26, 2006

An 18-year-old man shot and killed his girlfriend and himself last week in rural Hocking County. The young man’s father says his son was treated for mental illness at 3 facilities in the last month, and had several run-ins with police. Now the father is accusing Ohio’s mental health care system and local law enforcement of failing his son.
