If he really believed the world was ending or that society was collapsing, then he would believe he was being merciful or doing those kids a favor by
killing them so they wouldn't have to suffer later. It is crazy because they did suffer multple gunshot wounds. They died in fear and pain. It was no
mercy killing but perhaps in his crazy mind it was.
My theory is (of course it's mostly guesswork so big change I'm wrong!).
He (her son), would probaly (pretty sure), being told, first by diagnosis (after of course she/her parents and troubles with him), that he was not
''ok''. And when friends knew or even his friends and the kids from his class knew, he had some mental desease.. but ok he handled that, for the most
part. But he got imprinted hardly inside of himself; he's not ok, he's wrong, not normal, mostly likely he thought very bad about himself.
Then (many many years later) his mother would lock herself up (&him), she most likely was depressed (& she was divorced) and telling negative things
everytime she could, telling him (perhaps), that he was a big cause of her unhappiness. And on top of that she believed the world would end soon + of
course some other things (he's alone, no gf, no dad (maybe he put blame on himself even for that they separated) ,perhaps also no good look on future
for himself (most likely).
Then something snapped.. He shot her mother in the face!
Those kids where on her school, maybe she often told how great those kids are (compared with him). That she wished? (of course big guesswork here!).
Or he remembered how happy was on that age still.
Maybe I'm puttting to much blaim on the mother here (&outside stuff), it's just a scenario.
Remember, often, when people who are bad with kids or even had sex/raped them or worse, often, had parents who where very hard on their kids (fysical
abuse), and or even sexual abused them as kids and they often later do the same thing when growing up.
Of course this is not always the case, but you read/hear it often.
