The FBI found printouts containing addresses of synagogues and kosher eateries in the home of Kansas City shooting suspect Frazier Glenn Miller.
Miller — who is also known as Frazier Glenn Cross — is accused of killing three people on April 13 outside the Overland Park JCC and the nearby Village Shalom senior facility.
During their search of Miller’s home in Aurora, Missouri, located about 200 miles from Kansas City, FBI agents found anti-Semitic paraphernalia, including a copy of “Mein Kampf” and a book Miller had written titled “A White Man Speaks Out.”
They also found a user’s manual for a shotgun, three boxes of ammunition, and a computer printout with directions to area synagogues and kosher eateries and the details of a Kansas City-area talent contest.
Miller is charged with two counts of capital murder in the killings outside the JCC of William Corporon, 69, and his grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood, 14, and one count of first-degree murder in the killing of Terri LaManno, 53, who was at the senior center visiting her mother. None of the victims were Jewish.
The next court hearing in the case is scheduled for May 29.
US President Barack Obama said last week that the Kansas City shootings were a reminder that Americans must come together to reject intolerance.
In a proclamation issued for Jewish heritage month, Obama said “Jewish communities continue to confront anti-Semitism — both around the world and, as tragic events mere weeks ago in Kansas reminded us, here in the United States.”
