Clinton Wesley Morgan, 71, lived in a house that sits on a 200-acre lot in Richmond, Kentucky, United States. The house, which was built in 2014, has nine bedrooms and an underground bunker.
Listed for sale at $6.5 million, the house was advertised as being capable of withstanding nuclear, biological and chemical fallout, the Lexington Herald Leader reported in January 2022. Its fully stocked and furnished doomsday bunker is valued at $3 million.
Morgan is a businessman and a former Kentucky lawmaker. He is the husband of Lindsey Morgan and the father of Jordan Morgan, 32, and Sydney Morgan.
At 4:00 a.m. on February 22, 2022, Katie Gilday‘s son Shannon V. Gilday, 23, of Taylor Mill, Kentucky allegedly forced entry into Clinton’s house in Richmond. Wearing camouflage and tactical clothing and armed with a rifle, Shannon allegedly shot Jordan more than once while she was in bed before exchanging gunshots with Clinton.
Jordan did not survive. Her father was taken to the University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky with non-life-threatening injuries.
On February 25, 2022, Katie took to Facebook to express condolences to Clinton and Jordan’s family and to plead to Shannon to turn himself in. Katie wrote that her son “has not been of sound mind the last couple of weeks, distraught with the certainty a nuclear war is imminent.”
“He spoke of building a bunker and the CIA following him,” Katie said of Shannon. “I tried to get him psychiatric help but to no avail.”
Just after 4:30 a.m. on February 28, 2022, the Madison County Sheriff’s Office found Shannon walking along Barnes Mill Road in Madison County. He was taken into custody without incident.
At around 2:30 p.m., Shannon was booked into the Madison County Detention Center in Richmond and charged with murder, attempted murder, assault, burglary and criminal mischief. His bond was set at $2 million.
