(KPRC) A Texas man accused of killing six members of a Houston area family was voted homecoming king and class clown during his senior year at Chugiak High School in Eagle River, Alaska.

Drew Nevitt attended the same Mormon church as Ronald Haskell and described the suspect as a role model to him and other younger youth.

"He was always a really funny guy, he was definitely a clown. He was a likable character. He was a good guy. He was a good example for me and my friends," said Nevitt. "He was serving the congregation, putting on a white shirt and tie every Sunday and passing the communion out being a good example of representing his faith and God and doing good things."
