A high school drop-out, authorities say Gibson lived a troubled life... often truant and abusive of drugs, they describe his a back talker, mean, and obstinate.
His mother often defended him to school officials.. which is why authorities are puzzled by the act of violence against her.
The high school has a Violence Prevention program in place... it's a ten week anger management program in which students may enroll themselves, or be enrolled by school officials.
They have no recollection of Gibson being enrolled in the program.
While a motive hasn't been determined, Gibson told authorities he quote, "just snapped."
The murder weapon was a bayonet Gibson allegedly found in the basement of his mother's home.
For Deacon Johnson, it's something he thought he'd never see in Waidsboro.
