    This happened to catch my eye as my husband has seen a few of their videos and shown some of them to me.

    How awful. My hubby has shown me the FPSRussia videos but he had never viewed Meyer's own you tube channel.

    In this article it says he was shot once in the head and had been dead for awhile. No forced entry and LE not so sure it was murder. His wife and child lived in another state, maybe he was depressed around the holidays.

    I have a feeling you are right. Heck, I get the blues this time of year and I have everything to be happy for! I imagine he must have been going thru quite a lot emotionally. Divorce sucks, especially with little ones. :(

    if it were a suicide, the gun that killed him should have been found close to the body.

    They are calling it murder now:

    The man's death is being investigated as a homicide, Mike Ayers of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation confirmed to FoxNews.com.

    "He [Ratliff] did sustain a gunshot wound that was not self-inflicted," Ayers said, adding that "robbery does not appear to be the motive."

    It sounds like there were several guns close by the body but none of them were the murder weapon. LE says the case is "progressing", hopefully it will be solved soon.

    LE is in Kentucky now, the weapon was NOT at the scene. They HAVE person's of interest...

    "No arrests have been made, but we have people of interest associated with the victim and they are being interviewed at this time. That's basically all we can release at this time," he said.

    http://www.independentmail.com/news/2013/jan/16/homicide-case-sends-investigators-to-kentucky/

    I wonder if the murder was related to custody issues. He was separated from his wife and child at the time.

    He was in fact going through a divorce and they were fighting over custody issues. His estranged wife that has been shown on the news sporting a picture of him from a previous marriage, did in fact have a boyfriend at the time of Keith's death. She also had not let Keith see his child in almost a year. The investigation is still on going and I pray they find the person or persons responsible for taking the love of my life away from me!

    This man is the brother of an acquaintance on another site. It seems that people are connecting him to Chris Kyle and John Noveske.

    Link snipped because it is a bad source. Will look for more.. Sorry.
