Has Christmas really become the time for gun-crazed tragedies?
It just makes us so sad. And angry!
The story of the house fire believed to have been a firefighter-luring trap for the murder-lust of William Spengler now has a bizarre new element to it — a disgusting note.
Webster Police Chief Gerald Pickering couldn't read the entire letter, which was left by the sniper who took his own life after shooting four firefighters, but he sure read enough of it for us!
"I still have to get ready to see how much of the neighborhood I can burn down and do what I like doing best — killing people."
Spengler, 62, had already been convicted of first-degree manslaughter for killing his grandmother back in 1981. He was released on supervised parole…
And while the letter explained his grisly intention, the motive still remains a mystery. The main theories revolve around a donation his mother made to the fire department and a connection to his arrest dealing with the case of his grandmother.
Along with the two fallen firefighters (with two others hospitalized), his 67-year-old sister was also victim to the event. Having been found charred in the fire, the medical examiner will challenge himself to discover whether or not she died from the fire or another wound first. According to their neighbor, the two never seemed to get along well living under the same roof.
Wow… WHY are all of these tragic events happening so close to each other!?! We know we survived the Mayan apocalypse but sh*t! Sometimes it seems like the world is ending anyways!
