Inside The Twisted Head Of Gym Shooter George Sodini
Yesterday we reported on the horrific health-club shooting in which woman-hater George Sodini walked into a Pittsburgh LA Fitness Club and open fired on a bunch of women taking a Latin Impact dance aerobics class. He killed three and injured nine others before killing himself. New facts are emerging about this crazy dude and they are totally disturbing. After the jump, find out more about George Sodini’s life. Sodini, 48, was super, super lonely and sad, and we aren’t really surprised. He hadn’t had a girlfriend since 1984 and it had been 19 years since he had sex. Sodini worked as a systems analyst at a Pittsburgh law firm but those who knew him said he was nerdy, quiet, and kind of antisocial. He’d been planning his attack since November and even “chickened out” once, on January 6.
On his website Sodini complained about getting rejected by women saying, “[They] don’t even give me a second look ANYWHERE.” He couldn’t seem to understand why chicks didn’t dig him because, he said, he dressed well, had a nice body, and smelled good. Oh yeah, and he was super tan. But, dude, looks aren’t going to help you land dates if you are a complete psycho.
Sodini’s family, who responded to the horrible shooting, said, “Our hearts and prayers are with the victims and their families and we pray for the full recovery of the survivors.” [AP via Yahoo]
