    Paramedics and the man Christopher Vaughn flagged down describe him as emotionless and more worried about his clothing than his family.

    Court records show a search of a public storage unit registered to Vaughn turned up tents, a sleeping bag, pots, pans and other camping essentials, but little was found in his home.

    Vaughn claims his wife is to blame for the 2007 shootings that occurred as the family traveled to a waterpark. He says she killed 12-year-old Abigayle, 11-year-old Cassandra and 8-year-old Blake, and then herself.
