Ohio shooter’s parents apologise for ‘insensitive’ obituary

The family of the Dayton, Ohio shooter have apologised for releasing an “insensitive” obituary that fails to mention the “terrible tragedy”.

Connor Betts, 24, was a “funny, articulate and intelligent man”, the tribute said.

The killing of his sister and eight others in a shooting on 4 August was not acknowledged.

Conner & Koch, a funeral home in Bellbrooke, Ohio, posted the obituary to its website on Tuesday.

But after details of the remembrance were reported by US media, it was removed a day later.

In its place, an apology from the gunman’s parents, Stephen and Moira Betts, has been posted.
