Gilbert Massacre tied to known Neo-Nazi, slaughters whole family
J.T. Ready, a known neo-nazi shot and slaughtered his whole family, including a one year old child. A Massacre that shook the whole community of Mesa. Ready was a one-time member of the neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement, Ready, 39, was a committed white supremacist, a former Republican precinct committeeman, and a failed candidate for the Mesa City Council. He was also a candidate for Sheriff in Pinal County.
On May 2, it was breaking news throughout the Valley- it was reported by several news agencies that a shoot out in Gilbert occurred and the gunman was on the loose, but later throughout the day, more information was released and it was then said to be J.T. Ready, who shot and fatally killed his girlfriend and her children.
Fox News reported: “In what may be a quadruple murder-suicide, J.T. Ready presumably shot and killed his girlfriend, 47-year-old Lisa Mederos, Lisa’s daughter 22-year-old Amber Mederos, Amber’s 22-year-old boyfriend, Jim Hoitt, and Amber’s 2-year-old daughter, Lilly, according to a law enforcement source. This information has not officially been released by Gilbert Police.”
T.J. Ready had ties to the author of S.B. 1070, former ousted Sen. Russell Pearce said in a prepared statement late Thursday, ”In the past several years, the local media has worked hard to try to tie me to the J.T. Ready that preached hate,” Pearce asserts. “And that is nothing more than a lie. When I learned the truth about him, I made it clear how wrong I thought it was, and I worked to remove him from our party.” Russell tried to distant himself from Ready.
Local Law Enforcement and the FBI are still investigating, Gilbert detectives have said they will not release anymore information, unless there are any new developments.
