USA v. Raymond Fryberg [6 pp, 362 Kb]

Several months after the shooting by Jaylen Fryberg, his father (Raymond Lee Fryberg, Jr.) was arrested for illegal possession of firearms. Mr. Fryberg reportedly was not permitted to own guns due to a protection from abuse (PFA) order that had been filed against him in 2002. Mr. Fryberg had allegedly threatened and abused a woman he was involved with and who was the mother of a child of his (not Jaylen). This is the first such information I have seen regarding Jaylen’s family life. This is of particular concern because when this was filed in 2002, Jaylen was three years old. According to the document, the woman had an intimate relationship with Mr. Fryberg in 2001. Initially, two temporary orders (PFAs) were issued. Eventually, the court concluded that Mr. Fryberg had committed domestic violence and a permanent order was put in place. Thus, Mr. Fryberg was intimately involved with and abusing another woman during Jaylen’s early years. When Jaylen’s parents married, and whether or not Mr. Fryberg was living with Jaylen and his mother during this period is unclear. Further still, the document notes that Mr. Fryberg pleaded no contest to a charge of violating the order in 2012, thus indicating that he had resumed contact with the woman.

Biswanath Halder · Case Western Reserve University
1976: Halder v. Avis [2 pp, 83 Kb]

2014: Halder v. Tibals [11 pp, 118 Kb]

Eric Harris / Dylan Klebold · Columbine High School

There is some redundancy in these sources, but I have chosen to include different versions of the same content rather than choose one version over another. Note: immediately after the attack, someone posted a fake webpage claiming to be Eric Harris. As far as I know, any online content that is not included in the JCSO material is fraudulent.

This document contains three school assignments in which Harris wrote about his childhood, highlighting the many fun times and pleasant memories he had of his younger years. 

Eric Harris’s Autopsy Report [9 pp, 333 Kb]

For some reason, there was no follow through and the search never occurred.

Charles Whitman · University of Texas
Charles Whitman’s Autopsy Report [3 pp, 118 Kb]

Whitman's autopsy is notable because it found a brain tumor and there has been significant speculation regarding the potential role of this tumor in Whitman's violent behavior. The autopsy says of the tumor, “no correlation with psychosis.” Whitman's biographer, Gary Lavergne, writing in 1997 commented, “in the past thirty years nearly all of the physicians and criminologists who have made themselves familiar with the case have pronounced the tumor ‘innocent'” (p. 268).

Interviews with People Who Knew Whitman
