Derek Connell, the man suspected of gunning down his mother and stepfather on April 30th suffers from “all kinds of medical and mental conditions” his attorney Paul Cadman claims. Cadman stated Connell’s service for his country overseas is the cause of his conditions. Connell pleaded not guilty to the two charges of first degree murder placed on him. During proceedings Connell was seen wearing paper clothing which is a clear indication of his status on suicide watch. According to Cadman the U.S Department of Veterans Affairs failed to provide Connell the help he so desperately needed when he was discharged.
