prom stabbing

Excited about finding a date to take to the 2014 junior prom at Jonathan Law High School in Milford, Connecticut, 16-year-old Christopher Plaskon had decided that he would invite classmate, 16-year-old Maren Sanchez. Clearly unable to cope with rejection, Plaskon told his friends that he hoped that Sanchez would die or get “hit by a bus” when she declined his invite. Regardless of the cruel things he said, he never actually threatened Sanchez and his friends believed his ego had just been bruised and that he would gradually calm down and get over it. However, the complete opposite happened; on the day of the prom, Plaskon brutally stabbed Sanchez to death in the stairwell of the school. His trial is scheduled for spring of 2016.

Edit: Christopher Plaskon received 25 years in prison.

16 year old junior Maren Sanchez was stabbed to death by a 16 year old male named Chris Plaskon on Friday morning, 4/25/14, at Jonathan Law High School in Milford, CT. She was supposed to attend her junior prom the same evening. There are no words which can describe such heartfelt loss and tragedy. Another young victim of senseless violence taken much too soon. There are still many raw feelings in the world, the US, and Connecticut in light of the recent school massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT. Many concerned thoughts, prayers, and condolences are with her family and friends. Their anguish must still be hard to bear..
