This is no excuse for murder at all. None. Zip. Nada.
I would like nothing better than this murderer and his negligent parents outed, and I am sure they are already outed on Twitter as I said in an earlier post today. There is no way this could ever be secret anyway, not with over 700 students and dozens of faculty at SMS, plus police, neighbors, and so on down the line. It's impossible to keep a lid on it.
It shouldn't be, anyway. If this kid were alive instead of dead, it's almost certain his name would be revealed as it is has been done in many other murder cases involving killers who are minors.
I will just add that somebody on Twitter said they had seen the picture of the killer on the news and said what his name was. Regardless, the information is out there. It should be official instead of the public relying on Twitter rumors like this:
