    Brooke,
    I was shocked by the attitude displayed.The person who committed those horrific and despicable murder decades ago is no longer alive ! He was a teen,found not guilty,he went on a rebuilt his life and that should end there.Hi story is "an American " story,we believe in second chances in this country.A good predictor of future behavior has always been relevant present and past behavior.Well this person did exactly what society asks from its citizens: lead a productive life.Shame on the mayor of his town for asking for his resignation.As a student,I would love for a person with his "past" to teach me psychology.And further more i applaud his bravery in turning his life around.

    In the report it indicates that this is a two year investigation by the Georgetown Advocate. They have only been in existence for a year or so. They accomplished NOTHING with this report other than to ruin a man's life. Why did they feel that they had the right to do this?

    What on earth made her start looking? Was it something he said or did that triggered the investigation?

    Reporting this man's past is a despicable act. The original reporter and CNN have demonstrated their complete disregard for human decency.

    So let me get this straight. A 15-year old with mental health issues (paranoid schizophrenia and delusions) kills his family in 1967 and is found NOT GUILTY by reason of insanity, is committed to a mental health institution for a decade for treatment, then released, rehabilitates himself by getting an education and establishes a respectable, stable professional career with no other issues until 2013 (46 years after the fact).

    And some "investigative" reporter get's patted on the back because she "outs" the guy for no particular public interest reason other than to paint a scarlet letter on him again after all these years. And she asks the question: "Why did you change your name ?" Good grief. Thank you for NOT serving the public interest and shame on you for upending a "decent" rehabilitated life.

    Shame on you Brooke Baldwin and this investigator and the Mayor. A purely negative story that should have been a positive story.

    The woman who "exposed" this professor is a callous person who obviously knows nothing about schizophrenia. This man has received the treatment he needed and completely changed his life for the better. Why make him re-live the horror that happened and try to ruin his new life that the has worked so hard to obtain? Do you know how difficult it is for schizophrenics to have a normal life let alone get a doctorate degree? Use journalism to educate, not alienate.

    we being humans are judgmental....our right? our favorite pasttime? all I can say is if I had killed my parents and sister as a teen and was put into a mental institution for "x" number of years and released, I would hope I would have succeeded, as this man did, of becoming a productive member of society. his dealings are with a Greater Being so who are we to stand in judgement? and yet......

    This man took three lives. Oh but let's not ruin his good rehabilitated life. Please, he should have gotten life in prison or the death penalty. Insane or not, HE KILLED PEOPLE!!!

    In 1967 a 15 year old boy killed his family and he is now a respected college professor. Is this fair? That's a tough question. I'm glad to see he has changed, but i don't think he should be teaching psychology to kids.
