As children returned to Catherine Everett Elementary School today, police continued their investigation into what prompted a woman to walk on to campus Tuesday with a large knife and, ultimately, be shot to death in a confrontation with officers. Police identified the woman as Elizabeth Catherine Kropp, 43, who lived nearby. A man who knew her described her as "not mentally there."
