Personal Information Released On Virginia TV Broadcasters Shooting (Videos)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


(N.Morgan) As reports hit the airways about a shooting that took place during on air interview in Virginia this morning, many conspiracy theories are already flooding the alternative news sites and forums.

This bizarre shooting took the lives of reporter Alison Parker and photographer Adam Ward.

Details have now been released that the alleged shooter is 41 year old Vester Lee Flanagan II of Roanoke, VA.

According to CNN, Vester L. Flanagan — the man authorities say they’re seeking in connection with Wednesday’s fatal shooting of two journalists — worked at WDBJ as a reporter for about a year using the on-air name Bryce Williams, according to a former WDBJ employee.

Flanagan was fired from the station, though the reason was not made public, the ex-employee said.

It is believed that Flanagan is still in the Virginia area, a law enforcement source briefed on the search said.

It has also come to the light one the victims, reporter Alison Parker has recently become engaged to another anchor from the station, Chris Hurst and they had just moved in together to begin their lives together as one.

There are already certain elements of this story that have changed in just the last few moments.
One that catches my attention is how quickly they decided who the suspect is.
The shooter had also been a one time anchor at the news station where both victims worked and was claiming he’d been the target of racism in the work place.
He claimed Alison was one of those who made racist comments to him.

Law enforcement confronted Vester Flanagan on Interstate 66 and Flanagan shot himself, officials tell CNN.

There are conflicting reports at this time as to wether he survived the self inflicted wound.

 ABC News reported that it has received a fax containing a 23-page manifesto from someone named Bryce Williams, the news outlet tweeted.

The document has been handed over to investigators, ABC said.

 Virginia Tech, photographer Adam Ward’s alma mater, said in a statement, “It is shocking and deeply saddening for this community to be again struck by gun violence. We deplore this senseless violence, now seemingly commonplace in our society.”


 One of Ward’s professors, Robert Denton, added, “Adam was a delightful person. He worked hard — you could tell he loved what he was doing.

He wasn’t afraid to pitch in and do whatever was necessary for the broadcast.

He did whatever was needed with a smile and with grace. He was simply a very nice young man and very professional.”

CNN reports that contrary to earlier reports, the woman being interviewed—Vicki Gardner, executive director of the Smith Mountain Lake Chamber of Commerce—was also injured in the shooting. She was reportedly shot in the back and is currently in surgery.

      This event smells pretty rotten. How is it that this guy holds the handgun outward in a shooting position, arm 3/4 extended then seems to retract it and the woman being interviewed doesn’t even respond to this obvious threatening gesture to her forward left ? Even if not fully paying attention to the shooter as he approached, his extended arm with handgun in hand would have caught any normal person’s immediate attention out of their peripheral vision. Also what is this guy doing on the site of this interview at 0645 in the morning being a “former” employee and supposedly filing an EEOC complaint against the female reporter….and she doesn’t even flinch at his presence ? The news camera man was filming something out over the guard rail, not the the reporter doing the interview….what’s up with that ? Very conveniently, for the story’s sake, the shooter takes his own life so there’s no way to find out anything else from his perspective. Dead men tell no tales. A very high probability that this is another anti-gun false flag event to drive the anti-gun agenda more forcefully down the the road to completion.

        I agree, that there’s something that doesn’t smell right. The other thing that doesn’t make sense is that he squeezed off 3 or 4 shots and she was still running away? It doesn’t work that way. Also … no blood (not to be gory) but usually in shootings at this short range, there’s a lot of blood evident immediately, and there was none.

          Blood splatter is not like you see in da moovies.

            I saw no traces of blood on the wood decking. With 3 people being shot multiple times there would certainly be blood patterns all over the wood deck.

      Hello Angle#3(prelim),

      Charlie here. I know you heard it. There was an old white lady a couple of weeks ago that did not want a negro delivery man and they had to change their delivery guy.

      She just said she did not want a negro in her house. Maybe grandma did know a thing or too, huh? :wink:

      All I know is practicing racism and liberalism allowed an illegal unqualified Negro to run this country to the ground and rape it’s Constitution, allowed Bill Cosby to molest dozens and dozens of women, and Muslims to go on free shooting sprees.


      Charlie (who fights terrorism with the 3 D’s. Dialogue, Doughnuts, Diabetes.) :lol:

    • !i!-!i!

      Ummm, because…..”If Obama had a son!”

      Do we abolish the NAACP, SPLC, National Association of Black Journalists, National Association of Black Accountants, Inc., National Association of Black Hotel Owners, Operators & Developers (NABHOOD), National Black Chamber of Commerce (NBCC), National Coalition of 100 Black Women (NCBW), United Negro College Fund (UNCF), et alii, now, or do we end the war on the Confederacy post haste?

      It’s not surprising they found a suspect immediately. The man used to work at the station and he was caught on camera at the shooting. In a time of deceit, telling the truth is revolutionary, so here it goes. 2011 to 2013 I worked in Vermont at WTKR as a weekend director with Melissa Ott, the deceased photographer’s fiance. After mu wife and I moved to norfolk and she moved to Roanoke, we met up a few times, and I met Adam. He drove a silver flex fuel pick-up truck, bought us dinner, and was very respectful and kind. I have no reason to doubt the official story. I have no reason to believe any of this was staged, as I will be attending his open casket funeral. His fiance melissa will be working in charlotte NC and is not in some witness protection program. It is amazing how many people on this site and IW are searching for truth, but so unwilling to accept it when it is right here. I wish I could ease everybodys mind, but the MSM and the leftist politicians make that practically impossible for me.adv
