It's a kind of fame and we all feed it. And the flip side is, if this happened 20 or 30 years ago, we might (but probably wouldn't) hear about it as a news blurb on the radio, but otherwise it would be a story talked about for a couple of minutes on a nightly news broadcast. Hours and hours will be dedicated to this story and others like it, every miniscule detail of it will be dissected by "experts" as we all try to info-tain ourselves to death. It's really kind of sick.
Dude probably had a psychotic break.
