What is strange is that he wanted a "concealed weapon permit." How does the Watchtower view that? I can see some saying it's for "self-defense", bu how bad could rural Virginia be? Plus, it's just more likely to be used to murder.
Sounds like he was seeing a therapist. The "Friends" are going to blame the pyschologist as quickly as we blame the high control religion.
It sounds like his mother's death and property battle stewed his pot to the breaking point. He was never married, so he was likely very close to his mother. He may have thought that she would never die in this system of things. The property battle, I wonder if it was greed. Why couldn't he share the land with his sister? Greed, disfellowshipping, pride?
Time will answer, or not.
