Since Day 1, local law enforcement has been very secretive about the details of this case. Is it a matter of status? One of the deceased was a wealthy doctor, and the other worked for lawyers and the DFL. What was the issue with Hoffstrom's mother's medical care that was so upsetting that it led to murder? The doctor was an OBGYN, and Mrs. Hoffstrom must've said something to her son about her experience. I strongly doubt this was a dispute over a co-pay!

Media report said the shooter had a limp that may have been caused by an injury during the child birth process tended to by the murdered Doctor.

What a long time to carry a grudge but I guess he limp is a constant reminder of the tending doctor.

As i the outcome would be any different with a different doctor.

RIP, sounds like the Doc was excellent.
