    Three weeks before he killed six college students at UCSB, Elliot Rodger was visited by law officials who knew about his disturbing videos posted online. The new disclosure from the Santa Barbara County sheriff’s department followed an earlier claim that deputies had been unaware of any video when they checked on him on April 30.
