Suspect Leaves PS3 with eBay Instructions to Roommate Before Shooting Spree

Last Saturday, suspect Erik Salvador Ayala fired into the streets of Portland, Oregon. He killed two and injured seven before shooting himself in the head. But beforehand, he'd left meticulous instructions regarding his PS3's future.

The unemployed, depressed 24-year-old left his roommate a suicide note containing hazy details of his location along with personal information (like his SSN and bank account). And then he went into a meticulous set of instructions regarding his PS3.

You know my ps3 is special. Similar USED ps3's go for AT LEAST $US450-$US500. Our landlord guy wants a ps3 like mine. Let him know that $US400 would be a GOOD deal. If he doesn't want it, format the drive by going to Settings>System>Format Utility. You can say it "comes with the latest firmware software" to help market it on the internet. In case you don't know, it's the special "100% backwards compatible" (60 GB) ps3.

An awkward moment of kindness preceding the most selfish act of murder. It's hard to understand, but that's probably a good thing. [KATU via Kotaku]
