The Wisconsin man who opened fire at a Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee was drug-free when he shot six people before shooting himself in the head. KSTP reported on the results of a Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's toxicology report released Wednesday.
Wade Michael Page, 40, opened fire Aug. 5 before a service was to start. The white supremecist had a history of alcohol abuse and a pathologist said there were small amounts of alcohol in his heart. The report officially ruled his death a suicide.
In addition, the FBI Tuesday issued a statement saying the agency had concluded its investigation into the rampage and found no evidence that Page had help or was following orders from any white-supremacist group. The FBI also revealed that Page had several tattoos related to his beliefs, including the number 14 and the number 88 inked on his shoulders. In white-supremacist circles, "14" represents the 14 words in a popular skinhead mantra, while "8'' refers to "H'' as the eighth letter of the alphabet, with 88 regarded as shorthand for "Heil Hitler."
