The 16-year-old group home resident charged in connection with the stabbing death of a Blendon Township woman Oct. 20 was the subject of Children Services critical incident report involving a knife less than two weeks earlier.
The operator of the group home, Consumer Support Services, filed more than 500 pages worth of critical incident reports with Franklin County Children Services in the 18 months over the past year. They include multiple incidents involving the 16-year-old boy charged in connection with the stabbing death of Jane Juergens while she was jogging near her home.
One report, filed less than two weeks before the murder, says the boy bought a knife two days earlier. The report says staff members “searched the room and and found meds and a butter knife with a taped handle.
Another report just 3 days before the murder says the accused teen was caught looking at pornography at school.
In separate incidents earlier in the year, he surrendered a knife to staff before he “began destroying property” at the group home. Another report details how the boy “tried to exchange his Xbox for a gun.”
