Gunman in Sikh temple attack was white supremacist
OAK CREEK, Wisconsin (AP) - The gunman who killed six worshippers at Sikh temple in the United States was a failed soldier who played in white supremacist heavy metal bands with names such as Definite Hate and End Apathy, according to police, public records and interviews.
Yet his motive remained largely a mystery and police suggested investigators might never know why he targeted a temple full of strangers.
Wade Michael Page, who was shot to death by police, was a bald and heavily tattooed 40-year-old US Army veteran who trained in psychological warfare before he was demoted and discharged more than a decade ago.
A day after his attack on the suburban Milwaukee temple, fragments of Page's life emerged in public records and interviews. But so far, no hate-filled manifesto has emerged, nor any angry blog or ranting Facebook entries to explain the attack.
