You could have knocked me over with a feather when I read the headline. Well more like a sledgehammer. I knew my guess about Alvaro Rafael Castillo being a mutant would be correct…
A teenager accused of killing his father and then shooting two students at his former high school said Thursday that he had been obsessed for years with the mass killing at Columbine High School.
Alvaro Rafael Castillo mentioned that massacre as he arrived for an initial appearance in Orange County District Court. When asked why he fixated on the 1999 attack, Castillo said he didn’t know.
The 19-year-old was assigned a lawyer at his first court appearance and ordered held without bond. He didn’t speak during the brief hearing and only nodded when asked by Judge Charles Anderson if he understood the proceedings.
That last paragraph kind of surprised me. I thought Castillo would be crazy enough to go off on some rant while in court.
I found this mildly interesting…
The owner of the property on which the Castillo home is located refused to allow reporters access to the private road on Wednesday evening. The home is located amid a mix of horse farms, trailer parks and modest homes.
I wonder which one he lived in.
