Posts about real school tragedy, crime and/or events can be upsetting.

Robin Lyons BlogBLOG POST #184: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific crime involving three high school friends.

She was a 16-year-old honors student living in a small close-knit community when she went missing. After her parents reviewed the security video from their apartment complex, they saw she’d slipped out her bedroom window and got into the back seat of a car. The video was too grainy to see make, model, or license plate number.

Robin Lyons BlogBLOG POST #182: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific crime involving sexual assault at a high school.

There were sexual assault reports from more than ten victims over several years. In the end, eight victims, boys, and girls told the judge their shocking stories.

A 14-year-old freshman garnered the courage to bypass school administration—because he’d seen they weren’t addressing the issue—and went to the school’s resource officer, a detective with the local police department.

BLOG POST #171: This week, I’m sharing research on a specific crime that occurred a few years ago involving a high school Dean of Academy and a 17-year-old student.

New Job

The 50-something man was selected from a pool of about 50 applicants and had been with the high school serving as the Dean of Academy and family outreach coordinator for two months.

The newly hired Dean of Academy was known as a community organizer and youth minister in the area for decades nicknamed ‘Rev,’ a familiar face, often worked with police and helped gang members turn their lives around.
