OP, so sorry to hear of this.
My only contribution is that the impact of actually killing one's teenaged child is nearly incomprehensible - how could a reasonably adjusted person
do this? I can't believe that any somewhat normal person, in any circumstances of "revenge against the ex" or ??? would do this.
I know people who have lost teenagers, one by a traffic accident for which they, the parent, were responsible, another by a drunk driver, and the
devastation is permanent and ongoing. I also know someone who committed suicide, whom I worked with. When I asked him if he was going to attend a
training the coming Monday, he just gave a weird little laugh and said he wasn't going to be there.
In this case, you posted a FB message that the father was offering to pick up someone's child on Saturday - that's just odd, if he'd planned to do
this. What extreme circumstance could cause someone to suddenly, without much planning (except to go buy ammunition for his glock, as the publicist
said the father told him he hadn't owned any ammunition for it), to suddenly decide to commit one of the most emotionally heinous crimes a human
being can commit. Seriously weird. Granted, I'm not presenting a major body of research here, only a few personal stories & thoughts, so I don't
hold my opinion as somehow conclusive - it's simply my reference points for my opinion.
In short - I agree with you that something seems "off" about this situation. I'm so very sorry for your community, and their remaining family - it
is such a deeply, horrifyingly painful event.
I appreciated the Reddit thread you posted with the publicist, so thank you for that.
Peace to you, and good luck in the Navy!
