CRIME, Tomporowski seeks new trial for killing parents [W]

This on TV in Iowa and Wisconsin.

In 2004, Steven Tomporowski of Westchester killed his parents and uncle on a Wisconsin farm.

The judge rejected his insanity defense. He's seeking a new trial.

ABC7 (Sara Schulte) reported that Tomporowski was tripping on on LSD at the time. And Wisconsin State Journal (Susan Lampert Smith) wrote:
According to the criminal complaint, the victims had been shot; their bodies were covered with makeshift shrouds and decorated with "small toys placed right next to or on each of the bodies."

  • Maybe I'm a bleeding heart liberal, but I'm thinking that killing parents plus bizarre rituals with toys...?

    Well, the boy ain't right....

  • The Tomporowskis were good friends of my family, Steve premeditated it, I hope like hell he never gets out. He wasnt "right" for a very long time

  • man steve (the son) was in my Psych class junior year. I always thought something was wrong with him. The teacher always had to stop class cause he was annoyed that all steve did was either sit there or sleep. So he was always stopping class to get him some paper and a pen to make him take notes. I was kool with some of the administrators too. and when i was in their office they were talkin about how strange it was that after that happened Steve's school records just dissappered as if he never existed at that school. but ne who.... he was just a strange kid and i wasnt at all suprised when that happened. It was just all to sad though.

  • Old post, but my family was friends with them, and I went to school with Steve.

    When the kid started drugs, he was never the same.

    He acted bizzare always, and cracked out. He formerly was quiet and withdrawn before drug usage.

    Ultimately, it's Steve's fault for this whole tragedy. There's still people around who pressured him into taking powerful drugs, and school staff who were quicker to kick Steve out of class than help him clean up.
