At times he was DyingChild_65, at others nghtmrchld26. But regardless of 
Matthew Murray's alleged screen name, he was always angry when posting to 
various anti-religious websites. 

The 24-year-old Arapahoe County resident — who carried out attacks Sunday at 
two religious organizations about 70 miles apart, killing four people and 
injuring several others — exploded on the Internet between Sunday's shootings. 

"Christian America this is YOUR Columbine," said the poster who appears to be 
Murray on the newsgroup almost four hours before the 
shooting at the New Life Church campus in Colorado Springs. 

Police say Murray walked onto the campus hurling smoke bombs and armed with 
handguns, rifles and 1,000 rounds of ammunition. He fatally shot sisters 
Stephanie Works, 18, and Rachael Works, 16, before getting into a gunbattle 
with a security guard and finally killing himself, officials say. 

Hours before, Murray opened fire in a dormitory for missionaries in Arvada, 
killing Tiffany Johnson, 26, and Philip Crouse, 24. 

Between shootings, Murray apparently logged onto a computer and posted writings 
from Columbine shooter Eric Harris under his own name, lyrics from satanic rock 
songs and rants about being rejected, abused and suffocated by Christianity. 

Authorities have confirmed some website postings; police are still examining 
other postings, including ones by DyingChild_65 on 
Officials from the organizations named in those postings confirmed some of the 
details Murray wrote. 

A post from DyingChild_65, made at 9:33 a.m. Sunday, said he had been a member 
of the Denver chapter of Youth With a Mission, a member of the occult group Ad 
Astra Oasis in Denver and a staff member of the missionary group King's Kids 

Each of those groups on Tuesday confirmed Murray's involvement. 

Murray participated in several camps with King's Kids Denver, which does 
Christian outreach. The family that runs King's Kids Denver introduced Murray 
to Youth With a Mission in Denver, said Paul Filidis, a spokesman for Youth 
With a Mission in Colorado Springs. 

"They said he was a special case," Filidis said Tuesday, agreeing to speak 
after talking with King's Kids Denver director Ronny Morris. 
After Youth With a Mission officials refused to send Murray on a mission, the 
Morris family offered to talk to YWAM officials but Murray asked them not to, 
said Filidis. 

Morris' daughter Veronica said, "We loved Matthew, and we cared for him the 
best we could." 

Angered by rejections 

DyingChild_65 did not feel loved. He wrote that he was angered by being 
rejected by various groups over the years. 

"I hate you people for leaving me out of so many fun things," one post said. 
"Never inviting me to all your fun parties, never inviting me to hang out." 

The killings in Arvada followed a night of Christmas revelry by the young 
people training to be missionaries, said Peter Warren, YWAM director. Murray 
arrived after the Christmas party, asking to stay at the dorm. He talked with 
staffers for 30 minutes before firing. 

Later, on the website, DyingChild_65 wrote that he had 
looked everywhere for spiritual truth. 

"All I found in christianity was hate, abuse (sexual, physical, psychological, 
and emotional), hypocrisy, and lies," writes the poster 

DyingChild_65 ends his rant by saying: "Like Cho, Eric Harris, Ricky Rodriguez 
and others, I'm going out to make a stand for the weak and the defenseless this 
is for all those young people still caught in the Nightmare of Christianity for 
all those people who've been abused and mistreated and taken advantage of by 
this evil sick religion Christian America this is YOUR Columbine." 

Rodriguez, as a child member in a cult, was forced to perform sex acts. He 
later left the cult, killed a former nanny and then killed himself. In April, 
Virginia Tech student Seung-Hui Cho killed 32 people and himself in the 
deadliest campus shooting in U.S. history. 

At least one visitor to the website was alarmed and contacted the FBI promptly, 
before the second attack, 9News reported the site's administrator as saying. 

The FBI confirmed to 9News that the bureau got the warning about 10:30 a.m. 
Sunday. Murray's final posting on the website was at 11:03 a.m. 

The FBI told 9News that after it got the warning, it contacted Arvada police. 
Agents were examining Murray's posts when the shootings at New Life Church 

Carl Raschke, a professor of religious studies at the University of Denver, 
said he believes Murray was "under huge psychological turmoil." 

"It seemed like he was involved in his own spiritual battle against the empire 
of Christianity," adding that one of the screen names, nghtmrchld26, is taken 
from a video game in which characters battle evil demons. 

"I would call him a defector from the spiritual warfare that he was brought up 
in," Raschke said. 

Asked to leave group 

Steve Mariner, the president of Denver's occult group Ad Astra Oasis, says 
Murray attended group meetings for about a year before being asked to leave in 

Ad Astra Oasis is an officially chartered body of the Ordo Templi Orientis, a 
ceremonial magic order based on the teachings of English poet and mystic 
Aleister Crowley. 

"He was a mostly quiet, geeky young man," Mariner said of Murray. "He was a 
skinny little kid. He was your typical I-like-college-over-cars type. He was a 
voracious reader, as far as I could tell. I never heard him raise his voice." 

Mariner said the group of about 15 people realized over time that Murray was 
not fitting in. 

"It seemed like he needed some time to back off and evaluate himself," he said. 
"We could summarize it as saying the personalities were not a good mix." 

Mariner said he was shocked when he learned Murray was the shooter. 

"You are sitting there having a conversation with someone ," Mariner said. "We 
all have our little personality quirks, but you don't appraise them of being 
someone who would go off and do something this atrocious." 

That Murray shot several people horrified Richard Werner, a missionary who 
bunked with him in Arvada in 2002, but it didn't surprise him. 

"It was something you can't ever imagine, but it was so obvious after it 
happened," said Werner, 34, who now lives in Brazil. "It's just because of the 
way he used to behave." 

Uncomfortable memories 

Werner shared a dormitory with 18 other people, and Murray slept on a bottom 
bunk next to his. Now a cook who ministers in his free time, Werner said his 
time with Murray left him with some uncomfortable memories. 

One experience jarred Werner enough to note it in his diary. 

"It was Oct. 23 of 2002," Werner said Tuesday in a telephone interview from 
Brazil. "He was tossing and turning in the middle of the night, talking to 
himself. I asked him if everything was OK, and he said, 'I'm just talking to my 
voices.' " 

The response jarred Werner. 

"I said, 'Dude, you've got to be kidding,' " Werner recalled. "And he said, 
'Don't worry, Richard. You're a nice guy and you have nothing to worry about. 
The voices like you.' " 

Another memorable incident occurred at a missionary Christmas party where 
attendees grouped together and some sang songs in the talent-show atmosphere, 
Werner said. 

"He just went up there to sing, and one of the songs was 'I'm One Step Closer 
to the Edge,' which really upset people," Werner said. 

The Linkin Park song culminates with the anguished phrase "I'm about to break!" 

When directors at the school decided in December 2002 that Murray shouldn't 
join others on a mission trip to Bosnia, Werner said it was because "people 
weren't comfortable with his behavior." 

"He wasn't kicked out," he said. "The directors had a conversation with his 
parents, and it was decided it would be better if he leave." 

On another website, a poster named nghtmrchld26, believed by police to be 
Murray, said he rebelled against an upbringing that forbade him from buying 
rock music, video games and popular DVDs. 

He writes that he felt oppressed by the restrictions. The hypocrisy of 
religious leaders, he wrote, prompted him to rebel, although he feared 
"returning back to what is at least 'familiar,' into a system I at least know 
how to behave in.' " 

In another posting, Murray wrote of a crushing depression that would not 
respond to intensive therapy or medication. 

"This is the Nightmare that just goes on and on," he wrote. 

Some postings harbor bitterness toward Youth With a Mission. He said the staff 
there decided to tell him one week before an outreach mission that they did not 
want him to go. 

"The fact is, in YWAM, and christianity, it's all about the Beautiful People," 
he wrote.

A message posted between the Youth With a Mission shooting in Arvada on Sunday, 
Dec. 9 and the New Life Church shooting in Colorado Springs is believed to be 
Matthew Murray's last posting. It contains language which many may find 

You christians brought this on yourselves 


I'm coming for EVERYONE soon and I WILL be armed to the @#%$ teeth and I WILL 
shoot to kill. ....God, I can't wait till I can kill you people. Feel no 
remorse, no sense of shame, I don't care if I live or die in the shoot-out. All 
I want to do is kill and injure as many of you ... as I can especially 
Christians who are to blame for most of the problems in the world. 

Well all you people out there can just kiss my ass and die. From now on I don't 
give a @#%$ about what all you mutha fuckers have to say, unless I respect you 
which is highly unlikely, but for those of you who do happen to know me and 
know that I respect you, may peace be with you and don't be in my line of fire, 
for the rest of you, you all better @#%$ hide in your houses because I'm coming 
for EVERYONE soon, and I WILL be armed to the @#%$ teeth, and I WILL shoot to 
kill and I WILL @#%$ KILL EVERYTHING! No I am not crazy, crazy is just a word, 
to me it has no meaning, everyone is different, but most of you @#%$ heads out 
there in society, going to your everyday @#%$ jobs and doing your everyday 
routine shitty things, I say @#%$ you and die, if you got a problem with my 
thoughts, come to me and I'll kill you, because........God damnit, DEAD PEOPLE 
DON'T ARGUE! My belief is that if I say something, it goes. I am the law. If 
you don't like it, you die. If I don't like you or I don't like what you want 
me to do, then you die. If I do something incorrect, oh @#%$ well, you die. 
Dead people can't do many things, like argue, whine, @#%$, complain, name, rat 
out, criticize, or even @#%$ talk. So that's the only way to solve arguments 
with all you fuckheads out there, I just kill. God I can't wait till I can kill 
you people, I'll just go to some downtown area in some big city and blow up and 
shoot everything I can. 

You break my back but you won't break me.....all is black but I still 
see...shut me down, knock me to the floor.....shoot me up, @#%$ me like a 
whore....trapped under ice, comfortably cold, I've gone as low as you can 
go..... feel no remorse, no sorrow or shame......time's gonna wash away all 
pain I made a God out of blood not superiority I killed the king of deceit and 
now I sleep in anarchy
