15-year-old Kipland 'Kip' Kinkel was tagged as someone who was "Most Likely to start WW3" in his middle school yearbook. So it comes as no surprise that he turned out to be a psychotic killer after he was expelled from school for possessing a loaded, stolen handgun.

Kip's obsession with guns and violence led his father to think that buying him a gun would re-channel his unhealthy fixation into a passive hobby. He could not have been more wrong. On May 20, 1998, Kip used a .22-caliber semi-automatic rifle and killed his parents in cold blood. 

The next morning, he made his way back to school with two hunting knives, his rifle, a 9x19mm Glock 19 pistol, and a .22-caliber Ruger MK II pistol with 1,127 rounds of ammunition. He fired 51 rounds in the cafeteria, killing two, and injuring 23 others. Kinkel is currently serving a 111-year sentence without the possibility of parole.

A sensitive and smart teenager, Esmie Tseng was under a lot of pressure from her parents to constantly perform well. Her success-driven Chinese parents were too much for her to handle and she often felt suffocated with their expectations.

In various blog postings, Esmie revealed how she was grounded for scoring 'just' a 96% on an exam.

She was told she would be moved to another school district to punish her because once, she got three B's on her report card. One day, when things got too much for her, she grabbed a knife and stabbed her mother to death.
