Not Surprisingly, Dylann Roof Was In Contact With White Supremacists

Dylann Roof, the gunman who killed 9 people in a black church in Charleston, South Carolina last month, was discovered to have associated with other white supremacists before he carried out his massacre.

Investigators into the crime have found information linking Roof to other supremacists which means that if any of these associates had known about his plans to shoot up the church, they could be prosecuted as accessories.

The authorities have not released any of the names yet. In addition, senior officials plan to charge Roof with hate crime charges along with his nine counts of murder.
