  1. The facts are incorrect. Todd was in his classroom with his students (less than 10, but not sure) and had his classroom aide with him. The student had brought a knife to school, came up behind him and stabbed him in the heart. Todd had recently married, and was one of the nicest people we had ever met, besides being a great guitarist.
