Jake Davison was a ‘ticking timebomb’ who became addicted to bodybuilding steroids and once attacked a pregnant woman, it was claimed yesterday.
The 22-year-old virgin, a self-confessed ‘involuntary celibate’, had an obsession with guns and violent computer games from the age of five, according to reports.
In 2016, he was let go by police despite hitting Scott Hobbs 15 times and punching his girlfriend Sherrie – sending her falling on to her stomach and fearing she could lose her unborn baby.

Nineteen-stone Davison was not arrested and received a warning over the assault on the strangers outside a Tesco in Plymouth.
Mr Hobbs, 25, told The Sunday Mirror: ‘The police didn’t seem to take it very seriously. They said he was ‘nothing to worry about’.’
Police gave Mr Hobbs a victims of crime leaflet and he eventually moved house, he said.
In another incident last September, six-foot Davison is said to have repeatedly punched a 16-year-old in the face.

A friend of the boy’s mother, Caroline Reilly, 38, claimed that when a girl tried to stop him, he spat in her face and told her ‘I f****** hate women’.
A friend of Davison said he had been playing violent computer games such as Grand Theft Auto since he was five, and claimed he was obsessed with online pornography by 11.
Meanwhile, a member of a gym where Davison went said drug abuse may have contributed to a deterioration in his mental state.
He claimed the killer had been taking both amphetamines and bodybuilding anabolic steroids since at least December.
He told The Sun: ‘He was popping lots of pills… he became edgy, aggressive – and was basically a ticking timebomb.’
