I guess that many female readers would call this guy a heart-throb.
More importantly, however, Kevin Dahlgren (*1992) of Palo Alto is a mass killer who has murdered a Czech family of four in Brno, the second largest country in Czechia and the capital of Moravia (130 miles southeast of Prague).
A San Francisco Chronicle blog explains that he had some identity crisis and had to leave his family. The family hoped that his psychological state would improve overseas.
So he went to Czechia to teach English. Unfortunately, a family of four – the Harok family (my research using publicly available information only) – had to pay with their lives for the treatment of this guy. A mother (who is a teacher), a father, and two sons. The father (Martin Harok) and one of the two sons (Filip Harok – all the names are my research) were members of the "Ukulele Orchestra jako Brno" ("jako" means "as" or "as big as", in this case, and "jako Brno" is being used by all Czechs for something that is really big, almost like the City of Brno; it's a pun because these guys were from Brno; ukulele is a primitive musical instrument).
He has used several weapons (mainly knives) to kill the four people in their house (a photo gallery with the house; go to Google Maps: Brno-Ivanovice, Zatloukal's Street). Finally, he wanted to mask his acts – to make them look as an unlucky accident – so he put the house on fire, too. It's likely that police has a detailed documentation and witnesses for these events. After all, the four bodies were found on a pile in the garage by the family's neighbor.
It happened less than two days ago, on Wednesday night (Czech time). The guy managed to get to Vienna in some way and flew to Washington D.C. where he was caught an hour ago, with the help of the Austrian police and an FBI agent.
Unless I am confusing California with Chechnya – they sound similar, perhaps they are the same thing – I must ask: Why is California doing such things to us? [Just to be sure, this paragraph is a parody of the statements about Czechia after two Chechens terrorized the Boston Marathon. Nothing is meant seriously in this paragraph and I don't believe in the collective guilt linked to individual murders. It's annoying that a reader made it necessary for me to spoil this paragraph by this down-to-earth explanation.]
BTW California is going to ban fires. Maybe they should try to ban murders first.
The band "Ukulele Orchestra jako Brno" also has a YouTube channel with nine almost unknown videos. The first one, which is one year old, has collected about 5,000 visits and is the most visited one:
Fair music, somewhat amateurish, I would say. Some musicians from the video above are no longer alive, I think. Sad. The message is that you should better not attempt to learn English if you want to keep your chances to survive. [Spoilers: this is a joke, too.]
While the criminal only spoke English, his family actually had some Czech roots (links to Brno); Dahlgren is a name of Swedish origin, however. It's even claimed by ABC News etc. that he was a rather close relative of the murdered family. He was offering to teach English for $10 per hour on his Facebook profile (he joined Facebook less than 3 weeks ago!).
Most Czechs apparently want him to be tried in the U.S. because they believe that he could earn a harsher punishment in that way. For a murder of four, it's likely he would get a life in prison in the Czech Republic but speculations suggest that 15 years could be the final verdict, too.
It's being reported that Kevin Dahlgren despised the ugly and chaotic Western world. Not sure why he went to Czechia because we're a part of the ugly and chaotic Western world again and the houses (see the Google Maps links higher) are no worse than many houses in the U.S.
