Prosecutors: College stabbing suspect had long-held killing fantasy
HOUSTON - by KHOU 11 News and www.khou.com
Attorneys in probable cause court overnight said they have a videotaped confession from the suspect accused of stabbing several classmates at a Lone Star College campus.
In the confession, 20-year-old Dylan Quick reportedly told detectives Tuesday’s attack was part of a long-held “fantasy” he had since his childhood.
“In a videotaped confession, he admitted he stabbed the complainants with an X-Acto knife and a scapula [sic] because of his fantasy to kill people,” said a prosecutor. “Apparently there are more than six complainants, and a bloody knife tip was removed from the chest from one of the complainants.”
The charges against Quick were read in court, but he wasn’t there out of concerns over his mental health. Quick has been charged with three counts of aggravated assault.
The student is accused of going on a stabbing spree at Lone Star College’s Cy-Fair campus, injuring at least 14 people. Two critically injured victims are now listed in good condition.
The sheriff's said Quick told investigators he'd had fantasies about stabbing people to death since he was in elementary school, and Quick indicated he'd been planning the attack for some time.
Authorities on Tuesday were seen leaving Quick's parents' home with two brown paper bags.
Two of the people critically injured in a stabbing at Lone Star College Cy-Fair are now in good condition, the hospital said early Wednesday.
Six victims were taken to Memorial Hermann Texas Trauma Institute Tuesday afternoon after a student allegedly went through part of the campus and stabbed several people, injuring more than a dozen.
A Memorial Hermann spokesman said all of the patients previously listed in critical condition are now in good condition. One patient was discharged after treatment.
North Cypress Medical Center confirmed they received six patients Tuesday, but all were treated and released.
