Police arrested Robert ‘Bobby’ Crimo III’, age 22, yesterday following the shooting in Highland Park, Illinois. Crimo murdered seven individuals and injured over 30 moreat the 4th of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois.
On Tuesday The Gateway Pundit uncovered information indicating Crimo is a radical progressive with ties to Antifa, progressive groups, and the occult.
Looking over information that was collected following the deadly shooting, it is evident the Highland Park 4th of July parade killer, Bobby Crimo, has a very dark background.
Crimo created demonic video and bloody artwork depicting mass murder.
On Tuesday morning Highland Park police announced that Crimo was wearing women’s clothing during the attack.
The local police were at his residence twice in 2019, once for a suicide attempt and once to remove knives because of his threats to murder his family.
Sgt. Christopher Covelli of the Lake County Major Crimes Task Force told reporters on Tuesday that police had been at his home one time after he was threatening to kill family members. Police removed 16 knives, a dagger and a sword!
Highland Park police says they had two prior encounters with the shooter:

Crimo was able to purchase 5 firearms even after police removed knives and a sword from his home.
The red flag laws failed in this case.
Despite all of the warning signs Robert Crimo’s uncle told reporters, “I saw no warning signs.”
The Independent reported:
His uncle Paul Crimo expressed his condolences to the families of those who died and said that there was no way he could have seen this coming, according to Fox 32 Chicago.
“I saw no signs of trouble. And if I did see signs I would have said something,” Mr Crimo said, adding that he and his brother were “very well known” in the Highland Park area.
The 22-year-old man was arrested around 6.30pm following a chase in the north suburbs, Highland Park police chief Lou Jogmen said, more than eight hours after the shooting.
He was taken into custody without incident, and no charges were filed as of Monday evening as police continue to investigate the matter.
Mr Crimo said he saw his nephew on Sunday but did not notice anything out of the ordinary. He added that he saw nothing that could have triggered him.
He described the man as a YouTube rapper and an artist who mostly kept to himself.
The man, who is also called Bobby, lived in an apartment in the back of his home in Highwood, north of Highland Park.
