One day after he was stabbed in a bizarre campus attack, a University of Colorado freshman from Winnetka, Ill., spent Tuesday with family and friends who say the 17-year-old is doing well. Michael George Knorps was released from a hospital Monday night after surgery for a stab wound in the neck, inflicted by a former university employee with a history of mental illness. After meeting with Knorps' parents, university officials suspended eight campus workers who had been hired based on referrals from the same private mental-health agency that recommended the hiring of Kenton Astin, 39, the man accused in the attack. A University spokesman says university officials will conduct criminal background checks on the eight workers in addition to reviewing the school's background review process for the school's 7,200 employees.Click here to read The Chicago Tribune article.
