By New York Post. The man charged with murder for a shooting spree at Atlanta-area spas had “a really bad day” and was seeking to “eliminate” a sexual “temptation” prior to killing eight people, a sheriff’s captain in Georgia claimed.
Capt. Jay Baker of the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office made the cryptic remark about Robert Aaron Long during a Wednesday morning press briefing on the series of shootings.
“He has an issue that he considers a sex addiction and sees these locations as something that allows him to go to these places,” said Baker, without elaborating further on what pushed Long, 21, over the edge. “It’s a temptation for him that he wanted to eliminate.”
Baker added: “He was pretty much fed up and kind of at the end of his rope, and yesterday was a really bad day for him, and this is what he did.” (Read more from “Spa Shooting Suspect Had ‘Bad Day’ Before Massacre: Cops” HERE)
