I’m not sure how you introduce a story as senseless as this, but I will ask that we see it as a warning that we have to watch these young relationships better than we do. The kids are being overloaded with so much as such a young age these days that it’s imperative we catch the psychopaths while they’re young and before they can hurt anyone. Like this case here in Connecticut where a young girl just lost her life to an ex-boyfriend with no coping skills.
A jilted teen killed a 16-year-old girl in a Connecticut high school on Friday after she dumped him and refused to go to prom with him, friends and witnesses said.
The violence erupted after Chris Plaskon, also 16, shoved his ex, Maren Sanchez, down the stairs and tried to choke her inside Jonathan Law High School in Milford about 7:15 a.m., friends told the Daily News.
The boy – using a kitchen knife he brought from home – then stabbed Sanchez in her neck, witnesses and cops said.
“She was screaming,” one friend, who was inside the building at the time of the attack, told The News. “There were students in the hallway when it happened. The kids who saw it are all a wreck.”
Emergency workers found the bleeding teen in the stairwell and rushed her to Bridgeport Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Plaskon was taken into custody at the scene.
Police did not officially identify the suspect, because he was a juvenile. No charges were immediately filed against the teen.
The school was placed on lockdown, but the order was lifted soon after police arrived.
Students and staff were dismissed from school about 9 a.m.
The school’s junior prom was scheduled for Friday night at a banquet hall in nearby Stratford. It wasn’t immediately clear if the event would be rescheduled.
