the absentee dad is a guilty accomplice, out living “married” to his affair partner leaving mom holding the bag of a mentally ill son.
From what I have read most recently, the mother dumped the father, not the other way around—if you have seen a story that the marriage busted up over an affair, I’d be interested in a link. The only things that I have seen indicating that the father had hooked up with some one else were very early when the media had the father living in NJ.
I do agree that the divorce was almost certainly a contributing factor, but I would hesitate to dump the entire responsibility for the divorce on the father.
Perhaps you are thinking of the maternal step-grandfather, who was a principal in the school district who seems to have dumped his first wife for a school nurse?

My advice to you is to ‘Judge not, lest you be judged’. You do not know the situation.
Was the shooter NOT a legal adult?
