I'm not a shrink, but, maybe he felt abanonded and that led to severe rage/anger issues. Teen boys need their dads.
(Not that any of this is an excuse for murder).
I'm glad you qualified your comments. These events are NO excuse for murder. I've known many patients and acquaintances that were beaten savagely by their parents..........but later grew up with no violent tendencies.......in fact, with greater appreciation for compasionate social interaction. Hernandez is at very least a sociopath, if not a total psychopath.......and as such has innate character that has never had nor ever will have the ability to live among fellow human beings.
