When one reads about Dimitrios Pagourtzis, he has no background on crime. Never been arrested. Member of his local Greek Orthodox church and a member of a dance troupe in that church. Honor roll student. Defensive player on the football team.
However, quiet. He started wearing the trench coat to school after the Parkland High shooting; it was common to see him wearing it so he didn't stand out on the day of the shooting. The guns (shotgun and pistol) he used were legally owned by his father.
Washington Post: Alleged school killer Dimitrios Pagourtzis had a fondness for trench coats and a growing darkness
Still I suppose the signs were there in the few days leading to the shooting. He showed a fascination with fascism and things military. As per the WP article, "on the same day he posted the T-shirt photo of himself [born to kill], Pagourtzis uploaded a picture of a jacket adorned with several pinned symbols. In captions, he explained the significance of each: the Communist Party’s hammer and sickle representing rebellion, Nazi Germany’s Iron Cross representing bravery, the Japanese rising sun for the tactics of kamikaze pilots, the Knights Templar’s Baphomet for evil and the Cthulhu from science fiction for power."
But no prior history of that kind of interest.
Hard to understand...being bullied perhaps.
