Waltham Officials Say Middle School Student Had ‘Kill List’

WALTHAM (CBS) — Waltham Public Schools says one of their middle school students created a list of students he wanted to kill for allegedly making fun of him.

According to a letter sent home to parents, a teacher at John F. Kennedy Middle School noticed a list on the student’s desk titled “Students who make fun of me” followed by three names on Friday.

When the teacher asked about the list, the student allegedly answered, “This is my kill list,” according to the letter sent from principal Jack Cawley.

Waltham Police and the parents of the student and the students on the list were notified.

The student and the three on the list, are receiving support and services, Cawley noted.

There’s no word on whether the student will face disciplinary action.
