Gym killer leaves dark Web diary, details of plot

A man who sprayed bullets into a fitness class filled with women, killing three and then himself, apparently kept a Web page in which he wrote about years of rejection by women and an earlier plan for violence at the gym in which he said he “chickened out.”

Neighbors described 48-year-old George Sodini as anti-social, and the Web page in his name showcased a resume setting forth his credentials as an unhappy loner. It listed his date of death — Aug. 4, 2009 — and his status of “Never married.” The page ended with the words “Death Lives!”

Obviously not a “he just snapped” moment. He’d been planning this since at least November and had actually gone in on January 4th intending to go before chickening out.

If he thinks he was lonely, unhappy, and unfulfilled while alive, I wonder what he thinks about his situation right now.
