Classmates yesterday described 16-year-old murder suspect John Odgren as a social outcast who seemed obsessed with violent crime and weapons and whose questions and comments managed to seen inappropriate even in a class about crime scene forensics at Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School.
Odgren, who called himself "Jack" at school, sometimes wore trench coats and a fedora and small, round black sunglasses indoors. He appeared to have few friends, but would boast that he had a collection of weapons and that he knew about internet sites were weapons could be purchased, said a classmate, 16-year-old junior Brianna Hodge.
Listen to an audio clip of Brianna Hodge describing John Odgren.
