Although my first reaction to this incident is, of course, sadness at the tragedy of it, I also find a layer of the purely bizarre in this. Listening to the 911 phone call from the perpetrator was particularly enlightening in that respect. See http://www.nbc17.com/download/2006/0306/7748965.mp3 .

Hope you're doing well, J!
