New information is being released [about Robert Lewis Dear] offering a glimpse into the life and history of the shooter.
BuzzFeed was able to speak with one of Dear’s neighbors who elaborated on an encounter with him while retrieving his two dogs who got loose in his yard. “We were there for a minute and the guy was already handing us anti-Obama pamphlets,” Zigmond Post said. Post went into further detail, explaining how Dear would blame Obama for the problems in the country and pushed for his impeachment. Quoting Dear, Post noted he said, “Obama was ruining the country and needed to be impeached.”
Dear’s name and town of residence match-up with a voting profile listed in the public records, but the gender is marked as female. Those records are assumed to be a misprint in the gender box, but are currently under investigation. Police records also show Dear has been investigated at least nine times for various crimes, including but not limited to animal cruelty to spying on women. It’s unknown whether or not Dear’s political leanings were the cause of the incident, and more information will be released when it is made available to the public.
