My life was ruined. Ruined by an intelligent species of amphibian-humanoids from Mars. I wish I was joking. Keep reading.
—Kyle Odom, “Manifesto”
In early 2014, University of Idaho student and ex-Marine Kyle Odom discovered the technique of meditation as a way to deal with the stress over his heavy coursework. By February of that year, he claimed to have encountered a “being” through these meditations.
On March 6, 2016, Odom shot Pastor Tim Remington inside a church parking lot. Two days later in Washington D.C., Odom was arrested after throwing documents over the South Fence of the White House. In those documents, as well as a Facebook status posted shortly after the Remington shooting, Odom claimed that the world was ruled by an ancient civilization from Mars.
