Keith Ratliff, Slain FPSRussia Gun Advocate, ‘Not Tied Up,’ Georgia Police Says
Georgia police are refuting claims that slain YouTube gun activist Keith Ratliff was found bound and murdered on a rural road.
Ratliff — the victim of a single gunshot wound to the head — was found Jan. 3 in an apparent homicide at the weapons development and testing facility he operated in Carnesville, Ga.
“He was not tied up,” Mike Ayers, Georgia Bureau of Investigations special agent, told The Huffington Post.
Ayers also confirmed that Ratliff’s death “took place at the business,” rather than outdoors near a highway.
Both apparently false reports circulated Wednesday, one week after Ratliff was last seen alive. The 32-year-old was discovered unresponsive and a coroner pronounced him dead at about 6:30 p.m. Jan. 3, officials said.
