Elliot Rodger manifesto: Monette Moio 'devastated' at being named as a ‘bully’ by Isla Vista killer

The British-born killer accused former classmate of teasing and ridiculing him

The father of a woman who was named in gunman Elliot Rodger's manifesto has said his daughter is "devastated" after discovering he claimed she had bullied him in the document he penned ahead of his killing spree.

British-born Rodger, 22, killed six people in Isla Vista, California, in a knife and gun rampage on Friday after emailing a lengthy manifesto detailing his plans to some 30 people including his mother, father and former teachers.

The 141-page document also detailed how Rodger planned to kill his stepmother and six-year-old brother as part of his 'Day of Retribution’, who he feared would grow up to be more popular with women than he was.

"It will be a hard thing to do, because I had really bonded with my little brother in the last year, and he respected and looked up to me,” Rodger, who had Asperger's syndrome wrote. "But I would have to do it. If I can't live a pleasurable life, then neither will he! I will not let him put my legacy to shame."

In the essay, Rodger described his anger at the women he believed kept him a virgin his whole life and his vow for revenge against the men they chose instead of him.

The document listed one woman, Monette Moio, who Rodgers described as an “evil b****” and alleged teased and ridiculed him.

“I hated her so much, and I will never forget her,” Rodger wrote. “I started to hate all girls because of this. I saw them as mean, cruel and heartless creatures that took pleasure from my suffering.”

Ms Moio’s father said his daughter was devastated at being mentioned in the manifesto, which Rodger titled: My Twisted World: the Story of Elliot Rodger.

“She was ten years old for God's sake - she can barely remember the guy,” John Moio told the Mail Online. "He's a sociopath. She hasn't seen him since school.

“She's devastated over the whole thing. It's like she's being implicated in this terrible tragedy for something she hasn't done and can't remember.”

“How is a ten-year-old girl going to bully a 12-year-old boy?” he asked. “My daughter was not a bully, she's one of the sweetest people you could ever meet.”

It was revealed on Monday that Rodger’s parents were trying to stop their son after receiving the manifesto minutes before he began his killing spree. They heard the news of his bloody rampage on the radio as they were racing to Santa Barbara.

The first three victims killed in the spree on Friday night were stabbed in Rodger's own apartment.

They were UCSB students Cheng Yuan Hong, 20, 19-year-old George Chen and Weihan Wang, 20, the Santa Barbara sheriff's department said.

Mr Hong and Mr Chen were Rodger's room-mates, while Mr Wang was visiting for the evening.

Sorority sisters Katherine Cooper, 22, and Veronika Weiss, 19, were shot outside the nearby Alpha Phi sorority house. The sixth victim, Christopher Michael-Martinez, 20, was shot at a nearby delicatessen.

Rodger was found dead in his black BMW with a gunshot wound and three 9mm semi-automatic guns and more than 400 rounds of unused ammunition.

Students at the University of California at Santa Barbara, where Rodgers was also studying, will observe a day of mourning for the victims today.
