- Dana comments on the sick tactics of an angry divorcee
45 year old Bruce Jeffrey Pardo kills 8 people at a Christmas Eve party and then sets fire to the home. Bruce Pardo’s ex-wife and her parents were among the dead. Pardo showed up at his ex-in laws house at about 11:30 PM on Wednesday evening during their annual Christmas Eve party. What happened next was pure horror.
Pardo, 45, had no criminal record and no history of violence, according to police, but he was angry following last week’s settlement of his divorce after a marriage that lasted barely a year.
“It was not an amicable divorce,” police Lt. Pat Buchanan said.
Another case of a divorce gone terribly wrong most likely compounded by the stress and depression that manifests itself in troubled people during the holiday season.
A Los Angeles County coroner’s official says a ninth body has been recovered from a home where a gunman shot up a Christmas Eve party and set the house ablaze.
Coroner’s Lt. Larry Dietz says the ninth body was found Friday morning in the gutted structure.
