Military, music marked temple suspect’s path to Wisconsin
Investigators spent Monday trying to figure out what led 40-year-old Wade Michael Page from repairing missiles for the Army to a Sikh temple in suburban Milwaukee, where he was killed by police at the end of a Sunday morning rampage.
The shaven-headed Page, whose tattoos included the Celtic cross adopted by white supremacist groups, had been the front man for a white-power rock band called “End Apathy” for several years. Two former neighbors identified him from photos on the band’s MySpace page.
His path appears to have taken him from Colorado to Milwaukee, where he enlisted in the Army in 1992; back to Colorado; to North Carolina, where he started the band; and then back to the Milwaukee area, where he had been “a short time” before the shootings, Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards told reporters Monday.
