Due to the angle of the shot, police suspected it was an intentional homicide. Ratliff was found in his own gun store, and was armed but had not drawn his gun, leading many to draw the same conclusion Ratliff’s brother told reporters: “For him not to pull out that gun and try to defend himself, he had to feel comfortable around somebody. Either that or he was ambushed.”

After a nine-month hiatus, FPSRussia started releasing new episodes. The first one came out on January 10, 2014. Since then, he has continued to gather YouTube subscribers, as of April 2016 he over 6 million subscribers with more than 728 million views. Most recently, ‘Dmitri’ has tested personal flamethrowers, a double-barreled shotgun, and even a WWII tank. Since returning from the hiatus, it is notable that the channel hasn’t been using tannerite in any of its shots, leading to the conclusion that the FPSRussia crew may be unable to procure the explosive without Ratliff’s help.
