On Thursday, police identified the shooter in the Elkhart shooting that took place in an Indiana super market. The Elkhart shooting killer was named by Indiana State Police as Shawn Walter Bair. Disturbing facts are beginning to come to the surface regarding Bair.
The Inquisitr reported on Thursday that Bair, 22, walked into Martin’s Super Market in Elkhart, IN and shot two women. One was an employee, 20, and another was a customer, 44. Shawn Walter Bair was shot and killed by Elkhart police while trying to flee the scene.
While not all the details have been released in the reason for Bair entering the store and opening fire, a quick look at his Facebook page reveals some dark secrets. The Elkhart shooting killer was a fan of Serial Killer Central, the Insane Clown Posse, the NRA, and apparently God.
In a disturbing post from August 2011, then just a teenager, Bair wrote:
“I HOPE YOU ALL BURN IN THE FURTHEST PITS OF HELL I HOPE THE TORTURE LASTS FOREVER AND EVERY SECOND OF EVERY MINUTE YOUR THINKING ABOUT YOUR LOVED ONES. EVERYONE WILL PASS THROUGH TORTURE RACKS MADE OF BONE WITH RAZOR BLADES MADE FROM FIRE I WILL BE PICASSO WITH A FIRE RAZOR BLADE BENEATH MY FINGERS”
Just a few days later he also posted:
“I MAY BE GOING TO HELL BUT ATLEAST I’M GOING HONEST AND YOU KNOW WHAT THATS ALL I’VE EVER BEEN YOU LOOK AT ME AND SEE THIS FREAK I SEE A GOD BECAUSE I EMBRACE MY F—– UP SIDE AND WHEN I’M IN HELL I HOPE YOU PASS THROUGH MY RACK HAVE FUN WITH THAT AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA”
Of course Facebook does not reveal everything about a persons life or what they believe. But photos from Shawn Bair’s page reveal someone who was struggling with dark thoughts.
The Elkhart native grew up around Martin’s Super Market. He was known by the employees and even recognized when he entered the store. It is unclear whether Shawn Walter Bair entered the store with a plan, but the Elkhart shooting killer’s Facebook page gives a look into a trouble young mind.
