What Possessed Charles Carl Roberts IV to Kill 5 Innocent School Girls … States He Molested Kids Years Ago


There are crimes and then there are crimes. What would possess a 32 year old man to kill harmless school girls? That is the question that everyone is struggling with the day after Charles Carl Roberts gunned down and killed 5 young Amish school girls.

The two latest deaths occurred overnight as a 9 and 7 year old girl passed away from the injuries suffered from their gun shot wounds. These are unthinkable acts and one wonders what Charles Carl Roberts was playing out in his mind over what transpired some 20 years ago.


A 9-year-old girl who had been taken to Christiana Hospital in Delaware died at about 1 a.m. Tuesday, hospital spokesman Spiros Mantzavinos said. A 7-year-old girl died about 4:30 a.m. at Penn State Children’s Hospital in Hershey, hospital spokeswoman Amy Buehler Stranges said.

“Her parents were with her,” Stranges said. “She was taken off life support and she passed away shortly after.” (Breitbart)


In a suicide note to his wife, Charles Carl Roberts stated that he had molested young family members 20 years ago. Also, that he was having dreams of molesting again.

The milk-truck driver who shot and killed five young girls and himself in an Amish community this week told his wife minutes before he died that he molested young family members over 20 years ago and that he had been having dreams about molesting again. (Fox News)

However, the police have interviewed family members and there was no report or evidence of Charles Carl Roberts molesting anyone.

It’s unknown what type of molestation, whether it was fondling or inappropriate touching or if it was sexual assault — or if anything occurred.”

It is reported that Roberts took the death of his child born prematurely 9 years ago rather badly. He also left several suicide notes for his wife and children. All do not completely explain why someone would take revenge on innocent children if his thoughts were of re-molesting.

Roberts left a number of suicide notes — including one for each of his three children, and his wife, Miller said. The note left for his wife referenced something he did 20 years ago but not go into detail about what that was. He did, however, say he had been having dreams recently, during which he wants to do that again. Roberts’ wife didn’t know what he was referring to until he called her from inside the schoolhouse during the attack at 10:50 a.m.

Statement from Charles Carl Roberts’ wife, Marie Roberts

Police: Killer of Amish Longed to Molest


A man who laid siege to a one-room Amish schoolhouse, killing five girls, told his wife shortly before opening fire that he had molested young relatives decades ago and had “dreams of molesting again,” authorities said Tuesday.
Despite his talk of molestation, though, and the discovery that he had sexual lubricant and flex-ties with him, police have no evidence that any of the victims were sexually abused, State Police Commissioner Jeffrey B. Miller said.

“He states in his suicide note that he had dreams about doing what he did 20 years ago again,” Miller said. (Breitbart)

      Let’s pray that those poor little girls did not have to go thru anything so vile as sexual abuse, before he selfishly took their lives.

      20 years ago this man would have only been 11-12? And nothing since that time? This is a very odd and unusual and horrific case. It has saddened the nation. I don’t understand why people can’t leave the children alone!! We need armed teachers on every campus it would seem. Not sure I trust them, either, however. But there needs to be some armed security present and having several teachers well trained in defensive techniques just might save some of these young lives. Used in some countries abroad now such as Israel with their terrorist attacks.

      I do not know what the hell is going on here, but there are WAY TOO MANY FREAKS out there today. When I was a kid we lived on the streets, riding our bikes and walking around town. Granted it was a small town…..but even today that isn’t safe. Kids are not safe on the streets alone and apparently not safe in school. WTF are we suppose to do….put them in a bubble till they are old enough to get out on their own?? This is insane.

    5. Laura on October 3rd, 2006 3:23 pm

      My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the innocent little girls who had their lives ripped away so young and so violently! It is too bad that Charles Roberts did not dream of taking his own life away 20 years earlier to save the victims and his family from the suffering that he inflicted upon them! He took the cowards way out and now he will never pay for what he has done!

    6. Marina making pictures on October 3rd, 2006 3:42 pm

      The whole case is just a proof of the wrong legeslation behind the right of having a gun. That insane guy should have never been able to own a weapon.

      Thak you for sharing this story with me !

    9. Brenda T. on October 3rd, 2006 4:48 pm

      Since this guy had no criminal history, he could legally own a weapon.

      PLEASE remember that making something illegal won’t stop any criminal. It hasn’t done anything to slow down the drug trade. The weapons trade on a black market would be the same.

      This sick predator is no different than the sick predators that roam Aruba, Joran VanDerSloot and his merry band of Pimps that prey on young innocent victims.
      The diffence is he’s white and Dutch so whatever he does illegally, whether it be drinking and gambling underaged, kidnapping, drugging, raping and murdering a young innocent American tourist girl is protected because he’s white and Dutch.
      The VanDerSloots are opportunists with a twisted edge and just right connections to go on like nothing happened.

    14. Freebrid on October 4th, 2006 9:21 am

      This is so sad. And to think these people will turn the other cheek. I’m sorry but I couldn’t do that! In this case he got what was coming to him! I just wished it would have been a slow death!! and that he could feel pain!!! People in this frame of mind have no business in the real world! Seeing all the things he had with him he was going to rape these innocent, sweet, babies! The pig needed to die!!

    15. Teresa on October 4th, 2006 11:13 am

      The whole situation is overwhelmingly sad… my prayers are with all families impacted, including the killers family. This is so sad that it depresses me if I ponder on it too long. I’ve got 13 and 9 year old daughters…

    16. Brittany 15 on October 4th, 2006 8:13 pm

    17. justin herrera on October 5th, 2006 8:10 am

      I have a 6 month old baby girl. And to read somthing like this only makes me wanna keep her to myself and not give her the chance to enjoy school as i once did as a kid. They just don’t have that privilage anymore. This man will rot in hell with this constantly haunting him He didn’t get what he deserved, he got it easy. He should have been hunged like a pig. skinned then shot in the head.

    18. justin herrera on October 5th, 2006 8:12 am

      my thoughts and prayers go out to the familys of those beautiful souls lost in this tragedy.

    19. michael mantra on October 5th, 2006 10:32 am

      There is something very wrong with this whole picture…
      what was this man Roberts’background?…was he in the military?…many Americans aren’t aware of the fact that our ‘intelligence services’ are heavily involved in psy-
      chological warfare & mind control experimentation…both
      the CIA & the army have done experimental ‘research’ on op-
      eratives & soldiers involving drugs, electro-shock & other
      Nazi-like procedures…in fact, Gary Heidnick, a mass-murdered & predator from Philadelphia who was convicted of
      murdering a number of women back in the ’70s, apparently
      was given LSD & subjected to other mind-control programming
      when he was in the Army, about 10-15 years before he went
      on his killing spree here…I can find no info on Roberts
      on the net…is it possible he was a ‘sleeper’ who was triggered by something?…people just don’t understand the
      nature of the psychopaths who are running our country at the present time…I’m trying to think like a cop on this
      particular case & something smells very funny…..Michael
      from Phila PA

    20. Carpe Noctem on October 5th, 2006 5:08 pm

      yes, I think he was in the military

      his unit was in charge of air lifting
      milk bottles behind enemy lines to thirsty

      He was involved with
      Operation: DUMBO DROP
      I think.

    21. John Hutchings on October 5th, 2006 9:13 pm

      I think that SOB got off easy. Shotting himself and feeling no pain. I think he should have been skinned alive or burnt at the stake for what he did. He should have been thrown the jail 20 years ago. He was a sick and twisted F****R. I hope he rots in HELL!!!!!!!

    22. Khudsar on October 5th, 2006 11:13 pm

      Why media is keep telling us that he has been living a perfect life and his family knew nothing. That’s impossible, they must knew something but now they are just acting surprised to fool everybody.

    23. Bruce Kliewe on October 6th, 2006 2:23 pm

      After analyzing the suicide note (I’ve been a Certified Handwriting Analyst for over 35 years) I sent my report to the local paper in San Francisco. Here’s what I wrote:

      Deep resentment coupled with feelings of inadequacy characterize the personality of shooter Charles Carl Roberts. We see the resentment by the initial rigid upstroke on almost every word written. Couple this with a highly emotional nature.

      And although Roberts was obviously Determined to carry out this act, generally speaking he shows a minimal amount of Determination, thus lacking initiative/drive in his life. The death of his daughter may seem to be the Cause of his murderous acts, but the Resentment-inadequacy came first, so losing his daughter was just one more Failure for him.

      He may have Blamed outside forces (and, indeed, initially “someone” precipitated the resentment) but being blinded by self-hatred (likely told he was worthless, wouldn’t amount to much early on) it was just a matter of time. As for his claims of having sexually abused relatives years ago –he himself could have been– this is also suggested by the handwriting evidence. He would likely have resisted any kind of Therapy.

      If anyone knows how to contact the Police Chief, John Laufer, they may want to pass on this info. Thank you.

    24. Bruce Kliewe on October 6th, 2006 2:48 pm

      The total note was not printed in the SF paper. I see now that he did speak of self hatred. The thing is, his actions don’t jibe with his murderous actions towards the innocent girls he killed. So something more is obviously at the bottom of this. That is, the death of –and continual reference to– his daughter, Elise, seems to be a “convenient” outlet for his deep anger. As I said in the analysis…the Resentment/anger no doubt came FIRST.

    25. Carpe Noctem on October 8th, 2006 7:00 pm

      and expertise on that, Bruce. I enjoyed

      Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
      Then he is not omnipotent.
      Is he able, but not willing?
      Then he is malevolent.
      Is he both able and willing?
      Then whence cometh evil?
      Is he neither able nor willing?
      Then why call him God?

    32. Nelly on April 13th, 2010 9:38 am

      I remember this story but I also watched the movie the other day. After reading what some people have put on here back in 2006 I realize that some of the people that made postings have issues too. One person blamed God and posted two bible verses to go along with what he said and what he wrote was all wrong. God did not create evil but only gave us free will and those people that do evil are by their own hands and not Gods. If you are going to blame someone why not the person that did it. Charlie Roberts did something years ago as a child that was bad and God forgives that. Charlie killed people in 2006 which was horrible and the Amish forgave him. Charlie will stand before God for what he has done. I saw where someone said about letting them out so they can do it again and they were talking about molestation another. I am sure they weren’t talking about Charlie because he was never arrested when he was 12 for what ever he may have done when he was 12. Also, someone said years ago you could ride your bike down the road without trouble and I say that while you were riding your bike down the road someone on your block was being molested and you just don’t know that. People in this world are sick and don’t think that this sickeness just showed up now because it happens more then people imagine and you could be walking outside of someone home on a stroll of your daily walk and inside that home a child is being abused. So it doesn’t matter that you may have not heard about it when you were little and it wasn’t because it never happened but only that people aren’t afraid today to say anything as much as they were then. Unless you walk in the shoes of someone that it has happened to then you will not understand that molestation has been there… you just didn’t hear about it and thank God that you were never touched.

    33. Kelly on June 15th, 2012 1:23 am

      I have read some of these comments and seen that people have the audacity to blame his family for knowing something was wrong and not doing anything. I knew Charlie and his family. There is no excuse for what he did. It was a terrible tradegy and those poor girls were completely innocent. He was a nice man for as long as I knew him and must have just gone crazy that week. I wish he did just take his own life. I can say that his wife had no idea what was about to happen. He just seemed depressed, quiet and detached a few weeks before it happened. At least the Amish realized this and paid their respects for her loss as well as she paid her respect for the loss of their daughters.
