Good point - but since he had only been a student at this particular University for one year that would seem to indicate that he was studying at two different schools between the Masters program and the Doctoral program from which he withdrew in June.
Do multi-track programs allow for simultaneous study at different institutions? It's been a long while since I was in college..LOL

With the Biomarkers and Biochips the technology just isn't there yet. Not to mention finding biomarkers for schizophrenia or and related disorder has proven to be sketchy at best and at worst down right false. The stuff he was working on in neuroscience is a touchy very hard field to pursue with results.

I love conspiracies, too, and put nothing past the evil forces at work. However, my gut is that the whole episode is far more mundane. The guy is clearly a very bright individual. He has put in a great deal of very hard work to get where he is/was. At 24yo he is right inthe prime window for beginning to exhibit schizophrenia. His actions, lead-up behavior, gender and, again, age all fit. From everything I've read he has never exhibited any significant anti-social behavior in his past. Most socio-paths exhibit a clear acceleration of anti-social behavior starting at a fairly young age. I'm placing my bet on mental health as the underlying cause here.

Alas, my two pleas via IM to restore the title to something which more closely reflects my original intent have failed to sway Mod "Neformore" and as a result his/her watered-down modified title has effectively killed this thread. Gee, thanks!
I shall continue this line of inquiry on a more enlightened and less controlled forum.

A smart person can't be a killer?
I think you have this totally backwards because most killers are above average intellegence.
