Flanagan Suicide Note: ‘Race War’

Vester Lee Flanagan faxed a 23-page suicide note to ABC News after he killed two Roanoke, Virginia, journalists from WDBJ at approximately 7 a.m. Wednesday. At 8:26 a.m., ABC News reports it received a fax from a “Bryce Williams,” which was Flanagan’s name on WDBJ. According to ABC News, Flanagan wrote he purchased his gun two days after the Charleston, South Carolina, church shooting in June. “The church shooting was the tipping point… but my anger has been building steadily... I’ve been a human powder keg for a while… just waiting to go BOOM!!!!” Flanagan said Charleston suspect Dylann Roof is getting the “race war” he wanted. Flanagan also spoke of being attacked for being black and gay.
