STILLWATER, OK — Yesterday, 13-year-old Cade Poulos came to Stillwater Junior High School dressed as the Batman villain Two Face, then used a handgun to kill himself in a hallway full of fellow students.

Poulos was in the crowded hallway at around 7:50 a.m. Wednesday. It was Super-Hero Dress Up Day at the school, and for reasons unknown, Poulos arrived dressed as a villain. It was during a prayer time before the morning bell sounded that Poulos pulled out a handgun and shot himself in the head.

Immediately after the shooting, the school was locked down, students were evacuated, and parents were asked to pick up their children via a district messaging system.

Initial reports were hinting at bullying as the reason for the teen’s decision to commit suicide, possibly because of some statements made on a Facebook memorial. But Stillwater superintendent Ann Caine said the district had no records of Poulos being bullied and his family have also stated that Poulus was not a victim of bullying.

Whatever the reason was, we may never know what caused Poulos to kill himself in front of his peers. Reports are that Poulos did not leave a suicide note.

How cynical have I become that the only thing about this story that shocked me was that there’s a public junior high school that allows prayer time and has Super Hero Dress-Up Day?
