The day he was murdered,famed Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle knew that something wasn’t right with the nutcase he was trying to help, the man he and a pal had taken shooting with them. And now we are seeing some of the texts he sent proving how worried he was that the man who was about to murder him was up to no good.
The trial is now under way for the man who murdered the SEAL who was the subject of the new blockbuster movie American Sniper. And we are finding out some of what the court is hearing.
The New York Post reported these eerie texts from Kyle the day he died…
In the hours before they died, both men were worried about the stranger they were taking shooting, text messages will show.
“He’s sitting right behind me. Watch my six,” Littlefield replied in a return text to his buddy, using military parlance for “Watch my back.”
In the year before the tragedy, Routh had been drinking heavily and smoking marijuana, and was prone to fits of paranoia, violence and uncontrollable crying, the defense says.
During the last car ride of his life, the real-life sniper texted his friend and fellow veteran, Chad Littlefield, about Routh, the edgy ex-Marine in the back seat of their car — “This dude is straight up nuts.”
Kyle and Littlefield had taken the distraught Routh to the shooting range on Feb. 2, 2013, to help him through his post-traumatic stress, on the request of Routh’s worried mother.
For his part, the murderer, one Eddie Ray Routh, is claiming he is not guilty because on his mental condition.
