Bedell, from Hollister, CA, has been described as "very well-educated" and well-dressed. John Patrick Bedell's Facebook page and other Internet postings have led investigators to believe that Bedell's motives were to "to see that justice is served" in the death of Marine Col. James Sabow, an alleged suicide victim who was thought by conspiracy theorists to have been murdered in a coverup of secret military operations in Central America related to drug smuggling.
