Vester Lee Flanagan II (aka Bryce Williams) killed his two cats before his live TV murders

Vester Lee Flanagan II (aka Bryce Williams) killed his cats before killing two television journalists on live TV. I guess you have heard about the murders as it is world news and in every newspaper. To murder on live television was a USA first and it took US gun homicides to a new dimension. He filmed his murders with a video camera attached to his head.

“Bryce Williams” was Flanagan’s television or on-air name. We are told by the Telegraph newspaper that they have exclusive pictures of Flanagan’s apartment. The apartment looks sparse. There is a large pool of cat urine on the kitchen floor. It is covered by a towel. There were cat feces on the balcony.

Flanagan’s suicide note stated that he killed his two cats in a forest. He probably did it not long before murdering the two television journalists: WDBJ reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward.

Flanagan was gay and he felt persecuted and discriminated against. It seems his cats were indoor cats. It is interesting that he kept two cats. It is difficult to judge but cat lovers may question why there was a pool of cat urine in the kitchen and feces on the balcony. The feces were smeared on, apparently.

I am going to have a guess at what happened. The urination and defecation were as a result of violence against the cats in his apartment. Flanagan said he killed his cats in a forest but perhaps he killed them in his apartment and buried them in the forest (although see below).

Either way it is extremely sad and distressing. Why did he have to kill his cats? There were totally innocent creatures. He could have relinquished them to a shelter; done the decent thing. He can’t have valued their lives highly enough. They were disposable. This is the mentality that causes cat overpopulation in the USA.

A “source” said that Flanagan had a habit of throwing cat sh*t onto the balconies of neighbors who were men in his apartment block. He was nice to women but had anger management problems in relation to men. If that is the case perhaps someone threw it back onto his balcony accounting for the smeared feces there. Or he had it on his hands after throwing it and had deposited it from his hands onto his balcony.

  1. You’re talking about a deranged mentality that murdered 2 humans on tv. I don’t think you can compare that to “the mentality that causes cat overpopulation in the US”. You don’t think that is a stretch?
    Yes, he could have taken them to a shelter, but again, do you really think a person in his state of mind is caring about the life of his cats and would have interaction with shelter staff? At most he could have tossed them outside perhaps in his deranged state. But most likely he was in the mood to murder.

    Sorry, but you never publish any of my posts so I’m sure this one will not get published either. Most of your blog is so interesting, on rare occasions I have to disagree. This time you have gone a little overboard.

      • Dee, I am not bashing America. I am commenting on the news. It is well known and factual that there is cat overpopulation in the US and mass killings by the millions annually. To mention it is not bashing.

        Also the very high rate of gun homicides in the USA (far higher than any other advanced nation) is also well-known worldwide and Barack Obama refers to it quite often and is clearly ashamed of it.

        If an American had written what I have written you wouldn’t call it America bashing.

        • Agree. You are right.

          I feel badly for people who are offended by the truth and go into a protective mode. My pathology.

          In reality, I don’t believe in “political correctness” at all. Anyone should have the right to express their opinions anytime, anywhere without reprisal. Opinions don’t even have to have any bit of truth at all.

          It’s tiring to walk on eggshells. I refuse.

    • Well, perhaps I am wrong. But we don’t know how deranged he was. You say he was deranged mentally. He was not insane by the look of it. He did not value his cat’s lives.

      I always publish all comments. The only comments I don’t publish are pure spam and those of Woodsman001 (“Woody”) aka Jim Stephenson. So I don’t understand what you mean about not publishing your posts.

  2. Flanagan was a professional victim. He never took personal responsibility. He felt his life was screwed up and he had absolutely no problem spreading the misery around. Too bad he didn’t go into the forest and kill himself instead.

  3. Could only read a portion and no comment.
    My stance has always been, if you want do yourself in, go for it; but, leave other entities alone.
