He went on to say, “He isn't a danger to society, I don't even know if he even attacked Mr. Pelosi. For all that we know, he was some sort of sex slave, as Elon Musk pointed out.”
DePape, who is 42, is facing charges that include attempted murder, first-degree residential burglary, elder abuse, assault with a deadly weapon, and threatening family members of public officials.
DePape’s son, who is 19, defended him saying “He often told us he was raised in an abusive home and would be physically abused by his grandparents,”
He said that DePape swam in the ocean all day long to avoid his grandparents.
Gonzalez said that David told them that “His grandmother dumped a pot of boiling water on him. A piece of his clothing melted into his flesh and scarred him for life.”
Gonzalez also that DePape was bullied and had a difficulty time making friends. “He is a loner,” he said.
Gonzalez said that he was shocked when he heard about the crime his father had allegedly committed. “That's not the type of person he is,” he said.
“I'm surprised about the whole thing. There is still a lot of info that hasn't been given to the public. I have no clue what happened or how it happened. There are more questions than answers right now. Do we even know what really happened?”
