America experienced its worst mass shooting in history when a gunman murdered 49 people at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida in June of 2016. Unfortunately, the wheels of justice can move very slowly.
That's because SEVEN MONTHS after Omar Mateen was shot dead after murdering nearly 50 LGBT people and allies, the FBI finally took a huge step in the case on Monday… by arresting his wife, Noor Mateen!
Noor had been a suspect in the case from the very start when police began believing she was lying about her familiarity with her husband's plans — she drove him to the nightclub multiple times before the attack and admitted to helping him purchase ammo, though she said she did not know his intentions.
According to reports, the 29-year-old security guard's wife was taken into custody outside of her San Francisco home early Monday morning — although, it's currently unclear exactly what charges she's being held on.
Multiple sources suggest it has something to do with obstruction of justice.
We'll continue to update you as the investigation unfolds… but we're just glad the victims' families and friends are finally going to get more answers.
