THE ex-girlfriend of James Crumbley says he’s a “piece of s**t” and who abandoned her family and also called his wife, Jennifer, a “monster.”
Michelle Cobb says Mr. Crumbley, the father of suspected Oxford school shooter, Ethan Crumbley, left her and the son they share together to move in with Jennifer.

Mr. Crumbley also left behind a daughter he had with another woman in Florida, says Cobb.
“I cried the moment he turned 18 because, I thought, all of this hell is over as far as dealing with my son’s father,” she said.
Cobb blames Mrs. Crumbley for making it difficult for Eli to get closer to his father and half-brother Ethan, calling her a “monster.”
“She could do no wrong and she was right about everything. I mean, this is exactly the kind of attitude she has. Like, she, literally, thought she was better than everyone.”
The Crumbleys have been charged with four counts of involuntary manslaughter after their son allegedly carried out the Oxford High School shooting on Tuesday, taking the lives of four teens.

Cobb said she wouldn’t be surprised if Ethan’s parents bought the semi-automatic handgun as a gift for him.
“They pretty much gave him whatever he wanted,” she said. “Why would you let a 15-year-old have access, especially knowing that just a few days prior he was having problems at school?”
Ethan’s parents took $4,000 from an ATM and disappeared following the news they had been charged. They were arrested in Detroit after failing to meet a 4 pm deadline to surrender.
The Crumbleys face up to 15 years in prison if they’re convicted.
“I hope they get the maximum, honestly, all of them. They deserve it,” said Cobb. “They need to be held accountable for what their child did. They need to have a reality check.”
Ethan Crumbley has been charged as an adult for murder, attempted murder and terrorism. He is being held without bond.
