She hasn’t spoken to her son in years but Wade Michael Page’s stepmother claims he was a good boy.”He was such a precious little boy, that’s all I can say, he was very fun-loving, typical little boy,” Laura Lynn told The Daily Mail. “He was just a very soft spoken, gentle young man.”

Laura Lynn, identified only by her first names, said she has had “no contact” with her stepson since divorcing his father. However, she was shocked to hear what he had done.

Page opened fire on a Sikh temple near Milwaukee on Sunday, killing six before dying in a shootout with police.

When asked if she thought her stepson’s stint in the Army changed him, all Laura Lynn could say was she had not spoken to him in 12 years.

“I just found out this morning when another newspaper called me,” she told The Daily Mail. “I am so sorry.”
