Police on Thursday identified the gunman who killed 14 women, wounded 13 other people and killed himself Wednesday as Marc Lepine, an unemployed 25-year-old who "had few friends of the female gender" and who once aspired to study at the engineering school where he went on his murderous spree. The police, who are still interviewing Lepine's relatives and a male roommate in an attempt to learn why the gunman selected only female victims, also said the young man was obsessed with war movies.

The star's companion is also huge, with a mass 84 times that of the sun. The pair orbit each other every 3.77 days, the team from the University of Montreal reported Wednesday at a meeting of the Canadian Astronomical Society.
