Connection between Zachariah Peterson and Chris Harper Mercer. Coincidence? Doubtful.
When it comes to criminal investigations, I've never been one to believe a whole lot in coincidence.
What's the connection, and I don't necessarily mean a physical connection, between Zachariah Peterson and Chris Harper Mercer (the Roseburg killer)?
Peterson apparently intended to attack and murder teachers and staff at a Christian school. Chris Mercer lined-up his victims, asked if they were Christians and, when they acknowledged that they were, he shot them in the head.
Coincidence? Doubtful. Power of the press to create deadly 'copycats? Likely.
