Add your own, these are mine:


- nikolas cruz's 2019 IQ was average (although it was the worst possible score for being average "90").
- martin bryant had 3 girlfriends in his life and liked to have sex with them.
- seung hui cho once laughed with a classmate about the funny memories of their high school days.

Despite his anorexia, Adam Lanza had bookmarks about candy on his computer.
Charles Whitman was an Eagle Scout and played piano (on a similar note, Nathaniel Berhow was a Boy Scout.)

Guilherme taucci mentioned in a tweet that if he had a better financial condition he would like to help institutions that care about the welfare and care of animals and that it was a hobby that he would like to adopt. Apparently he quite liked animals

More about animal lovers, kinda:
"[Anton Niclas Lundin] Pettersson was often described as an animal lover, but it appeared to be driven by anxiety concerning the animal’s welfare. He did not, for example, go fishing with his family because he felt sorry for the fish. He also refused to feed the family iguana with locusts, and the iguana eventually died."

Wellington Menezes de Oliveira's suicide note said, among other things:
"I have left a house in Sepetiba of which none of my family members need, there are poor institutions, financed by generous people who take care of abandoned animals, I want this space where I spent my last months to be donated to one of these institutions, because animals are very unappreciated beings and need much more protection and affection than human beings who have the advantage of being able to communicate, work to feed themselves, therefore, those who take my house, I please ask to have good sense and fulfill my request..."

It seems that for every attacker who engaged in animal cruelty, there's a few who saw in animals an empathy they did not see in humans.

Patrick Purdy, who shot up a school primarily consisting of Cambodian and Vietnamese immigrants, also hated America. He had "drawn an American flag inside a circle with a slash through the flag," and the Great Satan from his "Death to the Great Satin [sic]" on his jacket apparently referred to the US.

That's one hell of a childhood memory to dredge up years later.

Charles Whitman was very good with kids, despite being childless. A child actually wandered into his garage as he was preparing for his attack: he gave the kid the barrel he just sawed off of a shotgun as a toy. [Source: A Sniper In The Tower by Gary M. Lavergne.]

Others with guilherme taucci and love for the animals:

Returning to his love of animals, Guilherme also had an appreciation for nature.  I remember in a tweet he complained about people who killed animals.  On his Twitter he followed a "Pet lovers" account.

Kip kinkel was part of a prison basketball group.

Not a mass shooter, but Timothy Mcveigh worked as a babysitter in his youth. The children he takes care of describe him as "he was very funny, the best babysitter I ever had" also that he brought plastic aliens and it took hours to place them on the walls to make games, like wars among other things.

I found Eric Houston's behavior during the attack surprising.
