The man responsible for the worst mass shooting in U.S. history was a violent husband according to his ex-wife Sitora Yusufiy. Online records show that Omar Mateen wed Sitora Alisherzoda Yusufiy in Florida in 2009. The couple divorced in 2011, reports WPTV's Joshua Chavers. The announcement for the wedding says the pair both lived in Port St. Lucie, Florida.
On June 12, Mateen was responsible for the shooting deaths of 50 people and the wounding of 53 at a gay nightclub named Pulse in Orlando. Authorities are investigating whether or not Mateen had ties to radical Islamic terrorist groups.
In an interview with Heavy.com, Yusufiy said that she lived in Florida with Mateen between April 2009 and August 2009. She said that her parents then "rescued" her from the relationship and she never saw Mateen again. The divorce process took two years because of the long distance.
During the aftermath of the shooting, Yusufiy posted a note of condolence to her Facebook page saying:
"Great Spirit I offer my deepest prayer and condolences to the victims of the Orlando shooting...
May they transition in peace may their souls be healed, may the wounded victims recover and heal in peace, may the families and loved ones heal and find their peace....
Archangel Michael Please protect us from suffering and the suffered.... Please protect us from hate, violence, anger and instability.... Amen."
