The mother of Columbine High School shooter Dylan Klebold explains what may have caused her son to do what he did

(INTELLIHUB) — Sue Klebold, the mother of one of the Columbine school shooters Dylan Klebold, gave a live presentation at TEDTalks in February of 2017, where she talked about what she’s learned from the tragedy after her son Dylan and his friend Eric murdered 13 people on April 20, 1999.

According to the video’s description:

Sue Klebold is the mother of Dylan Klebold, one of the two shooters who committed the Columbine High School massacre, murdering 12 students and a teacher. She’s spent years excavating every detail of her family life, trying to understand what she could have done to prevent her son’s violence. In this difficult, jarring talk, Klebold explores the intersection between mental health and violence, advocating for parents and professionals to continue to examine the link between suicidal and homicidal thinking.
