Why Did Josh Danehower Kill Gret?

Josh Danehower's motive behind shooting Gret Glyer is yet a mystery. Police stated that they are still looking for a reason behind the tragic gunshot murder.

More information on the case will be made public once the interrogation is over. Multiple shots were fired at Mr. Glyer when he was sleeping in bed, and it was discovered throughout the inquiry.

The website DonorSee was created by Glyer, and it bills itself as a "giving platform" that enables donors to give "directly to people in need" and to initiatives aimed at reducing poverty all across the world.

In a statement on Wednesday, Owen O'Doherty, the temporary CEO of DonorSee, which employs roughly 15 employees, said that he is unfamiliar with Danehower and that Danehower has no relation to the website.

O'Doherty added that he and his coworkers "are still very shocked and deeply devastated" by the shooting. He described Glyer as "an inspirational leader and an amazing guy."

Per the Hunt, there is no evidence that Mr. Danehower coordinated with anyone. The murder appears to have been done by him alone.
