- In Nikolas Cruz’ confession, was he lying about hearing a voice?
I can't be sure, given what little I know.
On one hand, psychotic symptoms are not exactly rare among spree killers and Cruz does not seem to be the most stable individual out there.
Having said that, he has a history of behavioral problems, violence, threatening people and lying. In short: He seems to be a textbook Antisocial Pd case. We should also be aware that "OMG I am hearing voices!" is probably the most common insanity plea attempt and voices are a well known psychotic symptom among the general public.
So given that and the fact that he is facing charges... I am tilted towards assuming he is just trying to plea insanity in order to avoid the consequences. But it is not a forgone conclusion.
