N.S. gunman's 'advantage': Hours passed before RCMP told public he was disguised as one of them

om Bagley was on the phone with his daughter before he left the house for his Sunday morning walk, a bit ahead of 9 a.m. Heather O'Brien sent her family a final group chat message at 9:59 a.m. And Kristen Beaton was texting back and forth with her husband almost right up to the moment she was killed, not long after 10 a.m.

All three were in close contact with loved ones early on April 19, heading about their business as usual, and completely unaware of the danger that lurked nearby — a killer stalking the province disguised as a police officer.

At a Friday news conference in Nova Scotia, the RCMP revealed that officers first heard that a shooting suspect might be driving a look-a-like police car around 10:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 18. And that by 7 a.m. on April 19, Gabriel Wortman's girlfriend had confirmed that he was indeed behind the wheel of a replica RCMP cruiser and wearing a uniform.
