The gunman's ex revealed that Cassidy had sexually assaulted her and threatened her during the time together. She mentioned that he suffered bipolar tendencies as he could be a nice guy one minute and become volatile in the next.

She also recounted how Cassidy would often complain of his job, ranting about how his boss disliked him and how he was often mistreated at work. There was also a cry out about the work being too much.

However, she summed it all up as Cassidy’s mental issues. The suspect’s ex-lover noted that he proposed to her when they were together, but she declined and ended the relationship.

Investigations earlier bordered on whether there was a connection between the fire outbreak in Cassidy’s home and the mass shooting.
