Kip Kinkel, a 15-year-old student at Thurston High School in Springfield, OR, shocked the nation in May 1998 by first killing his parents and then driving to school and shooting many of his classmates. He is now in prison, serving 111 years without possibility of parole. Frontline includes interviews with Kinkel's sister and others who knew the boy well. His long-term mental health struggles are revealed by the notes obtained from the psychotherapist who saw him on a weekly basis prior to his killing rampage. Part of the crime footage used is rather graphic, showing some of the carnage left in the wake of Kinkel's attack.
