Was Suspected Toronto Van Attacker Inspired by Elliot Rodger?
Published on Apr 25, 2018
Could a mass murder be the twisted inspiration behind the massacre in Toronto that left ten pedestrians dead on Monday? In 2014, 22-year-old Elliot Rodger killed six people in Santa Barbara, California. He said he carried out the shooting because he said he could not get a girlfriend. Now, 25-year-old Alek Minassian claims he drove a rented van down 16 blocks down a busy street in Toronto, taking out anyone in his path, because he was rejected by girls and was inspired by Rodger.
