Answers sought at Lincoln-Sudbury

LINCOLN-SUDBURY

An overflow crowd of somber residents came to Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School last night, seeking to understand how the school's seeming safety was shattered when a 15-year-old freshman was stabbed to death last week and a special needs student was charged in the killing.

But school and town officials had no ready answers, only promises to conduct a thorough investigation of school policies as they analyze what led to the Jan. 19 killing of James Alenson, the Globe reports today.

Fellow student John Odgren, 16, of Princeton, who was enrolled in a program monitoring special education students with emotional or behavioral problems, was charged with fatally stabbing Alenson in a boys' bathroom.
