Maine Department of Public Safety Commissioner Mike Sauschuck held a press conference on Saturday afternoon and revealed more details regarding a suicide note that Lewiston mass shooter left behind suspect Robert Card.
During the press conference, Sauschuck noted that he’s well aware of the public’s concern about the note that was left behind by Card and stated, “I’m not going to read it to you verbatim, but it’s a note to a loved one and is saying that this is the passcode for my phone and bank account numbers.

Sauschuck continued, “I wouldn’t describe it as an explicit suicide note, but the tone and tenor was that the individual was not going to be around and wanted to make sure that this loved one had access to his phone and whatever was in his phone.
The mass murderer in Maine wrote a note to a loved one with his phone’s passcode and bank account before he was found dead about a mile away from his abandoned car.
Robert Card indiscriminately opened fire with a semiautomatic assault rifle inside a bowling alley and bar in Lewiston, Maine, on Wednesday, killing at least 18 people and injuring 13 more.

Two nights after the shooting – around 7:45 p.m. Friday – law enforcement found Card dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound inside one of about 55 to 60 metal trailers in a recycling center’s overflow parking lot.
