    #UPDATE: Pastor Rammell says Roger Self & his family left church and headed to the restaurant. They had drinks and appetizers when Roger got up and left the table. They noticed his car was "circling the parking lot" & the next thing they knew, "he came through the window." @wcnc

    "What happened yesterday was not a testimony of Roger Self but a testimony of mental illness that absolutely overtook him 2 months ago."

    Family pastor says Roger Self suffered from severe depression and anxiety.

    "Roger deeply loved... He deeply loved his family." #CLT

    Does depression cause you to murder your family by such a dramatic display?
    Is depression correct?

    He rammed his car into a table that seated his wife, his son and his DIL and their 13 yr old daughter, and his own daughter. wow


    this is from the link in the OP:


    Pastor Austin Rammell, the minister of Venture Church where the Self family attended, told the Gaston Gazette that Roger Self had recently been battling depression and mental illness. In the past two months, his condition reportedly had worsened. He would go days without getting out of bed and became paranoid. He felt he was evil, friends said.

    “He has been a shining light as to what it means to love people and then all of a sudden, about two months ago, it was like someone flipped a switch. I had never met this man,” said Rammell. “Taylor (Roger Self’s third child) is saying (today), ‘This is not my daddy.’”
