The Smoking Gun: Mass Media (Kosher Press) Cover-Up of Shooters on Anti-Depressants
Big Pharma: the biggest killer outside of warfare
As usual, the Kosher Press avoids any mention of the fact the vast majority of mass killings in America – with guns or without -have been committed by people taking SSRIs (legally prescribed anti-depressants), who have psychotic reactions to these drugs.
Big Pharma is guilty of these mass killings, but the Kosher Press, whose biggest advertiser is Big Pharma, will never tell you the truth.

America Has Become a Dopeocracy

“For by your sorceries were all nations deceived.” — Rev. 18:23.
Sorceries – from the Greek word, pharmakeia, from which we get our English pharmacy and pharmaceutical.
America, we have a problem. In the wake of the mass killing of students and faculty at Sandy Hook in Newtown CT, there has been yet another media frenzy against the Second Amendment. Many Americans believe that these atrocities are actually being staged by the federal government for the express purpose of creating a national campaign against self-defense, with guns, and the Second Amendment, being the target of this campaign. This article is about the media blackout on the legal drugs that have been instrumental in virtually all of the recent mass killings.
I am getting sick of the same old headlines blaming guns, the same old excuses and the failure of the Mass Media to address the real causes of America’s ongoing shooting spree. The fact is that the Corporate Government Establishment does not want you to know that virtually every famous case of mass killing in the last twenty-five years involves LEGAL drugs.
The Stephen Kazmierczak case at Northern Illinois University was no exception. On Feb. 14, 2008, Kazmierczak entered a lecture hall and shot 25 people. Six of them died. Stephen Kaczmirczak was taking Paxil.
In virtually every case of these mass killings, in which guns were used, the media focus is on the guns. Rarely do reporters mention the psychotropic drugs that are being used by the killers. If they do mention the prescription drug angle, it is only as an afterthought or a sidelight. The question is always: “How do these people get guns?” instead of “What is the connection between drugs and killing?” Like the Virginia Tech shootings, which also involved a negative reaction to prescription drugs, Northern Illinois University was victimized by Pharmakeia, the Government-Pharmaceutical-Medical Complex, the tyrant that nobody talks about.
Aldous Huxley, in his book, Brave New World, prophetically described a dark society which is perpetually drugged by its own government, a One World Government, by the way! The official drug was called soma. The purpose of this drugging was to keep the people so anaesthetized as to prevent them from awakening to their own oppression.
Today, in order to prevent the citizenry from realizing how corrupt and oppressive the system really is, the authorities increasingly resort to mass drugging of the whole society. If you don’t see America’s reflection in this characterization, you haven’t been paying attention. Either that, or you’re one of those who are too doped up to notice what I’m talking about. Of course, the Beast tells us that this all “for our own good.”
Huxley’s fictional soma is today’s real life Prozac.
Here is what Mike Adams had to say, concerning the April 16, 2007 Virginia Tech killings:
The Chicago Tribune reports that Cho Seung Hui, the Virginia Tech shooter who killed 32 fellow students in a shooting rampage, was taking antidepressant drugs. This is not the first time a school shooting rampage has been linked to antidepressants. The infamous Colombine High shootings took place almost exactly eight years ago, and the shooters in that rampage were also — you guessed it — taking antidepressant drugs. What is it about antidepressant drugs that provokes young men to pick up pistols, rifles and shotguns, then violently assault their classmates? Clearly, there’s something wrong with the mind of anyone who engages in such violent acts. Could the drugs be “imbalancing” their minds, priming them for violence?
The answer is a very sobering, “Yes, they could be.” As we reported in a previous NewsTarget article on Paxil:
Researchers from Cardiff University in Britain and the Cochrane Centre examined data on Paxil — or its generic form, paroxetine — from GlaxoSmithKline, legal cases and emails from nearly 1,400 patients who responded to a British TV program on antidepressants. The researchers found that 60 out of 9,219 people taking Paxil — 0.65 percent — experienced a “hostility event,” compared to 20 out of 6,455 patients taking placebo, or 0.31 percent.
In that same article, published in September, 2006, I stated, “This finding helps explain why school shootings are almost always conducted by children who are taking antidepressants. We also know that SSRIs cause children to disconnect from reality. When you combine that with a propensity for violence, you create a dangerous recipe for school shootings and other adolescent violence.”
Sadly, that explanation rings true once again with the Virginia Tech shooting. Wherever we see school violence, antidepressant drugs seem to found at the scene of the crime. The correlation is not coincidence. There is a causal link between the two.
The Monster is a Dope-Pusher, Not a Gun
The American people need to understand that there is a monster on the loose: it is a very unhealthy and un-Constitutional relationship between the FDA and the pharmaceutical companies. The Federal government has become their enabler, giving them unrestricted access to our school children, turning children with “Attention Deficit Disorder” into killer zombies. The problem is that about 1-2% of these children (and adults) become psychotic and act out violent scenes from the “Night of the Living Dead.” From a statistical point of view, 1-2% is not very bad, unless you’re one of the victims. What is often overlooked is the fact that the likelihood of psychotic reactions dramatically increases when other drugs, such as alcohol, marijuana and non-prescription drugs, are combined with anti-depressants.
The real culprit in these mass killings is not guns. The real culprit is the pharmaceutical industry and its covert dictatorship by legalized drugs. In last 30 years, virtually every famous mass killing has been perpetrated by someone taking SSRI medications. SSRI stands for Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors. This class of drugs is legal when prescribed by physicians. The problem is that SSRI’s give these physicians a license to kill. This license to kill is especially dangerous in our nation’s schools, as SSRI’s have replaced discipline with druggery.
The idea that rowdiness and restlessness in school-age children requires a psychological analysis and drug treatment is a recent, very dangerous phenomenon – or, should I say racket. The fact is that virtually none of these school drug programs are necessary. Indeed, most of the inattentiveness, restlessness and hyperactivity in children is directly related to too much dietary intake of processed sugar and carbohydrates. Rather than restricting sugar intake, the Establishment resorts to dispensing pills. Dispensing drugs to school children is just the pharmaceutical corporations’ way of making BIG BUCKS, enforced by the strong arm of the “law,” i.e., the Food and Drug Administration.
We all know about the Revolving Door between the corporate board room and government “regulatory agencies.” This is a marriage made in hell, where ex-drug company execs, now consulting for or employed by the government, routinely advocate more mandatory government drug dispensation programs, from anti-depressants to vaccinations. The profits are guaranteed and the government eliminates the liability risk by giving the drug policy the sanction of “law.” This is pure, unadulterated corruption, overflowing with conflicts of interest. The robber barons didn’t have it so good!
America has long been focused on the problem of illegal drugs. It’s time we faced the fact that LEGAL drugs are tearing our society apart. Consider this report:
Everyone agrees on the question, “How could this have happened in our community?” But the answers vary. Some say, “It’s the handguns.” While others point to society’s moral decay, blaming “too much television, not enough God.” But the answers to the recent scourge of violent shootings plaguing America may be found in our medicine cabinets.
Julian Whitaker, M.D., believes there is a direct link between the violent shootings and the increased and indiscriminate use of popular antidepressant drugs. Dr. Whitaker points out that many of the gun-related massacres that have made the headlines over the past decade have a common thread: they were perpetrated by people taking Prozac, Zoloft, Luvox, Paxil, or a related drug.
A documented side effect of these drugs — known clinically as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) — is akathisia, or physical and mental agitation. Dr. Whitaker says “akathisia is to violence what a match is to gasoline. And this condition has been reported in a significant number of Prozac users.” Moreover, the Food and Drug Administration has received over 40,000 reports detailing adverse effects related to Prozac.
This report was written way back in 1999! Is it possible that the government and the drug companies, with their armies of researchers and technicians, are ignorant of these associations? Is the Kept Press ignorant too? Where are the exposes by Dan Blather and Barbara Falters? Since the biggest advertiser, by far, in virtually every medium, – print, TV, radio, newspapers – is Big Pharma, you can only expect more COVER-UP from your usual “news” source. They’re not about to run stories exposing their cash cow. So much for “honest reporting”!
Behind the headlines, a huge story is not being told. It is a silent war against America and the world. This silent war is being conducted by Big Pharma and Big Government against the people. In reality, it is the Military-Industrial-Pharamceutical-Media-Government complex; and there will be no relief to society’s ills until the people of America say “Enough!” to this Beast. (See. Rev. 17 & 18).
A Orgy of Drug-Induced Slaughter
In 2001, David Hawkins of Australia strangled his wife. Mr. Hawkins was on Zoloft. A Welsh expert on Zoloft, Dr. David Healy, had this to say about this drug: “In my opinion had he not been taking Zoloft the events of that night would not have happened,” Healy wrote in the opinion that was tabled in court.
In 1998, David Schell had a violent episode on Prozac:
Tim Tobin was an ordinary guy with a wife and a baby daughter living in small town America and that was just fine. He and his family were simple, normal people, he says. They didn’t want to be anything different. He and Deb, his wife and their nine-month-old baby, Alyssa, lived in Montana, but they spent a lot of time over the Wyoming border with Deb’s parents, Don and Rita Schell, in the small oil town of Gillette. Alyssa was the first grandchild and everybody adored her.
In February 1998, Deb and the baby were staying with her parents in Gillette. Deb was there for a break and stayed for two weeks because she got ill while she was there. Meanwhile, her father Don was feeling low. He had suffered occasional bouts of depression in the past and it had happened again. The doctor put him on an antidepressant called Paxil (Seroxat in the UK) – a drug in the same class as Prozac.
Two days later, Don Schell, the non-violent family man and doting grandfather, took a .22 calibre pistol and a 357 magnum in the middle of the night and shot dead the three people in the world dearest to him – his wife Rita, his daughter Deb and baby Alyssa. Then he killed himself. The following afternoon Tim Tobin found the scene of carnage that will stay with him as long as he lives.
For a while, he says, he was out of his head. Once he was able to think rationally again, he and Rita’s sister and other family members tried to work out what had happened. Their conclusion was that Don must have been affected by the medication he was on. Nothing else made sense.
They sued GlaxoSmithKline, the British drug giant that makes Paxil, and won a historic victory in June. The jury awarded $6.4m (£4.7m), but it wasn’t for the money that the family put itself through the trauma of the court case. It was to clear Don’s name and to tell the world that there could be problems for some people with the class of antidepressants to which Paxil belongs, known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs).
The number of people who have had psychotic reactions to this class of drugs is too numerous list. It is in the thousands, especially since, in 2012, 12% of American adults were on some form of SSRI, with over $18 billion in profits being earned by Pharmakeia. “60 Minutes” did an “explosive” documentary about the effectiveness of antidepressants versus placebos, but don’t expect any detailed reports about the connection between psychotropic drugs and these mass killings!! This is the dirty little secret that the drug-advertising media will never report. Sixty Minutes has never done a report on this subject;’ and they never will, as long as Big Pharma is their main advertiser. Women are more likely than men to take these anti-depressants, at a whopping rate of 23%. I hope you are beginning to appreciate the size of this problem that is being ignored by the government, the media, the medical profession, and your local school.
Since the “investigative journalists” of fake news shows are absolutely clueless about this subject, a humble pastor from Chicago must do their work for them.
[By the way, as a young man, I would occasionally have bouts of depression. As a tennis player, I quickly realized that getting some exercise would always drive my depression away, even if I lost the match! Americans aren’t getting enough exercise, so they’re not burning up calories nor toxins within their bodies. Pastor Eli’s cure for depression: natural diet plus exercise. That Rx will cost you $1,000 please!]
The Drug Connection to Mass Killings Is Utterly Ignored by the Kosher Press
School shootings have increased at an alarming rate; and every mass killing in recent years has had an anti-depressant drug to blame: Virginia Tech, Colombine in CO, Northern Illinois U., Tucson AZ, Aurora CO, Newtown CT – and next?
Let’s have a look at the prescription drugs that were involved in some of the more famous cases:
Cho Seung-Hui, the Virginia Tech killer: Prozac.
Jeff Weise, 2005 Red Lake Indian Reservation killer: Prozac.
1988: 31-year-old Laurie Dann, walked into a second-grade classroom in Winnetka, Ill., and began shooting. One child was killed and six wounded. Anafranil and Lithium.
1998: Kip Kinkel, a 15-year-old in Springfield, Ore., murdered his parents, then proceeded to his high school, killing two students and wounding 22 others. Prozac and Ritalin.
1989: Patrick Purdy, Stockton, Calif. Five children killed and 30 wounded. Thorazine and Amitriptyline.
1988: James Wilson kills two and wounds seven at the Greenwood, S.C., Elementary School. Xanax and Valium.
1999: Shawn Cooper, 15, of Notus, Idaho, took a shotgun to school and injured one student. Ritalin.
2001: Cory Baadsgaard of Wahluke, Wash., took a rifle to his high school and held 23 classmates hostage. Paxil and Effexor.
1993: Steve Lieth of Chelsea, Mich., killed the school superintendent, wounding two others. Prozac.
Fourteen-year-old Michael Carneal, killed three at a high school prayer meeting in Heath High in West Paducah, Ky. Ritalin.
Thirteen-year-old Chris Fetters of Iowa killed her favorite aunt. She was taking Prozac.
Saturday Night Live Comedian Phil Hartman was killed by his wife, Brynn, in 1998. She then killed her own daughters, then herself. Zoloft.
The shocking murder-suicide that claimed the lives of Canadian comedian Phil Hartman and his wife, Brynn, one year ago this week was triggered by her use of a popular antidepressant, claims a newly filed wrongful death suit.
Gregory Omdahl, Mrs. Hartman’s brother, and the executor of the couple’s estate, filed suit against Pfizer Inc., the makers of the antidepressant Zoloft, in California court this week, alleging that his sister was under the “mind-altering” influence of the drug when she murdered her husband and then committed suicide last May. The civil action, on behalf of the couple’s children, Sean, 10, and Birgen, 7, seeks unspecified damages. It also names Dr. Arthur Sorosky, the Los Angeles psychiatrist who allegedly gave Mrs. Hartman samples of the drug.
Naveed Haq, the Seattle man who shot up the Jewish Day School in July 2007: Lithium and Depakote, after being diagnosed as “bipolar.”
Andrea Yates, who drowned her five children in a bathtub: Zoloft, Effexor, Remeron.
Eric Harris, the Columbine killer: Luvox.
Mass Murder Under the Influence Is a Global Epidemic
If you think this is only a problem in America, think again:
Japan, 2001: Mamoru Takuma, 37, went into a second-grade classroom and started stabbing students. Can you imagine the terror in this classroom? He killed eight second-graders with a knife. SSRI’s found in his car.
The Port Arthur massacre of 28 April 1996 was a killing spree in which 35 people were killed and 23 wounded, mainly at the historic Port Arthurprison colony, Australia. Martin Bryant, a young man from, ironically, New Town, was apprehended and imprisoned. This incident set up the even more historic Australian gun grab, as it certainly shocked a nation into providing a pretext for giving up their guns.
As it turned out, Martin Bryant, had severe mental problems. He was also taking psychotropic drugs. The Murdoch press reported of his parents, “They were coping with his bouts of anger by giving him Prozac.” Here is a timeline of Martin Bryant’s killing spree, asking the question, “How can a mentally impaired person systematically execute all of these people?” A government psyop is highly suspected, especially in the foreglow of the Australian gun grab! http://www.despatch.cth.com.au/Misc/martinbryant/Port%20Arthur%20Massacre.htm
Anders Breivik, the Norwegian mass-killer, whoo killed 77 people in his killing spree, was on steroids – and what else, we don’t know. The Mass Media is not interested in telling us about any drugs involved. Breivik stated to the court, “Normally, I’m a very nice person.” So, what other drugs was he taking? Inquiring minds want to know what the media is not telling! I’m sure there is a witch’s brew specifically designed for Manchurian candidates: brainwashing, hypnotism and drugs.
This is a global phenomenon; but America is the most targeted, for reasons relating to the Second Amendment.
Open the Silent Curtain
These incidents are just a few of the hundreds that are reported. There are perhaps thousands of these violent incidents that go unreported nationally and internationally.
Ann Blake Tracy, Ph.D., author of Prozac: Panacea or Pandora?, researched 32 murder/suicides that involved women and their children. Her research has determined that in 24 of these 32 cases, the women were taking Prozac or another SSRI.
It is known that one-third of bipolar patients react negatively to antidepressants. With such a high ratio, you would think doctors would use another form of treatment. But, remember, modern MD’s have become drug pushers, so don’t expect any change in protocol soon. These are the “sorcerers” of Rev. 18:23. The fact is that the drug manufacturers have a sty full of lawyers, whose job it is to protect the billions of dollars these corporations make annually, at the expense of public safety. It is very important to the legal drug cartel that you remain ignorant of the dangers. You may be the next victim of a drug-induced “hostility event.”
In the movie, “Jaws,” the plot was made interesting by having the local town suppress the news of shark attacks, so as not to scare tourists away from the beautiful beaches. If we were to make a movie about the drug involvement in these famous killings, the title would be “Dr. Psycho and Mr. Thug.”
As writer, Rob Waters reports:
In the early 1990s, Eli Lilly, the maker of Prozac, started the practice of aiding district attorneys who were prosecuting defendants who blamed the drug for their acts of violence. Lawyers for Pfizer, the world’s largest pharmaceutical company, later created a “prosecutor’s manual” for the same purpose.
The Zoloft manual itself is a closely held secret — and Pfizer has fought hard to keep it that way.
In 2001, a widow sued Pfizer because her husband shot and killed himself after six days on Zoloft. Her lawyers discovered in Pfizer’s records a reference to a document called “prosecutor’s manual,” and requested a copy.
Pfizer fought the request, claiming it was privileged information between the company and its attorneys. The judge allowed the manual to be introduced — noting it was designed to prevent “harm to Pfizer’s reputation” if a defendant successfully raised “a Zoloft causation defense” — but he agreed to thereafter seal the manual and keep it out of the public record.
James Hooper, an attorney for Pfizer, says that “in rare cases” the company’s attorneys have provided the manual to prosecutors if a defendant “is attempting to blame some sort of criminal behavior on the medicine.”
So, if you’re considering filing a lawsuit over a fatality or injury caused by SSRI’s, better make sure you have a few million dollars to spare, to protect yourself from a counter-suit!!! These tactics are only a hair’s-breadth away from a mafia-style hit. There’s not much difference between being literally killed versus financially ruined by a drug company. Some would prefer a quick death.
The Silent Curtain: Mass Media Is Complicit
I’m afraid that the current rash of shootings will continue to be blamed on “guns.” Don’t expect the gun-grabber lobby to join us in this anti-drug crusade. This killing spree actually suits the gun-grabber/lawyer lobby (who are very much allied with Big Government, Big Pharma, and Big Media), because they can keep us all trembling with horror stories about gun violence, while distracting you from the real problem, and the real Evil Empire of Legal Drugs. When the government legally protects an industry from accountability, then disaster is not far behind. We are seeing this disaster unfold. How long will Mr. and Mrs. America be fooled by this organized terror campaign?
The same group (George Orwell’s Big Brother) that wants to dope you up also wants to undermine the Second Amendment. We are dealing with a Beast that creates artificial problems and then “solves” these contrived problems for us by instituting repressive laws. Via the artifice of gradualism, tyranny marches on. Our rights and freedoms are being chipped away by the government and the legal drug lords. Ironically, these same corporate dope-pushers do not hesitate to criticize the Nazis for their suspect usage fluoride and other drugs against the prison population. No shortage of hypocrisy here! These people need to look into the mirror and see the exact resemblance. And Americans need to look back at history and see that the gulags are not far behind.
There’s a Killer on the Loose
Dr. Frankenstein’s List of Psychotropic Killers:
Eric Harris – Prozac and Luvox.
Dylan Kliebold – Paxil and Zoloft.
Jared Lee Loughner – the AZ killer, Prozac.
Kip Kinkel – Prozac.
Joseph Wesbecker – Prozac.
James Holmes, the Aurora CO killer – Prozac.
Adam Lanza – Fanapt
WAKE UP, AMERICA!!!
The pharmaceutical companies may be catching a lot of flak, as Americans are beginning to wake up to the drug connection in all of these mass killings. It’s not the guns, stupid, it’s the drugs:
“No psychiatric drug ads on CNN after Newtown shootings”:
Today, while I was looking up some of the individual cases of these dope-driven killers, my computer screen was peppered with unsolicited ads for Prozac and other drugs. Can’t get away from it, folks! It’s everywhere!! Sort of makes you feel like a small clown in a giant drug circus. Got some Quaaludes, man?
If you or your child is taking anti-depressants, you should seriously consider stopping the program…immediately. If you are depressed, go outside and exercise. If you know of someone who is on SSRI’s, and you notice dramatic mood changes, you should intervene immediately. The life you save may be your own. Print out this article, take it to your doctor’s office, and tell him to provide a safe alternative, like healthy food, vitamins and exercise. Drugs are NOT the answer!!!
I’m afraid there’s still a killer on the loose, and it’s not guns. He’s a cousin of Dr. Frankenstein and that surgeon, Jack the Ripper. Instead of a dingy old castle, the “Doctor” has a big factory and posh offices. His profession victimizes patients to the tune of nearly 800,000 people year – that means deaths, not injuries. That is the number of victims who die annually from malpractice in America. His name is Dr. Psycho Frankenstein, and his salary is paid by the US government.
America is undergoing an EPIDEMIC OF DRUG-INDUCED TERROR, and your most trusted “doctors” and “news” sources are its facilitators. Since the government is not going to do anything about this legalized murder spree, it may be time for the villagers to get out their clubs, pitchforks, axes and shotguns and have a good, old-fashioned vigilante uprising! Dr. Psycho Frankenstein is getting nervous! He has too much invested to turn back now! It is time for the villagers to storm Dr. Frankenstein’s castle!
Smash the Pharmakeia/Big Brother (“Have Paxil, will kill”) New World Order!
We can now add Devin Kelly to the list of psychotic killers on dope. Only a brief mention of Kelly’s medical history here by Fox News:
Texas church shooter Devin Patrick Kelley served in Air Force, was court-martialed for assaulting wife, child — (Fox News)

By Travis Fedschun, Greg Norman
November 6, 2017
Shocked former classmates who attended middle and high school with Texas church gunman Devin Patrick Kelley described him Monday as being heavily medicated and someone who kept to himself — despite a deluge of posts on his apparent Facebook profile about weapons and atheism.
Kelley — dressed entirely in black and “wearing a face mask with a white skull on it,” according to Texas Department of Public Safety’s regional director Freeman Martin — burst into the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas on Sunday and killed at least 26 people, one as young as 18-months old.
A former middle school classmate told Fox News that Kelley would complain about his parents and medications during school.

“His parents had him on high doses of ‘psych’ meds from 6th to 9th grade, the time I knew him,” said the student, who only wished to be identified as Reid.
The student also said Kelley often posted on his Facebook page about his assault rifle and atheism, and that “a lot of friends quit talking to him by senior year.”
Courtney Kleiber, a New Braunfels High School student who identified herself as Kelley’s “best friend for a number of years,” said in a Facebook discussion about the shooting that Kelley once was heavily involved with the First Baptist Church.
“I was his best friend for a number of years and he was a happy, caring person back then. It’s crazy what time and [mental] illness can do to you,” she wrote.
“Great, now I can’t even look through my senior yearbook without seeing this,” she posted on her Facebook page late Sunday, next to a picture of her and Kelley.
Another classmate who spoke to Fox News and wished to remain anonymous described Kelley as a quiet student, though he had his share of friends.
“He recently added me on [Facebook]. I accepted hence we went to school together, and any time I saw him on my timeline he was sharing stuff about guns and being atheist,” she said. “He was pretty negative. The last post I remember was of a rifle.”
Kelley’s Facebook page has since been taken down.
Chatter amongst other students on Facebook who say they knew Kelley suggested he had a volatile relationship with his parents.
One student said Kelley used to tell her about issues with his dad, while another said they watched Kelley verbally abuse his parents.
Kelley was also a member of his high school’s football team, Reid said. One student said Kelley’s father would go “crazy” if Kelley messed up on the field.

Brittany Adcock, a 22-year-old who told NBC News that she dated Kelley for two months when she was 13 and he was 18, said Kelley would constantly call her after she broke off the relationship.
“He would offer me money to hang out with him quite a bit. There has been one point that I called the police because he was just calling me so much I wanted to report harassment,” Adcock told the network. “One time he told me I should move in with him and his wife and that he would take care of me as long as I walked around topless.”
Kelley had previously served in the U.S. Air Force, and was stationed at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico from 2010 until his discharge in 2014, an Air Force spokesperson confirmed to Fox News.
He was court-martialed in 2012 for assaulting his wife and his child, and later received a bad conduct discharge from the Air Force, in addition to confinement for 12 months, and was reduced in rank.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Monday said there was a connection between the “very deranged individual” and the church where the slayings took place, telling “FOX & Friends” that people will learn about a link.
“I don’t think the church was just randomly attacked,” he said. “I think there was a reason why the shooter chose this church.”
The gunman was also denied a Texas gun permit, according to Abbott.
“He was rejected either because he did not fully answer all the questions that are required to get a Texas gun permit, or he answered those questions wrong, that we still don’t know,” he said.
Wilson County Sheriff Joe Tackitt told Fox News that Kelley’s former father-in-law did attend the First Baptist Church, but he and his wife were not there Sunday.
His ex-mother-in-law’s P.O. Box was also listed as having a mailing address in Sutherland Springs, the Daily Beast reported.
Kelley previously registered to vote in Colorado in 2014 and listed his address as a parking space in a RV park in Colorado Springs, according to the New York Times.
A woman who lived in the spot next to the address said a man of similar age and description lived in that space for a few months during that time, and that he had a pit bull puppy that was left tied up in the sun all day.
She told the New York Times that there was an incident where police were called because the man — who she never learned the name of — struck the dog in the head, leading to a standoff with police in which the man refused to come out of his trailer for an hour.
Records show Kelley was charged with cruelty to animals in August 2014 but the case was dropped, the New York Times reported.
Kelley worked as a security guard for a Texas waterpark this past summer, according to a resume under his name that appeared online.
The suspect, who is from New Braunfels, a suburb outside San Antonio, was found dead in his car after he sped away from the scene of the shooting and was chased by two Good Samaritans.
Tackitt told Fox News on Monday authorities believe the gunshot wound that ultimately killed Kelley was “self-inflicted,” however, there was also an exchange of gunfire before and during the case.
“All I know is he stopped another resident right over here and said, ‘Lets go we got an active shooter, we need to get him stopped,’ and they were chasing him,” he said. “They were shooting rounds at him and then he went off the road, we don’t know if he was actually hit again or what, but wrecked out. He was from my understanding self-inflicted gun shot wound.”
Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin, Lucas Tomlinson, and The Associated Press contributed to this report.
