According to the STL Post. the family had recieved threats over something to do with the Joyce Meyer Ministries. I don't know if the family told anyone about the threats or if they were taking seriously but if they did then this whole thing should have/could have been avoided.

One of the boys was my 11 year old nephews best friend. they were raised together playing baseball and football. My brother and sister in law were close to their parents. As of this morning the school said they would not tell the students of it. and would have conselors on hand tomorrow. My nephew is going to be so upset. and what is sad they were so young and innocent. my thoughts are with Mr. Coleman and his family. The father was at work when this happened. You people should not even speak about this if you dont know them. And dont be so quick to point fingers when you dont know then family.
