On April 20, 1999, two senior students at Columbine High School, Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris, walked into their school and murdered 12 students and one teacher before committing suicide. The massacre is known as “the deadliest high school shooting in US history.” The families of the murderers were sued by the victims’ families. Two years after the massacre, the families of victims received a $2,538,000 settlement in their case against the families of Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris, and the two men who supplied the teens with weapons. The Klebold and Harris families contributed $1,568,000 through their homeowners policies.
Seventeen years later, Dylan Klebold’s mother, Sue Klebold, is speaking out. She has written a book, A Mother’s Reckoning: Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy, and is giving an exclusive interview to Diane Sawyer which will air on ABC 20/20 on February 12 (10pm).
