It’s the dirty little secret behind the box office hit, “American Sniper!”
The movie’s hero, ex-Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, died due to a profound series of screw-ups by government officials who failed to adequately treat the veteran who killed him.
Chris, portrayed by Bradley Cooper, is the most lethal sniper in U.S. history, credited with 160 confirmed kills.
On Feb 2, 2013, he was shot and killed at a Texas gun range by Marine Corps. veteran Eddie Ray Routh, who was suffering from post traumatic stress disorder [PTSD].
Now The National ENQUIRER can reveal the truth behind what led Routh to kill the hero.
“I would say Routh was probably suffering from schizophrenia or maybe some major psychotic disorder PTSD exacerbated,” Dr. Mitch Abrams, Psy.D., told The ENQUIRER.
