Thanks for the continuing information...sad as it is!
It no longer is making the news here in Virginia.
This was one sick guy. I wonder how he managed for the years since he completed his prison term...something must have set him off again.
Spengler's mother died a couple of months ago and she left her money to the West Webster Fireman's Association:

Spengler lured firefighters by setting his car and house on fire, while he layed in ambush.
BTW, sounds like he got his guns via a neighbor and her daughter:
Ex-Neighbor Helped Shooter Get Guns: Report
ROCHESTER NEWSPAPER SAYS AT LEAST ONE ARREST EXPECTED SOON
By John Johnson, Newser Staff
(NEWSER) The man who killed two firefighters in an ambush was a convicted murderer, so how did he get the arsenal to pull off his plan? The Democrat and Chronicle of Rochester may have the answer: A woman who used to be his neighbor and her daughter helped Spengler get the guns, though it's not clear when. Spengler apparently said so in his note to police, sources tell the newspaper. Expect one or both women to be arrested soon. More coverage here, including autopsy results showing Spengler killed himself and was not shot by police.
U.S. Attorney says Dawn Nguyen was with William Spengler in June 1010 when she purchased a Bushmaster .223 and Mossberg .12 gauge shotgun at Gander Mountain in Henrietta. She's charged with lying to the store, saying she would own the guns. She faces both state and federal charges of falsifying records. Could face more charges. Federal conviction carries maximum of 10 years, $250k fine. Nguyen is a former neighbor of Spengler.
The funeral for Lt. Mike Chiapperini is at noon. Live video of the service will be available at link below.
