More information is coming out about the suspect in the Sikh Temple massacre. He was wearing tactical armor like the assailant in Aurora. His name is Wade Michael Page and get this; during his military career, he had been assigned to various psychological operations units.
“The suspect in a shooting that left six people dead at a Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee on Sunday has been identified as Wade Michael Page, who served in the U.S. Army for about six years.
According to sources in the U.S. Army, Page enlisted in April 1992 and given a less-than-honorable discharge in October 1998. He served at Fort Bliss, Texas, in the psychological operations unit in 1994, and was last stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, attached to the psychological operations unit. The details of his discharge were not immediately clear.” CBS News
It’s also been reported that the suspect has only been at his location for two weeks. Did he move into that location about the same time that the Aurora Massacre took place? The address is a duplex in the 3700 block of E. Holmes Ave. And get this… he had lived in Colorado…
CBS News correspondent Ben Tracy reports Page is only believed to have lived at the residence for two weeks, according to neighbors.
“Nobody has really seen him,” neighbor Alma Rayes tells CBS News. “We heard here and there that they’ve been doing a lot of arguing, between him and another female, but I haven’t seen him.” CBS News
the suspect has “only lived in our area for a short time” Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards
It is also reported that Wisconsin has very lax gun control laws and in fact they passed legislation back in 2011 allowing citizens to carry concealed weapons.
UPDATE: Check this out:
“According to records obtained by the Journal Sentinel, Page appears to have lived the last several years in North Carolina, Colorado and Texas, before arriving in the Milwaukee area earlier this year. Several listed addresses associated with Page suggest he has been in the U.S. military.” JSO
The suggestion here is that his addresses indicate that he was STILL working for the military in some capacity. And look at that, he had lived in Colorado…. ?
I wonder if Page owned a blue and white plaid shirt?
