SAN ANTONIO (AP) — The wife of the man who opened fire at a Texas church last November, killing more than two dozen people before killing himself, says he tied her to their bed before leaving for the shooting.

In a series of interviews with the San Antonio Express-News, Danielle Kelley said her husband, Devin Kelley, behaved strangely detached that morning until he put their 2-year-old son in the bedroom and forced her into the bedroom, where he bound her to the bed using rope, handcuffs and tape as their son cried.

The article goes on to state the following:

She said Devin told her he loved her, kissed their 5-month-old daughter in her crib and told their son, “I’ll be right back.” He grabbed his rifle and two handguns, donned military-style tactical gear and body armor, then left. Devin Kelley then went to First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs and killed 25 people, more than half of whom were children. Authorities put the official death toll at 26 because one of the victims was pregnant.

Danielle still uses her husband’s surname, saying she’s “not going to be ashamed” of it.

“We all have our demons,” Danielle said.

  1. We all have our demons???? Maybe so but most of our demons do not cause us to kill 26 people (or anybody for that matter).

  2. Rope is one thing but handcuffs can’t be untied. How did she manage to get unbound? I don’t recall hearing/reading anything about this previously. Probably getting ready to write a book.

  3. It’s time for an update from authorities as she must have given them more info at the time, and since then. Too much is left out of this story by AP and it had to be reloaded countless times, especially from the comment page. Perhaps someone other than his wife has some insight as to what was going on with him.

  4. No where in this did she say she was sorry for the victims or their families, sounds like she knew more than she said here..her say in everyone has their demons sounds like him and her had some conversations before he decided to do this..

  5. and to be clear – we DONT ALL have OUR demons. There are “hidden evil principalities” amongst us and this man obviously had not repented and accepted Jesus Christ into his heart. If he ever said that he did, it was a lie or he slid right back into darkness. Jesus Christ’s parable of the sower will explain this. That woman SHOULD be ashamed of her name and should be crying her eyes out day and night!!!!!! and better think quickly about reaching out to Jesus Christ, our LORD and SAVIOR. The end is truly near. Most people cannot see it. Most just walk blindly through this life thinking all there is is clubbing, texting, and keeping up with the neighbors! Time to pick a side! Judgement day is just around the corner. Or just go back to that smart phone of yours and whatever trivial worldly thing it is you’re worrying about. I know this message certainly is not going to open any eyes, but I now know what it is like, after having been reborn again 2+ years ago to have people look at you with blank eyes like you’re crazy. lol I feel sorry for all the Christians that ever crossed my path prior to me being saved. No, we dont ALL have demons, but MANY do start listening to the demons that whisper in their ears. AND NO – if you THINK you’re ok because you THINK you’re a good person and that little god that you have made up in your head says you’re ok, you’re just kidding yourself like most everyone on this earth is. After have been reading the Bible now for over two years and praying to God for guidance in the name of Jesus Christ and giving Him thanks always, I am just now understanding what it takes to make it to the end and not lose my crown. Most all of you are so incredibly blind. And KNOW THIS: the words conservative and Christian are not interchangeable. Peace and Love to all of you and yours. It’s not too late. Titus 3:5 – Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Romans 10:9 – That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Matthew 7:21 – Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. John 6:44 – No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. John 14:6 – Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
