“Don’t do it,” suspected gunman Ethan Crumbley’s mother texted him the day of the deadly attack, but she made no mention of his impending attack on a school. Michigan High School. Instead, attorneys for Jennifer and Jason Crumbley said, she was telling him not to commit suicide.
Jennifer Crumbley’s lackluster appeal to her son is a symptom of a larger pattern of alleged parental neglect revealed by prosecutors this week during the pair’s ongoing trial. In court documents filed Thursday, prosecutors accused the Crumbleys of ignoring “troublesome” cues from their son, including animal torture cases and bloody sketches. blood, worrisome. Instead, they spent hours with their beloved horses and – in Jennifer’s case – firmly pursued an extramarital affair.

Their son, Ethan Crumbley, has been charged with 24 felony counts, including four counts of murder and one count of terrorism. He pleaded not guilty to all charges, and will be tried as an adult. If convicted, he could spend the rest of his life behind bars.
The Crumbleys “knew their son was depressed, that he was into guns … that he had studied ammunition while in school and that he had been shown violent videos of the morning shootings. that day,” according to prosecutors, but they bought the gun for Ethan as an early Christmas present, leaving it in an unlocked armor.
On November 30, Ethan Crumbley is said to have brought a 9mm Sig Sauer to Oxford High School. The subsequent mass shooting he was accused of ended with the deaths of 4 students: Tate Myre, 16; Hana St. Juliana, 14 years old; Madisyn Baldwin, 17 years old; and Justin Shilling, 17. Six other students and a 47-year-old teacher were injured, according to authorities.

In Thursday’s filing, Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald outlined how Ethan Crumbley “tortured animals (and) even kept a baby bird’s head in a jar on his bedroom floor, and then he took it and put it in the school bathroom.” However, she continued, “parents are focusing on their own issues, things like extramarital problems, financial problems and substance abuse.” The couple also spend up to three hours a night, three or four times a week tending to their horses at a nearby barn, McDonald wrote.
The prosecutor also noted in her filing that Jennifer Crumbley told her boyfriend on the day of the shooting that the alleged murder weapon was in her car.
