Those who read or study rather macabre history will recall the case of. Her mother was an S&M prostitute who did her deeds in a one-room house with her small daughter who she tried to abandon, poison, and often incorporated into her adult sexual trysts. Her dad was a drunkard.
Bell, by the age of 12, had killed two people.
When a child is brought up in such a home, no one is surprised by the outcomes. The Las Vegas shooter’s father who gunned down people enjoying a Jason Aldean concert yesterday “was on the FBI’s 10 most-wanted fugitives list in 1968 after escaping from a Texas prison that same year,”to the U.S.A. Today.
Benjamin Paddock was sent away for twenty years to the “Federal Correction Facility in La Tuna, Texas,” for the crime of “robbing Valley National Bank in Phoenix in 1960.” U.S.A. Today uncovered the information from “a 1971 story in the now-shuttered Tuscon (Ariz.).”
Stephen Paddock, the Vegas shooter, was his 64-year old son. Certainly, the apple did not fall very far from the tree in this family and one shudders to think of any other offspring and how they are likely damaged. Paddock killed himself when cops busted into his room at the Mandalay Bay hotel yesterday.
His criminal father went by the names “Perry Archer, Benjamin J. Butler, and Leo Genstein.” He even used the moniker “big daddy,” though if he had been a bigger daddy, his son may not have killed innocent people in cold blood from a room window in the casino.
It is thought that the father had robbed two other banks but the charges were dropped, likely because he was already captured. That capturing was quite hard, too, since the robber tried to mow over cops with his car when they attempted to take him in.
Benjamin Paddock was, records tell us, an “extremely dangerous” psychopath who had “suicidal tendencies,” all traits that we saw in his son right up to and including when he shot himself to death.
Back when “big daddy” was active, an F.B.I. agent said that he was “a glib, smooth-talking man who is egotistical and arrogant.”
In 1978, the elder Paddock was living under the assumed name of “Bruce Warner Erickson” and he ran a bingo parlor in Springfield, Oregon. So good was he at his new identity that he even had the legal papers to have the parlor.
The establishment “opened as part of the nonprofit organization Center for Educational Reform in Eugene, Ore,” and if that were not bold enough, the bank bandit even racked up two driving tickets in the state and the error was never noticed.
Perhaps the elder Paddock straightened up and flew right later in life, unlike his son, who killed 58 people and injured more than 500 as he showed the world all the things that he learned from “big daddy.”
