The devastating news regarding the horrific Orlando attack continues to get worse and more disturbing as the days go by. The latest development involves text messages reportedly sent between Omar Mateen and his wife during the massacre that left 49 people dead.
According to CNN, during the fatal attack at the nightclub Pulse, Mateen was allegedly sending text messages back and forth to Noor Salman. This disturbing new information further implicates her in the attack.
The full report reads:
Around 4 a.m. on June 12, about two hours after he started the attack and while holed up in a bathroom, Omar Mateen texted his wife, Noor Salman, asking if she’d seen the news, the official said.
At one point, she responded with a text saying that she loved him. Salman also tried calling her husband several times during the standoff, a second law enforcement official said.
The timing of her calls came after reports of the attack had emerged, and apparently after she realized her husband might be responsible. He didn’t answer, the official said.
As the U.S. Attorney continues to gather evidence against Salman to bring before the federal grand jury to determine if charges will be filed, she has also given several conflicting statements detailing just how much she knew about her husband’s plans.
The couple married back in 2011 and reportedly were estranged during select periods of time. They also have a 3-year-old son.
