There’s No Evidence Omar Mateen Was A Closet Case, Had A Boyfriend Or Used Gay Apps

Despite rumors that Orlando massacre gunman Omar Mateen used gay dating apps, watched gay porn and even had a secret boyfriend, federal investigators say they’ve found zero evidence to support these claims.

After scouring Mateen’s laptop, cell phone and the long trail of communications he left behind, nothing has emerged to suggest he led any sort of secret gay life, according to an anonymous official tied to the ongoing investigation.

Electronic devices belonging to men who claimed to have communicated with Mateen online were also reviewed but no links were made.

Investigators are still actively following leads about Mateen’s purported interest in gay clubs and gay men, but it’s looking like all that talk of him being a closet case may have been just that, talk.

At least one person who claimed to have chatted with Mateen online is sticking to his story, however.

Cord Cedeno was one of the first people to come forward and tell the media that he’d definitely spotted Mateen at Pulse prior to the massacre and had also interacted with him online. He is standing by that account, despite what federal investigators say.

Kevin West also told media he’d chatted with Mateen on Jack’d, and that he believes the gunman either scrubbed his device of any records or used a different phone.

“It’s almost certain that he covered his tracks,” West said. “Lots of people are still secretive about it. They say they don’t show their face online because, ‘I’m not out to my family, or because of my career.’ ”

Federal investigators say they believe men making such claimes are either confusing Mateen with someone else or are not credible.
