From the National Guard:
Watching the news coverage of the triple killer in Fort Hood is making us sick.
They won’t show Ivan Lopez, the 34 year old psychopath killer. He just killed 3 people. So NewsBall will step in & show what mass media hasn’t as of 4/3 at 7am pacific.
How can he be allowed on a military base with his weapon when he was being treated for anxiety, depression, & other illnesses?
Xanderia Morris did just give an interview saying how his wife is her neighbor, & she seemed shocked & in denial hearing that her husband was the killer. Apparently he had a child as well, and according to Xanderia, they were a normal family, always saying hi.
The wife of the unhinged soldier who killed three people and left 16 wounded after opening fire at Fort Hood was “hysterical” the moment she saw on TV that her husband was the gunman, her neighbor said.
The unidentified wife of Ivan Lopez, 34 — a U.S. Army specialist who had just moved to the Killeen area with his family in February, after transferring from another Texas military base — came out of her home in tears once news broke of the shooting, said neighbor Xanderia Morris.
“She was worried and she was crying. I tried to console her and comfort her, let her know everything was okay.”
The woman was with the daughter, believed to be about 3 years old, that she shared with Lopez, Morris recalled.
But the mother was more concerned that her husband might be a victim, not the shooter.
Suddenly, news reports identified the suspected gunman after he fatally turned the gun on himself and the wife turned “hysterical,” Morris said.
We reached out to Xanderia for pictures of the killer’s wife, but so far no response back.
Xanderia Morris works at Cracker Barrel. Completely digressing, never heard of the place until our Skylar Neese series contained the arrest of young killer Shelia Eddy at a Cracker Barrel. Funny how we never hear of something, then once it’s on our radar we see a lot of it, huh! Cracker Barrel is apparently in 40+ states – California needs to get with it!
Again, we want the name & photo of the wife, as well as more photos (or correct ones) of Ivan Lopez. Let’s beat the mass media to the punch. So far their incompetence is glaring. They aren’t even showing the guy. It’s been 24 hours, how much more time do they need? The story just doesn’t work, & doesn’t sit right with viewers, when you are showing images of chaos & victims running, shot, & not showing who is responsible for all of it. They are about to drop the story & go right back to their pointless 24/7 over-saturated coverage of the long gone Malaysia Airlines any hour now, so we need to put this guy & his wife on blast while it’s all fresh. Did she know what she was getting into with this unhinged, psychologically damaged soldier? Did she ignore the signs or was she oblivious to them? Did she know he was capable of this? On the surface we should say yes. Anyone trained to kill & who may or may not have witnessed unimaginable bloodshed & horrors in barbaric lands is capable of anything now (apparently Ivan Lopez sustained minimal combat experience), & that is not a bash against our soldiers, it just is what it is. Even a local said it wasn’t a matter of if this would happen again (2009 Nidal Hasan), but when.
For purposes of readers intrigue & curiosity as to what she looks like & to complete the pieces of the puzzle to this story, send any & all info about Ivan Lopez or his family to INFO@NEWSBALL.COM
Check back later. Maybe someone in our network knows Ivan, & we will be given his / his wife’s pictures &/or an interview.
We have enough explosive + exclusive dramatically tragic stories in the works, so let’s end this one light if we can. Here is a police pursuit from a few days ago. We pick up where the cop is starting to hit into this suspects car, trying to cut it off. Eventually the car pulls over, but you will be surprised to find who the suspect is, & even more surprising what the suspect does next! Does not run away or flees or surrenders!!!! So what option is left? Got to wonder what kind of state of mind someone like this is in! Then they can’t even put em’ in the cop car!! A unique ending to a NOT so high speed police chase that is worth of sharing :
