Murderer

He shot and blugeoned his stepfather, mother, half-brother, a friend, and 11 other random strangers to death with a .22 LR rifle and hammer.

Early life: Borel was born to a family where both his parents were working in the military at his birth. Very shortly after, Eric was sent to live with his father's parents where he stayed until he was 5 years old. At his 5th year, his mother brought him back in her care.

Borel's mother was supposedly "religious" woman who when Eric came home she cruelly beat him; telling him he was a child of "sin." Eric was so frightened of his mother, that when he was 8 years old, rather than go home, ran away and hid somewhere in town until he was found later shivering from the pain.

He had a fondness of weaponds and used to shoot sparrows with an air gun.

Later years and motives: Until his death, Borel was a high school student who studied electromechanics. A week before he murdered his family, he told one of his classmates he would soon commit suicide, but not before shooting two or three people.

At around 8:00 P.M. on Sept. 24th 1995, police arrived at the scene. When they got there, they found Borel's dead body-he had committed suicide. He was sitting under a cypress tree in front of a school, a bullet hole in his head.
