The suspect in the Highland Park, Illinois, parade shooting’s former football coach claims to recall numerous warning signs, but none specifically regarding the alleged shooter. Instead, Jeremy Cahnmann was worried about the suspect’s parents.
Cahnmann claimed in a Fox News interview that Robert Crimo III’s parents were “a problem” and at best cared nothing for their child.
Police said Crimo, 21, opened fire on the Highland Park Fourth of July parade, killing seven people and injuring scores more. He was then apprehended.
Cahnmann, who oversaw an after-school sports program, claimed that Crimo’s parents were frequently the last to pick up the child and his younger sibling.
“Every week, the Crimos were the last kids there, and we’d have to call their parents to pick them up,” he stated.
Crimo may have gone unnoticed by his parents, but according to Cahnmann, he never created any trouble in the Nerf football league.
More on this story via The Western Journal:
“The kid was really quiet, really soft-spoken, never made an issue,” the coach said.
From the sound of things, Crimo’s father, Bob, might have been inattentive, but his mother, Denise Pesina, was more actively problematic as a parent.
“She got into it once with one of the heads of the program, she was yelling,” Cahnmann said.
“It seemed like her kids were a nuisance to her.”
This, of course, was when Crimo was young. As he got older, neighbors said things began to escalate.
“The signs were there for a long time,” a neighbor said, according to Fox News. CONTINUE READING…
