For the record.
The nephew of Jon Tester, the Democratic senator from Montana and the chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, which helps elect Democrats to the Senate from across the country. was found murdered in his small Washington state town — lying in a pool of his own blood with a bloodstained wood-splitting ax nearby, reports The New York Post.
Bob Tester, 35, was found after his 8-year-old daughter called her grandmother to say her father had been killed.
His daughter apparently interacted with her father’s killer — moments before the murder.
Court documents state: “The man told her to stay in bed because he was going to kill her dad,” NBC Montana reports.
According to the New York Post, Bob Tester’s last Facebook posting — both ominous and self-reflective — reportedly was included in court documents.
“I stick to myself for a reason. Don’t do family bbqs for a reason… There’s gonna be some hard days ahead of us but i want you all to know that I was victimized by someone close to me. He took my best friend from me and turned her life into darkness, thru drugs and manipulation… Just understand why I roar when i do. Understand my agony,” Tester wrote on Facebook.
