Eddie Routh Information

Eddie Ray Routh is in custody for allegedly killing Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle on a gun range. Routh is 25 and was picked up by police.
The Erath County Sheriff's Office issued an alert for the arrest of the suspect, who was later identified as Eddie Routh, 25. Officials warned that Routh was traveling in a Ford F-150 pickup with large tires and rims. They said he was believed to be highly trained with military experience. 
Routh was reportedly later captured in Lancaster, south of Dallas. 
Investigators believe Routh, a former Marine, turned his weapon on Kyle and the second victim before fleeing the scene.
Update:  Some more information:
The motive of the shooting remained unclear, Bryant said. "Not a clue; absolutely no idea." 
WFAA/Channel 8 quoted unnamed sources as saying that Kyle of Midlothian and a neighbor had taken Routh on an outing to help him deal with post-traumatic stress disorder. Routh turned on the men and shot them in the back, the report added. 
The sheriff said he could not confirm how the victims were shot. 
In January 2012, the Cleburne Times-Review reported that Routh of Lancaster was arrested in Johnson county on a DWI charge. Public records showed Routh previously lived in Camp LeJeune, N.C., site of a major Marine base.

  1. Poor soldier. I hope he will be cured by specialists. RIP victims.
    Cpr. from Poland.

  2. I'm wondering if Obama had anything to do with the murder of this high decorated American war hero. Seriously. On Friday Obama continued his purge of the federal government with the removal of SS Director Mark Sullivan. Maybe the political purge has just become a BLOOD PURGE of those the Obama Regime deem potential rebel leaders.

    1. kill yourself repeatedly with a blunt knife.

    2. Ronald, you are an idiot.

  3. Ronald, I am sure Obama had alot to do with this. If anything, this just shows that we should arm individuals at gun ranges so things like this cant happen.

    1. You are probably right. I did see a photo of Obama shooting a gun on his LEFT shoulder. It was a RIFLE. This just keeps getting weirder and weirder. They said he was shooting SKEET, but he was probably shooting Chris Kyle.

    2. Reread what you wrote. "Arm individuals at gun ranges". Really? Are you seriously that stupid?

  4. Mr.anonymous, I only hope your smart ass comments about armed people at gun ranges gets you an extra hot burning spot in hell. Mental cases like you cause these problems. When your with your so called friends your the one guy that has all the answers, the big mouth, know it all. Show this post to your so called friends, bet they agree.

  5. Routh is from Midilothian - not Chris Kyle - Craft international ( Chris Kyle's company) was hosting a civilian training event at the range. It was $2995 per person so I doubt Routh was a paying customer. Sad sad tragedy for anyone connected or involved.
