(Wyo.)-Wyo. Campus Killer 'Near Genius' At Odds With Dad

By: Jeremy Anderson Posted at: 12/03/2012 03:49 PM
     CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A relative of a man who killed his father in front of a computer science class at a Wyoming community college called him a "borderline genius" upset by the belief he had inherited Asperger's Syndrome from his dad.
 
     An aunt of 25-year-old Christopher Krumm, Barbara Nichols, of Bakersfield, Calif., says her nephew had trouble keeping jobs and blamed Asperger's.
 
     Police say Krumm shot 56-year-old James Krumm with an arrow and stabbed him in his Casper College classroom Friday. Around six students escaped unhurt, but earlier Krumm fatally stabbed his father's girlfriend, 42-year-old Heidi Arnold, at their home.
 
     Christopher Krumm fatally stabbed himself in the classroom.
 
     Asperger's is a mild form of autism not normally associated with violent behavior. Nichols says she only knew her nephew to be polite and amiable.
