So an eighteen-year old in Pennsylvania killed the fifty-year-old parents of his fourteen-year-old girlfriend and then “kidnapped” her. The police apprehended him after he ran his mother’s vehicle into a tree in Indiana.
The event is horrible, but something else stuck out at me:
Mike Borden [the girl’s father] worked for a printing company, and the children were home-schooled, said neighbor Tod Sherman. Sherman said the family knew Ludwig [the accused] through a home-schooling network.
Can someone explain the point of this? After all, when other teenagers kill adults by shooting them in the head, does the media make a point of the children of the adults being public schooled and that the family knew the accused through the public school?
I can just imagine the implications people are going to make with this one.
