The families of two of the Seal Beach massacre victims are filing suit against the shooter, Scott Dekraai, who opened fire on Salon Meritage on October 12, killing eight people.

One of the eight killed was Christy Lynn Wilson, a 47-year-old Lakewood resident. Wilson’s family filed a wrongful death suit in Orange County Superior Court against Dekraai on Monday. Wilson’s husband – Paul Wilson – and the couple’s three children are listed as plaintiffs, and the suit seeks unspecified damages, including burial and funeral expenses.
The complaint states, “As a direct and proximate result of the negligence, carelessness, recklessness, wantonness and unlawfulness of (Dekraai) … (Wilson’s husband and children) have been deprived of the care, society and comfort of (the victim),” reports Press-Telegram.

Dekraai allegedly slayed the victims in an act of revenge against his ex-wife, Michelle Fournier. The two were involved in a heated custody battle over their 8-year-old son, Dominic. Fournier worked at the salon in Seal Beach.
Fournier’s parents – Joseph and Geraldine Burke – reportedly filed the first lawsuit against Dekraai on Friday. The suit names Dominic as a plaintiff and seeks unspecified damages.

Dekraai has been charged with eight counts of murder and one count of attempted murder. Hattie Stretz, the 72-year-old mother of one of the victims, was wounded in the attack but survived her injuries. She is the sole gunshot survivor of the brutal slayings.

Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas will seek the death penalty for Dekraai.
