    End note: the suspected shooter has been found dead - apparently a suicide.

    What an idiot. Now those kids are going to be scarred for life. This wasn't their fault. To use this in the guise of a Christmas figure is appalling. He should have applied for some help to get through whatever marital problems he was having. But alas he chose the easy way out. Good Riddance.

    Divorce/domestic homicide situation, the way I read it.
    I'm your huckleberry...

    Quemadmoeum gladis nemeinum occidit, occidentus telum est!

    You can be the weapon, and the gun in your hand is a tool - or the gun is a weapon and you are the tool.


    I was looking for a saint who was a devil of a lover,
    but every girl I found was either one way or the other...

    What a piece... Unfortunately the guy gets an A+ for mission planning and prep, we're pretty lucky more criminals aren't as 'smart' as this turd. It is absurd that anyone could ever get so bent out of shape over a person to do this kind of thing... That 8 year old girl will now live life terrified of Santa Claus. I bet the fire he's in at the moment is hotter than the one he left those poor folks in.

    UPDATE!!!

    Santa shooter carried secret guilt, attorney says


    • Story Highlights
    • Bruce Pardo's son from previous relationship was brain damaged, attorney says
    • Secret of boy's existence was factor in divorce, newspaper reports
    • Police are looking for car Pardo might have rented
    • Authorities release information on those unaccounted for after fire


    From Stan Wilson
    CNN

    LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- The man who police say dressed as Santa Claus and killed nine people at a Christmas Eve party lived with guilt from an incident that left his son from a previous relationship a paraplegic, according to an attorney who once represented the woman in that relationship.

    Prime suspect Bruce Jeffrey Pardo, who police said committed suicide hours after he went on a shooting rampage and started a raging house fire in the Los Angeles suburb of Covina, had a son who sustained severe brain damage several years ago in an apparent swimming pool accident while he was in Pardo's care, according to attorney Jeffrey Alvirez.

    Police have said Pardo targeted his rampage at his former wife, Sylvia Ortega Pardo, and her family at the family's Christmas Eve party.

    The Los Angeles Times reported that Pardo had kept his son's existence and condition a secret from his wife. When she found out, her anger over the situation and also finding out that Pardo had claimed the child as a tax dependent for several years became a major factor in divorce proceedings, the paper said, quoting an unidentified source close to the investigation.

    Covina Police Chief Kim Raney said Friday that a divorce between the two was finalized in court December 18 in a "somewhat contentious proceeding."

    On Saturday, Covina police released the names of the nine people unaccounted for since the shooting and fire. Nine bodies were recovered from the rubble of the house, but authorities said they are having to work with dental records to establish identities.

    "The bodies were so badly burned they cannot be identified any other way," Covina police Lt. Pat Buchanan said.

    The nine unaccounted for are Sylvia Pardo, her parents, her sister, her two brothers, both brothers' wives and a nephew. Ages of the nine range from 17 to 80, police said.

    Meanwhile, Covina police said Saturday that they were looking for a car believed to have been rented by Pardo on December 19. Police cautioned that the missing car, a gray Toyota RAV4, might be booby-trapped or contain explosives.

    Another rented car that Pardo used to flee the scene was found booby-trapped after the shooting, police said. That car burned as the Covina bomb squad was trying to disconnect an explosive device in it, police said.

    In an interview Saturday with CNN, Alvirez -- who represented Pardo's former girlfriend Elena Lucano in a child support case against Pardo -- said that Pardo and Lucano were in an "off-and-on again relationship" in 2001 and that Pardo was watching their 13-month-old son, Matthew, one Saturday while Lucano went grocery shopping.

    When Lucano returned a short time later, she found Pardo frantically holding the unconscious toddler, Alvirez said.

    "The child did get away from him for a few minutes and managed to crawl out of a patio door and slip into the pool," Alvirez said.

    The couple rushed the child to a nearby hospital, where paramedics resuscitated him. Later, the gravely traumatized child was airlifted to Children's Hospital in Los Angeles, a world-renowned trauma center that specializes in severe pediatric care, for specialized treatment, Alvirez said.

    During the first week in the intensive care unit, Pardo never left his son's bedside, Alvirez said.

    But a few weeks after the child was stabilized, doctors concluded that severe brain damage would confine him to a wheelchair for life, Alvirez said.

    Less than six months later, Pardo and Lucano ended their relationship, and Pardo stopped visiting his son. Pardo also neglected to contribute to Matthew's medical costs, which surged up to $340,000 within the first year, Alvirez said.

    "We had to sue [Pardo] on his $100,000 homeowner's insurance policy, and I recommended that Elena sue Bruce beyond the policy," he said. "She was not a vindictive type, and she knew he was living with overwhelming guilt and wanted to only pursue his policy."

    Alvirez said he never had any problems with Pardo and was able to collect the $100,000 policy to pay off medical bills and set up a special needs trust of $240 per month for the rest of Matthew's life. The boy is now 9 years old, Alvirez said.

    "Once the settlement was reached in August 2002, Bruce stopped communicating completely and never saw Matthew or Elena again," Alvirez said.

    He said Lucano had maintained occasional contact with Pardo's mother over the years but she was unaware that Pardo had remarried and never anticipated the violent path that ended his life and left nine other people dead.

    "She is overwhelmed by all of this, but Elena has managed to provide for Matthew as a single parent with a part-time nurse and a full-time job," Alvirez said.

    Lucano declined to be interviewed by CNN, Alvirez said.

    The Brady camp has already put out a statement calling for more gun control :{
    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

    A fear of weapons is a sign of retarded sexual and emotional maturity. Sigmund Freud

    Sarah Brady has no shame. She takes advantage of any tragedy to promote her political agenda, but just once I'd like to see her acknowledge how many homeowners or potential robery or rape victims are probably alive today because they had a gun, many without firing a shot.
