The Washington Post: ‘They showed his photo, and my stomach just dropped’: Neighbors recall synagogue massacre suspect as a loner - "Neighbors knew Robert Bowers as a truck driver who rarely hosted visitors but exchanged pleasantries as he came and went from his first-floor apartment in a complex in Baldwin, a suburb on the south side of Pittsburgh. His unremarkable facade made the role authorities say he played in the massacre that left 11 dead all the more chilling, they said."
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: Dispatch from Squirrel Hill: Dread in a Peaceful Place - "We knew it could happen here -- any here, anywhere -- when we learned that nine people were killed three years ago in the historic Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, S.C. We knew it could happen here -- any here, anywhere -- when we learned that six were killed in the Islamic Cultural Centre of Quebec City last year. Now we know it can happen here, as anywhere, because it has."
