Understanding the Va Tech Murderer

Virginia Tech shooter reportedly on anti-depression meds, increasingly angry leading up to massacre

April 17, 2007

As all of you would have expected . . . it would not be long before we found
out what the shooter was taking. And it has just been released by the media
that he was taking antidepressants and having serious reactions to them that
we are used to seeing like starting a fire in his dorm, a long rambling
letter describing grievances - a particular dislike for the rich.

We already had
several clues of antidepressant-induced automatic behaviors such as REM Sleep
Disorder: the time of day being early morning for this incident and the calm
demeanor of the shooter. We also have the antidepressant-induced manic
behaviors: fire starting, violent and aberrant behavior & rambling letters of
complaints. We have antidepressant-induced Autisic behaviors of not socializing,
being a loner. Stalking. False allegations of abuse. Too many things were
beginning to add up especially for all of us who are aware of these reactions
that I document in my book.

Mark Taylor and his mother Donna have been here visiting with me for the
past couple of weeks. So, we did local media interviews yesterday on the VA Tech
shootings. The possible antidepressant connection was mentioned in every
interview. I have included them for you below. Feel free to share them with your
local media. And we are certainly available for more interviews.
