Washington Naval Yard gunman Aaron Alexis called police to come to the Rhode Island hotel where he was staying just six weeks ago because he said he was hearing voices speaking to him “through the wall, flooring and ceiling.” Alexis served full time as an aviation electrician in the U.S. Navy Reserve from May 2007 to January 2011 and received the National Defense Service Medal and the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal. Alexis, who told police he had moved into three different hotels on the night of August 7th because he was trying to escape from the microwave vibrations, added that two black men and a black woman were following him and keeping “him awake by talking to him and sending vibrations to his body” through a microwave. Lt. William Fitzgerald of the Newport Police said Alexis told the police he “had never felt anything like this before,” and that “he was worried these people were going to harm him.” Fitzgerald added that Alexis told police that he had no history of mental illness, so police simply said to stay away from the people following him.
