Suspect in California rampage blamed aloof women

GOLETA, Calif. (AP) - The Santa Barbara County sheriff says investigators have a pretty clear picture of what happened in a deadly college rampage that left 7 dead and 13 others injured in a college community Friday night.

Sheriff Bill Brown appearing on CNN on Sunday morning said authorities are finalizing notification of next of kin working to make positive identifications.

Police say Elliot Rodger went on a stabbing and shooting rampage across the seaside California college town of Isla Vista that killed two young women and four men, at least half of them students at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Thirteen people were injured.

Rodger then apparently shot and killed himself inside the black BMW he used in the violence.

Brown told CNN that investigators have been in contact with Rodger's parents. Rodger was the son of a Hollywood director who worked on "The Hunger Games."
