Lonliest Blogger

George Sodini, age 48, lived in Bridgeville, Pennsylvania. He worked in the finance department of a law firm. He had a web page and posted blogs. He wrote about how for many years he was rejected by women.

He was anti social and a loner. His web page described him as an unhappy loner. He was never married. He even listed his “date of death” as August 4, 2009.

He wrote that he never had a girl friend since 1984. Never went on a date since May 2008. The last time he had sex was 19 years ago.

"Women just don't like me. There are 30 million desirable women in the US (my estimate) and I cannot find one," he wrote. The page ended with the words "Death Lives”.

Last night (Tuesday) he entered a fitness center filled with women. He entered a “Latin impact” dance aerobic class and started shooting at random. Three women were killed and 9 people injured. He then shot himself and committed suicide.

On one of his entries he said: "The biggest problem of all is not having relationships or friends, but not being able to achieve and acquire what I desire in those or many other areas. Everything stays the same regardless of the effort I put in. If I had control over my life then I would be happier. But for about the past 30 years, I have not.”

On August 3 he wrote: "I took off today, Monday, and tomorrow to practice my routine and make sure it is well polished. I need to work out every detail, there is only one shot. Also I need to be completely immersed into something before I can be successful. I haven't had a drink since Friday about 2:30. Total effort needed. Tomorrow is the big day.

After years of hoping women would take notice of him, he finally got the attention he wanted.

He was a loner and a psychopath.


  1. ok this was it scary but what a story it is true but first time heard it.

  2. Thanks for your comments Shilpa. Very sad. But it is true.

  3. Scary!!!

    Loneliness can turn human into a beast!

  4. Thanks Insignia for your comments. You are absolutely right that loneliness can turn into being a worst person

  5. Actually everyone loves attention..n for him he never got what he wanted n the end result frustrated, n mental disorder....u hav diff types of ppl in the society we live in...some like him really dangerous!!!

  6. I feel sad about those three innocent women who died :(
    If he was so lonely and frustrated, he should have killed himself, but who gave him the right to take other people's lives? That's very inhuman:(
    I too get scared of loneliness sometimes, but thankfully I have friends to talk to :)....

  7. Thanks for your comments Nazish. He was a frustrated psychopath.

  8. Thanks for your comments Varsha. Three innocent lives were take away because of a maniac.

  9. oh where did this happen? this is so sad :-( and scary :-(

  10. Thanks for your comments. Welcome back to my blog. Yes, it is very scary. This happened in Bridgeville, Pennsylvania.

  11. This is truly a sad story.
    Why is it that whenever we read stories like this or in Columbine, it's always a man (or group of men)
    who's lonely, angry, and releasing their frustrations by smoking innocent people with a GAT!
    Women will never turn to violence if they are deeply upset or want to prove a point.

    and Lynette Squeaky Fromme

  12. Thanks for your comments Sahel. You murdered your boyfriend and killed yourself. How is life in hell?

    Thanks for your comments Lynette. You got life imprisonment for attempting to assasinate President Gerald Ford in 1975. Oh I see, you are getting bolder because you are scheduled to be released next week, August 16, 2009.

  13. hii

    some pple are psychopaths by the very birth....i know such a damned guy..he was in my school, he always passed most lewd comments and was visibly happy if someone would get hurt or was unwell. he would bark like a dog the whole day and fight without reason..girls avoided him , and thats what made him gawad! I swear that guy was a psychopath..

  14. Thanks for your comment AS. Yes, there are psychopaths every where. I hope this boy in your school did not do any permanent damage to any one.

  15. oww! That was sad. But I wonder why couldn't make himself more likable and social? Not all of us are blessed with good looks or a good sense of humor that attracts the opposite sex like bees.
    perhaps he had been shunned since childhood, which made him lose all respect and hope from humanity!

  16. Thanks for your comment Meira. And, welcome to my blog. You are right. I always wonder why people like him do not try to be likable and social.

  17. Poignant read.
    Conversely (and in an attempt to lighten things)makes u wonder about the extent of the stupidity of the human race! He should have just run out naked in public!! that too could have caught enough attention!!

  18. Point well said P. And, welcome to my blog.
