A DISORDERED MIND:

Man Claiming to be Orlando Gunman's Lover Speaks Out (Alan Neuhauser, June 22, 2016, US News)

The man, who bore a disguise and went by the name "Miguel," said he met gunman Omar Mateen at an Orlando hotel as many as 20 times over a two-month period late last year.

Univision said the FBI confirmed meeting with Miguel, but the news agency could not independently verify the details of his story. Miguel said he believed that the shooting was prompted by Mateen's fear that he had contracted HIV during a sexual encounter with two Puerto Rican men. He said Mateen felt rejected by clubgoers at Pulse and that the motive for the shooting was "revenge."

"When I asked him what he was going to do now, his answer was 'I'm going to make them pay for what they did to me,'" Miguel told Univision.
