A white supremacist, covered in Nazi-inspired tattoos, has been convicted of killing three of his friends and shooting a fourth in Woodland, Washington.
37-year-old Brent Luyster shot and killed his best friend Zachary David Thompson, 36, his friend Joseph LaMar, 38, and LaMar’s partner, Janell Renee Knight, 43, at his friend Joseph LaMar’s house in the southeast of Woodland in Washington State. He also shot another friend in the face, however, she was able to survive and later identify Luyster as the perpetrator.
The prosecutors believe that Luyster shot his friends because he was upset at earlier felony charges made against him.
“We can’t know the defendant’s thought process. But we do know that he was stressed, that he was unhappy, that he was concerned, and we know that he was drinking,” The deputy prosecutor said.
Luyster was found guilty of: three counts of aggravated murder, one count of attempted murder, and two counts of unlawful possession of a weapon.
