Item: Hayden man: Suspected museum gunman angry, violent: James W. von Brunn briefly resided in Hayden/Meghann M. Cuniff, SR
More Info: The man accused of gunning down a security guard at the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday arrived in North Idaho more than four years ago eager to meet others with an anti-government agenda, an acquaintance said. But James W. von Brunn, 88, seemed obsessed with violence, angry about a stay in federal prison and fixated on guns, said Stan Hess, a Hayden resident since 2003. “He had some very bitter arguments about a lot of things because of the way he looked at the world,” Hess said Wednesday.
Question: Is it fair to tie Von Brunn to Hayden, if he lived in the area for only a few days before being kicked out of his temporary home?
