Almost one week after the horrific mass shooting which targeted the LGBT community and left 49 people dead officials have become ” skeptical” of unconfirmed reports that Omar Mateen was bisexual or gay and closeted:
Federal law enforcement officials said Thursday that the F.B.I. is increasingly skeptical of reports that Mr. Mateen was gay but “closeted,” that he had been visiting gay clubs or that he had used gay dating apps. The bureau has recovered the Samsung phone he used the night of the attack, and is trying to retrieve data from it.
No profiles for Mateen have been found on any gay dating apps such as Grindr, Adam4Adam or Jack’d despite claims by some that they had seen Mateen on the gay sex sites.
Chris Hayes of MSNBC’s All In With Chris Hayes broke the story earlier this week without any substantial evidence to prove any of the accusations.
