Sikh Temple shooter used internet to strengthen beliefs


According to an unsealed FBI search warrant, the man responsible for killing six at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin used the internet to strengthen his white supremacist beliefs.

The documents show Wade Michael Page had connections with white power groups and his interest in conspiracy theories and online videos increased in the months leading up to the shooting. Although the warrant does not reveal what exactly Page was watching, it does say his girlfriend was disturbed by the content.

The FBI believes Page was alone in the attack and no white supremacist group was involved.

Six people were killed and four were injured before Page turned the gun on himself in the August 2012 shooting.
