I first heard about this on The Blaze, and was referred to the website. Of course, this is a case under investigation, but it is concerning that the 32 year old FFL arms provider to FPSRussia has been murdered. I hope that this murder is not an attempt to silence FPS Russia himself who brings internet information to gun owners through his Youtube videos on a regular basis. I wonder who might wish to silence famous members of the pro-gun and freedom alliance ?
This is FPS Russia:
"FPS Russia" is a character with a questionable Russian accent who demonstrates varietal firearms on everything from fruit to milk jugs. The "character" is named Dimitri.

FPSRussia’s Weapons Guy Found Dead, Single Gunshot to HeadThere’s a story out of Carnesville, Georgia that Keith Ratliff, weapons provider for the popular YouTube celebrity FPSRussia (the man with the FFL that gets him his toys) was found dead, reportedly tied to a chair (unconfirmed sources on that tip). Police say the cause of death was a single gunshot wound to the head, and are treating the incident as a homicide.
From Lake Hartwell Radio:
According to Franklin County Sheriff Stevie Thomas, the body of 32-year old Keith Ratliff of Frankfort, Kentucky was found about 5:45p Thursday evening.
At the time, authorities would not release any information until the victim’s relatives had been notified. On Sunday, Thomas said Ratliff’s body was discovered after a 911 call.
“We received a call about a possible DOA,” Thomas said Sunday. “Upon the deputies arrival, they found a white male who was unconscious and not breathing. EMS personnel came and determined the man was deceased.”
Thomas said they are treating the death as a homicide until the investigation proves otherwise. He would not say why the man was in Carnesville or give any other information.
Investigators, Thomas said, determined Ratliff had died of a single gunshot to the head and that his body been there for some time. Thomas said investigators found numerous guns in the area where Ratliff’s body was found.

I have confirmed this story with a number of other news outlets.
|This is Keith Ratliff|
Keith was a Federal Firearms Licensed Dealer who must meet 20,000 stringent laws on weapons.
He had a business in which legal modifications to firearms were made. He was a principle in FPS Russia Industries.
His death should be the subject of a federal investigation, not simply one on a state level.
Stay safe, Kyle !
