Head cold forces delay

24 Apr, 2014

Rodger plans on launching his killing spree on April 26, but two days before, he wakes up with a bad cold. He chooses to delay the massacre until May 24. He will later write:

It was as if fate itself was trying to stop me from doing it. But what other reason do I have for living? Alas, there was no way I could carry out my plans if I had a cold. Everything had to be perfect.
