Note the bandage on the little girls hand and the rips in the boy’s pants
Publishing this information got me suspended from Facebook. Jason Dalton
wanted to kill his family but didn’t have the stomach for it so he killed a father
and son looking at used cars. Dalton’s attorney denied reports that the family was
experiencing financial troubles and said that the couple was not estranged at the
time of Dalton's arrest. This is a lie concocted by Dalton to take the heat off his
wife. His wife Caroline knew what he was up to because he had previously
popped a few caps in her direction. A next door neighbor, Gary Pardo heard shots
coming for the Dalton home and believed Dalton’s story that he was firing

warning shots in the air to scare away a burglar. He also heard shots on the night
of the mass murder. The Detroit Free Press reported:
Next to his house is a large garage with three bays. The garage
windows were broken Sunday, and the door was open. Empty
Monster energy drink cans were strewn throughout the garage,
which Gary Pardo, who lives across the street, said Dalton used
as a workshop to restore Volkswagen Beetles. Dalton bought a
gun months ago, Pardo said “He had a couple of break-ins, so he
purchased the gun for self-defense,” he said. “On a couple of
occasions he fired off rounds late in the evening. He said, ‘I shot
it to scare them away.’ ” Pardo and his wife, Sally, said it’s not
unusual for his neighbors to have guns, since many of them are
hunters. “He was a nice guy. They were a normal family,” Sally
Pardo said. At about 11:30 p.m. Saturday, the Pardos said they
heard three shots from Dalton’s house. Then around 3:20 a.m.,
they looked out and saw cars surrounding the Dalton home.
“They escorted someone into the house and a few minutes later
a woman came out carrying a big plastic container,” Sally Pardo
said. “We obviously heard about the shootings, and were
shocked, but we didn’t know Jason was involved until we heard
it on the radio (Sunday morning),” she said. “We were shocked.
Something must’ve snapped. He was such a nice guy.”
