With the ongoing criminal case against the father for armed burglary where he beat a guy with a gun and the reported felony conviction in Indiana for a Sex Crime, similar to statutory rape, it seems like the father had a propensity for violence and power over others. Did he act on this with his son? Was he violent towards MS? Was he a domineering, violent husband who wouldn't allow his wife to get mental health help for his son? Some people still view mental health counseling for sissies and don't want to admit they need help. <modsnip: removed social media rumor> MS had a hard, difficult family life, no doubt. Did he just reach a breaking point and decided he could take no more? Sounds like it.
