Sportsman Channel TV Host Murdered in Whitefish
It seems like Whitefish is turning into the #1 place in Montana to get murdered . Lots of news of murder have been springing up all around the small resort town. Recently TV host of “The Rifleman’s Journal,” Gregory Rodriguez, was shot and killed while visiting a friend in Whitefish.
According to Huffington post
Police said Rodriguez, 43, of Sugar Land, Texas, died Thursday in the town of Whitefish when he was shot by another man in an apparent jealous rage while the TV personality visited the shooter’s wife.
Whitefish Police Chief Bill Dial said that 41-year-old Wayne Bengston shot Rodriguez at about 10:30 p.m. at the home of his wife’s mother. Dial said Bengston then beat his wife, took his 2-year-old son to a relative’s house and drove to his home about 25 miles away in West Glacier, where he killed himself. Dial said Bengston’s wife was treated at a hospital and released that night.
Dial said that Rodriguez and the woman, who works for a firearms manufacturer in the Flathead Valley, met at a trade show and struck up a casual relationship that police do not believe was romantic.
