“Omar Mateen spent the final two years of his life growing ever angrier at what he saw as the slaughter of Muslims overseas. In 2013, the twenty-nine-year-old security guard had been investigated by the F.B.I. for making statements in support of both Hezbollah and Al Qaeda to his co-workers at G4S, one of the largest private-security firms in the world. After his co-workers contacted the F.B.I., agents questioned Mateen several times and placed him under surveillance. During his second interview, Mateen admitted that he had made such statements, but the agency ultimately concluded that he was not a threat. On June 12, 2016, Mateen drove to the Pulse night club, in Orlando, and killed forty-nine people before being shot by police.”
Looks like the battered wife defense will be played.
