He had been institutionalized for mental health ... by his own parents.
He was on mind-alterning prescription medication.
He pushed his girlfriend around, part of his "abusive" behavior.

Steven Kazmierczak had the look of a boyish graduate student — except for the disturbing tattoos that covered his arms.

He was also known to watch Oprah on weekday afternoons. (Okay, that part is made up. But those tattoos -- obviously that's where the story lies.)
