Dark secrets: The family obituaries of Connor and Megan Betts make no mention of their intertwined fate or hint at what was going on in the shooter's mind. Innocent: Police still do not know if Connor Betts intended to kill his sister Megan or if she was an accidental victim. Nowhere in the wholesome online tribute to Betts is there any hint of the darkness of the young man who drove into town that Saturday night.
He had his best friend, Chace Beard, 24, and his sister at his side and a rifle, body armor and hundreds of rounds of ammunition in the trunk. According to one close friend who spoke to DailyMail. Surveillance camera footage shows Betts entering Blind Bob's bar with his sister and Beard shortly after 11pm.

It is still unclear whether or not he meant to target Megan or his friend but according to Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl shortly before he opened fire he received a text message from the pair telling him that they were going to a taco stand. That was the first place the gunman targeted though investigators remain unsure whether or not he could really see it from where he burst out and began shooting.

12222 MLB draft: Picks and analysis
In a disturbing detail, he told how Betts even shot with the gun he would eventually use in his massacre. As Law wrote, if he were 6-foot-3, Carroll might have been a candidate to go first overall. Why the Diamondbacks took him here: With seven of the first 75 picks, the Diamondbacks have the biggest draft pool of the 30 teams, and they might have received a gift here with their first selection. Given the success of all the undersized players across the majors right now, Carroll's size isn't the big negative it might have been viewed as a generation ago.
Who is Rutledge? If you thought Alek Manoah was big, wait until you see the 6-foot-8, pound Rutledge on the mound. Rutledge landed at San Jacinto after transferring from Arkansas and dominated with a fastball that regularly touched 98 mph this spring. Why the Nationals took him here: With Rutledge's high 90s fastball, a cutter and an improving breaking ball, it's not hard to understand why Washington would jump on a chance to draft a pitcher with that upside.
But it remains to see what he'll do against elite competition after taking the junior college route to the draft. Who is Priester? A 6-foot-3 right-hander from a northern state, Priester is a strike thrower with a repeatable delivery and a swing-and-miss curveball. Why the Pirates took him here: Just before the draft started, Keith Law said he was hearing Pittsburgh was likely to go with a high school arm here.
Given that Will Wilson and Shea Langeliers two players Law had going to the Pirates in mock drafts already were off the board, it seems the Bucs' decision was made easier by those selecting before them. Who is Thompson? The Kentucky product is a southpaw who has proved he can compete against high-level competition in the SEC this season. He struck out batters in 90 innings and posted a 2.
Why the Cardinals took him here: According to Keith Law, Thompson could have been a top pick if not for a elbow issue and some late elbow pronation in his delivery. The Cardinals have a history of success drafting starting pitchers from major conferences, and Thompson could be next in line. Who is Kirby?

A 6-foot-3 right-hander who is not from a power conference, Kirby gets his fastball up to 95 mph, and his curveball and changeup both rate as above-average. Why the Mariners took him here: Well, for the third time in four years, general manager Jerry Dipoto took a smaller-college guy in the first round, following outfielder Kyle Lewis Mercer in and pitcher Logan Gilbert Stetson last season. Like Gilbert, Kirby is viewed as a high-floor guy more so than having a high ceiling, and given the state of the Mariners' pitching staff, betting on a higher degree of certainty is understandable.
Who is Shewmake? A contact hitter in the power-strikeout era, Shewmake hit over. At 6-foot-4, he is a tall shortstop who could end up at second or third or moving around the diamond. Why the Braves took him here: Have we mentioned that college hitters are the strength of this draft?
Shewmake proved himself in the tough SEC, and he is a safe bet to produce with his hit tool. There isn't a lot of power here, but Atlanta added a second high-floor player after landing Shea Langeliers at No. Who is Jones? A draft-eligible sophomore, the switch-hitter is an 80 runner, and then some, making him the fastest player in the draft. That makes him one of the most exciting players in the draft.
And while he has a strong arm, Keith Law thinks he will move to center field and has concerns about Jones' hit tool he did hit. Why the Rays took him here: Speed never slumps! The Rays have one of the top two farm systems, allowing them to gamble here on a player with game-changing speed. The one thing Tampa Bay's farm system does lack is an obvious center-field replacement for Kevin Kiermaier -- who has been injury-prone in recent seasons -- so if Jones moves to center, he has the speed to give the Rays another great glove in the outfield.

He is the No. Why the Rockies took him here: Law mentioned going into the draft that Colorado was one of the toughest teams to get a read on, so it's likely the Rockies saw something in Toglia that others didn't.

While the glove is the calling card for Toglia, he has posted a 1. Who is Espino? A prospect Keith Law calls a smaller 6-foot right-hander with effort, Espino has first-round stuff despite his stature. He is a Panamanian-born pitcher who managed to overcome the stigma smaller starting pitchers face in the first round of the draft. Why the Indians took him: Cleveland is one team that isn't afraid to keep a smaller pitcher in the rotation think Trevor Bauer , and the Indians are getting a pitcher with as much pure stuff as anyone who has been picked.
Espino has flashed 99 mph on his fastball and shown a hard slider to go with it, meaning the payoff for Cleveland could be high if this pick works out. Who is Hoese? The Royals took Hoese in the 35th round last year as a draft-eligible sophomore, but he returned to Tulane and improved from.
He will turn 22 in July, making him the oldest hitter in Keith Law's top , and Hoese eventually could end up at first base.
