RAYNHAM, Mass. -- The former Navy reservist who authorities say killed 12 people at the Washington Navy Yard visited a Buddhist temple in Massachusetts last month where he talked about noises in his head.
Eang Tan, a board member at the Thai Buddhist temple in Raynham, says Aaron Alexis visited the house of worship on Aug. 18.
Tan tells the Taunton Daily Gazette that as soon as temple officials recognized Alexis on TV newscasts after Monday's shooting, they contacted police.
Tan says Alexis addressed temple members in fluent Thai and asked for a place to spend the night. When they asked why he didn't go to a hotel, Tan says Alexis said couldn't sleep in a hotel because of the noises in his head.
Tan says Alexis spent one night, then left.
