Troubled Past Of Suspected Coronado Shooter Revealed

10News learned Reeves, 25, was an active member of several online discussion groups, including an automotive group, but he didn't always discuss cars.

In a December 2010 posting, Reeves wrote: "I might come across as a nice guy, but I unintentionally screw people over on a regular basis."

Reeves also wrote that there were several things he wanted to change about himself, including: "I'm brutally honest" or "Sometimes I'll say stuff that perhaps I should word more carefully or not say at all. (This generally has only gotten me in trouble with girls)."

In another posting, Reeves said: "Whenever I try to do something nice to help people out, it goes horribly wrong, and everyone would have been better off if I just kept to myself."

These statements don't strike me as anything more than the rest of us should be admitting to ourselves and the World.

Who was it that said: "Most men live lives of quiet desperation". At least he was trying to share his desperation with others.

No suicidal/homicidal clues here.

Agreed. No pathology to be found in those remarks. Does anyone have a complete list of the deceased persons? Only read about the pilot and his sister. What about the other pilot/naval officer? Who was the 4th person?

Breaking story on regarding an alleged assault of former MN gov and UDT12/SEAL Jesse Ventura by another SEAL at Mc P's. Where an alleged SEAL says he punched Ventura and ran away at Mc P's. Ventura denies it ever happened and Faux news is about as accurate as msnbc, cnn and the other claptrap. Here's a link to the interview.

John - all the deceased are named in the 10News article linked above.  The "alleged" shooter and the brother were both naval officers, then the sister (Karen), and a man from Chula Vista (Matthew).

I disagree with a couple of you who wrote that Reeves’ comments are not clues to possible suicidal or homicidal behavior.  While I would agree that the comments are not grossly violent, I do believe every one of them independently and more importantly, collectively depicts a man who viewed his interactions with others as a failure. Constantly feeling like you’re a failure in relationships will lead to anger and depression, which are clearly precursors or “clues” to possible suicide and / or homicide.  I’m not suggesting that these clues could or should have been seen, but they are there…in my opinion. Bottom line is I’m sure we all agree it’s a horrible tragedy. My condolences go out to all of the families and friends who lost their loved ones.
