EXCLUSIVE: 'I tried to offer him advice on talking to girls, but he wouldn't do it': Virgin killer's best friend reveals he warned his mother about disturbing Facebook post months ago

Pictured: Virgin killer's six victims identified - including his two roommates who he killed just weeks before they were set to move out to get away from himPhilip Bloeser - elliot rodger - COMP.jpg

  • Philip Bloeser, 22, was one of 30 people that Elliot Rodger sent his hate-filled manifesto to on Friday
  • Bloeser has said that he can't sleep or eat since reading the 22-year-old's 140-page-long rant
  • Revealed that he began to worry about his friend in January after a disturbing Facebook post
  • Bloeser described his friend as having a 'boring personality' and being 'incredibly shy'
  • Claimed that he was not as close as Rodger made out in his manifesto
  • Bloeser said that Rodger kept his mental illness hidden from everyone
  • Elliot Rodger killed stabbed and shot six people on Friday in Isla Vista, California

 

One of the Virgin Killer’s best friends has told how his world has been turned upside down by Elliot Rodger’s bloody massacre, saying: ‘I can’t believe I was friends with a psychopathic, mass murderer’.

Rodger’s referred to Philip Bloeser as his first real school friend in the warped manifesto he wrote before carrying out the brutal rampage that left six people dead and 13 injured. 

Philip is actually referenced almost as much as anyone in the document.

And he was one of 30 people who received the chilling manifesto, emailed by Rodger just nine minutes before he killed his first two victims, sorority sisters Veronika Weiss and Katie Cooper. 

The 22-year-old had already slaughtered three victims in his apartment and went on to gun down 20-year-old Chris Martinez in a local deli.  

The first Philip knew about Friday night’s carnage in Isla Vista was when he turned on the TV the following morning and watched in horror as his school friend’s horrendous crimes were described on the news.

He then checked his emails and found the manifesto, which left him sick to his stomach. Speaking to MailOnline in his first full interview, the devastated 22-year-old said: ‘I have been literally sick every day since this happened. I can’t eat and I’m struggling to sleep.

‘I just can’t believe I was friends with a psychopathic mass murderer. Elliot was incredibly shy and awkward his entire life and it was clear he had issues, but there was never anything to suggest he was capable of this. He never displayed anything even bordering on violence or aggression. 

‘If I’d had even the faintest idea I would have done something. Back in January he posted something slightly worrying on Facebook. It wasn’t extreme or aggressive, but he seemed depressed.

Sick: Elliot Rodger, 22, stabbed three people in his home and shot dead three other students before he took his own life on Friday. The rampage came after he posted rants online about how women hated him

‘I can’t remember it word for word, but he was basically saying how lonely he was and that no girls would ever talk to him. I actually posted a comment to try to cheer him up, but he deleted it. 

‘I was a bit worried, so I called his mum Chin, to make her aware of it. She was worried as well, but she told me they were doing all they could to help him, that he was seeing a psychiatrist and was taking medication.

‘I honestly had no idea he was being treated for mental health problems, but when his mum told me that I felt reassured and thought, that’s it, case closed, the issue is being dealt with. His parents loved him and they never pushed him away.

‘When I saw what had happened on the news my jaw dropped to the floor and I was shaking in disbelief. Then I read the manifesto. It makes me sick to think just nine minutes later he shot those girls.

‘I have seen Chris Martinez’s father talking about losing his only son and it is absolutely heartbreaking.’

'They were really good kids,' a neighbor at Rodger's apartment complex told ABC7. 'They were so quiet. They were extremely smart.'

All six victims have now been identified in the Isla Vista killing spree that left seven people dead, including gunman Elliot Rodger, 22.

His other three victims were students Chris Michael-Martinez, 20, Katherine Cooper, 22, and Veronika Weiss, 19, all of whom died after being shot.

Cooper and Weiss were both members of the same sorority. They were shot and killed while standing near the Alpha Phi sorority house.

Weiss, a first-year student, had been a water polo player at Westlake High School who earned league honors during her senior year, according to the Thousand Oaks Acorn newspaper.

Her father, Bob Weiss, told KPCC that his daughter was the kind of person who often reached out to awkward young men who felt like outsiders at school.

'It's ironic. She hung out with a lot of the scholarly students at school. Some of the boys, they gravitated to her - not as boyfriend/girlfriend so much. If they were a nerdy kid who felt out of place, Veronika would welcome them,' said Weiss.

'She was everybody's daughter. She was a wonderful citizen of this world.'

Cooper, a resident of Chino Hills, California, was about to graduate with a degree in art history.

'She was a self-proclaimed princess and I love her for that,' said her friend Courtney Benjamin. 'And I know she has a crown on her head today.'

Andrew Notohamiprodjo was Cooper's ballroom dance teacher three years ago and later supervised her as a teaching assistant in ballroom dance. Cooper was looking forward to graduating but planned to stay in town another year, he said.

'She was a lot of fun, super forward,' he said. Cooper graduated from Ruben S. Ayala High School in Chino Hills in 2010.

Michaels-Martinez, 20, was an English major from Los Osos, California, who had planned to go to London next year and to law school after graduation.

His distraught father, Richard Martinez, made an impassioned outburst on Saturday, blaming America's gun laws for his son's untimely death.

'Our son Christopher and six others are dead,' he told reporters gathered outside a sheriff's station for a news conference. 'You don't think it'll happen to your child until it does.'

Martinez choked back tears as he spoke, then grew angrier as he talked about gun laws and lobbyists.

'The talk about gun rights. What about Chris' right to live?' Martinez said. 'When will enough people say: 'Stop this madness! We don't have to live like this! Too many people have died!

'Why did Chris die? Chris died because of craven, irresponsible politicians and the NRA,' Martinez said.

He then punctuated his words as he said, 'We should say to ourselves: "Not! One! More!"' before dissolving into tears and falling to his knees as he stepped from the podium.

Friends said Michaels-Martinez, who served as residential adviser at a dorm last year, was the kind of guy who would welcome strangers into his home.

According to her Facebook page, victim Katie Cooper, 22, majored art history and archeology at UCSB.

'She was a shining star,' Cooper’s devastated aunt, Stacy Simmer, described the slain young woman. 

Simmer said San Bernardino sheriff’s deputies came to her sister’s house at 10am Saturday and told her that Katie had been killed in a drive-by shooting.

‘I was on my way to church and my brother-in-law, Dan, called me and said, "Stacy, are you driving? I need you to pull over because I have something terrible to tell you,”’ Ms Simmer recalled. ‘”There was a guy in a car and he was driving around shooting people, and Katie was one of them and she was killed.”’

The distraught aunt went on, saying: ‘Katie was the apple of all of our eyes… She had a 4.8 GPA and did a lot of charity fundraising for St Jude’s Children's hospital.

‘She was studying archeology and she was in in a wonderful sorority.

‘Her parents, Katie and Dan, left for Santa Barbara as soon as they heard. Her two brothers, Nick, 26, a chemist in Colorado, and Jon, still in college, are on their way there now.  They were as close as any siblings can be.’

Stacy Simmer said she was told by her sister that when her niece’s body is released to the family sometime next week, she will be laid to rest in their local Catholic church. 

Richard Martinez, Christopher's father, said of his son: 'He was an English major and he wanted to go to law school. He grades were excellent.

'Both my wife and I are attorneys and I wasn't thrilled about him doing that, but we didn't want to argue with him. He was an only child.'

Rodger's father, Peter, has released a statement via his lawyer. It said: 'The Rodger family offers their deepest compassion and sympathy to the families involved in this terrible tragedy.

'We are experiencing the most inconceivable pain, and our hearts go out to everybody involved.'

It came as friends and relatives of the gunman shared their shock and heartache at what unfolded in the early hours of Saturday.

‘Oh my God, my God. This is terrible,’ said Christian Rivas, a close friend and neighbor of Elliot Rodger’s 18 year-old sister, Georgia, when asked about Friday’s tragedy.

‘I was hanging out with Georgia till two o’clock this morning at the local park and she was happy and laughing - she had no idea what was going on with her brother.  She must be devastated - I feel so bad for her…and the victims.”

‘She was always worried about Elliot. She would say that she didn’t understand him because he was always such a loner - he didn’t want to have anything to do with anyone else and he had no friends.

‘Georgia said that when they did talk, they would often fight because he didn’t seem to be interested in anything or anyone. She couldn’t relate late to him and he was so anti-social.”

Christian, 19, lives around the corner from the neat, three-bedroom home on quiet Windom Steet in West Hills - about 25 miles north west of Los Angeles - where Elliot’s mother, ‘Chin’ Rodger, 53 lives with Georgia.

‘Elliot wasn’t really living here all the time any more but he stayed here a lot,’ added Christian, who attended nearby El Camino High School, the same school both Elliot and Georgia went to.

‘When I would go to their house to see Georgia, if Elliot was in he would never come out into the living room and talk.  He always stayed locked in his bedroom by himself.

‘He always kept very much to himself.  When he did go out he would sometimes just drive round the neighborhood aimlessly in his car - I think it was a black BMW. 

‘Georgia had a boyfriend once who just couldn’t figure Elliot out and called him a “real weirdo.” The boyfriend would say “hi” to him but Elliot wouldn’t say a word. He’d just go to his bedroom and slam the door

‘The only person he spent time with was his mother. I think he was quite close to her.  His mom is very sweet and nice and I think she gets on well with Elliot and Georgia’s dad, even though they’re divorced.

‘I feel so sorry for Georgia and her mom and dad. They’re a really nice family and this is going to devastate them. Elliot was a strange guy and Georgia did worry about him a lot. But something as horrific and violent as this - she could never have imagined anything so awful happening.'

Authorities are examining a video posted on social media by the shooter in which he rants about women who supposedly rejected his advances. 

The video is called Elliot Rodger's Retribution.

Rodger, a Santa Barbara City College Student and Isla Vista resident, according to his social media accounts unleashed a tirade about his 'loneliness, rejection, and unfulfilled desires,' and blames women for preferring 'obnoxious brutes' to him, 'the supreme gentlemen.'

'I'm 22 years old and I'm still a virgin. I've never even kissed a girl,' he says in the video.

'College is the time when everyone experiences those things such as sex and fun and pleasure. But in those years I've had to rot in loneliness. It's not fair. 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,' he says in the video, which runs to almost seven minutes.

He repeatedly promises to 'punish' women and lays out his plan for 'retribution.'

'I'm going to enter the hottest sorority house of UCSB and I will slaughter every single spoilt, stuck-up, blonde s**t that I see inside there. All those girls that I've desired so much, they would've all rejected me and looked down on me as an inferior man if I ever made a sexual advance towards them,' he says.

'I'll take great pleasure in slaughtering all of you. You will finally see that I am, in truth, the superior one. The true alpha male,' he laughs like a maniacal movie villain. 'Yes... After I have annihilated every single girl in the sorority house I will take to the streets of Isla Vista and slay every single person I see there. All those popular kids who live such lives of hedonistic pleasure...'

His YouTube account contains numerous other videos in which Rodger talks of his loneliness and anger at the women he says snub him. 

He called police several weeks ago after being alarmed by YouTube videos 'regarding suicide and the killing of people,' a lawyer said Saturday.

Police interviewed Elliot Rodger and found him to be a 'perfectly polite, kind and wonderful human,' family attorney Alan Shifman said. 

A three-week old video called 'Another sunny day in Santa Barbara' include the description 'I temporarily took all of my Vlog's down due to the alarm it caused with some people in my family. I will post more updates in the future.'

Rodger's Twitter account has only two tweets, posted on April 19 and 20.

'Why are girls sexually attracted to obnoxious, brutish men instead of sophisticated gentlemen such as myself? #girls #perverted #sex #unfair,' reads the first.

Seven dead, including attacker, in University of California...

Rodger was on a website forum called PUAHate.com, which describes itself as the 'Anti-Pickup-Artist Movement' and aims to reveal 'the scams, deception, and misleading marketing techniques used by dating gurus and the seduction community to deceive men and profit from them.'

Its members are all men who have spent a lot of time and money on books and seminars and other materials that claim to help men 'pick-up' women - but failed.

The bitter, often misogynistic threads are full of tales of woe from men who don't know how to get women to date them and blame the women themselves for the problem. 

He posted in 2013, 'If you could release a virus that would kill every single man on Earth, except for yourself because you would have the antidote, would you do it? You will be the only man left, with all the females. You would be able to have your pick of any beautiful woman you want, as well as having dealt vengeance on the men who took them from you. Imagine how satisfying that would be.'

Rodger's actions have been lauded on the site by other members who have called him a 'hero.'

Brown said the shootings occurred at several sites in the town, resulting in ten crime scenes.

Santa Barbara County sheriff's spokeswoman Kelly Hoover told KEYT-TV the gunfire broke out around 9:30 p.m. Friday in the Isla Vista neighborhood.

A student told the station he saw shots fired from a BMW, fatally striking one woman and critically injuring another woman.

'I heard shots, scream, pain,' Michael Vitak said. 'All emotions. I hope she is going to be fine.'

The station said a black BMW slammed into as many as two cars.

The shooting prompted officials to issue alerts urging people to stay indoors.

Isla Vista is known for parties, including an annual spring bash that turned into a violent blowout last month as young people clashed with police and tossed rocks and bottles. A university police officer and four deputies were injured and 130 people were arrested.

  • Elliot Rodger, 22, killed Martinez and five others before shooting himself
  • Rodger outlined his plans in 140-page manifesto and disturbing videos 

Surveillance cameras inside a delicatessen have captured the terrifying moment when a 22-year-old crazed gunman opened fire on strangers, killing an innocent college student.

IV Deli Mart was one of ten locations around the University of California at Santa Barbara campus where Elliot Rodger went on a bloody rampage, which left six people dead and 13 others injured.

One of Rodger's victims on Friday night was UCSB sophomore Christopher Martinez, 20, who was shot in the head while getting a snack in the grocery store on Pardall Road in Goleta, California.

The surveillance video obtained by CNN does not show the exact moment when a bullet struck the English major, ending his life, but it conveys a general sense of panic reigning inside the deli.

In the footage, several people are seen standing in line for the cash register waiting to pay for their purchases when Rodger opens fire off camera, sending bystanders diving for cover.

Somewhere to the right of the surveillance camera, Mr Martinez is struck by a round in the head, crumpling to the ground. 

On the left, a refrigerator door is shattered after been struck by a bullet. One of the customers hits the ground and slides on his stomach behind a rack laden with snacks.

The deadly crime spree in California that left six people dead and 13 others injured began with three stabbing deaths inside the killer's own apartment and concluded with the son of a Hollywood bigwig shooting himself in the head.

Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said yesterday that Rodger began his deadly rampage in his apartment in Isla Vista, where he stabbed to death three men around 9.30pm on Friday night.

The rampage covered a wide area in the vicinity of the UCSB campus with 10 separate crime scenes.  

The bloody saga came to a close when Rodger, the son of The Hunger Games assistant director,  turned the gun on himself, firing a single shot at his head, which caused him to crash his car filled with guns and ammunition.

On Saturday, Mr Martinez's grief-stricken father Richard spoke out in an emotional appeal for increased gun control.

'Our son Christopher and six others are dead,' he told reporters gathered outside a sheriff's station for a news conference. 'You don't think it'll happen to your child until it does.'

Mr Martinez Snr choked back tears as he spoke, then grew angrier as he talked about gun laws and lobbyists.

'The talk about gun rights. What about Chris' right to live?' Mr Martinez Snr said. 'When will enough people say: 'Stop this madness! We don't have to live like this! Too many people have died!'

He then punctuated his words as he said, 'We should say to ourselves: "Not! One! More!"' before dissolving into tears and falling to his knees as he stepped from the podium.

The massacre perpetrated by Elliot Rodger also claimed the lives of Veronika Weiss, 19, and Katie Cooper, 22, both sisters at the Delta Delta Delta sorority.

The two were struck by flying bullets in the vicinity of the Alpha Phi sorority house. 

The sheriff's department said the rampage was 'the work of a mad man,' which started on Friday night with the stabbing of three men in Rodger's apartment and ended with him taking his own life. 

Before launching his deadly attack, the gunman released a disturbing video outlining his murderous plans and a rambling 140-page manifesto detailing his revenge plot against sorority girls who would not date him.

As the shooting unfolded, residents took to social media to share the news and warn others.

'I could have easily been dead right now. RIP to the girls who got shot and killed and other people who got run over by this idiot,' tweeted one.

'ANYONE IN IV NEEDS TO STAY INSIDE. There is a shooting rampage by a white male in a black BMW shooting as he is driving by,' wrote another. 

Sienna Schwartz said the shooter approached her and said, 'Hey what up?' and then began shooting at her as she walked away. 

The distressed girl said she initially thought the gun the shooter flashed at her was an airsoft gun but realized it was real when three or four bullets buzzed past her ears.

  • He says he plans to enter the 'hottest sorority on SCSB' and 'slaughter' the girls inside
  • Rodger is believed to be the son of The Hunger Games assistant director Peter Rodger

 

A gunman went on a drive-by shooting rampage in a Santa Barbara student enclave and at least seven people were killed, including the attacker, authorities said.

Investigators believe a 22-year-old named Elliot Rodger driving a black BMW acted alone in the shootings around 9:30pm Friday night in Isla Vista near the University of California, Santa Barbara.

Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown confirmed at a news conference early Saturday that that seven people were killed, including the gunman, and seven wounded.

Brown said the suspect exchanged gunfire with deputies and then drove off and crashed into a parked car.

'We have obtained and are currently analyzing both written and videotaped evidence that suggests this atrocity was a premeditated mass murder,' Brown said.

Rodger is thought to be the son of Peter Rodger, assistant director of the Hollywood film franchise The Hunger Games. 

Authorities are examining a video posted on social media by the shooter in which he rants about women who supposedly rejected his advances. 

The video is called Elliot Rodger's Retribution.

Rodger, a Santa Barbara City College Student and Isla Vista resident, according to his social media accounts unleashed a tirade about his 'loneliness, rejection, and unfulfilled desires,' and blames women for preferring 'obnoxious brutes' to him, 'the supreme gentlemen.'

'I'm 22 years old and I'm still a virgin. I've never even kissed a girl,' he says in the video.

'College is the time when everyone experiences those things such as sex and fun and pleasure. But in those years I've had to rot in loneliness. It's not fair. 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,' he says in the video, which runs to almost seven minutes.

He repeatedly promises to 'punish' women and lays out his plan for 'retribution.'

'I'm going to enter the hottest sorority house of UCSB and I will slaughter every single spoilt, stuck-up, blonde s**t that I see inside there. All those girls that I've desired so much, they would've all rejected me and looked down on me as an inferior man if I ever made a sexual advance towards them,' he says.

'I'll take great pleasure in slaughtering all of you. You will finally see that I am, in truth, the superior one. The true alpha male,' he laughs like a maniacal movie villain. 'Yes... After I have annihilated every single girl in the sorority house I will take to the streets of Isla Vista and slay every single person I see there. All those popular kids who live such lives of hedonistic pleasure...'

Rodger's Twitter account has only two tweets, posted on April 19 and 20.

'Why are girls sexually attracted to obnoxious, brutish men instead of sophisticated gentlemen such as myself? #girls #perverted #sex #unfair,' reads the first.

'Why do girls hate me so much?' he posted on April 20, along with a now-deleted YouTube video. 

Deputies found the suspect inside the BMW dead from a gunshot wound to the head. But the sheriff said he did not know if the suspect was shot and killed by deputies or if the wound was self-inflicted. A semiautomatic handgun was recovered.

As the shooting unfolded, residents took to social media to share the news and warn others.

'I could have easily been dead right now. RIP to the girls who got shot and killed and other people who got run over by this idiot,' tweeted one.

'ANYONE IN IV NEEDS TO STAY INSIDE. There is a shooting rampage by a white male in a black BMW shooting as he is driving by,' wrote another. 

A witness says Rodger fired into a crowd standing outside of a Deli Mart.

'I heard somewhere between 12 to 20 shots into a group of people who were eating in front of it,' witness Robert Johnson told NBC Los Angeles.

Sienna Schwartz said the shooter approached her and said, 'Hey what up?' and then began shooting at her as she walked away. 

The distressed girl said she initially thought the gun the shooter flashed at her was an airsoft gun but realized it was real when three or four bullets buzzed past her ears.

Comment by Bombahdrop on June 4, 2014 at 9:56am
Alllll these hateful crimes happening are alllll the Devils doing, the Devils job is to possess and command their souls to wreak havoc and destruction to hurt God And Mankind. Now that I got that off my chest, to us it appears as he was sooooo unhappy with his life and those who treated him less than a human by depriving him of what he expected of them so he made a choice to do this and take his self out so he didn't have to face the music. I bet you now he knows he made the wrong choice while that fire in hell is tormenting him for what he's done

A crime for some folk get classed as "mental illness."  Cindy Cee their do seen to be a self hate by this man evidence when dyed his hair blond to fit in.

Comment by Cindy Cee on June 1, 2014 at 3:01am

Blonde obsession killed him.  Anything less than a blonde woman was not good enough, but they had no interest in him.  He would never date a woman like his mother.  He hated Asians and Africans, hated to see 'the descendants of slaves' with white women, but no one seems to know or care about his rampaging hatred, everyone wants to cry, 'mentally ill'.

Comment by Sanddra Davidson on May 31, 2014 at 3:52am

I'm not surprised, the media will always show and try to make everyone believe that blacks do all the killings, but it is a true fact that white people are sick individuals who commit mass murders since the begining of time. No one should be surprised, how many white kids have committed this same kind of crimes in the past? Too many to count. Most of them were rich and priviledged kids. Goes to show you that money can't buy happiness. It's better to be poor and happy.

Another spoil,rich angry bastard looser who is crazy and suffering from AFFLUENZIA and is angry with the entire world. RIP to the victims

This Memorial Day weekend, while Americans across the nation were honoring our fallen soldiers, we were also overwhelmed by another tragedy – a murderous rampage by a gunman at the University of California-Santa Barbara that claimed six lives and left eight others wounded.

One of those killed was Chris Martinez, whose father Richard had this to say about his devastating loss:

“Chris died because of craven, irresponsible politicians and the NRA. They talk about gun rights. What about Chris' right to live?”

The Brady Campaign stands firmly with Mr. Martinez. He got it exactly right.  Politicians continually ignore the will and the well-being of the American public and, instead, take their marching orders and money from the corporate gun lobby.

Shamefully, these politicians do not care who is buying guns – convicted felons, domestic abusers, rapists – just as long as the corporate gun lobby is happily making the biggest possible profit.

Now more than ever, it is essential that we Americans rise up and call out the corporate gun lobby and the ‘craven’ politicians who do their bidding.

Call Senator Heitkamp at 1-866-340-6857
Tell her that you haven't forgotten when she voted against the amendment to expand Brady background checks and chose to stand with the corporate gun lobby instead of representing the overwhelming majority of her constituents who support background checks.

The gun lobby has millions of dollars from big gun corporations. We have the truth and the voice of every decent American who wants and deserves a nation safe from gun violence.

Thanks to Americans like Richard Martinez, that voice of truth is starting to be heard. Let’s show Mr. Martinez that we are right there beside him.  Call Senator Heitkamp today and remind her that she works for the American public and not the corporate gun lobby.

Dan Gross
President
Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence

P.S. You can make a difference by joining Brady supporters from around the country at the 2014 Brady National Summit in D.C. from June 9 – 10.
