday night, stressing that the family knew nothing of any mental issues involving suspected killer William Shultz when they invited the longtime family friend to spend the night.
    Shultz, 18, was best friends with Jordon's older brother, but attorney Michael Verna said the family was blindsided by the mental health problems he was facing.
    "The family knew nothing about his history, and they knew nothing about him seeing a psychiatrist that same day (he slept over at their house), Verna said. "They had absolutely no idea he was having any medical difficulties."

    "The family knew nothing about his history, and they knew nothing about him seeing a psychiatrist that same day (he slept over at their house), Verna said. "They had absolutely no idea he was having any medical difficulties." I'm shocked the family did not know about Shultz issues. Thank you for posting this recent article.

    What I'm gathering: his family knew he had problems and tried to get him help as recently as that day, but police didn't think he was bad enough to 5150 him (take him to a psych hospital), so he goes to the Almgren house and tells them he had a fight with his family. The Almgren family was suckered in because they didn't know anything of his history. If only the Schultz family had warned the Almgren family...
