Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said Ian David Long lived with Colleen, adding that it had been her car that he drove to the Thousand Oaks nightclub.
According to one of Mrs. Long’s neighbors, following an incident in April 2018; when they heard loud crashes and police had to intervene, Colleen said she was terrified he was going to harm himself or others.
On that occasion, Ian was acting ‘irrationally’ and was ‘irate’ so police called in their mental health specialist but they cleared him, deciding against having him committed.
