Accused Waffle House Shooter’s Father May Not Have Committed Crime
(Pekin, IL) — Prosecutors in central Illinois say the father of the man accused of killing four people at a Tennessee Waffle House may not have broken the law. Tazewell County State’s Attorney Stu Umholtz yesterday said that if Jeff Reinking sent his son Travis the rifle used in the shooting, that could qualify as a gift. Umholtz said Illinois law would make it a crime for Travis Reinking to posses the rifle in Illinois, but Umholtz said it wouldn’t be against the law for Jeff Reinking to give his son the rifle while Travis was living in Tennessee. But Umholtz added it’s too early to say if any laws were broken in the case.
