    The gunman who murdered nine people including his sister in Dayton, Ohio, earlier this month is being described as a "funny, articulate and intelligent" with a "kind smile."

    Funeral directors at Conner & Koch Life Celebration Home in Bellbrook posted glowing, online obituaries of the Dayton shooter and sister Megan "Baby Chica" Betts, who was gunned down during her brother's Aug. 4 attack, without mentioning how they died.

    "A funny, articulate and intelligent man with striking blue eyes and a kind smile, Connor Stephen Betts, age 24, of Bellbrook, passed away Sunday, August 4th, 2019," the obit casually stated.

    The posting goes on to mention that Betts was a grill cook at Chipotle, an avid reader, enjoyed swimming, was a Boy Scout, was in his high school marching band, played Xbox games and loved watching the Fox animated show "Bob's Burgers."
