    Professor: "A young life ended by a senseless act. And the person that killed had her had no reguard for life it self. Parents really teach you sons so they will not grow up to be killers."

    Did it ever occur to you that this was simply self-defense? Possibly that the deceased girl was actually the perp? It said No Charges have been filed and the investigation is ongoing. They probably know exactly who killed her. They just need to determine if there are grounds for murder charges.

    And concerning how I teach my children.... Yes, I would tell my child to kill if its self-defense. Leave no doubt. Take the Perp out.

    Regardless of what the fight was over, a young woman lost her life violently. Hopefully, the killer(s) will be bought to justice.
