The Southern Poverty Law Center is looking into Lloyd Barrus, one of the suspects in the killing of Broadwater Deputy Mason Moore.

In their release, SPLC described that Barrus posted anti-government, anti-police and pro-gun views across his social media.  

During our own investigation into the background of Lloyd Barrus and his son Marshall, ABC FOX Montana uncovered that both men have a criminal history. Marshall Barrus, 38, was charged with a felony in 2016. Lloyd Barrus, 61, has had multiple arrests. 

Our research corroborates some of the SPLC's findings on Barrus' views as well. Lloyd Barrus posted messages such as "URGENT - IMMINENT - MILITARY COUP ABOUT to TAKE PLACE" on his Twitter account May 5. On April 29 he shared a post from InfoWars claiming a 9/11 cover-up by Israel has been exposed. Other posts share ammo tests and war footage. 


His Facebook Page is riddled with quotes, bible passages and memes, some of which we have collected in the slideshow above. A few posts specifically relate to law enforcement.

Missoula County Sheriff's Office reports Marshall Barrus died Wednesday afternoon after a gunshot wound to the head that was sustained during his Tuesday morning shootout with law enforcement. Lloyd Barrus appeared in court at 2:30 pm Wednesday. His bail was set at $2 million.
