Trevor Varinecz (5035)

10/16/2009: With a high-functioning form of Asperger's syndrome, the mental stability of Varinecz declined when his individual mentoring time at school was cut from 900 hours to 45 hours per week. He ended up stabbing a school resource officer seven times with a WWII bayonet, who shot him dead in self-defense. Evidence suggested a deliberate suicide. The family's wrongful death suit was settled for $175K.
