In the days and weeks before authorities say he shot three students at the Florida State University library and was then gunned down Tallahassee police, Myron May took to Facebook to post Bible verses and a video about mind control.
“Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. ~ Matthew 5:3” was May’s last message, posted just before 8 p.m. on Tuesday.
But earlier in the week he posted an image of a Google business card with the words “Targeted individual.”
He also posted a conspiracy theory video of former professional wrestler and Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura interviewing a man who claims to have created technology that allows the federal government to control people’s minds.
“IS OUR GOVERNMENT VIOLATING ORDINARY CITIZENS' RIGHTS? UNFORTUNATELY, THE ANSWER IS YES! SEE INSIDE THIS VIDEO,” May posted.
May is smiling and wearing a suit and bow tie in his profile picture. May’s Facebook page says he grew up in Dayton, Ohio, studied economics at FSU and went to law school at Texas Tech University. He posted that he moved to Wewahitchka, Florida on Nov. 6.
Over the summer, he made several posts about loved ones dying, and on July 30 noted that he spent “part of my weekend in the ER. I’m good. No worries. But that was scary.”
On June 27, he shared an image about “invisible illness” that reads: “It’s hard to explain to someone who has no clue. It’s a daily struggle being in pain and feeling sick on the inside while you look fine on the outside.”
