Texas Man Admits to Killing Family Police Say
This man follows the usual pattern for psychopathic killers: it starts with arson and animal murders.
Police said Sesler also admitted to an array of crimes, including killing animals, setting fires and randomly shooting at businesses and schools.
Six weapons and ammunition were recovered from various homes the 22-year-old frequented, ABC affiliate KTRK reported.
Court documents obtained by the station said messages believed to be left by Sesler in his parents’ home suggest he was remorseful.
“I love my mom, dad, and brother,” he reportedly wrote. “Why did I do this?”
“God forgive me because I cannot forgive myself,” he also wrote.
ABC News affiliate KTRK reported that authorities believe Sesler was plotting an attack on a nearby school, and he killed his family so they wouldn’t have to live with the shame.
Sesler maintained a YouTube channel and was known as Mr. Anime on the video site. Several videos show Sesler playing with fake guns.
A handful of response videos were posted on the site today, as Sessler’s online friends and viewers expressed shock at his arrest.
“I’m still in shock. I don’t know what to think. I thought he was a cool guy,” user NLMir wrote. “I feel betrayed.”
Sesler has been charged with capital murder and is in Waller County Jail on $3 million bond.
