As a Jacksonville Child Custody Lawyer I know all to well that custody disputes can get very volatile. Unfortunately, one custody dispute in Southern California turned deadly this past Wednesday.
Reports have come out that 42-year-old Scott Evans De Kraai of Huntington Beach, California allegedly opened fire at the salon his ex-Wife worked, ultimately killing eight people including is ex-Wife.
Orange County court records show that Mr. De Kraai and his ex-Wife, Michelle De Kraai, were involved in child custody dispute and a child custody evaluator was recently appointed by the court in April.
It is unknown what drove Mr. De Kraai to take such deadly action, but it is hard not to suspect the court battle between his ex-Wife played a factor.
