FBI looking into website


CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- Two federal law enforcement officials say the FBI is investigating a website that appears to have photos of the Charleston church shooting suspect holding a Confederate flag along with a racist rant.

The purported manifesto was found on a website called LastRhodesian.com and surfaced Saturday. It's unclear whether it was written by Dylann Roof, the man arrested in the killing of nine people inside the church Wednesday night. The writings are in line with what Roof has told friends and what he said before allegedly opening fire in the historic black church Wednesday night.

Two federal law enforcement officials said the FBI is aware of the website and is reviewing it. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because one was not authorized to speak publicly on the case and the other because the investigation is ongoing.
