Just from his mug shot I will make a leap and suggest drugs were involved.

I wondered if it was for money. But he did look awful.

A 27 year old killed his parents and housekeeper. They were members. I wonder what happened with this young man that he could do this. Super sad.

This is a tragic story and it'll be interesting to see what other details come out.  

Here's his page on Mormon.org (Camden Nicholson):

This could be from a lack of sleep from shock and a long interrogation, but he looks so different from the sweet pictures of him younger, it seems so obvious something major must have changed for him.  Most of us know what drugs/alcohol can do and how common they are in murders and domestic violence, so for me it is a reasonable assumption especially since most forms of mental illness, if there is any danger it is much more common to be self injury.

According to the article he had taken some drugs and looks like money was also an issue. https://www.latimes.com/socal/daily-pilot/news/tn-dpt-me-nicholson-20190221-story.html

Looks like mental illness was at the heart of this tragic story. From what the PI hired by the parents said, his mental problems became apparent while he was on his mission.

In a statement to Youssef, Camden’s mom said her son was diagnosed with Aspergers and was ordering steroids on the internet.

She said his eight-year battle with mental illness and depression began when he returned home from a Mormon missionary trip.

My son Camden left on an LDS mission to Jacksonville, Florida Spanish-speaking mission in March 2010, at the age of 19-years-old. Before Camden left on his mission, he was one of the most kindest, gentle, easy-going, and functioning young men. After nine months is in the mission field, the doctor called stating, ‘Camden wanted to commit suicide.’

 

Sometimes mental illness becomes apparent after significant stress, so it's not surprising that symptoms he had managed to control might come to the fore on a mission. And, no, I am not 'blaming' the missionary experience, just noting that this kid obviously had some underlying problems.
