‘NOTHING SEEMED OFF’
Eli, Ethan’s half-brother, said when he was living with his father, stepmom, and brother, “nothing seemed off.”
Although The Daily Mail reported that Eli was not inclined to discuss his family, he said his reasoning for moving back to Florida mostly had to do with his stepmother.
According to The Daily Mail, he only said, “(their relationship) wasn’t as great as it could be” and “moving back to Florida was the best option.”
Eli continuously described Ethan as happy and focused on getting good grades. He said his half-brother didn’t suffer from depression or anything else.
“He woke up happy, went to school, came home, and played games.”
He said he doesn’t know why Ethan carried out the shooting but added that he would like to talk to him, adding, “but I don’t think that’s something that’s going to happen for a while.”
