Cult YouTube gun channel boss found shot dead on rural Georgia road
Daily Mail ^ | January 8, 2013 | By DAILY MAIL REPORTER

An operator of a highly popular YouTube channel dedicated to high-powered guns and explosives was found mysteriously shot to death, authorities said.

Keith Ratliff, who was a business partner at FPSRussia, YouTube's ninth most popular channel with more than three million active subscribers and a combined half billion views, was discovered on a rural road in Carnesville, Georgia.

Ratliff had a single gunshot wound the head and police are treating his death as a homicide.

When authorities made the grisly discovery on Thursday, they noticed there were several guns near Ratliff, according to a local radio station report.

'For him not to pull out that gun and try to defend himself, he had to feel comfortable around somebody. Either that or he was ambushed,' said Ratliff's heartbroken widow, Amanda.

Maybe he knew something about Sandy Hook. Something the media could find out if there wasn’t a complete and total blackout on Sandy Hook by the media. Nary a peep.

At this point I don’t know. Hadn’t heard about this until about an hour ago.

How about his home being in Kentucky? The journalism schools have turned out a bunch of bumbling idiots. What a pathetic state the media is in today.

WTF? The last story I read the guy was tied up in his office with a gunshot to the back of the head. Now he’s on the side of the road?

Good catch. Remember the crappy and confusing reporting from Sandy Hook? So much false flag crap thrown against the wall, that Fox News kept correcting itself/news reports every 15-20mins.

I heard this on the radidio a couple of days ago and I thought they said it was FPSRussia. Kyle hasn’t posted anything to his YouBoob in a week, that isn’t really unusal, but it will be interesting to see if he has an opinion about this.

Interesting, thanx for the post.

So true. Here where I live they first reported that the Sandy Hood shooter died with 3 shots to the back of the head and then it was 1 shot to the back of the head then it was he shot his way through the doors. Now, he got in with out breaking glass. So, what is it.

ALL of the disinfo and ‘confirmations’ that Fox was reporting was coming directly from doj. They mentioned that doj was their source several times. How did doj, which wasn’t there, have all this info, all of it wrong, before the locals ever said a word?

We didn’t watch much cable TV and listened to local and radio local news. Our son called us about the shooting. We didn’t even know about it since we were working a long schedule. He was telling us all sorts of stories that he was hearing in another state. Someone here on this site, shared a story and link to a police officer(former police officer maybe) being interviewed on radio who is questioning all of the evidence that he has been told about this case.

Did you know that one of the ‘relatives’ who claimed to be an uncle of one of the dead children was discovered to be an actor from out of town who didn’t even know the family he was claiming to speak for? Yet he appeared on all the networks and some of the morning shows faking tears calling for gun control...meanwhile telling off color jokes, laughing and having a good time offstage.

I didn’t know any of this.

Mercy, what a terrible thing of this person/actor to do.

“Cult”?! The marxist media’s pejorative term for “popular” for their enemies...

There’s still YT film of 2 add’l shooters being chased into woods behind school, ‘proned-out’, and led-out past crowd. Both disappeared; one apparently was a curious neighbor, but the other never ID’d. Exact weapons usage is still unclear. Still much suppressed evidence, as with Aurora, Sikh Temple and other shootings.

Worst reporting I’ve ever seen; even more confusing than the first few hours of 9-11-01.
