A man who has been charged with three counts of aggravated assault after a mass stabbing at Lone Star College's Cy-Fair campus has a long history at the school.
Dylan Quick, 21, was featured in the college's student spotlight on April 1. The profile had been posted on a blog site, but was removed Tuesday evening.
According to the story, Quick was born completely deaf and received a cochlear implant when he was 7 years old.
"The first few years after receiving the implant, Dylan says he was busy learning English, just as if he were an ESOL student," the article read.
Quick was homeschooled and his mother involved him in the college's library teen activities when he was 12 years old, according to the story. The program helped him increase his hearing and communication skills.
Quick participated in a book club and listed his favorite book as "The Phantom of the Opera: The Original Novel" by Gaston Leroux, the article read.
According to the article, Quick said "book clubs were a great foundation for college, a starting point from which to evolve."
Quick planned to one day build and host an online international book club to connect people of all ages from around the world, according to the article.
"He was a good student," said Audre Levy, president of Lone Star College's Cy-Fair campus. "He also worked in our public library. The library staff had fine things to say about him. There were no signs ... there was anything amiss."
The story stated that Quick planned to pursue a career in accounting and wanted to transfer to the University of Houston after getting an associate's degree from Lone Star College.
According to a statement Quick voluntarily gave investigators on Tuesday, he has had "fantasies of stabbing people to death" since he was in elementary school. The Harris County Sheriff's Office said Quick also indicated that he has been planning this incident for some time.
Neighbors described Quick as shy. They said he would say hello when he took out the trash and helped his parents tend the yard, though he rarely came out alone.
Quick was reported missing in 2011 and was not seen for about three days. He was found camping out on Lone Star College's Cy-Fair campus.
