There were ten key findings in this report. Most notably all attackers showed concerning behavior, putting those who encounter this individual on alert.

Resident Special Agent in Charge Carey Dyer says attackers, “may have been on not only on local law enforcement’s radar but maybe the school’s radar and maybe a social worker’s radar and then parents had to deal with the person.”

Special Agent Carey also says, “when a student is on the radar, collaboration between local law enforcement, school administration, parent, students and even mental health professionals is key to prevent future violence.”
