CASE WESTERN KILLER’S MOTIVE

A pretty whacked out guy.

Halder’s anger centered on university employee Shawn Miller, a school computer-lab assistant Halder believed had hacked his site, thereby destroying his life. He pursued Miller, whom he described as an evil man, through the civil courts and in numerous complaints to the university president, the campus police, the Mayor of Cleveland, the FBI and even the US House and Senate Judiciary Committees, but his pleas for justice were ignored at each turn.
“The end result of all of these outright evil actions will be that society will end up paying a severe price,” Halder had warned in one such communique. . . .
Halder . . . believed he possessed the secrets to peace and prosperity for all mankind and graciously shared these nuggets of wisdom via his Web site — until someone deleted its entire contents from his computer.
“I try to solve mankind’s problems through the Internet,” Halder explained in a court deposition against Miller. “In a few seconds, the evil man wiped out everything that it took my lifetime to create,” he later whinged in an e-mail to school officials. . . .
