Ethan Crumbley’s dad's ex-lover calls him a ‘piece of s**t’ and his wife ‘a monster’
'I hope they get the maximum, honestly, all of them. They deserve it,' Michelle Cobb said
Update: James and Jennifer Crumbley, were located and arrested early Saturday, December 4, in Detroit, a little more than two hours after a citizen saw their vehicle and called police.
A woman who is reportedly the ex-girlfriend of Ethan Crumbley’s father has slammed him and his wife after the deadly shooting in Oxford High School in Oakland County on November 30. Parents of the 15-year-old accused -- James and Jennifer Crumbley -- have been charged with four counts of involuntary manslaughter for the murders their son carried out at his school. But the pair is apparently on the run.
Now, Michelle Cobb, who shares 18-year-old son Eli with James, said of him: “He's a piece of s**t. He really is.” Cobb claimed that James left her and her son as well as another woman who has a daughter with him for Jennifer. She said that the issue was never the relationships between the adults, but was James and Jennifer’s always complaining nature. She stated that the couple disliked her because they had to pay child support for Eli. “I cried the moment he turned 18 because, I thought, all of this hell is over as far as dealing with my son's father,” Cobb added.

About Jennifer, the ex-girlfriend said, “Jennifer was a monster. She could do no wrong and she was right about everything. I mean, this is exactly the kind of attitude she has. Like, she, literally, thought she was better than everyone.” According to reports, James and Jennifer have been declared wanted fugitives after they withdrew $4,000 from an ATM and vanished. They were supposed to surrender themselves at four in the evening of Friday, December 3, after charges were announced against them. A $10,000 reward has been announced for the person (s) giving information related to the pair by the US Marshals.
Cobb said of the duo, “I hope they get the maximum, honestly, all of them. They deserve it. They need to be held accountable for what their child did. They need to have a reality check.” Ethan has been arrested without bond and charged as an adult. His charges include -- murder, attempted murder, and terrorism -- in connection to the November 30 tragedy that claimed the lives of four people and injured seven.
Cobb also claimed that she’s not surprised that the Crumbley pair purchased a gun for their teenage son. “They pretty much gave him whatever he wanted. Why would you let a 15-year-old have access, especially knowing that just a few days prior that he was having problems at school?” she remarked.
This comes after Cobb’s son spoke to DailyMail.com about his half-brother. He said, “The Ethan I knew was just a smart boy who just seemed like an average kid. There was nothing that ever stood out to me. He'd never get suspended from school, or detention. He didn't suffer depression or anything like that. He woke up happy, went to school, came home, and played games.”
Eli also told Daily Mail: “As far as I knew, Ethan was always good. He was just quiet, kept to himself, kept his circle of friends small. He was a clean kid, didn't smoke or do drugs, nothing. And he got good grades. He wanted to be an archeologist. When I was living there, nothing seemed off. We'd just walk to the bus stop in the morning, go to school, come home, maybe play some football outside or basketball. We'd just chill, wouldn't do much. I didn't know he had a gun till after this happened. It's still hard to believe. I can't believe it.”
