Mental illness is a serious problem that, if left unchecked, can lead to severe consequences. That’s certainly not to say that every person with a mental illness is on the brink of committing a heinous crime, but it does indicate that those struggling with such matters need to be taken seriously and treated with sensitivity.
That may have been the case with Christopher Cadenbach, whose apparent emotional instability may be the reason why he did something unforgivable. While there’s no way to excuse what he did, but perhaps by understanding his story, we can prevent something similar from happening again.
Police are still investigating Christopher’s motives, but one could assume that it had something to do with the ongoing legal battles with his ex-wife and mother of his children. This is an absolutely devastating story.
