Wisconsin Gunman Wade Michael Page's Ex-Girlfriend Arrested

Police say they have arrested the former girlfriend of the gunman who allegedly shot and killed six people in a Sikh temple after authorities found a gun in the home they once shared.

Milwaukee police released a statement on Tuesday after the arrest of Misty Cook, saying, "In a joint investigation with the FBI, the South Milwaukee Police Department has arrested Misty Cook on the crime of felon in possession of a firearm. Charges will be sought through the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office."

A federal law enforcement official told ABC News that Cook was taken into custody on the grounds that she is prohibited from having a gun as a convicted felon. Cook was charged in 2002 for fleeing and eluding a traffic officer.

There's no indication she was involved with the attack. Much like her ex-boyfriend, according to the Anti-Defamation League, Cook was involved in white supremacy.


Wonder how many people that knew the shooter had their homes, cars, garages and gym lockers searched? Bet a lot of white supremacy people there have had a late spring cleaning.

One has to be careful in choosing friends and relationships. Their behavior could put you under the microscope.

According to the professor interviewed in the video, the shooter claimed he came to his "white supremicist" beliefs while in the Army. I am just waiting to see if any spin comes off that. Seems too good for some to pass up.
