Wisconsin temple shooter did not have drugs in system


MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- Milwaukee County authorities say the white supremacist who killed six people at a Sikh Temple in Oak Creek on August 5, did not have drugs in his system when he committed his assaults.

A toxicology report released Wednesday says Wade Michael Page had a small amount of alcohol in his system, but the medical examiner's office says alcohol is sometimes a by-product of decomposition, and its not clear whether Page was drinking beforehand.

The report says the 40-year-old shooter didn't have drugs in his system.

Page killed six Sikh worshippers before killing himself. FBI officials say he acted alone and that his motive remains unclear. An autopsy report says Page's many tattoos included skulls and crossbones on one forearm and the word "suffer" across his shoulders.
