Nineteen twenty seven and the excited kids of bath. Township michigan were attending their last day of school before summer break. Now i want to warn you. This is gonna be rough.

Andrew ki-ho heading toward the school he saw andrew andrew saw him and he said andrew grinned and waved his hand and when he grinned i could see both rows of his teeth. Andrew ki-ho was a fifty five year old school board treasurer and he was angry about the increase taxes that had recently been put in place in bath for the addition of the new school. He had also been defeated in the election for township clerk so he wanted lower taxes and he fought against the new school and he repeatedly accused superintendent of schools ameri of fiscal mismanagement. He had studied electrical engineering and michigan state university and he had a farm he also had a reputation in town is super frugal and he was very hot tempered. His neighbors described him as a tinkerer and knowledgeable handyman but indicated that he was really pretty indifferent as a farmer so he had this farm but he really didn't put his heart into it. His wife was ill with tuberculosis. and he's recently stopped making the mortgage payment so his farm was facing foreclosure about thirty minutes after the explosion at the school. Andrew ki-ho drove up to the site. He saw superintendent and summoned him over to his truck. Keough then stepped out of his truck. They had some words. He aimed his rifle at the truck and fired. His truck was filled with dynamite and trap dome. And the explosion killed the school superintendent. It killed himself. It killed a retired farmer nearby. And cleo clayton an eight year old second grader. This is after the school exploded. Clayton had survived the first blast and wandered out of the school building jesus.

It was rural and he had arranged it so that the farm and the school blew up at the same time. Oh wow yeah holy shit. The barn had been completely destroyed. Had horses inside. Ki-ho had hobbled those horses so they had no chance of escape. He also plays firebombs throughout the house. so that head exploded as well. It was determined that ki-ho had spent months planning this event. He was driving to land saying explicitly coming back to town and bit by bit loading the floorboards of the school with dine so four months in this is because of his tax unhappiness with the level of taxation.

She wasn't able to pull herself together until emergency responders arrived. Parts of the building flew everywhere. We're and that. How many bystanders were injured and killed?

I'm Richard Their responders came and so with kids jumping out of the Building like the first floor window of a lot of people just got injured just by yet by jumping alone and just the things that were just flying down at them. These lotion was heard for miles away. And when people heard the explosion go off in the direction of the school they left Andrews Farm to assist at the school instead one bystander recalls five to six kids chat under under the roof you can only see their body parts hanging from under the rubble so like they're armed Their leg ahead here and there. The faces were unrecognizable. Okay do to dust plaster in blood covering the bits of their body visible cars parked on the street were on fire do so the explosion is will mothers cried in drop to their knees and prayed as the chaos took place. The school lawn became a temporary more. The children's bodies relate on the lawn and covered with a sheet as they are brought from the school. Aw appearance walked by removing sheet trying to identify their child which I can only imagine being those parents worth nightmare. It was the last day of school for these kids. Parents didn't didn't expect their children to be harmed while at school. You wouldn't think that you would think that that's the one place a child should feel safe in for so many children's school is the only safe place for them because of how many victims there are ambulances from as far as lansing came to help. But as if this wasn't enough lear he arrives is at the school in his pickup truck. The backfill of dynamite and Metal Shards Somehow Andrew. In the superintendent gets into an argument. They began to fight over Rifle and so finally Andrew fires at the truck causing a second explosion. You guys so. Was it. His plans to kill himself is it was said that he intentionally put that in there and like he wanted to go. I think that was his way of like killing himself because he wanted. He wanted to see what happened at the school. And then it was just like all right what I had to do. Naam done so you guys. This explosion are only killed. Andrew Anna Superintendent but also to Adele bystanders. This third explosion also killed an eight-year-old boy.

It took the community until six that evening to get all of the bodies out in. Everyone moved with extreme caution fearing that there will be more explosives ready to go off at any moment now. Prior to this attack many people noticed some strange behavior from Andrew a mini thought. Nothing of it. That's why if there'd be a weird you gotta say you uh-huh anybody now so his neighbors from his neighbor from across the street whose name was David. Hart believed that Andrew had been working on its plan for for months now. He was the one who claims to see Andrew working hard on his wife on wiring his fences for about ten days. He also noted that Andrew has stopped farming for months and I don't know how he was all up in business but he also knew that he was falling behind him bills. How he even know that? I don't know whether notices he might have seen like like or you hate to haven't been working like in month. I know he's not paying bills. I don't know but another person person who said Andrew Displays. Some weird behavior was a first grade teacher by the name of Bernice Sterling. She acts prior to the explosion to use Andrews Woods. Four picnic for her class. Andrew responded that if she was going to have a picnic she better do it right away which should have raised red flags in her head instantly. 'cause that's not a normal response you get when you ask them when something like that. When the smoke cleared on the farm authorities searched the ruins and found the body of his wife charged to a Chris? Her body was so unrecognizable that police Passover her so many times before actually discovering her around the body items like the save some paperwork you work in jewelry authorities assumed that he must have killed his wife so that she wouldn't ruin his plans for some reason I kind of feel like he was putting it into everything I mean. A man tied up the legs of his horses. Prior to the explosion that's pretty final. When authorities looked over all the equipment on the farm if android of sold all of that he would have had enough to save his farm? Yeah he was building everything to make it easier so he can just felt. Yeah and if he didn't tinker so much like what you're supposed to do do so at the school. Authorities found a gasoline container fit it in a gap between the dynamite so expansion of gas before through the vapor in. We'll all through the tube to spark the get the fire. The Fire Department suspected that this was his backup plan. In case the dynamite didn't work Andrews body was claimed by his sister and he was buried in Clinton County cemetery in an unmarked grave. The school board went under serious investigation for about a week before it was concluded that Andrew Acted aloneness. School massacres didn't occur like this back in his time. In many people tried to find a reason to why Andrew would even do something like this. They want it so bad to blame things on his mental health. They call them names such as insane the minted in a madman and that the head injury I mentioned earlier was the blame which he actually got that injury while he was At school to be an electrician. Ironic right yeah. So but it was concluded that he was rational enough to commit the crime. I mean the fact that he spent months planning this and setting anything's up is proof enough that he that this man knew what he was doing. Most of the children killed disaster reburied in Pleasantville cemetery in bath the time at the disaster her about fifty thousand people travelled through the town just to get a glimpse as something they thought probably would never happen. The attention quickly ended do Ended them do the Charles Lindbergh's nonstop flight that took place not too long after this. Some say that this happened for the best though because the town as a whole needed to grieve for the most part just about each household had a child that it's ended bath school because it was the first schoolhouse for Kids K.. Through twelve like I said about three hundred students attended at the school from areas around bath as well. The school was demolished but a new one was opened up after the governor gave Nice donation of seventy five thousand dollars. The school is the school was called James Cousins Agriculture school but it was torn down in nineteen seventy five in the commemorative park was created in. Its place where the focus of the park is a piece. He said their original school. That was still remaining. One of the oldest survivors of the disaster by the name of Irene said that she stayed home that day from school because because she had a sore throat. When the explosion at the school happened she could hear from her farm? Her and her mother jumped in the car and headed straight to the school. She had eight younger siblings nibbling who also attended school there in just because she stayed home with a sore throat didn't meet her siblings. Stayed home with her. One of her brothers fingers was cut off and the explosion and Dan her sisters were. Some of the kids had jumped out of the first floor window to escape the explosion. Irene was all around lookie today yeah like that. Did they like there were no escape. Yeah and then the fact like that day. She didn't go to school in depending on where the grades. It's weird because like how it was going like a lot of classes from I read a lot of classes were moved around because they were doing like a test on that day. So you had like normally.
