A man who rammed a dump truck into the gates of the FBI building in Pittsburgh was looking for emotional help, family and neighbors told WTAE.
“He’s been crying out for help, a lot of help, and he asked me if I could find someone for him to talk to,” a neighbor said of Thomas Richard Ross.
The neighbor added that Ross was taking painkillers after he had fallen off a roof more than 20 years ago.
“I don’t know what kind of pills they gave him but he got addicted and he’s still in pain,” the neighbor said, adding Ross had been paranoid the government was after him.
His son, Tommy Jr., also said his father had problems with drugs.
