According to Dr. Steven Sternlof, a psychologist who spoke with News 9, if Green is found guilty, his fixation on Gomez may factor into his motives for killing.
"Someone that may have an obsession, in this case with a celebrity, might have a compulsion to respond in a certain way, thinking that this celebrity is in love with them or they're in love with the celebrity and they need to be close together, and they may need to stop others that are interfering in that relationship," Sternlof said.
On Wednesday night, police discovered the bodies of 57-year-old Sallie Green, 16-year-old Katherine Cizek, 34-year-old Rebecca Cizek, and 6 1/2 month-old infant Amario Dominguez II in Green’s home. According to Fox News Latino, the Oklahoma Medical Examiner’s Office concluded that Green and Dominguez were both shot in the head. Autopsy reports for Rebecca and Katherine Cizek are still pending.
If Green is found guilty, he would not be the first obsessed fan to turn to violence in an effort to get the famous object of his affection’s attention. On March 31, 1981, John Hinkley, Jr. attempted to assassinate President Ronald Reagan in an attempt to impress the then-teen Jodie Foster. Hinkley was not found guilty by reason of insanity and is still under psychiatric care.
