OAK CREEK, WI (WTAQ) - Wade Michael Page was not under the influence of drugs when he killed six people plus himself in the August 5th shooting rampage at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek.
The Milwaukee County medical examiner’s office released an autopsy report on the 40-year-old Page Wednesday, a day after the FBI said it completed its investigation into the mass shootings.
A toxicology report said Page had a small amount of alcohol in his system – but it might have been a result of decomposition, and it was not known if Page had been drinking before the massacre.
The medical examiner said Page was shot in the right side of his abdomen by an Oak Creek police officer – and had a self-inflicted wound in the back of the head from his nine-millimeter pistol.
The FBI said Page acted alone in planning and carrying out the shooting spree – and a motive could not be established.
The medical examiner’s report showed that Page wore a foam ear-plug in his right ear during the gunfire. And his many tattoos included skulls and cross-bones on one arm, and the word “Suffer” across his shoulders.
