Daughter of Michigan Shooter Says QAnon Conspiracy Drove Her Father to Violence

Rebecca Lanis, the daughter of Igor Lanis, who killed his wife and seriously injured his other daughter with a shotgun before being killed by police in suburban Detroit, says that her father suffered mental health challenges that she pinned on QAnon conspiracy theories and extremist ideologies he picked up online, reports NBC News. While the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office said it still wasn’t clear what might have touched off the rampage, Lanis said her father’s mental health worsened after he embraced conspiracies like QAnon, which, among other things, claims that a cabal of pedophiles and criminals has infiltrated the U.S. government in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s election defeat.
