It's kind of interesting and we have missed completely different picture of the suspect and we had. Just a couple of hours ago what do you do with that. It's a very different picture me at first we thought. Potentially. Domestic dispute have a situation or maybe even workplace violence but once it was determined that she had nothing to do with the company. Then of course the dispute part but now this latest development. That she had this issue we've YouTube over the number of accounts that she had that were. And Ann as she even cited other people that had the same type of problem. So this clearly from what it sounds like if that is the this mean issue she had.
