The suspect of the July 4th shooting in Parkland heights, Illinois has been apprehended.
Robert “Bobby” Crimo has been taken under police custody after allegedly shooting and killing six people at a July 4th parade in Illinois.
According to investigators the evidence that lead to his arrest was one of his music videos which depicted him shooting up schools and another video that showed him sitting in front of a newspaper that read “Oswald Slain In Jail Shift”.
As most of you know Lee Harvey Oswald was the man who reportedly killed JFK, however, before his death, Oswald said he was just a “patsy”.
Take a look at a screenshot of the video here:
Oswald reportedly shot JFK from a five-story building and Crimo reportedly shot his victims from a higher angle too.
However many believe JFK was killed by the CIA for exposing Operation Northwoods a year earlier whereas Crimo is believed to be a young adult who had mental issues but many internet users believe Crimo was a victim of MK Ultra due to his zombie-like state while committing the attacks.
"Like a sleepwalker, I am unable to stop and think… My actions will be valiant and my thought is unnecessary. I know what I have to do, I know what's in it, not only for me, but for everyone else."#mkultra much?#HighlandPark#BobbyCrimohttps://t.co/xvcdZ0enH2

In another video, a newspaper headline in the background details the murder of Lee Harvey Oswald, the alleged sniper who killed Kennedy. Crimo also killed from a sniping position. pic.twitter.com/fyYdgidMsl

NEW: In addition to posting videos appearing to threaten to shoot people & with a Lee Harvey Oswald newspaper, the Highland Park shooter posted a video blaring the emergency alert system sound which I’ve determined is a video of the July 4th parade route.https://t.co/Q5VR6OfJkr

The Washington Examiner had more on the story:
The person of interest in the deadly shooting at an Independence Day parade in Highland Park, Illinois, appears to have shared public videos that preview his desire to commit acts of violence, including one video showing himself driving along the parade route where the mass shooting took place.
Robert “Bobby” E. Crimo III, the 22-year-old person of interest, was taken into custody by law enforcement in nearby Lake Forest, Illinois, in the early evening on Monday. As of press time, law enforcement said they believe Crimo is responsible for the shooting but have not labeled him a suspect nor levied charges. A “significant amount of digital evidence” helped lead investigators to zero in on the person of interest, Lake County Major Crime Task Force spokesman Christopher Covelli said when announcing the arrest.
A video dubbed “Project Arcturus” — Arcturus is the name of a red giant star named for a Greek myth — shows a drawing of someone wearing a helmet and straps across their back and chest gunning people down with a rifle. In the drawing, one person is on their knees with their hands up, while multiple dead bodies are on the ground. Crimo shows himself wearing a similar helmet and outfit in the video. In the same video, Crimo repeatedly shows what appears to be himself in his bedroom with an “Oswald Slain in Jail Shift” newspaper hanging on the wall above him. Lee Harvey Oswald assassinated President John F. Kennedy in 1963.
