Keith Ratliff was probably guns number one fan! Not only did he collect them but he had them all around his live. Everything from bullets in his cup holder to stickers on the back of his car.
His deep love for guns made him grow a huge online following. Mostly though his videos on YouTube page which grew to the sites ninth largest with just about 3.5 million subscribers. His YouTube channel is called FPSRussia
The story from here gets tough to swallow. Mr. Ratliff at the age of 32 was found by the northeast Georgia police with a single gun shot to the head laying surrounded by a numerous amount of guns from his collection. The crazy thing is none of the guns that he was surrounded him actually shot him. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is treating this as a homicide
“We are interviewing people of interest, but we have not named a suspect,” said the Franklin County sheriff, Stevie Thomas. “We are not ruling out any options.”
Amanda, his wife said…
“For him not to pull out that gun and try to defend himself, he had to feel comfortable around somebody…Either that or he was ambushed.”
Mr. Ratliff’s videos, were done along with his friend Kyle Myers, Kyle would talk for a few minutes and that would be followed by them shooting things such as hay bales or photographs of Justin Bieber. Each video ended with some sort of big bang!
The police say Mr. Ratliff was last seen alive at 7 p.m. on Jan. 2. The next night, the police found him dead inside the business, FPS Industries.
Kyle who was his partner in the videos wrote to his 1.1 million Facebook followers…
“As many of you already know I lost a close friend this week,” he went on to say “I ask only that you show respect to the situation for the family’s sake.”
