Investigators Say 14-Year-Old Noel Estevez, Who Stabbed Fellow Student Timothy Crump, Never Reported Being Bullied to School
Fourteen-year-old Noel Estevez is accused of fatally stabbing Timothy Crump, also 14, outside of their middle school in the Morris Heights section of the Bronx. Estevez was initially charged with murder and was to be tried as an adult, but on July 1, a grand jury voted to indict the teen for a lesser charge, second-degree manslaughter, and move the case to family court.

The caption on Faceook reads: "it is sad that once friends, Timothy and Noel had turned foes due to circumstances and eventually things have turned out into the worst possible situation for everyone involved... Collective failure of the school and parents to be blamed for not addressing the problem in its early stages."
