“I never foresaw a problem. If I had I would have stopped it,” David Webb said, sobbing during an interview with the Associated Press.

“I just can’t believe I lost my wife and son in one day.”

“I wish I had some answers, but I don’t. I waited all my life to retire with my wife, and now I can’t. That’s all I know,” he added.

Joshua Webb was arrested and faces murder and attempted murder charges for the Mother’s Day massacre.
