TW: Self-harm, Child-harm
At twenty-three years old, Steinke was seemed to be adept at very little and was the antithesis of ‘cool’ to just about everyone who knew him. Steinke suffered physical and emotional abuse for most of his life. He dropped out of high school as a teenager, and at the time he murdered the Richardson family, was living in a trailer park with his mother. An unequivocal victim of circumstance, Steinke was dealt a bad hand from the get-go. Was it a pass to commit murder? Of course not. Is there any such pass?
