NOBLESVILLE — A 13-year-old boy has shown no remorse for shooting his teacher and a classmate at his Indianapolis-area school, and he will remain the responsibility of the state juvenile detention system until he is 18, an Indiana judge ruled Wednesday. Hamilton County Circuit Court Judge Paul Felix rejected a request from the boy’s attorneys that he be sent to a private treatment facility for shooting seventh-grade science teacher Jason Seaman and 13-year-old Ella Whistler during the May 25 attack at Noblesville West Middle School. “You went into the school intending to kill not just two people but many people,” Felix told the boy. “You wanted devastation, an inescapable tragedy for the ages.” By Rick Callahan.

JONESTOWN 40 YEARS LATER
OAKLAND, Calif. — Jonestown was the highlight of Mike Touchette’s life — for a time. The 21-year-old Indiana native felt pride pioneering in the distant jungle of Guyana, South America. As a self-taught bulldozer operator, he worked alongside other Peoples Temple members in the humid heat, his blade carving roads and sites for wooden buildings with metal roofs. More than 900 people lived in the agricultural mission, with its dining pavilion, tidy cottages, school, medical facilities and rows of crops. The mass murders and suicides of more than 900 people at Jonestown in Guyana happened 40 years ago this week. By Tim Reiterman. SENT: 1,900 words, photos, video.
