Jared Loughner's Ex-Girlfriend, Kelsey Hawkes, Interview

Daily Mail Would Like Us to Believe Loughner's Ex Caused His Meltdown

Today Arizona shooter Jared Loughner's ex-girlfriend, Kelsey Hawkes, spoke out, but now two very different stories are spreading. A Daily Mail interview quotes her saying their breakup, six years ago, was the start of his mental spiral downward.

"Something changed in him, he was not the same person when I told him it was over . . . I remember his face clearly — he just looked like he had nothing to live for . . . Jared was a normal person. It all stopped when we broke up."

This article is quoted on MSNBC, the New York Post, and numerous other outlets, yet nothing about it seems accurate if you watch the above interview from CBS's Early Show today. She sounds as surprised, shocked, and horrified as everyone else. "Back then he was completely different of a person," she says, "very caring, very gentle, very sweet, kind, a little quiet, but altogether pretty great guy." While she admits she's heard no good news about him in the last five years, she never once indicates, even infers, their breakup was a catalyst for his personality change.

The media may be trying to romanticize it rather than following up on the likelihood that it's linked to a mental illness. His youtube page, people from his college all sort of verify a mental disorder.
