Why Would the Killer Want to Kill His Mother?

Published by at 2:08 pm under Counseling & Psychotherapy

We now are learning the killer went to the school to kill his mother…he did so…and the children in her class and many others.

Another person was apprehended in the woods, also wearing camaflauge…others are missing.

Again, we can only guess….but there are many reasons why a young adult (he was 24yo) son would want to kill his parents.

Sons who are abused by their parents become enraged, but as young people, are too small to act their rage out in any way. Plus our brains have a protective feature of storing this type of emotional memory  in a way that enables us to “forget” it, even as we remember the visual images of our abuse.

Later in life, these emotional memories can flood back…and cause this sort of unbelievable violence.

We will find out more as the day unfolds and enough for us to understand more about what influenced this deranged killer.
