Spread the love

Wearing his red suit with white fur trim, black leather belts, and boots, he approached the home of a suburban family home. As the door opens it reveals Santa holding an enormous gift-wrapped present. The man in the Santa suit is Bruce Pardo, and he comes bearing gifts. The Covina Massacre occurred on December 24, 2008, in Covina, a city in the suburbs of Los Angeles, California, United States. Nine people were killed, either by gunshot wounds or in an arson fire inside a home where a large family Christmas party was being held.

In today’s episode, we discuss Bruce Jeffrey Pardo and how he came to be known as the Santa Slayer. We’ll detail his custom Santa suit, and discuss how his previous relationships and marital problems were possible motives for the violence.
