One newspaper article theorised that he chose schools because he'd been bullied badly when he went to school himself, and because he never got the chance to go to a prestigious school - jealousy I guess. But myself, now that I've read that he had some connections to Vancouver I'm wondering if he had a personal reason to choose those schools. IIRC one of the notes he sent said "DIE B****! SOON!" and the other said "Roses are red, violets are blue, the police will need dental records to identify you b****. Which apparently was from a movie called Valentine. Also, the fingers on one of the hands he sent had been cut as if to remove the fingerprints, the other hand hadn't been cut in that manner. I'm not sure which hand it was, or if it matters. I just checked the timeline, and I'm not sure when he lived in Mt Pleasant but he was moving around a lot in 2005 and 2006. He was living with his dad for a while, at one point apparently he had a roomate called Nader Eid and Barbie Swallows said she lived with him briefly in 2006 in his apartment Toronto. In Winter 2006 his psychiatrist wrote that he had been moving around a lot and was currently in Peterborough. So he can only have lived in Mt Pleasant for a few months at most, and when he moved out he still owed $2,500 in rent. In other words, he couldn't afford it I wonder if part of the reason he was moving a lot was to escape paying back-rent.
