They had an old childhood friend of Karr's (they knew each other from 7th grade on) who is a woman on Catherine Crier. There was video from when Karr was a teenager, which showed a nerdy but well-nourished looking guy with a late 70s, early 80s redneck mullet. The friend described him as friendly if somewhat spacey (actually, what she described were classic Aspergers Syndrome symptoms) who never dated before he married. She also said his grandmother was very much involved in his life, as opposed to his grandfather. But she never said whether they were his dad or mom's parents, not did she give the reason for his being sent to be raised by them. She descirbed him as one of those "genius type guys that had problems getting along with people" and said that between their childhood and when she last saw him in 1996/1997 he became increasingly stranger. I wonder what happend in his life to trigger this personality split. Did his grandmother die aroudn that time or what?
