4 Dead Unstable Cincinnati Shooter’s Mental Health History Investigated

Omar Enrique Santa Perez, 29


Thursday morning, September 6th, Omar Enrique Santa Perez opened fire inside the lobby of a Cincinnati office building where he never worked nor to which had any known connection. The city’s police chief said the gunman’s mental health history is one of several areas they are investigating. Of course with a mental health history we know there were plenty if drugs that come with that. But we only hear “mental health history” rather that “mind altering drug history” even though those drugs are known to produce both murder and suicide.

“The shooter who killed three people in a Cincinnati office high-rise once acted disoriented after being fired four years ago in South Carolina, and he filed a recent lawsuit that a judge in June said “borders on delusional.”



If the gun had not jammed during the shooting and police response had not been so swift it is not known how many more might have lost their lives. Santa Perez was carrying enough ammunition to cause “a bloodbath beyond imagination.”

“The suspect appeared to be upset and disoriented. When I would ask the suspect questions but he would respond with strange answers…mumbled something about the war and the economy, but for the most part talked about that he was upset that he was terminated.” That job was lost back in 2014.

Apparently suffering paranoia he twice filed lawsuits claiming MSNBC was spying on him.

In January he filed suit against NBC Universal and TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation, seeking $5.1 million in damages for emotional distress and “character assassination,” WCPO reported.

A county clerk dismissed the lawsuit with prejudice in June andt he allegations “rambling, difficult to decipher and (bordering) on the delusional,”

He then filed another one claiming he was watching MSNBC when they began broadcasting information about him. He believed they intended to track him down and tap into his phone and electronics. Once again a magistrate judge found his allegations “rambling, difficult to decipher and (bordering) on the delusional.”


So how on earth does anyone miss that much paranoia & delusion over at least a four year period when the two together are known to be precursors to violence & then let it reach a point where four lives are lost?! It is because we have been led to believe that the delusions & paranoia can be drugged out of someone! JUST SAY NO TO DRUGS?!  Or say no to drugs unless you have any mental issues, at which point you then are expected to say yes to as many drugs as possible?!!



The problem lies in the fact that every drug they are giving for these problems increase serotonin. And what do we know about serotonin? Although the hypothesis behind these drugs is that depression, anxiety, etc are all the result of low levels of serotonin when in fact for decades elevating serotonin has been associated with a long list of mental issues, including both psychosis & unjustified fears. So would it not be reasonable to question if this young man was taking drugs that may have been elevating his serotonin?

LSD & PCP mimic serotonin to produce hallucinations as well as leading to a whole host of serious mental issues. Listen to this long list of issues research lists as coming from elevated levels of serotonin as I read those off to the FDA Advisory Committee clear back in 2004….





What so many were not aware of is that an increase in serotonin by an accompanying decrease in one’s ability to metabolize serotonin was long known to produce both impulsive murder and suicide. See this study out of the Southern California:


1996 – Mutant Mice May Hold Key To Human Violence – An Excess Of Serotonin.





REM Sleep Disorder


What the world remains unaware of is the fact is that 86% of those who are diagnosed with the most deadly sleep disorder known as REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) are currently taking antidepressants. REM Sleep Disorder is a condition in which there is no paralysis during sleep thus allowing the patient to act out the dreams or nightmares they are having. Tragically 80% of those going into this sleep disorder hurt themselves or others, including both murder and suicide as a result.

This is possibly the most deadly of all reactions one can have to antidepressants. Even more frightening though is to learn that before the introduction of the SSRI antidepressants RBD was known mainly as a drug withdrawal effect. Thus the chances of going into this dangerous reaction should be expected to increase as one goes into withdrawal. This is why it is so important to avoid as much of the withdrawal effects as possible by tapering off an antidepressant very, very, very slowly.

MIAMI ­ Paul
Michael Merhige, accused of killing four relatives at a Thanksgiving dinner in
Jupiter, had threatened to kill family members before and often refused to take
medication prescribed to treat his longtime mental illness, according to court
records and Merhige’s mother.

In April 2006, during a fight with his
sister at their parents’ house outside Miami, Merhige told the sister “I’m going
to slit your throat,” according to a domestic violence complaint filed by the
sister, Carla Merhige.

He added that “this time I’m not going to go by
myself,” referring to an earlier suicide attempt he had made, according to his
sister’s complaint.

Seeking a restraining order, Carla Merhige wrote that
her brother’s threat to slit her throat was just the latest of many that “occur
on a regular basis since (Merhige) suffers from mental illness but refuses to
take his medication.”

Carla was among the four people killed Thursday in
what police say was a murderous rampage by her 35-year-old brother at their
cousin’s Jupiter home. He is still on the loose and being hunted by law
enforcement officials.

Merhige’s troubled mental history ­ which
included severe depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder ­ dated back to
a nervous breakdown while he was an honors student at the University of Miami,
said his mother, Carole Merhige.

“Everything was perfect until he was
19,” she said in an interview today.

But since graduating, his mental
illness had barred him from holding down a job, and he had an often-violent
relationship with his family, one that his mother characterized as “16 years of

Merhige appeared to have made preparations before Thursday’s
massacre, during which a witness recalled him saying: “I’ve been waiting 20
years to do this.”

Last month, Merhige bought at least two firearms, his
mother said, and last week he asked his parents for his passport, which they had
kept at their home in the Miami area.

Unable to hold down a job, he had
been financially supported by his parents since his mental troubles

Those troubles culminated when gunshots flashed Thursday night at
his cousin’s home on Via Veracruz in Jupiter. Police say Merhige killed Carla
and her twin sister, Lisa Knight, both 33; his aunt, Raymonde Joseph, 76; and
his cousin’s 6-year-old daughter, Makayla Sitton.

A candlelight vigil is
planned for the twin sisters, Carla and Lisa, tonight in Miami.

In recent
years Paul Merhige had become more independent and was living by himself in an
apartment in the Coral Gables area, his mother said.

He was supposed to
be on medication when Thursday’s shooting happened, but she said he had been
self-medicating. She did not know whether he was doing so correctly.

said she hopes her son is captured soon, adding that she has no idea where he
is. When Paul Merhige asked his parents for his passport, she said, he didn’t
mention travel plans.

Most upsetting to her, Carole Merhige said, was the
ease with which he was able to purchase handguns.

“A person with a
history of mental problems should not be able to get a gun,” she said. “This is
such a big country. Why isn’t there a database of mentally ill

She and her husband, who lost two daughters to their troubled
son, do not plan to attend tonight’s vigil.

“We’re devastated,” she said.
“We’re just taking it day by day.”

Paragraph 11 reads: “A doctor in Birmingham prescribed Mr A’Court with anti-depressants on April 27,which he had been taking since April. He did not have a history of mental health problems.”


Flackwell Heath student hanged himself

11:13am Thursday 10th September 2009

By Lawrence Dunhill »

A POPULAR student from Flackwell Heath hanged himself after the break-up with his girlfriend left him severely depressed, an inquest heard.

Alexander A’Court killed himself in the garage of his family home The Beeches, Treadaway Road, on May 25.

Mr A’Court was a pupil at John Hampden Grammar School before going to the University of Birmingham to study Geography.

More than 500 friends have joined a Facebook group dedicated to him, which says “he was a great friend and will be missed by all.”

The identity of Mr A’Court’s ex-girlfriend was not revealed. The inquest was shown a “suicide letter” which Mr A’Court had sent to her, but this it was not read out.

The 20-year-old had been unfaithful to the girlfriend, who ended their relationship on March 15, coroner Richard Hulett told the inquest at Amersham Law Courts yesterday.

His father Stephen A’Court had to cut his son down from the roof of the garage. He told the inquest: “Alex was a long way from his problems in Birmingham, but in this electronic age of Facebook and mobile phones he was never able to separate himself from those problems.”

Mobile phone records show that Mr A’Court telephoned his ex-girlfriend at 1.03pm. It was estimated that he died soon after this.

The inquest heard that Mr A’Court had seemed “positive” that morning and was planning a holiday before sharing some “light-hearted banter” with his brother Sam at around 12.45pm.

Stephen A’Court said he became concerned about his son’s mental health after the break-up of his relationship and encouraged him to seek medical help.

A doctor in Birmingham prescribed Mr A’Court with anti-depressants on April 27, which he had been taking since April. He did not have a history of mental health problems.

Mr A’Court was referred to a senior professor on May 14 but was diagnosed as a “low suicide risk”.

Mr Hulett told the inquest: “The relationship became the be all and end all for Alex. He rapidly deteriorated into depression and severe mood swings.

“It is dreadful and tragic that a 20-year-old with such obvious prospects has chosen to take his life quite suddenly.”

He found that Mr A’Court had taken his own life.

Ashleigh Barton from London wrote on the Facebook page: “You were such a lovely guy and so loved by all. I don’t think it will ever sink in and I’ll never get my head around why. I just hope you’re happier now than you were when you were still here.”

Tom Bowers, who also went to John Hampden Grammar, wrote: “I’ll never forget the way you went out of your way to help me fit in when I first started at Tesco, it meant so much and always will. You were always such a laugh and brilliant at putting a smile on anyone’s face.”

Celexa Pusher

“The haphazard prescribing of these dangerous drugs has got to stop!”


Thank you for your website. I wish more people knew about it. I would like to share a Celexa horror story but would like my e-mail address to remain confidential. My name is Shelley and you may use it.

In the spring of 2001, I had several personal tragedies which included: knee injuries caused by a head on auto collision caused by a drunk driver which totaled my vehicle and the imminent closure of my retail business due to said injuries. I had been going to the same Physician for approximately 8 years but had never really been ill during that time and only saw her for routine check ups. I have no history of mental illness or depression. I always thought that she was a good doctor and very caring person.

I was taken by ambulance from the scene of the accident which occurred on June 30, 2001. I was discharged from the hospital in a wheel chair as I could not walk from the Emergency Room. The following day, my knees swelled to the size of grapefruits and I was bruised head to toe. I could not walk. Several days later I got an appointment with my Primary Care Physician. I had pain in my knees, head (from hitting the steering wheel), and ribs (from the seat belt and airbag). I went to visit my doctor several times during the next couple of weeks for my pain. True, I was depressed but it was due to pain caused by the auto accident. She finally told me that she thought I had Fybromyalga and prescribed Celexa. I was very hesitant and kept telling her it was my knees that hurt and that it wasn’t in my head but decided to try to drugs.

The next week was a nightmare. I developed a rash over my entire body which looked like third degree burns and still have some scars from it to this day. My menstrual cycle was so heavy that I could not leave the house and feared that I would bleed to death. I began to hallucinate and was afraid to leave the house. I tried to contact my Physician when the symptoms began and was finally “allowed” to speak with her. When I advised her of these symptoms she said ,”It wasn’t supposed to that .” She advised me to quit taking the Celexa and to come into her office the next day. When I asked if I should make an appointment she said that it would not be necessary and that she would tell her office staff to let her know I was there to see her.

When I arrived at her office the next day, the Office Manager asked me if I had an appointment and I advised her of the conversation with the doctor from the previous day. She told me to wait and came back with a brown paper bag with my name on it. I was puzzled and looked inside. It was filled with Prozac samples with no explanation or product information whatsoever. That did make me really angry and I decided it was necessary to find another doctor.

The result of this is that I still have continued knee pain as physical therapy was delayed longer that it should have been, I have scars from the Celexa caused rash, I have lost my business and now have very little faith in the medical establishment.

The haphazard prescribing of these dangerous drugs has got to stop! When a Doctor prescribes anti-depressants for physical injuries from an auto accident it endangers patient health and clearly transgresses the Hippocratic Oath. Since the majority of people I speak in the course of daily life (at the grocery store, bank, library, workplace, etc.) are taking some type of anti-depressant, it seems to me that the U.S. in experiencing a huge drug abuse epidemic. Unfortunately, since it is legally prescribed it isn’t drawing as much scrutiny as it should. I hope for a day when these pill pushing for profit Doctors are held accountable for what they are doing to their patient’s lives.
