Police indicate he once spent time in the hospital after “exhibiting paranoid and delusional behavior.”
Bonang showed up at the home of Laurie Melchionda dressed as a UPS delivery driver Wednesday morning and shot her multiple times with a rifle that he had hidden in a brown cardboard box.
Bonang shot Melchionda in the entryway of her front door after ringing the bell, prosecutors said. She was reportedly shot multiple times in the back and head.
A check of Bonang’s Facebook page revealed that he kept a list of people who were not welcome in his life, including residents of New York’s Lower East Side, various towns and cities and the entire state of North Caroline.
