A former girlfriend of Dayton mass murderer Connor Betts told NBC News that on their first date he showed her body camera footage from a mass shooting at a synagogue, the first of what turned out to be a number of warning signs that led her to break up with him.

Adelia Johnson, who said she briefly dated Betts earlier this year, told The Blade that he also brought her to a firing range to shoot and that another time, asked her to come along with him as he tried to drop off an anonymous threatening letter to an ex-girlfriend, which particularly unnerved her and led her to break off the relationship.

Johnson said she met Betts in college and they hit it off over their common struggles with mental illness and that he appeared to be intelligent and outgoing.

She told NBC that she did not think his actions were motivated by race or religion and were probably a result of a lack of treatment for his mental illness.

USA Today listed other details about Betts that have come to light since the shooting.

These include that he was suspended from high school for making a “hit list” of those he wanted to kill and those he wanted to rape, according to former classmates.

Another classmate who performed in a high school theater production with Betts said he repeatedly threatened to kill her.
