    Yes, he was talented. Looking at his artwork from just a year ago---such a good artist.

    Then you can see the change. :confused:

    Parker John Mays, 27, was arrested at his home in Lawrence around 4 p.m. Jan. 14, 2020, according to the police affidavit supporting his arrest. Other court documents list the address of his family’s Overland Park home for Mays.

    Allegations in affidavits have not been proved in court, and defendants in criminal cases should be presumed not guilty unless and until they are convicted.

    According to the affidavit:

    Mays went to a Lawrence business and tried to buy a rifle. The document does not specify the business. He reportedly told employees that his family was dead and he needed a firearm to protect himself; he also told them that “the City of Baldwin had moved.”

    Video from a neighbor’s house reportedly shows Mays’ van pulling into the driveway of the Overland Park home at 12:24 p.m. Jan. 14. He left at 12:53 p.m.

    At 1:26 p.m., a woman reportedly called police to say she saw a van headed westbound on Interstate 435 to westbound Kansas Highway 10. She said she saw the driver throw a boot, two gloves and a floormat out of the van as he drove. Officers found the items and some had apparent blood on them, according to the affidavit.

    Man tried to buy gun in Lawrence, killed sister in the span of a few hours, affidavit alleges


    Much more at link!

    wow, it was right there in his IG on that day.....he was ranting about the city moving, and he was behind the move, .....I bet he tried to tell his sister and she tried to reason with him, poor girl....

    Parker Mays on Instagram: “That’s not where Baldwin city used to be”

    you can see evidence of his meltdown. Look at his most recent IG posts. He seems to be having an breakdown 6 days ago, which would be the 20th. :(

    FYI looks like he was racist way before he was "quote" crazy "unquote"

    I have yet to see one redeeming thing about this racist and just like many many others like him, he went and killed a family member likely because they didnt share his world view

    Yes Katy you called it from that instagram post. I feel sad as I know where all these places are. Lawrence being a University town has all kinds of different people living there. Mays probably felt he really fit in with many people with differing opinions. There is the downtown area where people of all walks of life are at anytime. I believe this where his first arrest occurred. I don't know if my words are coming off as they way I want.

    There are just many people of all walks of life in Lawrence, KS. I don't know if any other people out there on WS is familiar with Lawrence and KU.

    Parker mays’ father was my psychiatrist for a good 7-8 years of my life. He had me so over medicated I was in a SSRI-induced state of mania for almost 3 years; I have no recollection of most of those memories except from what family has told me. I was violent, dangerous, and had no inhibition. I didn’t even think straight, I was delusional. I can’t even identify with the person I was As mays’ patient as a successful, empathetic, and non medicated adult. There’s something more to the story of Parker mays and his relationship to his quack father that plays into this. I have horror stories from the ‘drug trials’ I was put through as his patient. Ruined my life and made me have dark thoughts, Kevin mays treats people like guinea pigs. I hope that justice is brought to that side of this story.

    Oh my God. I'm so sorry.
    I was about to say, if their father is a psychiatrist he should've payed more attention to his own son, but nevermind.

    Really sorry to hear what you went through. Glad you came back from that hell and got away from that practicing lunatic. Seems you're not alone in your disdain for the family. A couple of comments I've read go right to the parents in a WTF?

    Welcome handsandwich to WS! Thanks for sharing your story. I am sorry you had these issues.

    I had read somewhere that Parkers father was a Psychiatrist. I thought how ironic, if Parker has mental issue.

    It says he was in the house 30 min.
    He went there with purpose, to kill his sister.

    All we know for sure is that he was a racist, white supremecist nationalist. He was very open about that on his IG.

    I wonder if motive lays there
