However, it may not be directly linked to benzo withdrawal.

Ricardo Barbaro is a member of the Barbaro crime family and brother of Sydney underworld boss Pasquale Timothy Barbaro, 35, who was gunned down in 2016.
 
His grandfather Peter Pasquale Barbaro was also gunned down in Brisbane in 1990 while his cousin Pasquale Barbaro was killed alongside underworld figure Jason Moran while watching a children's football training session in 2003.
 
Mr Barbaro's uncle -  another Pasquale Barbaro, from Griffith, NSW- was the kingpin in the world's biggest ecstasy bust in 2007. He was sentenced in Melbourne to 30 years in jail in 2012.

yeah this makes sense, drug withdrawal definitely leads to both irrational and delusional thinking and homicidal rage 

Was put on SSRIS at age 18, came off at 20 due to side effects, have been in withdrawal ever since, am 27 now. 7 years of protracted withdrawal. have not been able to work. I didnt taper, i basically came off cold turkey in less than a month....no one informed me of anything, including protracted withdrawal . my symptoms include absolutely everything you can imagine, you name it, i have it
