[Ed. – Each day brings out more red flags on this guy. His tendencies were well known. Ultimately, a reminder that no system of restraints or tripwires can guarantee that nothing bad will every happen — although the number of clues there were to do something about is pretty mind-boggling.]
Texas church shooter Devin Kelley claimed he bought animals on Craigslist with the sole intention of killing them, a former Air Force colleague told CNN.
Jessika Edwards, who says she worked with Kelley at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico from 2010 to 2012, said Kelley told her he was “using the dogs as target practice.”
The morbid admission came in Facebook messages starting in 2014, Edwards said, after the two reconnected in civilian life. Though Edwards can’t say whether Kelley was telling the truth, the odd behavior was enough for her to stop communicating with him. …
A law enforcement source close to the Texas shooting investigation confirmed to CNN that FBI agents interviewed Edwards about her interactions with the gunman.
