            Charles Carl Roberts IV revealed to his family in notes he left behind and in a mobile phone call from inside the West Nickel Mines Amish School in Pennsylvania that he was tormented by memories of his abusive past. He also spoke of having dreams about doing it again. Investigators spoke to the two women, who would have been aged four or five at the time, and they said there was no such abuse. “Both of them have no recollection of being sexually assaulted by Roberts,” police spokeswoman Linette Quinn said. “They were absolutely sure they had no contact with Roberts.” 

            Roberts stormed the school and shot 10 girls before turning the gun on himself. Investigators claim Roberts, who brought lubricating jelly and plastic restraints with him, may have been planning to sexually assault the Amish girls. Five pupils were killed in the attack. Yesterday, the victims were identified as Naomi Rose Ebersole, seven; Anna Mae Stoltzfus, 12; Marian Fisher, 13; Mary Liz Miller, eight; and her sister Lena Miller, seven. Stoltzfus’ sister was among the wounded. Three other girls were in critical condition and two were in serious condition. They ranged in age from six to 13.
