San Jose Bankruptcy Attorney comments the divorce, bankruptcy, and foreclosure that drove Jason Rodriguez to go on a shooting spree at his former employer.
America was horrified last week when Jason Rodriguez, a former engineer, returned to his former employer and began shooting, killing one and wounding five others. Rodriguez’s life had been in a downward spiral for some time. His wife had filed for divorce, he was behind on child support, and he had lost his home to foreclosure and had filed for bankruptcy protection. These factors, along with an alleged mental illness, drove Rodriguez to his deadly rampage last week.
According to his bankruptcy filing, Rodriguez was behind on child support, and owed more than $90,000 in bills. After losing his job as an engineer, he worked in the fast food industry and a brochure on unemployment benefits was on his car seat the day he was arrested. Rodriguez offered little explanation for his actions other than he was going through a tough time personally. His attorney claims that Rodriguez is mentally ill, and his former mother in law said he is schizophrenic and prone to paranoia.
