Letters found inside the home and car of the Virginia man who murdered a TV reporter news reporter and her cameraman on the air Wednesday reveal that he identified himself with the 9/11 terrorists.
“Based on careful scrutiny of those writings and evidence seized from his apartment, it is apparent that [Vester Lee] Flanagan very closely identified with individuals who have committed domestic acts of violence and mass murder, as well as the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the U.S.,” the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office said, according to the New York Post.
Police added what many had suspected all along: that the murders of WDBJ reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward were “well planned and premeditated,” and that Flanagan had been keeping tabs on them for quite a while.
“We are considering that he stalked the two victims,” one source told the Post. “It’s one of our main theories. We are also poring over his social media accounts and all of his prior contacts.”
The Post reported:
Brandishing a Glock in one hand and a cellphone in the other, Flanagan sneaked up and fatally shot Parker, 24, and Ward, 27, as they filmed a live morning news segment on Wednesday.
Police added that Flanagan fired 17 shots during his attack.
The medical examiner’s office in Roanoke revealed Friday that Parker sustained gunshot wounds to the head and chest, while Ward was struck in the head and torso.
“Flanagan left no indication as to his eventual destination or his next/final actions,” the sheriff’s office said.
“Investigators are still working to determine if he was wearing protective clothing or gear at the shooting scene in Franklin County.”
Vickie Gardner, who was being interviewed by Parker when the attack occurred, was struck in the back.
“He shot three times at my wife,” Tim Gardner told ABC News on Friday. “She was trying to dodge everything. He missed twice and then she dove to the ground and curled up in a ball.”
