Ivey revealed he was disturbed by a Facebook post 26-year-old Devin Kelley made and messaged him to see if he was okay just hours before the attack took place at Sutherland Baptist Church in Texas. In the troubling Facebook post Kelley said, "he wasn't thinking correctly and his head hurt." Ivey said he kept in fairly regular contact with Kelley through Facebook because of living in separate states.
Kelley's uncle also revealed he is related to him on Facebook as well as the interview. Public records show Kelley's mother's maiden name is Ivey and she is also listed in an obituary for Kelley's maternal grandfather. Dave Ivey of Toledo, Washington was also listed in the obituary for Kelley's grandmother.
The Texas church shooter was shot by a heroic local plumber who lived across the street from the Baptist church where the mass shooting took place.
