HIGHLAND PARK SHOOTER: TRANSGENDER SERIAL KILLER?
THE alleged Highland Park mass shooter "wore women's clothes at least once in the past" before it emerged that he fled the July 4 massacre wearing a wig, The Sun can exclusively reveal.
Paul Crimo recalled seeing his nephew, Robert E. Crimo III, dressed in girl's clothing about a year before the 22-year-old allegedly fired 70 shots into a crowded parade - but he didn't understand why.
Paul said he didn't know why Robert dressed as a woman and still doesn't understand why he would open fire on a crowd of innocent bystanders.

Highland Park shooting suspect Robert Crimo wore women's clothing
The shooter who allegedly opened fire on the Highland Park Fourth of July parade was dressed in women's clothing to disguise himself and aid his escape - then ran home to his mother, police said Tuesday.
Robert E. "Bobby" Crimo III, 21, is accused of killing seven innocent parade-goers and injuring more than 40 others after he allegedly climbed onto the roof of a business in the wealthy Chicago suburb on Monday and fired off 70 rounds from a high-powered AR-15-style rifle.
He then wrapped the legally purchased weapon in a red blanket and ditched it behind the building so he could blend in with the crowd as he fled during the chaos, authorities said.
"Crimo was dressed in women's clothing and investigators do believe he did this to conceal his facial tattoos and his identity," Lake County Major Crime Task Force spokesman Christopher Covelli told a news briefing. "He was seen on video camera in women's clothing."
