More on the Cryptic Message
Revealing more details on the cryptic message, the document mentions that the messages were ‘better of this way’ and ‘my ELF weapon’. The document also explained that the Remington weapon had been ‘sawed off’.
The shotgun had been used by Aaron Alexis, a former navy reservist to go a shooting rampage at the Washington Navy Yard on Monday. The attack killed 12 people and the gunman, who was gunned down by the authorities trying to rescue the scene.
Investigating officers say that Alexis’ mental state was questionable since he had visited two hospitals just weeks before the attack and was being treated for insomnia. The accused had a used a legally-bought weapon.
