report, the young man's own family and a social worker who knew him had raised alarms. Tonight here what could those videos reveal? Gio Benitez on that part of the story. Reporter: It appears Elliott Rodger used his youtube channel as a manifesto. My life is so lonely and mundane. Reporter: The videos were posted just this month and many show roger exploring beautiful southern California. A beautiful environment is the darkest hell if you have to experience it all alone. Reporter: Take a look at this. One video has this description. I temporarily took all of my vlogs down due to the alarm it caused with some people in my family.
