Ruth Whitfield, 86, headed out on Saturday to visit her husband at his nursing home in Buffalo, New York, as she did every day. But this time, she never made it home. “My mother had just gone to see my father, as she does every day, in the nursing home, and stopped at the Tops (supermarket) to buy just a few groceries,” said her son Garnell Whitfield, a retired fire commissioner. Whitfield said his mother was a “consummate mum” whose dedication never wavered even after her husband was admitted to the care facility. “She took care of our dad as she’d done her whole married life. She brought him clean clothes, clipped his nails, shaved him, cut his hair,” Whitfield told Buffalo News . Ruth was later confirmed as one of the 10 people gunned down by an 18-year-old shooter in what authorities have called a “racially motivated” attack .

Gendron, is believed to have posted a 180-page document on the internet fixated on the notion of "replacement theory," according to authorities. "Great Replacement theory is the notion that people from minority populations, both here and in Europe, are replacing the existing white, largely Christian [population]," said Larry Rosenthal, chair and lead researcher of the Berkeley Center for Right-Wing Studies.
