Prosecutor Reveals Details Surrounding Text Messages Exchanged During Michigan School Shooting

  • by

A prosecutor has released details about text messages exchanged between Ethan Crumble and his mother during the shooting at Oxford High School in Oxford, Michigan.

At a press conference Friday, Oakland County Prosecuting Attorney Karen McDonald announced charges against Ethan Crumbley’s parents in connection with Tuesday’s alleged shooting.

Both Jennifer Crumble and James Crumble were charged with four counts of involuntary manslaughter.

McDonald’s detailed the events leading up to the shooting that left four dead and seven others injured.

He noted that on November 21, a school teacher noticed “Ethan Crumble was searching for bullets on his cell phone during class and reported it to school officials.”

McDonald continued, “Jennifer Crumbley was contacted via voicemail by school staff regarding the child’s inappropriate internet searches. School staff stated that they followed up on the voicemail using email but No response from either parent.”

He added that Jennifer Crumble “exchanged text messages with her son that day about the incident, and said, ‘Lol, I’m not mad at you, you’ve got to learn not to get caught.’ ‘

According to McDonald, on the day of the shooting, “Ethan Crumbley’s teacher found a note on Ethan’s desk that disturbed him until he took a picture of it on his cell phone.”

He added, “The note included the following: a drawing of a semi-automatic handgun with the words, ‘Thoughts won’t stop helping me.’ Another part is a drawing of a bullet with the following words above the bullet, ‘Blood everywhere.’ ”

Between the drawings of the gun and bullet is a drawing of “a man who appears to have been shot twice and is covered in blood. Below the image is a drawing of a laughing emoji. Below the line are the words ‘My life is worthless. ‘ and to the right of it are the words ‘The world is dead.’ “

Ethan Crumble’s parents were then told to go to the school. He was removed from the classroom and taken to the office with his bag.

“The tipster found the drawing but the shooter changed it. A drawing of a gun and a bloody figure saying ‘Help me’ and ‘My life is worthless,’ ‘The world is dead’ and ‘Blood everywhere.’ It changed all that,” MacDonald explained.

His parents saw the drawing and assigned their son to counseling for 48 hours.
