  1. The note he left: “Initially you said, ‘well, we can work it out’ but NO, you refused… You called me a liar, a cheat, a criminal, a bum. You said I have ruined your life… You were never around much when I needed you, so now I and my whole family are dead—so you can have the money… ‘Night, Mother.”

    What kind of psychopath do you have to be to forge your mom’s name, embezzle money using the account you created illegally in her name, and then blame her for you being a murdering shithead? His kids were 13 and 9.

    In his notes he also [acknowledged that she didn’t commit fraud and that he was the only responsible party](https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-1989-04-17-mn-2098-story.html)…and yet he still blamed her for him murdering his family. Crazy train.
