His real name was Keith Ratliff, and he was 32.

The shooting has been ruled a homicide, and robbery is not a suspected motive. That's all they've released so far.

I know what I'm suspecting was the reason for this homicide. No further commentary.
I told the new me,
"Meet me at the bus station and hold a sign that reads: 'Today is the first day of the rest of your life.'"
But the old me met me with a sign that read: "Welcome back."

I have noticed some confusion in other posts about this in other forums and just to clarify for readers here it is NOT the FPSRussia guy himself who talks with the faux Russian accent and shoots guns but his manager who was found executed.

Very sad indeed. I hope they get to the bottom of it.
