Texas shooter claimed to buy animals on Craigslist for ‘target practice,’ former colleague says

Alamogordo, New Mexico (CNN)Texas church shooter Devin Kelley claimed he bought animals on Craigslist with the sole intention of killing them, a former Air Force colleague told CNN.

The morbid admission came in Facebook messages starting in 2014, Edwards said, after the two reconnected in civilian life. Though Edwards can’t say whether Kelley was telling the truth, the odd behavior was enough for her to stop communicating with him.

Edwards said Kelley also displayed a fascination with mass murders while he was enlisted in the Air Force.
    “He would make jokes about wanting to kill somebody,” Edwards recalled. “And we would say, ‘wait, that’s not funny.'”
    The obsession was so pronounced, Edwards said, that when Kelley was disciplined for poor performance she told her bosses to “back off or he would shoot the place up.”
    A law enforcement source close to the Texas shooting investigation confirmed to CNN that FBI agents interviewed Edwards about her interactions with the gunman.

    ‘Problem after problem’

    “He was always getting into trouble,” Edwards said of Kelley. “It was problem after problem.”
    In 2012, Kelley was court-martialed and convicted for assaulting his wife and stepson. Edwards said those domestic problems boiled over on the job and Kelley would come in depressed and unfocused.

    “He threatened to kill himself one time if I didn’t let him go see a chaplain,” Edwards said. As a staff sergeant, Edwards says she supervised Kelley.
    The US Air Force confirmed to CNN that Edwards was at Holloman Air Force Base at the same time as Kelley, but did not confirm whether she worked with him.
    Edwards said that “everything that could be done was done” for Kelley. In addition to regular sessions with a chaplain, she says Air Force officials referred him to the mental health office.
    In the days since Kelley’s shooting massacre, the Air Force has been criticized for failing to notify federal law enforcement officials of Kelley’s conviction. Had federal authorities been aware, Kelley should have been barred from legally purchasing the weapon he used in the Sutherland Springs, Texas, attack.

    While she feels she did what she could for Kelley — he once thanked her for “having his back” — she says she’s been thinking about those Facebook messages.
    After cutting off communication with Kelley, Edwards deleted their conversations and wrote the experience off as Kelley “talking weird like he always did.”
    “In a sane person’s mind, when people say something like that you don’t think it’s something they’re going to do,” she said.
    After the shooting, Edwards told the FBI about the messages in hopes they can be recovered from Kelley’s Facebook account.
    Before blocking Kelley from Facebook for good, Edwards said she gave him her phone number and said if he “found himself in a state of mind that he was going to hurt himself or someone else, to call me.”
    “I told him that,” she explained, “because at one point he told me that I was one of the only people… he could talk to that made him feel calm.”
    Her phone never rang.
    “It’s upsetting because you feel like we failed,” Edwards said. “But in reality we did everything we possibly could do.”
