    It's really the only place to take prisoners with any "issues". It started out that he was "hyperventilating" and it sounds like now he's kinda catatonic...not talking, not eating. I wonder if they considered him to be on something when they arrived at the home. This is a beautiful neighborhood. Sounds like he had a very nice life. Really sad story.

    Now, this is a wild guess, but catatonia could be present in schizophrenia.

    I came upon what appears to be a recently developed website to solicit money for his defense. From what it says, he had mental health issues for several years. This sounds similar to the case of a state senator in Va whose son was bipolar and attacked him with a knife after being denied a place in a psychiatric hospital (then the son killed himself). It doesn't of course mean he is legally insane, but could certainly explain what went on here. Very sad to be raising a child with a lot of promise then this child develop mental health issues, in their late teens/early twenties, which is when a lot of these disorders start to manifest themselves.
    Parents are the ones trying to help them, but sometimes these patients turn on the parents.

    Or depression or it can be a stand alone diagnosis until they get his medical records or are able to diagnose him.

    Oh I am pretty sure he had a diagnosis for several years already. There is a statement on the legal fund website about schizophrenia (even though it doesn't specifically says that's what he has). So I think it's a fair guess he is schizophrenic.
