Court documents show Tami Roberts misappropriated $18,000 that Jacob Roberts received in an inheritance from his grandmother when he was a young teen. She said that was not the reason for the estrangement.

Steal the kids inheritance, but that is not the reason he will not talk to you.
Nothing excuses his decision to murder. It would have been better if he had found Jesus.
His life sounds like a wreck.
No mention of Daddy.
Add that to the facebook posts of his Aunt being a stoner, I suppose that could be why he left her house at 14.
Still, why murder?
His Aunt was across the street from the Mall at the time of the shooting. I wonder if he knew that?
My brother stole/destroyed my inheritance, my reputation, and my health, and I never considered shooting up a mall.
If so that means this is the same dirty tricks the skid marks on Journalism's shorts ("reporters") used when describing the 1960s and 1970s "anti-war" demonstrators' "red, blue, and yellow protest banners." Those were Viet Cong flags.
Well, any way you cut it, he’s found Jesus now. Just not the recommended way to about finding Him.
Some young entrepreneur needs to build a Disneyland style theme park were all of these crazy loonies can go in with their weapons and take each other out instead of them murdering innocent, normal people in malls, theaters and schools.
Notice they keep using the term “hockey-style mask” NOT “hockey mask”.
Wonder if they will release a toxicology report.
Problem with that is that there are other people with guns in that fantastic amusement park...
Hmmmmm. This whole country is starting to look like old 60s and 70s movies. “1984”, etc. I guess “Escape From Chicago” instead of “Escape from New York” would work.
In reading a couple new articles tonight, it appears at least according to his friends, he told people he was getting a big inheritance that would support his move to Hawaii.
I wonder if he recently found out it was gone and no one in his “family” was going to pay it back to him?
Still no reason to murder others. It could have been the last straw for him to kill himself, but Why shoot others? I can never understand killing someone else when you want to take your own life.
just my thoughts
My dear fellow Christians, we are losing an entire generation. I am guilty of just hoping someone else will work the fields. Enough is enough though. Between our war veterans and our youth, we have a lot of folks in dire need of The Message.
So many details of that young man’s life reads like the story line of an novel based upon a dysfunctional modern day family, headed for rage and destruction.
Matching tattoos with aunt, no mention of father, several mentions of bars - this is not a “normal” family.
Same here with Hubby’s sis. We have been in probate court now for 2 years and have never thought about hurting anyone.....but we have discussed how it would have been much cheaper in the long run. lol
Look around, it seems to be the new normal.
