    FPSRussia Manager found shot dead

    CURRENT INFO
    UPDATE + MORE INFO: The Manager's name is Keith Ratliff and he was found shot at FPS Industries in Franklin County Georgia. So far being ruled a homicide, the 32 year-old was killed by a gunshot wound to the head according to the GBI spokesmen. He leaves behind a wife, Amanda and a 2 year-old son, Keith. So far it seems the original bits that he was tied up are either not true or they are unwilling to share more details. >source<

    ORIGINAL POST(minus the video)

    Ok, just what the hell is going on with youtubers lately. First channels are being banned for no apparent reason and now the 3rd most popular channel's manager is found tied up and shot in the back of the head. Wanna know the really messed up bit? They made a goddamn clip of that very thing happening for the channel.

    *removed video as it's confusing people*

    Damn crazy people.

    EDIT: Just to clarify, this is the MANAGER that was killed, he's behind the scenes. The one who shoots all the guns is still alive.
    EDIT 2 : To clarify a bit more, this video was made back in November. This video was NOT made afterwards. From speculation, this video was used as a sort of "template" for his death.

    Also makes me wonder if there is a comspiracy going on and not just about gun rights but a sutble and systematic lockdown on american freedoms. Everything will be either expalined away like the youtube channels were "not conforming to stardards set down by youtube" or something like that. I'll bet that this is the last time we hear about this murder but if not it will be seriously downplayed or they will say something like he was willfully participating in illegal activity and it went wrong. BLACK HELICOPTERS!

    Guess people didn't click on the link in the description below, huehue. Really though, I don't follow many youtubers but whenever I did I always enjoyed FPSRussia more than most. Sad news indeed.

    this is the 2nd most well known gunplayer to die in the last few days. John Noveske died in a car crash that is suspicious http://militarytimes.com/blogs/gears.../john-noveske/

    It sounds like there is a group of vigilantes out there taking down some major players in the guns race in the wake of all the gun violence in 2012 to me

    Why is the John Noveske thing suspicious? I've seen that said a couple times but even the link you gave has nothing about it being suspicious.

    click the link ignore the video. The video is just something he did recently, and apparently he died in a similar format.

    The manager was killed. Not FPSRussia.

    I'm going to have to edit that bit in so it doesn't confuse people further :\

    He died in a car accident, simple as that. They are just speculating since 2 people that have something in common both died so it must be related since they knew eachother.

    So... /tinfoilhat time then? I mean if it continues it might be something to look into but people die all the time and unless there is reason to believe the car collision was intentional...

    So, a manager from a YouTube channel got shot in the head and the channel made a video about it?

    I'm not sure I follow this quite well.

    They made(released) the video in November I believe and the way they found him was the same way that he was tied up in the video. So kinda like they saw the video AND happen to hate the guy enough to re-create it just for their own sick amusement is my guess.

    Weapon manager, not manager.

    He was found dead, this was confirmed, there is no official source yet on "being tied and shot in the back of the head", this came out from a random guy on topix.

    And btw, it seems that it is not him on the video, as some believe, even if this is a video made by the youtube channel for which he was "weapon manager".
