Columbine Shooter's Parents Speak Out

In the 13 years that have passed since the Columbine shootings, when 12 students and one teacher were killed, shooter Dylan Klebold's parents have remained largely silent about living a parent's worst nightmare . . . until now.

In a shocking confession, Sue Klebold claims that on the day of the massacre, April 20, 1999, when she discovered that her son Dylan was one of the shooters, she prayed he would kill himself. "I had a sudden vision of what he might be doing. And so while every other mother in Littleton was praying that her child was safe, I had to pray that mine would die before he hurt anyone else."
