All of this led to him starting a killing spree. The movie reveals Bruce Wayne and Joker to be half-brothers.
When he is called for an interview by his idol Murray, he says morbid jokes and confesses his murders and when Murray threatens him, he kills him to. He is then arrested and on the way the police car crashes with an ambulance driven by rioters who killed Bruce’s parents. Joker escapes from the police car.
