Police: Found bag may be Loughner's; crime scene processing complete

Police believe they may have found a black bag that caused an argument between Arizona shooting suspect Jared Lee Loughner and his father hours before Loughner allegedly shot 19 people, killing six and wounding 13, authorities said Thursday.

A teenager out walking his dog found the bag in a "wash," or dried river bed, on Thursday morning, and turned it over to a neighbor, who called police, Pima County Sheriff's Department Capt. Chris Nanos said. The bag was found near where Loughner's family lives, he said.

On Wednesday, Richard Kastigar, bureau chief for the sheriff's department, said investigators were looking for a black bag Loughner was carrying early Saturday when he had a brief discussion with his father, Randy Loughner, in the Loughners' front yard.

    Is anybody or anything ever going to elucidate whatever motivated this young man to do what he did? That's what I want to know. Besides,did this Gabrielle Giffords ever elucidate her position on the two obnoxious wars overseas and the unnecessary military spending going on in Washington??? If she did,what is it?

    This seems so much like political rhetoric. A large news organization reports a bag to bring closure to Loughlins crime scene processing. OK. There were four references to the black bags itinerary. No mention of the bags contents. No mention of the bags relevance (they probably don't want us to know) to the Loughlin case. Maybe we should come up in there, and lojack that stupid bag, so you can generate more stupid bag stories. I'll just go to the store and buy something...anything...so...I CAN HAVE MY OWN STUPID BAG. 🙁

    Hello all. It's been awhile, damn weather has been crazy. I came accross a piece of internet gold today. A man named Steve Lightfoot believes that Stephen King killed john Lennon, and somehow it's related to the recent shootings. In fact, it's pretty much connected to everything bad that has ever happened. Even further, if John Lennon wasn't assasinated (by Stephen King, remember) that pretty much everything bad we've been through would not have happened. It's a genuine real-life parody of "A Beautiful Mind." Just Google it, and laugh until you realize you're laughing at someone who obviously needs help.

    @Chase: Would you not agree that every true champion of peace somehow magically meets some crazed loon? Only the truly evil seem to get away with everything. Think about it and get back to me.

    Why isnt the news media calling this fool a terrorist? Or investigating his religion? Because your religion has nothing 2 do with your criminal act.....Unless your MUSLIM.

    Eydie, if he was Muslim or Christian the media would be all over it. But since he appears to have been somekind of "Skull worshipper" i.e. Satanist, they are strangely silent. I guess Muslims & Christians can have something in common, we don't worship "Skulls".

      There's a report of him vandalizing a street sign in which he wrote CX and told officers it meant Christian.
