I think the mother was in the process of having the little POS commited and the process was in motion.
I also think the state has the paper work some where and is sitting on it.It may be some of the info NOT released today.
I also think the kid was aware of this and decided to take out the mom and make the history books.
He wasnt going to be commmited.
She was trying to get help. The info surfaced right after the shooting and then just vanished into thin air.
