Alleged Navy Seal Murderer Had PTSD

In the months before allegedly killing Chris Kyle, author of American Sniper, and his friend Chad Littlefield, Iraq war veteran Eddie Ray Routh had checked into a mental hospital twice. "Eddie stated he was hurting and that his family does not understand what he has been through," according to the check-in report. He also told authorities he was suffering from PTSD. Twenty-five-year-old Routh is being charged with one count of capital murder and two counts of murder for the killing of Kyle and Littlefield at a shooting range in Texas.
