PLACE YOUR BETS!Hmm... so, apparently, this Scott Dyleski kid who is alleged to have murdered Pamela Vitale, the wife of prominent defence attorney Daniel Horowitz, was a loner who wore all-black clothing and nail polish and the like.
"Sources say Dyleski attended Acalanes High School, but took the GED and was studying art at Diablo Valley College. He apparently had no prior trouble with law enforcement.
A student at Acalanes, who asked not to be identified, said he knew Dyleski when the two attended Stanley Middle School together in Lafayette. He described the suspect as a "normal" suburban kid who was a Boy Scout, loved baseball and earned good grades. But Dyleski's life took a turn between the seventh and eighth grade, the boy aid.
In 8th grade, Dyleski started wearing a black trench coat and elaborate metal jewelry on his fingers and his behavior seemed strange, the boy said. Dyleski was defensive about his trench coat and once punched a sixth grader who said something about it, the boy said. School officials banned trench coats shortly thereafter, but Dyleski continued wearing black clothing, the boy said.
"It wasn't just the coat and the things on his hands, it was his attitude and his personality. It changed too. He seemed angry," the boy said."
Hmmm... since this kid sounds so "goth" and "emo", I'd be willing to bet, sooner or later, they'll find a LiveJournal filled with bad poetry and nihilistic thousand-word-long paragraphs about how he hates his life, his parents, his school, his town, and his goldfish. (Though, if he has one, and I really have no idea whether or not he does, he'd have used a pseudonym, because I Googled for Livejournals belonging to anyone named "Dyleski", and the only one that came up was someone with a different first name who appears to have taken his or her LJ offline some time ago. Nothing relevant came up for Xanga either.)
