The man responsible for the weekend shootings that left four people dead in Moscow was a member of the Neo-Nazi Aryan Nations group.
The white supremacy organization was based in northern Idaho before moving first to Pennsylvania - and then Alabama.
Jason Hamilton's ties to the Aryan Nations group were found when FBI agents and Latah County Sheriff's deputies searched his home.
Hamilton committed suicide in a Presbyterian church after killing his wife - a police officer - and a caretaker for the church.
While searching his home - authorities found evidence that showed Hamilton had been an Aryan Nations member for the past seven-years.
