Paula DeStefano wrote: ‘I have to wonder if the College had done a better job of protecting Jacob after he reported the sexual harassment of another student maybe events would not have transpired in the manner they did.'
Holly Osborne added: ‘This is what bullying does. A bright young person lost his life and his family lost their son. Senseless.’

father, Dr Jon Marberger, believes his son’s problems began in early October when he encountered problems with the two groups he was associated with at the college – the Phi Delta Theta fraternity and the Student Government Association (SGA).

he overheard two other members texting sexual comments about a woman in the group, NBC Philadelphia reported.
He reported the incident to school officials as sexual harassment. Both people involved lost their jobs, which angered Marberger’s fraternity brothers as one had been on the same sports team as some of them.
Marberger felt ‘persecuted’ by them, one student told the news station.
He had also been the victim of a prank when someone had placed a trash can full of water in front of the door to Marberger's dorm room.
On October 29, he was suspended from school after he reportedly drunkenly brandished an unloaded antique gun at a party at his fraternity.
Dr Marberger explained his son had been drinking wine on October 7 when his fraternity repeatedly carried him to his room and even tried to place a bureau in front of his door.
He was just embarrassed for what he had done and how it was misinterpreted

‘After the 4th or 5th time, that’s when he came out with the gun,’ he told NBC. ‘I don’t know what he said but he held it over his head.’
Marberger was also expelled from Phi Delta Theta and had only returned to school recently after a forensic psychologist determined he was not a threat.
Investigators concluded that he had not committed any ‘overt acts of violence’ when he displayed the gun.

anger continued in comments on Yik Yak, an app where people can post anonymously, between 9pm and 11pm on the night before Marberger went missing.

It was at this point that Marberger drove home and recovered the rifle from his parents’ home and stopped responding to calls and messages.

He was last seen at 7am on November 16 on surveillance cameras which captured him buying five rounds of ammunition at a Walmart in Hamburg.

[gun nut blames government for being turning kid into a public safety threat????]

ollege student victimized by Maryland’s deep anti-gun gun paranoia, social justice madness and bullying has been found dead.
Jacob Marberger, the Washington College student missing and presumed armed since Monday, was found dead Saturday.
The 19 year old male who was being sought by Chestertown Police Deparment in Maryland was found in a picnic area in the Hawk Mountain Sanctuary near Hamburg, Pennsylvania,  along with the green Land Rover that he was believed to be operating.
The victim died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to police.
The school on Maryland’s Eastern Shore first canceled classes Monday, after Marberger’s parents called the college to say he had returned home to Pennsylvania outside of Philadelphia and may have taken a firearm.
His disappearance followed difficulties he had been experiencing at the college, police said. He had recently been kicked out of Phi Delta Theta fraternity and resigned his position as speaker of the senate in the college’s student government.
He was also scheduled to have a hearing based on the school’s honor code, according to Chestertown Police Chief Adrian Baker.
Baker added that Marberger had not made any known threats to the college or students, but that the school closed proactively.
Predictably, the news outlet won’t tell the full story, of how Marburger, a thriving college student, had his life destroyed over the past six weeks for standing up against loutish behavior, and the “crime” of showing off an antique firearm in his fraternity house in a manner that no one misinterpreted as a threat.
Paranoid administrators at Washington College shut the school down for two weekswhile Marburger was missing, even though he wasn’t though to be a threat, or even in the state. It was this rabid anti-gun paranoia that Marburger apparently thought would lead to his expulsion and the destruction of his life.
Marburger’s fraternity and the student government association at Washington College made his life hellish, but what seems to have driven him over the edge was that he was being brought up on a hearing for violating the school’s honor code for holding the antique pistol in his fraternity. Instead of facing more humiliation and the possibility of expulsion, he chose suicide.
