NAVY Seal Chris Kyle Murdered at Charity Event in Texas

There seem to be some conflicting reports about the death of celebrated NAVY Seal Chris Kyle today:


Via Glen Rose Reporter:

Two individuals are reportedly dead in a suspected homicide reported near Glen Rose.

Erath County Sheriff’s investigators, Stephenville police and Texas Rangers are reportedly at the scene at this time.

Police are reportedly searching for a vehicle in connection with the deaths. The pickup truck is described as a large black four-door truck, elevated high off of the ground. The suspect vehicle is described as completely covered in Rhino Liner with a skull sticker in the back window.

From the Empire Tribune:

A former Tarleton State University student who wrote the best-selling book, “American Sniper,” was one of two victims shot and killed at Rough Creek Lodge late Saturday afternoon.

Chris Kyle and a friend were found dead at Rough Creek’s shooting range.

“We have identified a strong suspect,” Erath County Sheriff Tommy Bryant said.

Law enforcement officials throughout the county were searching for a large four-door Ford pickup that is high off the ground and covered in Rhino liner. There is a skull sticker in the back window.

Authorities had not made an arrest as of press time Saturday night.

The suspect is considered to be armed and dangerous. Anyone who sees a vehicle matching that description is urged to call 911 immediately.

Bryant would not release additional information about the case, but a source working at Rough Creek Lodge confirmed that one of the victims is Kyle.

Kyle is a former Navy SEAL who served four tours of duty in Iraq, where he was given the nickname “The Devil of Ramadi” by insurgents.

My blog  covered a story involving Chris Kyle last year where he claimed that he had punched out Jesse Ventura for spouting anti-Military slurs at a bar.

Whatever happened, may he rests in peace, and his murderer is caught quickly and prosecuted to the furthest extent of the law.


GLEN ROSE — Two people were killed Saturday at a resort in Erath County, according to an alert from the sheriff’s office.

One of the victims at the Rough Creek Lodge near Glen Rose was a Navy Seal sniper, according to the alert.

A warning was issued for the suspect, who was believed to be driving a black Ford F-350 truck with large tires and rims.

The suspect was believed to be highly trained with military experience.




Eddie Routh, identified by news sources as the murderer, had been busted last month for DWI:

Eddie Ray Routh, 24, of Lancaster, DWI with open container, $1,500 bond.


Here’s a video of Chris on the Conan O’Brien show, talking about his book:

Chris wrote an autobiography called “American Sniper” – if you haven’t purchased it yet, it might help his family. If there’s any way to donate to them, I’ll post that too.
