    Remember when school shootings or shootings in general were once in a while. Now it's everyday. No place is safe, movie theaters, schools, supermarkets.

    The world gets scarier and scarier everyday.


    My thoughts are with all involved.

    So scary. My brother is a sophomore at Purdue. I graduated from Purdue in Dec 12. You don't think it will happen so close to you.

    Don't think so. It is reported by Jconline (journalcourier) a purdue newspaper that the suspect is cody cousins. It has been reported that he targetd a TA teaching a class in the basement during a class.

    A suspect identified as Cody Cousins, 23, was booked into Tippecanoe County Jail at 5:15 p.m. and was being held without bond in connection with the homicide, jail officials said.

    Purdue Provost Timothy Sands confirmed one fatality resulted from the shooting. The victim was identified as a male. During a 2:30 p.m. news conference, officials released no identity, saying that would be up to the Tippecanoe County Coroner.
    Graduated from purdue in May 2010 and I know so many people that go there currently or work there. I think I found his facebook page (easy to find search on facebook and he has his current city as west lafayette) But for me it is locked down...

    I recognize the building in the cover photo as well as his groups are Purdue and Electrical Engineering..

    Here is Cody (the shooter's) fb... since the mugshot was posted I can be sure it is his as it matchs the fb picture and is the one i thought it was before...

    https://www.facebook.com/cody.cousins.31?fref=ts

    The Purdue Exponent is the student newspaper. The J-C is the Lafayette newspaper. Lafayette is across the river from Purdue and West Lafayette. The two cities are linked by bridges.

    Cody Cousins appeared in court today. A plea of "not guilty" was entered for him. He could face up to 65 years in prison if convicted.

    Officers from multiple agencies stormed the apartment building and executed a search warrant in Apartment 2, where Cousins lived. What they took was not clear. The street was sealed off at each end during the search.

    For most of his Purdue career, Matyasovski has lived an arm's length away in Apartment 1.

    "I lived next to this guy, and I knew Andrew (Boldt) as well. To imagine someone, such a nice guy like that, just gone ... life snatched away by somebody else I knew. It's not something I ever thought I would experience in my life.

    "Obviously something was wrong in (Cousins') life. I don't know what ... I didn't see any outward expression of that."
    No explanation yet why CC did this. Sounds like AB was very well-liked. I have a feeling his motive was similar to that of the killers of Annie Le and Christian Aguilar -- extreme envy.

    BTW, the previous article indicates that CC also attacked AB with a knife. It's clear CC intended to kill someone, but why take 2 weapons to scene of crime?

    Here is a picture of Andrew Boldt, the victim:



    This article has additional information:

    http://www.jsonline.com/news/crime/f...241666281.html

    <snipped>
    Court documents released Thursday describe how police found Boldt with gunshot and stab wounds inside Room 067 in the basement of the electrical engineering building, where he was working as a teaching assistant.

    Bloody footprints dotted the floor, and a knife and a handgun lay on the ground, along with several spent shell casings.

    Andrew Pawling told the Purdue Exponent that he heard "pop" sounds while he was in the lab and turned to see his teaching assistant being killed "point blank."

    "As I was turning around I heard another pop, then I saw my (teaching assistant) fall to the floor. The guy got on top of him and then shot him in the face, once or twice and maybe two more times," Pawling said.

    Tom Novak, a senior from Hammond, Ind., lived down the street from Cousins and knew him through mutual friends.

    "He was calm and calculating and smart," Novak said. "He wasn't a nice guy. He was rude and argumentative."

    Novak recalled that Cousins would often show up at Novak's apartment unnannounced and tried to steer discussions to scientific ideas.

    Cousins showed a streak of stubborness and always thought he was right, Novak said. "He was intelligent but he didn't have emotional intelligence," he said. "I feel like he lacked empathy."

    Sounds like there wasn't any warning; CC just walked into the lab and attacked AB. I think that last part is key. I remember first seeing the mugshot of the killer and thinking how much it looks like Austin Sigg's mugshot.....same cold, glaring eyes.
