EXCLUSIVE: New Jersey school's outrageous smear against Adriana Kuch

EXCLUSIVE: New Jersey school’s outrageous smear against girl, 14, who killed herself after being beaten by bullies: Superintendent says she was ‘on drugs’ and that father’s ‘affair’ caused mom’s suicide seven years ago

  • In emails to DailyMail.com, Trian Parlapanides smeared Adriana Kuch 
  • He claimed her grieving father had ‘an affair that caused her mother’s suicide’ 
  • Adriana’s grieving father Michael gave a heartbreaking tribute to her today 

The heartless superintendent of the New Jersey school where 14-year-old Adriana Kuch was beaten in the halls two days before killing herself has responded to questions about her death with smears against her grieving family. 

In astonishing emails to DailyMail.com Triantafillos Parlapanides, the Superintendent of Central Regional School District, said Adriana – who killed herself in her bedroom closet on February 3 two days after being beaten – had been offered counseling ‘for drugs’. 

He also made a shocking allegation against the girl’s grieving father Michael, a 22-year Army veteran, claiming he ‘had an affair’ when Adriana was seven that drove her mother to commit suicide, and later ‘moved the woman into the house’. 

That ‘woman’ is Adriana’s stepmother, Michael’s wife Sarah, who spoke with DailyMail.com through tears on Friday morning as they prepared Adriana for visitation ahead of her funeral tomorrow.

Adriana killed herself sometime after 10.46pm on February 2nd. The bullies who’d attacked her were threatening to go after her boyfriend next, and had bombarded her with harassing messages all day. 

Parlapanides’ emails – which comes a week after Adriana’s suicide – was in response to a series of questions from DailyMail.com about whether she’d received support from the school.  

She killed herself two days after being beaten in the hallway in an attack that was captured on video and less than 24 hours after being taunted by the girls in relentless messages.

This is the email response Parlapanides provided to DailyMail.com when asked what counseling Adriana had been given. He claimed her ‘choices declined’, that her mother committed suicide ‘since her father had an affair’ 

When asked what services had been provided to her, Parlapanides said: ‘After [Adriana’s] mother’s suicide since her father was having an affiar [sic] at the end of her 6th grade. 

‘Her father married the woman he had an affair with and moved her into the house.

‘Her grades and choices declined in 7th and 8th grade. 

‘We offered her drug rehab and mental services on 5 occasions but father refused every time.’ 

He then claimed: ‘We tried helping her several time but mother’s suicide was a major reason she started making poor choices.’  

Michael Kuch previously explained to DailyMail.com how Adriana’s mother had battled addiction and tragically died in 2015, when she was just seven. 

He denied Parlapanides’ claims that ‘drugs counseling’ was offered to his daughter, instead explaining that he and his wife sought help for her separately because she had been smoking marijuana with a vape – as many kids at the school did, and slammed the superintendent for his conduct. 

‘I don’t know how to respond to this insane deflection,’ Mr. Kuch said in response to the superintendent’s email. 

‘This guy is a piece of s**t,’ he said, while preparing for his daughter’s funeral.  

In addition to his email to DailyMail.com, Parlapanides defended himself on Facebook, claiming there are ‘two sides to every story’, after an alumni saw news of Adriana’s death and said she would never send her kids to the school.

Adriana’s father said she was ’embarrassed’ about the attack video circulating online and was being harassed by the bullies on social media and in texts

One of the girls involved in the attack posted these heartless messages on Snapchat. Adriana’s father said: ‘It used to be you’d go to school, get bullied and then you left. But now you come home and you keep getting bullied – they still keep picking at you home.’

Parlapanides is in charge of three schools; he has served as the superintendent for 14 years. Adriana’s father believes the school failed his daughter by not calling police on the bullies after the attack. 

Adriana killed herself after seeing their taunts on social media, and after one of the girls sent her a direct message laughing about it. 

‘I can’t begin to tell you how angry I am at the school, at the police department…If those videos hadn’t been posted, these girls would have ended up with a one day suspension or in no trouble at all. 

‘The [school] has done nothing. They should not be in charge of our children’s safety.’

 What drove her to kill herself, he says, is the fact that she was ’embarrassed’ about the fast-spreading videos of the attack on TikTok and Snapchat.

‘She was so embarrassed that they jumped her. She would say, “I don’t want to be made fun of.” 

‘It was like she was attacked twice. 

‘It used to be you’d go to school, get bullied and then you left.

‘But now you come home and you keep getting bullied – they still keep picking at you home.’ 

The school was last year sued by the family of another girl who say she was ‘jumped’ in the hallways.  

According to her father Kuch was ‘smashed in the face three times with a water bottle’ and ‘blacked out.’ He then had to take his blood covered daughter to the police station to file a report because the school refused to do so

The day after the beating, Adriana stayed home from school. 

She lived with her father, stepmother, 16-year-old brother and two stepsisters. 

Her mother tragically died when she was seven.  

‘Her father says the school staff told her to, because they didn’t want bullies to mock her swelling or bruising. 

‘We spent time together… she decided that she wanted to go back to school the next day. 

‘She went to her boyfriend’s house during the day. I got home at around 5 o’clock. 

‘We had McDonald’s and I got her her favorite – the crispy chicken sandwich. 

‘We had dinner, we talked about friends and making life choices… I kind of liked to lecture her.

‘We had a great conversation, [my wife and I] said that we wanted her to be hanging out with good people and tried to explain to her how that would help in life. 

‘She was in a good mood,’ he said. The family said goodnight and went to their separate bedrooms.

Cameras inside the home showed Adriana going from her bedroom in the converted basement into the kitchen for snacks at around 10pm.

Now, her father knows from her cellphone records that she had been online and texting with her boyfriend. 

He also knows that she received a direct message from one of the girls involved, taunting her about the video and the beating. 

He says it made fun of her for ‘dripping’ blood, and that she got her ‘a** whooped.’ 

The last text Adriana sent was to her boyfriend at 10.46pm. 

‘You can’t even give me the time of day,’ she said. S 

At 5am, her stepmother went down to her room to wake her up. Mr. Kuch recalls hearing her ‘screaming’. 

‘I was in the kitchen, the wife went downstairs [to wake Adriana] and I just heard her screaming “no”. 

‘I ran downstairs and see immediately that her bed s empty. At first I thought, “did she sneak out to her boyfriend’s?” 

‘That’s when I turned left, and I saw her there, in the closet. She had on the same clothes that she’d been wearing the day before. A brown jacket I had just bought her. She loved that jacket.’

The family is preparing for a private visitation today. Adriana’s funeral will be held tomorrow.   

The four girls have been charged now; three with fourth degree assault, and one with disorderly conduct. 

It is unclear if they will be prosecuted as adults or minors.
