Amish school serial killer was a molester

Charles Carl Roberts IV was dreaming of molesting children — he admitted in his suicide note that he had molested three- and four-year-old relatives 20 years ago. (CNN):

Roberts’ assault Monday killed five girls and wounded five others, police said, before he killed himself. Police have been trying to determine the motive behind the attack.

“It’s pretty clear to us, based on the actions that he took, that he intended to go into this school,” said Pennsylvania State Police Commissioner Jeffrey Miller. “Now we believe it had nothing to do with the Amish but it had to do with his victim (age) range, which was young female students ages 6 to 13. And we believe that he did not intend to come out alive.”

…Miller said Robert stated, “‘I molested some minor family members, family members that were 3 or 4 years old, 20 years ago.'”

“Roberts mentioned in his suicide note that he was having dreams of molesting again,” Miller said.

Note that he was a happily married man, according to his wife Marie. Does that say anything about all heterosexuals? No. Just making the point for the fundies at The Arlington Group, who seem to think it’s all about the homos.

“The man that did this today was not the Charlie I’ve been married to for almost 10 years. My husband was loving, supportive, thoughtful. All the things you’d always want and more. He was an exceptional father,” the statement said.
