    DC - Kyle Odom, shooting suspect, ‘hypersexual’ Martian manifesto

    On Tuesday evening, as tourists snapped photos in front of the White House, a young man with blond hair and blue eyes approached the black iron fence.

    Kyle Odom wasn’t there to take pictures, though.

    He was there to deliver a message to the president.

    A Secret Service agent spotted Odom tossing something over the fence and approached him. When the agent ran his name through a law enforcement database, a red flag popped up: an arrest warrant issued just two days earlier on the other side of the country.

    The charge: attempted murder.

    Arriving seemingly out of nowhere, Odom was arrested at the White House, bringing a sudden end to a two-day hunt for the Marine veteran.

    It also provided a bizarre coda to an already baffling crime saga, one that stretched from rural Idaho to the nation’s capital and potentially threatened the lives of 50 members of Congress.

    ~~

    But Odom’s manifesto suggests that the shooting, if he did it, was something else entirely: the act of an unraveling mind.

    The 21-page manifesto, which authorities say Odom sent to his parents as well as several Idaho television stations, is a window into what he was thinking.

    According to Coeur d’Alene police, Odom has a history of mental illness. In his manifesto, he outlined his path to Sunday’s shooting in clear but increasingly paranoid prose.

    He admitted to plotting to shoot Remington. He also claimed that the pastor was part of a vast alien conspiracy to enslave the human race — a conspiracy that Odom believed extended to Congress.

    Kyle Odom to be moved out of state mental hospital
    The man accused of shooting a Coeur d’Alene pastor will be moved out of a state mental hospital.

    On Wednesday, a judge signed an order ending Kyle Odom’s commitment to a state hospital. He will now be transported back to Coeur d’Alene for further proceedings.

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.

    This is why we need better mental health services. He literally looked at things we saw as normal and his mind interpreted it in crazy ways.
