Social worker testifies Bissonnette idolized serial killers and wanted to make splash of his own

The man who murdered six Muslim men in Quebec City last year told a social worker several months after the killings that he wished there had been more victims.

In a report tabled by the Crown yesterday, social worker Guylaine Cayouette said Alexandre Bissonnette told her he had idolized serial killers since his adolescence and wanted to make a splash of his own.

The report was entered as evidence during sentencing arguments for Bissonnette, who pleaded guilty last month to six charges of first-degree murder and six of attempted murder in the shooting.

Also yesterday, a report about Bissonnette's internet search history on his laptop indicated he visited websites about guns, U-S President Donald Trump, feminism, Islam and I-SIL in the weeks before the murders.

An RCMP report said Bissonnette visited the mosque's website 12 times on the day of the killings.
