Christy seems far more disturbed than in years past.

The home of Dakota Meyer was broken into sometime today and a vehicle was stolen from the property. Local, state and federal law enforcement agents are currently on the scene.
Meyer, a Medal of Honor recipient, has been in the sights of a fugitive who was believed to be in the area earlier this week. Federal agents have been searching for Shawn Richard Christy, 27, of Pennsylvania. They believe Christy stole a vehicle that was found Saturday night not far from Meyer’s residence near the Adair/Green county line.
Christy has threatened to kill President Trump and others, and also said he would kill any law enforcement that got in his way.
Later this article was updated with this:
According to Kentucky State Police, security footage shows that Shawn Christy is the person who broke into Dakota Meyer’s house sometime today. Around 6:23 p.m. Meyer’s brother, Timothy Gilliam, arrived home to find the front door kicked in. Local police and Kentucky State Police were called and cleared the home. They discovered that someone had stolen food from a refrigerator and taken a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a black hood from a detached garage. Gilliam showed troopers surveillance videos and it appears that the suspect is Shawn Christy who recently has made threats to President Trump and Dakota Meyer. The U.S. Marshal Service continues to lead the manhunt investigation. The burglary and stolen vehicle investigations are being led by Trooper Chase Willis.
There was also a report courtesy of the Courier-Journal that Christy had also broken into the home of Dakota’s brother:
The man accused of threatening to shoot President Donald Trump was last seen Thursday afternoon in West Virginia driving a Jeep stolen in Kentucky, the FBI said Friday.
The FBI released surveillance photos of the man they believe is Shawn Christy, 27, driving east on Interstate 64 in Huntington, West Virginia, in a green 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Kentucky State Police said Christy stole the Jeep from the Adair County home of Timothy Gilliam, the brother of Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer. Christy is accused of threatening Meyer, as well as other public officials.
I actually interviewed Shawn Christy several years ago when all he was accused of was some harassing phone calls and showing up on Palin property unannounced.
At that time he sounded more confused than psychotic, but clearly, his mental health has deteriorated since.
I certainly hope that the police find Christy before he hurts anybody, or before anybody hurts him.
Mentally ill people need therapy and medications, not to be gunned down in the streets.
