WZTV FOX 17 - Top Stories
Fox 17 dug deeper and uncovered what some call an unexpected past that makes this case even more perplexing for the people that know him.
According to 2001 news reports, a Massachusetts man named Craig Garber drove more than 200 miles from his home to help victims in the rubble of the 9/11 attacks.
Jacki Allison says that's the same Craig Garber that lives next door to her family in Bellevue.
"He was very nice," Allison said. "He was always there to help me."
She said it's also the same Craig Garber who police believe stabbed three people to death early Sunday morning. The victims were a grandmother, her daughter and a 14-year-old grandson who were Allison's next door neighbors on the other side.
"It just breaks my heart that this happened to them," Allison said.
Sunday afternoon Allison was still struggling to understand why it happened. She said Garber was always very nice to the victims and that the Garber she knew was an animal lover and a poet.
She also showed Fox 17 the heartfelt poems he'd written about 9/11.
But other neighbors say they'd seen a dark side.
"He had crazy eyes," said Josh Kirby who lives in the neighborhood. "He jumped around to a lot of different subjects when trying to tell me a story and it was just very unnerving."
Kirby said he and his wife met Garber a few weeks ago and that they sensed immediately that something was different about him.
"My wife, she was very scared of him from the very beginning," Kirby said.
Investigators say Garber's family told them he suffered from emotional issues and was taking medication.
Allison said she'd noticed mood swings.
"There was definitely something that he was battling," Allison said.
But she never imagined he could be capable of something like this.
"They were nice people," Allison said. "Even Craig, despite all his issues, deep down these people were good people."
Metro police said Garber lived with his mother and brother who could not be reached for comment.

Bonnaroo and then what? More events could follow
May 20, 2013 12:33 GMT
MANCHESTER, Tenn. (AP) -- The former farm where the Bonnaroo music festival is held may play host to other events as well.
The partnership that puts on the annual music and arts festival in Manchester has steadily upgraded the site, adding a dozen water wells and permanent electrical power.
Festival partner Rick Farman told The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/14nuEF5 ) his group is in active discussion with a lot of groups. The Great American Mud Run will be held at the site on July 27 and is expected to draw more than 5,000 participants.
Coffee County Mayor David Pennington said he's curious to see where such a plan could go, saying it could have a huge impact.
This year's Bonnaroo will be held June 13-16. Paul McCartney heads a long list if acts.
