IT IS being reported that a film director's son believed to have carried out shootings in the US grew up in Sussex.

Elliot Rodger, who is believed to have killed himself after stabbing three men to death and shooting three others in California on Friday, spent the first five years of his life living in Sussex.

The 22-year-old student, who had been diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, was the son of Hollywood filmmaker Peter Rodger, assistant director of The Hunger Games series.

"Grew up in Sussex"

There isn't a shred of evidence to show that he grew up anywhere.

Thank God he's dead.

National press reports that he relocated to the US with his family aged 5. He grew up American in the USA.

It took me 2 minutes and a bit of googling to find that he grew up in a house called "The Old Rectory" in Pulborough and went to the nearby Dorsett House private school. Not sure why the Argus couldn't have done the same........

Sadly in this country there still is little support for those diagnosed with Aspergers syndrome and for some the mental health problems that they can suffer along side being an Autistic person. More needs to be done to support adults with this condition.
