Connor Sturgeon, killed by Louisville police on Monday after he shot up the bank where he worked (and reportedly was about to be fired), had multiple concussions from playing sports, according to his family, and they’re having his brain tested for CTE.
Also of some note: Sturgeon had bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Alabama. Murder U indeed.
I certainly don’t know enough to connect the dots, neither a neuroscientist or a visitor to Holiday Inn Express, but am enough of a cynic to wonder why so much energy is expended on connecting certain dots and not so much on others. I can certainly understand why the shooter’s family would want to think that some extraordinary factors influenced this heinous act. And while it may be a factor or the factor, as I am certainly not discounting this theory, but unless I heard the back story incorrectly, this was a multi factor situation, so I am not circling my wagons around any single factor.
