Maybe drugs is the trigger - I'm suspecting severe mental illness.

Schizophrenia maybe.

But yeah, a flakka like drug, maybe too.

So sad. Drugs and mental illness are a bad combo, which I suspect here.

No words - in another recent case in FL, a man killed his parents and adult brother bc they stopped him from sending a Bulgarian call (he never met) girl money (he sent her $200,000 of his parents' money, they had no idea til after and were justifiably upset) and he was convicted for killing them - like the previous case, it makes no sense, did he really think he could get away w/ it - ? - he lived w/ them and they trusted and loved him - another brother survived but only bc he didnt live w/ them - he was in total denial throughout and after the trial but was convicted.

Surely he was; prescription psychotropics?

I mean, they all are. The common denominator for every single one of these mentally ill young adults with this bizarre, iatrogenic psychosis; is the meds.

There will be another, preceding common denominator as well. Probably something along the lines of the immune-mediated process of young-adult onset schizophrenia.

That is one of the most bizarre videos I've ever seen. Watching him chasing after the cop naked, running up to the old guy and choking him, and just running around like a chicken with his head cut off - just completely baffling wth is going on inside his head. He seems much closer to a zombie from Walking Dead than a normal person.

This was likely a bath salts/flakka thing.

The husband/father of the victims is a baseball pitcher in the Rays farm system. Something this traumatic could easily end his pitching career as much of the game is mental.
Flakka is a synthetic drug from China. They've already gotten rid of it. It was too much for even the druggies to handle.

Didn't know about flakka - they call it the zombie drug, makes sense if that's what he was on.

I'm not a big fan of the death penalty, but in this guy's case I would gladly make an exception. Killing an adult is bad enough, but a helpless baby is just too much for any mercy IMO.
I cannot imagine what the husband is going through right now.
