MARILYN MANSON Fan Who Shot Himself After Firing At Teacher Dies

May 25, 2009

According to the Associated Press, a coroner's investigator says the 15-year-old student at Larose-Cut Off Middle School in Louisiana who shot himself in the head on school grounds last week, moments after firing at a teacher who refused his order to praise Marilyn Manson, has died.

Mark Goldman, the chief investigator for the Lafourche Parish Coroner's office, says Justin Doucet died Saturday morning at Terrebonne General Medical Center in Houma.

Doucet left a suicide note in which he explained that he planned to kill others before taking his own life with a gun belonging to his father. Doucet walked into a seventh-grade English class shortly before 9:00 a.m., telling the teacher to say "Hail Marilyn Manson" before attempting to shoot her.

The items found by the authorities include the lyrics to the SLAYER song "Raining Blood" and a picture Doucet drew of himself. Dressed with camouflage pants and shoes and an AC/DC "Highway to Hell" shirt in the drawing, he gave himself a title: "The LCO Gunman."

"The writings suggest a very troubled person who is dealing with some anger issues who has a fascination with the antichrist, the end of the world, Nazism, Marliyn Manson, those sorts of things," said Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre. "And this desire to carry out a Columbine-like event."
