Orlando nightclub shooter’s father was FBI informant, court documents say

The father of the 29-year-old who killed 49 people at an Orlando nightclub in the summer of 2016 was an FBI informant who came under scrutiny himself after investigators found receipts for money transfers to Turkey and Afghanistan in the wake of the mass shooting, recently filed court documents show.

The revelation came in documents filed by attorneys for the shooter’s wife, Noor Salman, who is on trial in Orlando on allegations that she aided and abetted her husband’s attack and obstructed law enforcement’s investigation into it.

Prosecutors argue that Salman essentially admitted to the FBI that she knew what her husband was about to do. Defense attorneys argue that she was a victim of her husband’s abuse and infidelity and that false statements she made to the FBI came during a coercive interview.
