Trial set to rule on sanity of Harrison Brown’s killer

Kendrex J. White will face a judge in Austin on Tuesday, Dec. 11 for the May 1, 2017 murder of Harrison Brown on the University of Texas at Austin campus.

On May 1, 2017 Harrison Brown, a 2016 graduate of Graham High School, died of injuries sustained during a stabbing spree on the University of Texas campus that also injured three other male students. Brown was murdered by White, 21, who is still facing trial for the murder and is attempting to plead not guilty by reason of insanity.

The news that Brown, 19, was killed reached Graham by early evening on May 1. By 6 p.m., Graham ISD confirmed Brown’s death on its Facebook page. Reaction to Brown’s death rocked not only his large, extended family, but Graham ISD

Counselors and youth ministers were at the high school on the following day to talk with students. School officials and community leaders were on hand to simply let students feel their grief in the GHS band hall first thing on the morning of Tuesday, May 2.
