Report reveals details about couple's motivation in alleged killing spree

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A new report reveals that Holly Grigsby, who court documents say admitted to killing four people in a West Coast murder spree, is not sorry for her actions.

In the report from the Appeal Democrat newspaper, Grigsby said she sees her actions as a sacrifice for the greater good of racial preservation.

She talked about a plan to kidnap her son and kill her estranged husband, who had not seen any of her statements made in that article until Friday afternoon.

FOX 12 also learned that Grigsby stopped by his home before she and Dave Pedersen continued on their alleged crime spree.

"I truly think she should shut her mouth and just quit trying to stir the pot," said Dan Larson,  after reading what Holly Ann Grigsby told the Appeal-Democrat newspaper in Yuba County, CA.

"So I think in her head she decided to do something half way honorable," said Larson.

In the Appeal Democrat report, Grigsby says she and David Pedersen were trying to restore the white culture and she hopes their actions will ignite others to follow.

In the jailhouse interview, she said, "I see our race being wiped out and that we need to take direct action or we will be dead."

Grigsby also talked about being worried for her 2 1/2-year-old son, saying, "It was my plan to go back and kidnap my son and take care of Dan, but I didn't get to do that."

Larson responded to that comment by saying, "It just really blows me away that she's going there. Because she did stop by the house. Her and I, and Danny in the front room, went upstairs to our bedroom and she had plenty opportunity to take care of me as she puts it."

Larson says Grigsby made that visit to his home before he knew she was wanted in Washington. 

He says she was in a rush and came over for one thing.

"He (Pedersen) didn't come in; she came in to get some of her clothes. I just asked her, are you going to stay to visit your son, and she said no, got to go, got to go," said Larson. "She chose some guy over her own son. Personally you should have stayed home and took care of your son if you were that worried about him."

It was after that visit that, it appears, the couple came into contact with Cody Myers out along the Oregon coast.

In that newspaper article, Grigsby said they didn't know if Myers was Jewish before they killed him but once they had his wallet they hoped there was a reason he deserved to die.   

"It's unfortunate he was a white man, but it was to facilitate further action. In every war, there are going to be civilian casualties, and he was one of them," is what Grigsby told the Appeal-Democrat.

Larson believes his estranged wife is confused.

"She's not fighting no war. I think she chose to commit suicide in a very warped way," said Larson. "You know she's putting everybody through hell. So why doesn't she quietly go to her own hell."
