Every person who tries to explain motive comes up with something different. Perhaps we will never understand the mind and motive of Ronald Gene Simmons. It's plain to see he had a plan and executed it like a military mission.
Simmons was not a crazed killer running around killing anyone who stuck their head up. He had specific targets, then he was finished. There's no doubt he knew what he was doing.
What I enjoy about Ryan's work is that while it remains a third person narrative, we are provided with the antagonists point of view (but my interpretation of writing would actually be Sheila, his daughter). When it comes to true crime, I am almost always able to stomach it and in today's day, I am no loner really shocked. This one however made me sick to my stomach. I will never understand how a man can father a child and then in turn look upon that child as they grow to be his sexual partner. Then to be denied by her being the cause to murder his whole family and those he felt had disrespected him in some way, there is just no words to describe what a horrible human being he was and to plan and execute the murder of his entire family on Christmas and they way he chose to do so. He did receive the death penalty but there is part of me that would had preferred that he received some of the torture he bestowed upon his wife, children and grandchildren.
This story truly disturbed me and while Ryan reminds us that his psychopathy began as a toddler with the death of his father, I choose to remember that he was evaluated by a psychiatric doctor that essentially said that he knew the difference between life and death, basically right and wrong and knew exactly what he was doing at every moment when he executed his evil plan. Ronald Gene Simmons and his murders will be forever burned into my memory.
