A long smoldering grudge against the Catholic church stemming from how he was treated when the church granted he and his wife an annulment might have triggered the bloody ramage at Conception Abbey Monday. Sergeant Sheldon Lyon with the State Highway Patrol says authorities found little when they searched the car and apartment of Lloyd Jeffress.Family members told them about his anger after the divorce.

Jeffress shot two monks to death and wounded two others at Conception Abbey Monday morning before he shot and killed himself.
