The late Elliot Roger is suspected of shooting 13 people last Friday in Isla Vista, killing himself and six others. In April, his mother had raised concerns about his mental condition because of threatening rants he posted on line. Sheriff's deputies visited him at his apartment, but concluded that nothing was wrong. After the shootings, investigators found his apartment was full of evidence that Roger had planned bloody violence — and that he owned the weapons needed to carry it out.
