Elliot Rodger spent five years planning his 'Day of Retribution' during which he intended to murder his six-year-old brother who he had once apparently saved from drowning.

The 'virgin killer', who had never had a girlfriend, wrote in his manifesto that he was jealous because his younger brother had been signed up to act in television commercials.

In his manifesto, My Twisted World, Rodger wrote he had been teased by his "first crush" when he was a boy and it had "wounded me deeply".

Monette Moio (20) now an aspiring model, was vilified by Rodger, pictured, as an "evil bitch" in the document and she is said to be distraught. According to her father, John Moio (75) a Hollywood stuntman, she barely recalls the killer who she met at school when she was 10. He said: "She doesn't even remember this guy. She has always been the most delicate kid. It was just an illusion this kid built in his own mind."

Rodger (22) also described how he would stab in the neck his stepmother Soumaya, an actress. He intended to carry out the killings while his father, Peter Rodger, the assistant director of the 'Hunger Games' film was away on business.

The student said he would murder his brother and stepmother a day before targeting people randomly in the university of Isla Vista, California.

Instead, Rodger stabbed to death his three roommates, then went on a gun rampage around Isla Vista killing three more people and injuring 13 before shooting himself. (© Daily Telegraph, London)
