Lauren Pazienza, a 26-year-old event planner from New York City, is facing charges of manslaughter after a random attack on 87-year-old vocal coach Barbara Gustern resulted in her death on March 10, Your Content has learned.

As details of the case unfold, former classmates of Pazienza at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) have come forward, painting a disturbing picture of her past.

Describing Pazienza as “pure trouble” and “a danger,” her former college classmates have shared exclusive video footage showcasing her controversial behavior.

In the video, Pazienza can be seen contorting her face, screeching, and using a distorted voice, which they allege was intended to mock deaf individuals.

According to the FIT alumni, Pazienza had a tendency for violence during her time at the institute, leaving a lasting impression on those who crossed her path.

One former friend revealed that she displayed a complete lack of empathy and never expressed remorse for her actions.

The classmates further explained that Pazienza’s behavior was seemingly fueled by a sense of entitlement and privilege.

Coming from an affluent background as the daughter of a Long Island septic service business owner, she enjoyed a life free from consequences, often shielded by her parents.

However, instead of gratitude, Pazienza reportedly belittled her parents, referring to them as “stupid” and “basic.”

Police reports indicate that the fatal incident occurred when Pazienza approached Gustern randomly, hurling derogatory language at her as the elderly woman was about to enter a taxi.

The tragedy has left the community in shock, prompting reflections on Pazienza’s troubled history and its potential contribution to the fateful encounter.

Prior to her arrest, Pazienza had been residing in an Astoria condominium with her fiancé.

As the investigation unfolds, authorities will be delving into Pazienza’s background and her possible motives behind the attack on Gustern, shedding light on a troubled individual whose actions have caused irreparable harm, according to NewsFeeds.
