In the aftermath of the Planned Parenthood attack and the death of three people, investigators and journalists alike are searching for a motive in shooter Robert Lewis Dear’s past.

So far, no one has turned up any religious extremism or obvious bigotry, but Dear has had a history of unstable relationships with his family and neighbors and even a run-in with animal cruelty.
