Monroe mourns death of teen convicted of school-attack plot
Friends and family are mourning today after a 17-year-old Monroe boy committed suicide after years of alleged bullying.
Two years ago, Michael Vanderclock admitted to planning a Columbine-style attack at Monroe-Woodbury High School. He was later sentenced to 18 months in a psychiatric center.
Vanderclock had just started a program at Riverview High School in Nyack last month. Officials say he fit right in and was really appreciated by both students and staff.
School officials say counselors are on hand to help students deal with Vanderclock's death.
Visitation is set for Saturday at Seaman and Quackenbush funeral home in Monroe. The funeral will be kept private.
