More Emails Surface In Case Of UCI Professor Accused Of Arson

NEWPORT BEACH (AP) — A university professor who wrote emails outlining a plan to attack a California high school wrote an additional email that described his attempts to burn the high school and the home of the assistant principal who disciplined his son shortly before the teen committed suicide.

The Orange County Register reports the email was written about a week before University of California, Irvine professor Rainer Reinscheid was arrested on suspicion of setting fires at his late son’s high school, the assistant principal’s house and the park where the teen’s body was found.

Prosecutors previously filed with the court three emails that they say detail Reinscheid’s plans for a mass murder at University High in revenge for his son’s death.

Defense attorney Ron Cordova and prosecutor Andrew Katz didn’t return calls seeking comment.
