Cover Report


LETHAL VIOLENCE by youths has risen with the increase in psychiatric drug prescriptions. A sample of recent killers documents the trend.

On May 21, 1998, Kip Kinkel, 14, killed his parents and went on a shooting spree at his Springfield, Oregon, high school – killing two more people and injuring 22. Kinkel was taking both Ritalin and Prozac.

On May 20, 1999, 15-year-old T.J. Solomon opened fire on and wounded six classmates at Heritage High School in Georgia. Solomon was being treated with Ritalin.

Eighteen-year-old Jeremy Strohmeyer raped and murdered a 7-year-old girl in the ladies’ room in a casino on May 25, 1997, one week after starting to take the drug Dexedrine.

On September 27, 1997, Sam Manzie, 15, attacked, raped and strangled to death an 11-year-old boy who had come to his family’s New Jersey home selling items door-to-door for the local PTA. Manzie had been receiving regular psychiatric treatments including the drug Paxil.

Eric Harris, an 18-year-old senior at Columbine High School in Colorado, led the killing spree on April 20, 1999, which took the lives of 12 students and a teacher, before he and his partner took their own lives. Harris had been taking Luvox.
