US bank shooter Connor Sturgeon reportedly left a disturbing manifesto outlining three key reasons for his violent rampage that left five co-workers dead.
The 25-year-old commercial developer allegedly wrote a 13-page missive that detailed his motives for gunning down his colleagues during their morning conference at the Old National Bank in Louisville, Kentucky last week.
The 25-year-old shooter laid out three key points in the manifesto, according to the Daily Mail: he wanted to kill himself, he wanted to prove how easy it was to buy a gun in Kentucky, and he wanted to highlight a mental health crisis in America. He bought the rifle days before the committing the attack.
WDRB reports the shooter’s family say the man had mental health issues but there were no warning signs he was going to kill people. The family further reveals he was on medication for his mental health issues.
“…like many of his contemporaries, [he] had mental health challenges which we, as a family, were actively addressing, there were never any warning signs or indications he was capable of this shocking act,” according to the family’s statement. “While we have many unanswered questions, we will continue to cooperate fully with law enforcement officials and do all we can to aid everyone in understanding why and how this happened.”
The neighbor of Sturgeon’s claimed to The Post that the manifesto was found by Sturgeon’s roommate Dallas Whelan – the same friend who Sturgeon left a voicemail for saying he felt “suicidal” and planned to “kill everyone at the bank”.
I’m shrewd, passionate, learned and energetic, God-fearing and patriotic. I’ve done a fine job reintroducing good old American conservatism to a new generation of Americans. I’ve earned the love and friendship of many, the hatred of some, but the respect of all.
