Washington State Man Murdered His Wife and Pets, Then Tweeted to Blame the NRA, Trump, McConnell

From the Bellingham Herald: “The Bellingham man accused of fatally shooting his wife, who was a Bellingham elementary school principal, and their two pets Thursday morning may have admitted to killing his family in Twitter replies to the National Rifle Association, the President of the United States and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.”

Kevin Heimsoth is suspected of murdering his wife Lynn (with a handgun), their therapy dog and a cat, then attempting to commit suicide with a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He’s now in a local hospital.

While the Twitter account belonging to Kevin Heimsoth could not be verified by The Bellingham Herald or others at McClatchy, a number ofaspects point to it belonging to Kevin Heimsoth: The account is associated with email accounts and phone numbers that belong to him; the account associated with Lynn Heimsoth followed this account; she retweeted the account at least once.

The Twitter account that may have belonged to Kevin Heimsoth sent a series of four reply tweets shortly after 3 a.m. on Dec. 26 stating that the user shot and killed their wife and their dog.

According to the Daily Mail, Heimsoth then duplicated the same message, tweeting President Trump and Senate Majority Leader McConnell.

Heimsoth was apparently no fan of Trump, McConnell or the NRA.

          My wife (aka MY BEST FRIEND) and I care for a colony of feral cats, last count was 42, we trap them get them checked out get shots and spay/neuter then return them to the colony… We feed them daily with a mix of canned and dry (Purina), when the opportunity arises we get control of new liters and set up cages that the mother can enter to care for them but cannot remove them, at eight weeks they go to the vet and then we attempt to find good homes (not really that difficult) those that do not get placed stay with us and have the run of the house and a room full of “Cat Trees”, boxes to hide in and stuff to keep them busy.. They are a constant source of entertainment and will actually alert to noises before the dog does.. There are mornings when I have to move three or four cats just to get out of bed and there is always at least one lying on my lap watching TV.

        That comment is disturbing on a number of levls… You “GET” murdering the wife? Because, I guess some men are just too FUCKING STUPID to walk away from a “HARD” relationship? Killing a cat is PEST control? Cats kill rats, mice and other disease carrying vermin and if you live in an area with a heavy population of snakes (venomous or not) the presence of a few cats will keep the snakes away from your home. That you place a dogs life above that of another human being speaks volumes about you AND if you live in one of those “Red Flag” states you should really be careful about voicing that opion publicly, you could get an unwanted visit from local LE and who knows maybe one of them might share your mindset and is hoping for some resistance….

          WOW !!! You are one seriously disturbed individual. Where in the hell did you see me say ANYTHING about it being OK to murder his wife? PROJECTING much?
          It’s called “Crime of passion” for a reason. Even a child of 12 or 13, just beginning grasp the depth of human nature understands the concept. Even they “GET” how complex emotions between intimate partners could/would be a motivating factor in a murder suicide. No one said it was an acceptable act you fudking lunatic.

          As for pest control of cats, I clearly remember 40-50 years ago wakening to the daily cacophony of the dawn chorus of song birds. Sadly, due to the explosion of feral cats across the continent, that is mostly a thing of the past. Are you one of those irresponsible cat owners that let their intact toms run the neighborhood impregnating the feral females?
          PLEASE READ THIS

          AND, Did you even watch the video doc on the dog in question? My question was…What reason could the asshole had in his mind that would in any way justify killing that dog that was even more harmless than the proverbial “Harmless as a kitten, kitten”(please refer to link above about the dangers of kittens)

          If anyone here is out of line it is you suggesting that I should be RED FLAGGED. F U ASSHOLE !! You’re the kind of person that makes me prefer to be in the company of canines over humans.

          Oh, here let me tell you how I really feel.

          From your post on
          December 29, 2019 at 01:36
          “My wife (aka MY BEST FRIEND) and I care for a colony of feral cats, last count was 42”

          Just goes to show you ARE the proverbial “Crazy Cat Lady”. 

          The fact that you now have 42 wild predatory animals showing up at your door that you choose to bait for your personal entertainment shows you have little or no respect for the wildlife or the ecosystem in which you live. Cats are genetically predisposed to hunt, and no amount of food will stop the behavior. Cats will kill (and I assure you they are now) just because it is their nature to do so, hungry or not.  42 predators hunting from a centralized location of your back door is unsustainable by any stretch of the imagination. Tell me, when was the last time you saw a bird perched, or a rabbit or squirrel running in your neighborhood? Maybe there are a few left, but tell me what was the neighborhood like BEFORE you started keeping wild animals on your property? You are a loony living in a fantasy world of unicorns and rainbows if you can’t see the damage you and the colony are wrecking on the landscape. 

          in my best Greta Thunberg impersonation, “SHAME ON YOU”!!!

          So, go ahead and be mad at me for pissing on your little fantasy. Maybe you can go get some comfort from the snowflakes in their gun free “safety” zones, because you have a lot in common with your fanciful thinking that your efforts are having any positive effect.

        7. avatar MADDMAXX says:

          Sounds like you are the “MAD” one.. Those cats don’t come to my door, I don’t bait them, I particiate in a fuction with about 50 other concerned citizens that is regulated by our county to not only try to keep the feral cat population disease free by ensuring they have at least a rabies and feline leukemia shot and attempting to REDUCE the feral cat population by getting them spayed/neutered and keeping them in their habitat away from HATERS like you… I’ve seen six cats killed this year by obvious rat poisoning (not a pretty sight). You assumed that I keep feral cats on my property which once again lends to that lack of reading comprehension and shows your ignorance of these programs… There are 20+ feral colonies in the area all cared for by individuals at their own expense (food) and at reduced cost services provided by local vets with some financial help from the county for spay/neuter cost, resulting in no cases of rabies in our county for over 5 years and a humane reduction in feral cat population of over 25%. Of course haters like you can alwas just go out and shoot them or feed them rat poison or (a hater favorite) soak them in lighter fluid and burn them alive (bet you would enjoy that).. You are a sick fuck that would put a dogs life above a human being and you are pissed because you were called on it… And oh by the way, unlike the guy with the drill or the nail gun, you bet your ass I would do exactly what I said to that fuckbag, I would have NO qualms about sendng that piece of shit to his own personal hell for the rest of his natural life, beats the hell out of supporting his ass in prison for life, and there are many other degenerate shits that deserve the same thing… If you have a poblem with that then go fuck yourself… That being said I do NOT have to explain mysrelf to you or any one else and have actually carried this further than I really needed to. So, if I’ve pissed you off that’s too bad, you think I’m an asshole, you really have no idea just how much of an asshole I CAN be… So, just take your little butt-hurt self and fuck off because I could give a shit less how you “REALLY FEEL” Bye now.

          I know someone who tried to kill themselves with a 30-30 back in the late 70’s. He was unsuccessful but, did blow most of his lower jaw and chin off the left side of his face. Managed to live a mostly productive life afterwards. Only cowards take other lives with them. About 5 or 6 years ago a young girl waited on a train at a crossing with her dog. Then pulled in front of the train as it passed by. Taking her and the dogs life. Sick people should be afforded every opportunity to kill themselves if they wish. We need to remove the stigma of suicide and provide the place and tools necessary for people complete the job. If they so wish. As well as counseling if they want it. Much in the way it was portrayed in Soylent Green.

          Dark man,

          You need to read OATH OF FEALTY by Niven and Pournelle. A massive archology (entire city in one two mile by two mile by 1,000 foot high building) had a problem with suicidal people jumping off the roof. Their solution was fencing the entire perimeter except one gap where they installed a high diving board. Unfortunately; most suicidal people became to irate to jump. They also had an automated system to deploy a safety net. However; it did avert lawsuits.

        4. avatar Dan says:

          @Darkman but if people are actually sick shouldn’t we try to help them instead of just giving up on them and giving them the tools to waste themselves? I was about to agree with your statement of suicidal people killing others but then I just had the brilliant idea of giving those people suicide vests and sending them in to blow up terrorists kamikaze style. It’s alright for a truly suicidal person to take out others as long as they are taking out the right people. No innocent pets though. That’s just too cruel. Lol

        Being a surgeon specializing in facial trauma most attempted suicides with a firearm to the head fail because most do not have a good grasp of anatomy and also grossly overestimate the size of the brain. As such most miss the vital goodies and take off some pieces of face and some teeth.

This is a very selective and using the words of a self professed murderer aligned with his criminal acts to sway opinions or degrade recipients. Recipients do not control content sent to them and can only take action after the fact. Several Serial Killers and bombers have sent correspondence to news organizations and that never equates to recipient defamation but watch the accusatory shrill apply the blame game on this one.

    Maddmaxx, thank you for taking care of God’s creatures.

    As for you, Mr Bradford, take a chill pill and read up on the
    Black Plague. A twenty-six page article and not a single positive
    attribute contributed to the feline.

    This from the reportee, “Scientists estimate that between 60 and 160 million feral cats roam the United States.”

    From grawker.com article, “The United States is home to over 318 million people and 2.27 billion acres of land. By 2003, we had only developed about 108 million acres, or about 4.47% of the total land area of the United States. The map above is a great way to visualize that unused land — the areas highlighted in green show all of the U.S. Census blocks that show a population of zero.”

    Ms Meiners, did not do her home work but rather relied upon “scientests” for
    what I suspect to be faulty estimates. It would represent at minimum .6 of a
    kat per acre or as high as 1.6 kat per acre. With a density as such, it would
    make seeing a kat almost a daily occurrence.

    More disinformation from the reporter, Ms Meiners.

    “3. Outdoor cats kill between 1.4 billion and 3.7 billion songbirds every year

    From the treehugger.com:

    “Biologist Melanie Driscoll, from the National Audubon Society, estimates that a whopping 5 billion birds die every year in the United States — equating to roughly 13.7 million birds dying every day. The causes of these deaths, of course, are varied; millions of bird die of ‘natural’ causes, according to a government led study, but there are plenty of factors keeping them from that demise, many of which are close to home. One report indicates that as many as 39 million birds a year in the US are killed by rural cats alone.”

    Ms Driscoll, who is a biologist and not a student [Taliban] adds more to the subject.

    “Such factors driving bird deaths remain, for the most part, unreported particularly among the mainstream media which has become so captivated by these most recent, and albeit more dramatic, mass die offs. “It is the story that the press and the public have largely missed, and it is important, and timely, given the current concern,” Driscoll told the Times.

    These recent large scale animal deaths, wherein thousands of birds inexplicably fall from the sky, are certainly fodder for speculation as to what form of human activity may be behind it, but in the everyday reality for conservationists, the culprit is something far more sinister than top-secret government testing — it’s systemic activities and infrastructure so commonplace that the death they cause is not discussed.

    Ultimately, the public’s fascination with the die-offs is rooted in the concern that all may not be right between man and nature — and that perhaps finally the scales have been tipped irrevocably, meaning we may be next. But as the stories fade from the headlines, perhaps we’ll be too enraptured in the next news cycle to even breathe a sigh of relief that the problem has ‘passed’, so we’ll carry on.

    There is indeed something troubling about those mass deaths, but whether or not human activities are responsible for a few thousand bird corpses here and there isn’t really the point. 13.7 million wild birds died today in the United States and it’s unmentioned because there’s little doubt that we have something to do with most them.”

    From the NY Slime.

    “Pesticides kill 72 million birds directly, but an unknown and probably larger number ingest the poisons and die later unseen. Orphaned chicks also go uncounted.
    And then there is flying into objects, which is most likely what killed the birds in Arkansas. The government estimates that strikes against building windows alone account for anywhere from 97 million to nearly 976 million bird deaths a year. Cars kill another 60 million or so. High-tension transmission and power distribution lines are also deadly obstacles. Extrapolating from European studies, the Fish and Wildlife Service estimates 174 million birds die each year by flying into these wires. None of these numbers take into account the largest killer of birds in America: loss of habitat to development.”

    “Referring to a 2016 study that evaluated the impacts of invasive predators, Kauskik Narasimhan, a New Orleans resident and PhD student in Ecology at Tulane University”

    Hear is the study, which the “reporter” failed to author.

    https://www.pnas.org/content/113/40/11261

    “Rodents are linked to the extinction of 75 species (52 bird, 21 mammal, and 2 reptile species; 30% of all extinctions) and cats to 63 extinctions (40, 21, and 2 species, respectively; 26%) whereas red foxes, dogs (Canis familiaris), pigs (Sus scrofa), and small Indian mongoose (H. auropunctatus) are implicated in 9–11 extinctions each (Fig. 2). For all threatened and extinct species combined, cats and rodents threaten similar numbers of species (430 and 420 species, respectively), followed by dogs (156 species), pigs (140 species), mongoose (83 species), red foxes (48 species), stoats (30 species) (Fig. 2)”

    Let’s put this missive in perspective. From the WWF.

    “Just to illustrate the degree of biodiversity loss we’re facing, let’s take you through one scientific analysis…

    The rapid loss of species we are seeing today is estimated by experts to be between 1,000 and 10,000 times higher than the natural extinction rate.*
    These experts calculate that between 0.01 and 0.1% of all species will become extinct each year.
    If the low estimate of the number of species out there is true – i.e. that there are around 2 million different species on our planet** – then that means between 200 and 2,000 extinctions occur every year.
    But if the upper estimate of species numbers is true – that there are 100 million different species co-existing with us on our planet – then between 10,000 and 100,000 species are becoming extinct each year.”

    No, I am afraid, Mr Bradford, that you did not do your due diligence in this matter but rather allowed your contempt and visceral hatred of felines to cloud your judgement.

    Responsible pet owners are not the problem and neither are the kats, rather
    irresponsible pet owners whom treat creatures as disposable objects.

    If you lay blame upon the kat for bird kills then you may as well do likewise
    with firearms.

    1. avatar David Bradford says:

      Hans,
      Thank you for your level headed response. I find it quite refreshing to hear a rational argument put forth to an opposing view without having to endure character assassination, scurrilous accusations and general childishness.(for the most part)

      “As for you, Mr Bradford, take a chill pill and read up on the
      Black Plague. ”

      I am chill. My issue with MADD Mr. MAXX was that, having been triggered by my reference to cats as pests, he proceeded to attack me with wholly unfounded accusations about my beliefs and intentions.

      (MAXX says: “You “GET” murdering the wife? Because, I guess some men are just too FUCKING STUPID to walk away from a “HARD” relationship? Killing a cat is PEST control? “)(“That you place a dogs life above that of another human being speaks volumes about you “)(“if you live in one of those “Red Flag” states you should really be careful about voicing that opion publicly, you could get an unwanted visit from local LE and who knows maybe one of them might share your mindset and is hoping for some resistance….”)

      I took umbrage to those accusations. At no point did I, state, imply, or elude to any form suggesting the it was Okay to kill the woman, nor did I in any regard to a dogs value against a human life. I did say I believe cats to be pests( although I should have been more clear that I meant FERAL cats). And, I especially took issue with him saying that based on “his false claims” about me that I should start worrying that I could be RED FLAGGED and he hoped (crazy cop) violence on me. I responded to his rant, explaining that he was imparting far to much meaning to my comment. I explained “I get the wife” meant I understood that it was a crime of passion, motivated by emotion and not reason and I did not say it was an acceptable excuse to murder anyone. I also gave reason for my view of cats as pests and provided a link to better explain my thinking. I followed up with a terse statement about how inappropriate it is to suggest ANYONE be red flagged, that, that statement pissed me off and he should F’off.

      No, I am not a fan of cats. I could care less if anyone wants one for a pet or not. I recognize there is problem with feral and outdoor cats. But I do not loose sleep over it. It is not my thing. I have no (your words) visceral hatred of felines.. I heartily agree with the statement “Responsible pet owners are not the problem… “. But, by your own admission and the documentation provided, there is a problem and that feral cats ARE some part of that problem. I just wanted to point out that no matter how well intentioned Mr. MAXX’s efforts are, that they are counter productive on the whole.

      But hey, I’m cool. Not the first time someone online tried to twist what I said to make me out as a monster of some sort to hide that fact that I just may be right and they don’t have a rational argument to question my point.

        And what would be your final solution, Mr Bradford? These are God’s animals,
        no different than the ones in the wild, which so many, including our family provide
        feed and funding.

          Hans,
          Final solution? That would be a question for people with far more understanding of the facts than I, myself have access to. I understand how this is a touchy subject with many because people have an emotional affinity toward house cats. However, that being said we, especially the POTG, know that emotional FEELINGS should not over rule facts. This is a problem that should be dealt with pragmatically and not let ourselves be influenced with sentimentality for our personal pets. Feral cats are a non-native invasive species, not unlike feral hogs, Nutria, Burmese pythons, and Tegus here in the U.S. and those cute little bunny rabbits in Australia. These and many more have been introduced into environs (most as pets or livestock) that hold no real predatory pressure outside humans.We humans as a species have created this imbalance in the natural balance God’s creature’s lives. We created the problem and I feel it is our obligation to the natural world, at the very least attempt, to rectify the imbalance of their population in the wild. We need to contain and eliminated these invaders if there is to be any hope of controlling the proliferation. YES, and that means killing feral cats too when possible. You can’t house them all and they just can’t be allowed to roam free.

    Working with two rescues over the past 15 years, I see little afford made
    by the general population to assist either dogs or cats. I doubt there
    is a ratio of over one to a thousand, whom in someways provides material
    support for our beloved dogs and kats.

    Are there issues with feral kats? Undoubtedly, however, there is little in the
    form of public or private assistance.

    Others think there are other solutions, rather than mass liquidations.

    Perhaps, in the end, Mr Bradford, you maybe correct but I do not think
    it will be the final solution to this problem.

    The rat is # one in an effecting wildlife. Damm, I never knew dat.

    https://www.deakin.edu.au/about-deakin/media-releases/articles/invasive-predators-major-cause-of-species-extinctions

    “Non-native rats pose far more danger to wildlife than just spreading disease, with new Deakin University research showing they are high on a list of invasive mammalian predators that have contributed to more than half the globe’s bird, mammal, and reptile species extinctions over the past 500 years.”

    We cannot even control the rat population [unless they are in CONgress] and
    now a new front for mass killing of kats, loved by millions.

    I have lived in the burbs all of my life and never have witness a kat colony.

    Using quackquackgo, I could only find two field studies!?!?

    https://urbanwildliferesearchproject.com/feeding-the-feral-a-study-on-feral-cats-environmental-impact/

    Frankly, there are no easy solutions to this issue. And yes, I enjoy many of
    the creatures which the felines kills, but the answer of mass extermination
    if only and when an equally effect is made to reduce feral kats through humane
    actions have failed.

    My Indian friend is now referring to me as ” non-native invasive species.”
    I hope he does not read the comment section!
