Tristan Wix Commit
Tristan Wix Said He Wanted to “Break a World Record for Longest Confirmed Kill Ever.”
Wix sent several unsettling texts to his ex-girlfriend. In one message he discussed his disdain for school shootings.
“A school is a weak target.. id is more likely to open fire on a large crowd of people from over 3 miles away. I’d wanna break a world record for longest confirmed kill ever.”
He sent another message talking about his interest in a mass shooting. “I wanna open fire on a large crowd of people from over 3 miles away before I die and I need a spotter (laughing cry face emoji).”
Wix did not appear to want to harm his ex-girlfriend. “What you wanna do after the fact, is your own business, if you want to plan to escape we can work on that. But I don’t intend on walking away alive unless I see it fit.”
In another message, he told her that threating a shooting wasn’t an issue. “Ah well even if you told someone, me saying I wanna do it and think about it is not the same as actually doing it lol. Was kinda hoping someone would come into my life worth not doing it for, for the sake of all those people (laughing cry face emoji).
I’m not crazy I just wanna die and I wanna have fun doing it, but I’m the most patient person in the world.”
Tristan Wix Arrested
Wix Didn’t Seem to Know Why He Was Being Arrested. After viewing Wix’s violent plans, police attempted to track him down.
They went to his worksite, only to discover he’d recently lost his job. When authorities finally located Wix and surrounded him with guns drawn in a Winn-Dixie grocery store parking lot, he seemed confused. He even apologized for his reaction while being swarmed by police.
“Can I ask what’s going on?” Wix asked one of the arresting officers immediately after he was handcuffed next to his Cadillac with Tennessee tags. One officer told him someone else would speak to him about the offense.
Wix then wanted to know if he was being arrested for an unpaid debt. An officer responded by asking if he had any outstanding warrants, to which he said, “Not that I know of.”
