What The Hell Is Going On Here? Shocking True Crime Stories

I woke up this morning to the news that six people were slain inside a Walmart store in Chesapeake, Virginia, before the accused gunman killed himself.

As I write this, the “why” of this story is still in question. However, several news outlets report the mass murderer was a “disgruntled employee.”

UPDATE: 11.23.22 @ 1:28 PM EST: AP is reporting the gunman who killed six people in a Chesapeake, Virginia, Walmart was a store manager.

An employee, Briana Tyler, tells Associated Press, that she and other members of the overnight stocking crew were gathered in the break room for a team meeting about an hour before the store closed.

Their team leader, Briana says, told the team that they had a light night ahead, and suddenly the manager opened fire.

“It is by the grace of God that a bullet missed me,” Briana said. “I saw the smoke leaving the gun, and I literally watched bodies drop. It was crazy.”

Not only is this story breaking the morning before Thanksgiving, but it follows Monday night’s mass murder inside a Colorado Springs bar that caters to the LGBTQ community. Five people were killed and 17 wounded before two club patrons wrestled the shooter to the floor.

Add to this last week’s quadruple homicide that claimed the lives of four University of Idaho students. Not only is this the story of another tragic mass murder, but it is also a brutal homicide without a suspect or a motive. In other words, we have no idea why this happened or who did it. All we know now is four students were stabbed to death while they slept.

And, of course, the Idaho mass murder followed by only a couple of days, the story of three University of Virginia football players shot to death on a UVA bus. For this story, the alleged shooter is in custody. But so far, I have not seen any reporting on why he might have pulled the trigger.

I have no answers as to why we’ve seen such an outbreak of violence this month, but I ask, “What the hell is going on here?”

One more note. This is the point in my blog posts where I show a link to buy one of my books.

Today, I just can’t do that.

Instead, I will only add that anyone with information about Moscow, Idaho, murders is asked to call 208-883-7180 or go to
