Unhappy Spammer kills himself, wife, daughter and injures another after escaping jail

Tragically, well known spammer Eddie Davidson, of Colorado in the USA, this week became a murderer.

After escaping from a minimum security prison where he was being held for 21 months after being convicted of spam-related offenses in which he promoted small cap stocks via bulk unsolicited email, Eddie killed his wife and his daughter, while shooting a teenaged girl in the neck. He then turned the gun on himself.

Whoa... o.o

Seems rather odd though. I'm curious as to why he would go though all the trouble of escaping just to kill his family and himself. The story didn't go into much depth but my guess is that the boy and teen were just in the wrong place. Interesting how the two victims that weren't in his family are the two who survived.

Yikes. It's amazing how talented some folks are at making a giant mess of their lives, and those around them too. Imagine if he had spent the time in jail writing a tell all confessional book about his life as a famous spammer. He might have emerged a millionaire instead, with a big beach house in Hawaii.

Very pathetic and cruel story. I can't blame this person because he has died by himself. Though he has killed his all family members.
