Isla Vista Shooting

Murders three roommates

23 May, 2014

Rodger kills his two roommates, Cheng Yuan Hong and George Chen, and a visitor, Weihan Wong, in their shared apartment in Isla Vista, California, near the campus of the University of California at Santa Barbara. One news report later claims Rodger uses machetes and a hammer, not a knife, to kill the three men. Sheriff Bill Brown later reports, “The three male victims appear to have been repeatedly stabbed.” In his manifesto, he explained why he wishes them dead:

These were the biggest nerds I had ever seen, and they were both very ugly with annoying voices. If they were pleasant to live with, I would regret having to kill them, but due to their behavior I now had no regrets about such a prospect. In fact, I’d even enjoy stabbing them both to death while they slept. After that, I will start luring people into my apartment, knock them out with a hammer, and slit their throats. I will torture some of the good looking people before I kill them, assuming that the good looking ones had the best sex lives. All of that pleasure they had in life, I will punish by bringing them pain and suffering. I have lived a life of pain and suffering, and it was time to bring that pain to people who actually deserve it.
