The question posited by the headline is ridiculous. It presumes that psychopathology can only manifest after 18? The human animal is one of the most dangerous, complicated, and unpredictable predators to ever walk the Earth. A primary survival mechanism is to identify those with faulty wiring and avoid them as they are a threat to ones survival. Age is immaterial.
At my advanced age, I have learned to pay close attention to the hairs on the back of my neck. They have never failed me in identifying someone who was ‘off’. Some, like Bill Ayers argue that children cannot be classified as predators. Ironically, Bill Ayers raises my hackles to a greater degree than does the 'patient zero' of this sad story.

That’s a legal question ~ I gather professionals in this field have to pay attention to age just to avoid malpractice suits by crazy parents who thought their kids could be cured instantly.
