On Thursday, investigators searched the Polk County home of Angilo Freeland, the man who shot and killed a Polk County sheriff’s deputy and his canine partner.
Inside the house, they found high-powered weapons — an AK 47 assault rifle, an SKS assault rifle and a .380 handgun and Freeland’s journal.
In 16 pages from the journal, Freeland writes his thoughts on life. He writes of playing a part that has been given to him by a higher force. He discusses his frustrations about his life, berating himself for not reading enough, not exercising enough.
The journal give glimpses of a disturbed inner life, violent emotions running just beneath the surface, of a man on a mission.
“The only way a soldier can see his way out of a mission from a higher authority to go out in a moment of bezerk (sic) madness forcing the enemy to play the end game,” he wrote.
