FORT WORTH, Texas — The Iraq War veteran charged with gunning down two men on a Texas shooting range – including a highly decorated former Navy SEAL sniper – had been taken to a mental hospital twice in recent months and told authorities he suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, according to police records.

After the shootings, Eddie Ray Routh, 25, also told his sister and brother-in-law he had “traded his soul for a new truck,” according to an Erath County arrest warrant affidavit obtained by WFAA-TV. Police said Routh was driving the truck of victim and ex-Navy SEAL author Chris Kyle at the time of his arrest.
