Eddie Routh’s attorney, J. Warren St. John, released the statement this afternoon:

Raymond and I want to express our deepest condolences to the Kyle and Littlefield families. We are incredibly heartbroken for your loss.

We wish we could thank Chris Kyle for his genuine interest in helping our son overcome his battle with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. We want others with PTSD to know their struggle is recognized and we hope his tragedy will somehow help in getting greater care for and assistance to those in need

No words can truly express the sorrow we feel for the Kyles and Littlefields, their extended family and friends. Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with you all.

-The Routh Family

    We make all of our sons the same when we send them off to war.
    Every son handles things in a different manner.
    It is a tragedy for everyone concerned.

    Yes an absolute tragedy for every one involved…. I pray the WHOLE truth does come to THE LIGHT…. every single detail and the smallest circumstance do matter. Though I respect the unfortunate causes of PTSD and its forever changed behavior it would be extremely more unfortunate if the prosecuting side doesn’t do their due diligence on this case. if for nothing more than to give Mr. Kyle and his family the absolute justice they so very much deserve.

    I fully support all Patriots on Earth who kill any US Troop that invades their Sovereign Nations.

    The only good US Troop inside another man’s Soveriegn Nation is a dead US Troop.

    Virtually every US President (except Carter) should be arrested, tried, convicted and then executed by the State as a War Criminal and Mass Murderer.

    Ps. I am a former US Marine who cheered when former US Marine Eddie Ray Routh killed that piece of shit Chris Kyle. That former US Marine was probably having a hard time in life because he felt guilty for what he did to the people of Iraq, while Chris Kyle celebrated being a Mass Murderer. Eddie Ray Routh probably saw these cocky evil sons of bitches (Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield) and decided he could at least try and make things right by killing those murderous sons of bitches who had no guilt over what they did to the Iraqi people. Thank you Eddie Ray Routh for bringing JUSTICE into our world.

    Hallow means to honor as holy. AMEN to that!

  • It’s Real America

    The entire situation is a tragic one for all the families involved. All the families are dealing with a great lose including the Routh family. This is another example of how real PTSD really is and how much our vets really need our help, love and support. There is so much more that we need to do to help our vets. My thoughts and prayers are with all involved.

My husband was so lovely and caring after 3years of marriage he was seriously ill and the doctor confirm and said he has a kidney infection that he needed a kidney donor, that was how I start searching for a good Samaritan who can help,doctor has given me a periodic hour that he will live just 26hours left, that was how I ask the doctor if I can be of help to my husband that was how he carried out the text,the confirming was successful, I was now having this taught that since 3 years now we got married I have not be able to get pregnant can I be able to get bring again? That was the question I ask the doctor, he never answer his response was did you want to lost your husband? I immediately reply no I can’t afford to loose him. After the operation my husband came back to live and was healthy I was also ok with the instruction given to me by the doctor, after 3months my husband came home with another lady telling me, that is our new wife that will give us kids and take care of us, that was how I was confused and started crying all day, that was how my husband ran away with his new wife cluaralle. Since then I was confuse don’t no what to do that was how I went back to the doctor and tell him everything, he told me that, this is not just an ordinary it must be a spiritual problem that was how he gave me this email ([email protected] ) that I should tell her all my problem that she can help that was how i contacted her and I do as instructed.

    Did Kyle have PTSD also? Was Kyle or Eddie Ray receiving a monthly PTSD check? what will happen to the check? will Eddie still get his check in prison? Will Kyles widow Taya get the check for Chris?

  • EasyThereSlick

    Fucking ridiculous. Routh claims to be insane and suffer from PTSD, and his family uses it as an excuse to throw all the guilt they feel about their disgraceful bastard son on to. HE NEVER SAW COMBAT. How the fuck can you claim PTSD severe enough to make you that crazy if you served as a weapons expert and never experienced combat? Disgraceful Fucking pussy.

    Too bad about no death penalty.

  • Rosey

    The Routh son took away a husband and father. Also a great AMERICAN HERO, who only wanted to keep us safe. He wanted to help his fellow soldiers and countrymen. Eddie Routh should be on death row. PTSD is a terrible illness, but it’s NOT an excuse for premeditated murder. There are a lot of military hero’s who suffer with the illness, that do not go out and kill.
