FBI Findings in the Alexandria Virginia Shooter
FBI ^ | 6/21/2017 | FBI

Posted on 06/21/2017 2:56:03 PM PDT by scooby321

Today, law enforcement officials shared findings to date of the investigation into the shooting that occurred at the Eugene Simpson Stadium Park on Wednesday, June 14, 2017.

Analysis of Hodgkinson’s laptop computers show online activity the night before the shooting; however, no Internet searches were discovered the morning of the shooting. The Internet searches Hodgkinson performed the night before the shooting included a Google map search from Alexandria to his home in Belleville and a Google search of the “2017 Republican Convention.” While online, he also accessed a financial account and one of his Facebook accounts, where he visited a news website to look up news highlights. Through witness accounts, Hodgkinson was reported to frequent the local libraries in Alexandria where he could obtain free Wi-Fi; however, he was unable to use the Alexandria Library computers as he was a non-resident and therefore not eligible for a local library card.

Content found on Hodgkinson’s phone shows photographs and videos between April 11 and April 26. Hodgkinson took photographs at various sites on the National Mall and at various monuments, including the east front plaza of the U.S. Capitol, inside the visitor’s entrance of the Dirksen Senate Office Building, the front entrance of the Library of Congress, the west side of the Supreme Court, the front entrance of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture, and the Washington Monument. On April 15, Hodgkinson took multiple photographs of Eugene Simpson Stadium Park. At this point in the investigation, the FBI does not believe that these photographs represented surveillance of intended targets, however, we continue to learn more about Hodgkinson’s recent activities.

He couldn’t get a library card or use their computers but Terrible Terry,the VA Gov, would have let him vote.

I want to know how he knew when and where the Republican baseball practice was being held. He clearly targeted it. So how did he know about it? The FBI report is silent on that issue.

Thought the shooter had a librarian friend from FakeBook.

Did anyone check those computers?

Right here. The NYT published in an April article, pretty much everything but which team was practicing when. that's why the murdering scum had to ask, "Are they Republicans?"

Just because it was in a NYT article doesn't mean that's where Hodgkinson got the information. I hope the FBI is aggressively working this angle to determine where Hodgkinson learned it. Questions that come to mind ...

1. How did Hodgkinson determine which baseball field the Republicans would practice on out of all publicly accessible baseball fields in Alexandria?

2. Did someone else read the NYT article and either a) verbally pass along the information it contained; or b) direct Hodgkinson to the article directly?

It is awfully curious that the FBI is silent on such a critical question. I certainly wouldn't assume that the NYT article was the source like the Gateway blogger did.

It is interesting to note that Hodgkinson joined the YMCA adjacent to the baseball fields on April 4, more than week before the April 12 article that the Gateway blogger points out.

Is getting a membership at the YMCA adjacent to Eugene Simpson Stadium Park a huge coincidence? Or did Hodgkinson know where the practice would be held before the publication of the April 12 NYT article? Again, I hope the FBI is aggressively investigating this.

Where is his body? Have services been scheduled? Or is he really still alive? Remember there was a great deal of confusion as the his status that day - alive, dead, alive, dead....etc.

Bernie, Durbin or Duckworth may have told him.

Who knows what they discussed. It needs to be investigated : )

The FBI is hopeless. They will never get to the bottom of this radical leftist terrorist act of attempted mass political assassination - not because they can't ... but because they won't. The fix by the Deep State is obviously in.

The DOJ needs to fire everybody covering up that investigation. They are either criminally corrupt or grossly incompetent and they deserve to be immediately fired for the good of the country.
