ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - The man accused of killing six members of his ex-wife’s family, including four children, in Spring, Texas this week is a graduate of a suburban Anchorage high school, where he was voted class clown and homecoming king.

The Anchorage Daily News reports (http://is.gd/Qhz5PV ) Ronald Lee Haskell Jr. lived in Alaska until 2004. He attended Chugiak High School and was part of a tight-knit Mormon community in Eagle River, about 10 miles north of Anchorage.

Drew Nevitt attended the same Mormon church as Haskell and says Haskell was an older peer he looked up to. Nevitt says Haskell was just “a funny, red-headed, freckled guy with a good personality.”

Nevitt described him as “the Chris Farley of Eagle River.”

Nevitt and other former classmates are struggling to understand how things changed so dramatically.
