Sheriff’s deputies are convinced that Elliot Rodger planned his killing spree, which left a total of six people dead on May 23, a full year in advance. They were able to gather the grizzly details from the 130 plus page manifesto Elliot wrote before he carried out his horrific act.
Elliot Rodger, 22, didn’t turn into a deranged killer overnight. According to Sheriff Coroner Bill Brown, Elliot mapped out and planned his shooting rampage a year in advance. These new details were gathered after reading Elliot’s 130 plus page manifesto written and discovered by police after the killings.

The plans Elliot made to kill people in the tight-knit university community outside of the University of California Santa Barbara had apparently come together in the past year.
These details were revealed by Sheriff Brown in a press conference on May 24.
Elliot had become overly frustrated by his lack of luck with women and began planning to “punish them for it.” He was also said to have been frustrated with his parents divorce. Both of these frustrations culminated in a year-long plan to kill, according to Sheriff Brown.
“My orchestration of the Day of Retribution is my attempt to do everything, in my power, to destroy everything I cannot have,” Elliot wrote in his chilling manifesto.
He carried out his plan to the fullest, first stabbing and killing his three male roommates, then killing two sorority sisters (Katie Cooper, 22 / Veronica Weiss, 19).
The last victim, Christopher Ross Michael-Martinez, was killed in a deli from a gunshot wound to the head. A total of 13 other people were seriously injured in the spree as well.

The year of planning ended with a seven minute video clip, which Elliot posted on YouTube. In the equally chilling video Elliot says, “Tomorrow is the day of retribution, the day in which I will have my revenge.”
“You girls have never been attracted to me. I don’t know why you girls aren’t attracted to me, but I will punish you all for it.”
