The mother of a 12-year-old girl, April Lyda, whose son was tragically stabbed to death in Oklahoma, has come forward to discuss her daughter’s actions. According to April, her daughter’s ADHD medication played a role in triggering a violent episode that led to the incident, Your Content has learned.

In an interview on Chris Cuomo’s NewsNation show, April Lyda explained that her daughter had been taking ADHD medication for a continuous period of five years. However, last year, while being homeschooled, she took a break from the medication. During this time, there were no notable behavioral issues. But when her daughter returned to school, doctors recommended resuming the medication to aid concentration among her peers.

Within a few weeks of restarting the medication, her daughter began self-harming, causing April to take her off it once again. Unfortunately, the damage had already been done. April shared that her daughter had expressed anger and irritability without reason, which was uncharacteristic of her, during the years she was on the medication.

April also mentioned that her daughter had confided in friends about having thoughts of harming her brother a couple of weeks before the tragic incident. However, no one reported it, and the only change in her behavior leading up to the attack was that she spent more time alone in her room.

April Lyda remains devastated by the loss of her son and struggles to comprehend what drove her daughter to commit such an act. The child is currently receiving counseling in a juvenile detention center in Tulsa,‘according to New York Post.
