Police: Man Who Killed Himself Rather Than Commit A Mass Shooting Had Researched Gun Massacres

Jamiesfeast – A man who fatally shot himself at a Colorado amusement park last year had looked up information about mass shootings online.

In October, Diego Barajas Medina, 20, was discovered dead in a bathroom at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park. He had a handgun, explosives, and an AR-15-style weapon with him, as well as tactical gear and body armor. The sentence “I’m not a killer.” On the wall of the bathroom, “I just wanted to get in the cave” was written.

“Given how well he was prepared and how many weapons and other things he had, it almost seemed very likely that he planned to use them against the community.” At the time, Garfield County Sheriff Lou Vallario told the press, “He chose not to.”

A search of Mr. Medina’s phone and computer showed that he had “visited several sites discussing other mass shootings,” the sheriff’s office said in a Thursday press release.

It’s still not clear why Mr. Medina killed himself instead of carrying out what seemed to be a dangerous plan. The investigation did not find any reason for Diego to gather such a dangerous arsenal. It also did not explain what made him change his mind and why he did not carry out his plans, according to the press statement.

Officials say that Mr. Medina did not have any drugs or alcohol in his system when he died, even though alcohol was found next to his body.

Investigators say he went into the park alone, before it opened, before anyone else was there.

Officials told the Associated Press that Mr. Medina had no known connections to the park and that people who knew him said he was “a bit of a loner.”
