The sex-deprived loon who killed three women at a Pittsburgh gym bought gun accessories from the same online weapons dealer that sold firearms used in two other massacres.
George Sodini, 48, bought a Glock Magloader and a Glock Factory Magazine from TGSCOM Inc. in April 2008, the company confirmed Friday.
The Wisonsin-based online shop also sold weapons to Sueng-Hui Cho, who gunned down 32 people at Virginia Tech in 2007, and Steven Kazmierczak, who killed five students at Northern Illinois University in 2008.
It remained unclear if Sodini used the accessories during Tuesday's rampage.
TGSCOM President Eric Thompson said he was saddened by the loss of life in the Pittsburgh slayings but defended his company.
"This tragedy underscores the need for people to protect themselves and not rely only on police," Thompson told the Green Bay Press-Gazette.
"There is evil all around us and we must be able to handle it."
Sodini, who obsessively documented his inability to attract women, killed himself after opening fire inside an aerobics class, murdering three women and injuring nine others.
