Milford school murder suspect, Christopher Plaskon’s family released its first public statement to the media Tuesday morning. Milford Now obtained the statement from a family friend on behalf of the Plaskons’.

Christopher Plaskon, 16, is accused of stabbing to death Jonathan Law Junior Class President Maren Sanchez, 16, at the school Friday morning. He is currently undergoing a psychiatric evaluation at a New Haven Hospital. Christopher is expected to remain there for up to two weeks before he is arraigned on murder charges.

Here is the Plaskon family statement in its entirety and unedited:

“Words can only fall short in conveying the depth and breadth of the raw sadness we are left with by this unimaginable tragedy. Our hearts are forever broken as we, like you, struggle to understand.

To the Sanchez family, our deepest sympathies. Please know that you are now, and forever, in our hearts, our thoughts and our prayers. We join with the entire Milford community to celebrate the life and mourn the loss of this most vibrant and exceptional young woman.

To our extended family, friends and neighbors and all who have reached out to us in our darkest hour with warmth, kindness, understanding and compassion, you cannot know how much it has meant to us. Thank you.

In prayer we ask for comfort for the Sanchez family and all of us so deeply affected by this tragedy. We pray for the wisdom to guide us as we desperately try to pull together the shattered pieces of our families. And finally, we pray that time may soften our wounds and reveal forgiveness in the hearts of all.”

    This is so sad. No way should either of the families have to suffer this tragedy!

    It’s a start, I’m sure it’s very hard for the Plaskon family to come forward with words from the bottom of their hearts. It’s a life changer for both families. I knew a little of the Plaskon family and today I learned a lot more of the family and from what I gather they are an outstanding family with excellent ties to the community. I really feel sadness for them as a whole. I really hope they can get through this and still get support from the community without ramification. Bless you Plaskons…

    The Statement made by the Plaskon family to the Sanchez Family sounds honest and sincere. I really hope both families can work through this trying time. I know the Plaskon family and they are a wonderful family and I know they are a great contribution to the community.
