Ex-Wife: Suspect in Killings of Muslim Students Obsessed With Shooting Movie
Well this is an ex-wife, so take it with a grain of salt.
The ex-wife of the man suspected of murdering three Muslim students Tuesday near the University of North Carolina described him as a person with “no compassion” who was obsessed with a movie about a shooting rampage.
Cynthia Hurley, who said she and Craig Stephen Hicks divorced 17 years ago, told the Associated Press that she had always been disturbed by Hicks’ fixation on the 1993 film “Falling Down.” The movie, which stars Michael Douglas, follows an engineer struggling with unemployment and divorce as he goes on a shooting rampage through Los Angeles.
“That always freaked me out,” Hurley told the AP. “He watched it incessantly. He thought it was hilarious. He had no compassion at all.”
