Here is the latest news related to the Orlando mass shooting:
- The shooter’s ex-wife has spoken out. Sitora Yusufiv described her ex-husband killer as being abusive and having serious mental and emotional issues. She described Mateen and their relationship: “In the beginning he was a normal being that cared about family, loved to joke, loved to have fun, but then a few months after we were married I saw his instability… I saw that he was bipolar, and he would get mad out of nowhere. That’s when I started worrying about my safety…. He started abusing me physically, very often, and not allowing me to speak to my family, keeping me hostage from them… (My family) had to pull me out of his arms and find an emergency flight…. I made a police report.”
- In addition, Paul Wysopal, the FBI Special Agent in Charge of the investigation clarified earlier reports that there were 50 victims; there were, in fact, 49 victims. The 50th person killed was the gunman, not another victim.
