The Harvard-educated professor had been denied tenure and opened fire on her colleagues. New York Times reporter, Shaila Dewan gives us the details on the strange twists behind the violent story.

News broke over the weekend that Bishop had also shot her teenage brother in 1986, but she was not charged with a crime.  Also, on Sunday, The Boston Globe reported that Bishop and her husband were questioned in the 1993 case of the attempted mail bombing of a Harvard Medical School professor.
