    A kid who apparently had everything going for him, at first glance. Sounds like maybe he went down a wrong path some time ago and dad got tired of funding his wastrel lifestyle.

    Money and greed all over again
    He has not been named a suspect yet, but by all accounts he was lucky to have an education only a few can afford, so why wasn't he able to pursue his dreams. He wasn't even able to pay his rent.
    Likely felt entitled, always wanted more for little or no effort required.
    If so, I guess he has made his bed.

    He graduated from Princeton but couldn't find any kind of work? And he killed his father over 200 bucks a month?

    From Fifth Avenue's link:

    "The defendant also had 21 blank credit cards and a skimming device, which swipes credit and debit-card information when affixed to an ATM, prosecutors said."

    I am sure he would have been able to find work, but may be not the work he wanted?
    Perhaps, with little or no experience he was offered some entry level job but he wanted to be CEO.

    Wanted to be a successful businessman like his father, but perhaps he wasn't prepared to work hard for hit.
    So he plotted to take over his father position as head of the company, likely a successful business, by staging his suicide.
    Just plain evil.

    The ultimate basement, nope scratch that, penthouse dweller. THIRTY YEARS OLD?!? FFS, get a job, son. It's not like you didn't have the social connections via your family and friends.

    Imagine what that money and education could have done for a bright young soul willing to put it to use to better him or herself.

    The man accused of killing his millionaire Manhattan dad is straight out of the horror flick “American Psycho’’ — “able to charm . . . with his good looks and his waspy background, but behind that, he was dangerous,’’ a close pal told The Post in an exclusive interview Tuesday.

    Thomas Gilbert Jr. should have been locked up for arson and for the violation of a protective order against him long before the slaying — but “wasn’t because he’s a charming, white Princeton graduate,’’ the friend said.

    That is what I am thinking too. Someone who is narcissistic and has an extreme sense of entitlement like Elliot Rodger.

    Sounds like a person who likely lives a life of crime. An identity thief perhaps.

    EXCLUSIVE: 'A friend warned Tommy would kill me': Ex lover of Princeton grad who 'shot dead his father' reveals he dreamed of being a model and was in therapy
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...end-Anna-Rothschild-says-warned-kill-her.html

    The socialite ex-girlfriend of Tommy Gilbert, the trust-fund Princeton graduate believed to have shot dead his father, says she was repeatedly warned that he 'would chop her into tiny pieces'.

    Anna Rothschild, 49, dated the 30-year-old aspiring model and actor for four months early last year but broke off the relationship because there was no long-term future.

    The socialite, who is not related to the powerful Rothschild banking dynasty, exclusively told the Daily Mail Online that when she first began seeing Tommy, after meeting him at a friend's dinner party, a close friend had called her out of deep concern.


    There are lots of red flags raised with Thomas Gilbert Jr. He also had poor relationship with his father, Thomas Gilbert Sr. I notice many criminals have negative relationship with one or both parents.

    from your link:
    "Friends and family said that Gilbert Jr. suffered from obsessive-compulsive disorder that had become more severe in recent years and made his behavior increasingly erratic. ''

    How hedge fund boss dad who was 'killed by his 30-year-old trust-fund son' in fight over allowance was only worth $1.6m - and had put his Long Island mansion up for sale

    The 70-year-old, multimillionaire hedge fund manager allegedly killed by his own son over money may not have been as wealthy as was widely reported.

    Thomas Gilbert Sr., founder of Wainscott Capital, and his family are undoubtedly wealthy. But, as it turns out, the hedge fund manager was no magnate.

    His reported $200 million hedge fund was actually only $7 million, and the pedigreed Wall Street veteran was doing some 'modest downsizing' in the months before his death, the New York Times reports.
