Mother Of Damageplan Gig Killer Makes Shock Confession

The mother of ex-PANTERA guitarist 'DIMEBAG' DARRELL ABBOTT's murderer has confessed she bought her paranoid schizophrenic son NATHAN GALE the gun he used to kill four people.

Ex-marine Gale was shot dead by police after he gunned down Abbott and three others at the star's gig with his band DAMAGEPLAN in a Columbus, Ohio, nightclub last week (08DEC04).

And Gale's mother MARY CLARK has told Columbus TV station NBC 4 she gave her son the weapon as a Christmas present to reward his passionate struggle against the mental disorder.

She admits, "When he came home for Christmas the year he was in service, I was proud of that man for cleaning up his life the way he did. And I bought him that gun. I'll never, never be able to live that part down.

"And I still don't understand the whole thing, but he came home with his medications, and I don't know if he took them or not. I don't know if he was afraid to, or ashamed to or didn't believe it himself.

"I have such remorse for those families, and I am so sorry that they are losing their loved ones."
