Who Is The Man Charged In The Livingston Co. Shooting?


Raulie Casteel is a husband and a father with strong roots in Mid-Michigan.

Some insight into the mind of a suspected serial shooter by looking through his Twitter feed show he was angry at the government.

Tweets including:

  • "How many bumps in the road have we hit in the past 3 and a half years?"
  • "Michigan needs more transparency. I call for an open carry law."

His Twitter account shows several rants about government. It was quiet during the time of the roadway shootings, but days before, one post calls for the arrest and impeachment of the president, marching him out of the White House in handcuffs.

It appears Casteel used the internet to share his political opinions, posting his thoughts on sites like Freedom Works and OpenCongress.

Officials with St Johns School District confirm 43-year-old Casteel is a 1987 graduate of their high school. He later went on to study at Michigan State University, where officials say he graduated with a degree in Crop and Soil Sciences in 1997.

Records show he got married and lived in Howell until 2006 when the family moved to Kentucky. There Casteel incorporated a business called Green Oak Holdings.

The Casteels owned a home which has been on the market since April. They'd recently moved back to Michigan and had been living in Wixom.
