As the police left, a wave of relief passed over Elliot. In just a few weeks, his day of retribution would arrive.

"Well, this is my last video, it has all come to this…the day in which I will have my revenge against humanity, against all of you." From Elliot Rodger's last video.

On that day in May, that Memorial Day weekend, Elliot Rodger would kill seven people including himself, wounding 13 others.

"I don't understand it. I can't wrap my head around it," said Peter Rodger. "It will haunt me, haunt me for the rest of my life."

Elliot's mother has declined to discuss her son or the tragedy of last May.

"I feel the world's attention should be focused on the victims' loved ones and remembering the beautiful lives that were so tragically lost," she said in a statement to ABC News.
