The gunman who killed seven people in a shooting at a fourth of July celebration in Highland Park, Illinois, posted videos online of him building his own home and painting a soldier on the wall of his parents’ backyard. 

Robert ‘Bobby’ Crimo III, 21, is facing seven counts of first degree murder in Lake County, Illinois, for his alleged role in the shooting. Authorities say that Crimo fired on a crowd enjoying an Independence Day parade in the town. 

Crimo also went by the moniker Awake the Rapper. 

In a blog archive obtained by DailyMail.com, many of Crimo’s bizarre videos have come to light. 

The suspect archived a livestream of him building the small shed where he lived at the time of the shooting. The shed is located beside his parents home along Pleasant Avenue in Highwood, Illinois, just north of where the shooting took place.

Crimo begins the video by asking his followers: ‘What’s up communists?’ He tells viewers that he is building a ‘cabin in the city,’ a reference to the shed. 

From there, Crimo takes the camera to show off his car that he refers to as the ‘P***y Magnet.’ The car, which has the number 47 emblazoned on the side, also has a sticker across the rear window reading: ‘P***y Magnet.’

It is unclear if that 47 is a reference to the date of the massacre – with Crimo also recently posting a stream of 47s on a now-deactivated Twitter account. 

Despite being a rapper, Crimo is shown listening to classic rock throughout the video as AC/DC, Blue Oyster Cult and Creedence Clearwater Revival’s anti war anthem ‘Fortunate Son’ can be heard. 

During an interaction with live commenters, Crimo says: ‘Death to America.’ After describing to the viewers what his home might eventually look like, saying that it will include a window and a bench, Crimo concludes his video by saying: ‘Goodbye Mr. FBI agent.’

The shed is shown fully constructed and painted in a later video titled: ‘Just do it.’ 

In a separate video that Crimo titled ‘Smiley Face Soldier (Speed Painting),’ the suspect paints an image of a man in green and black with a smiley face emoji over his face on the wall of his parent’s house. This is all done with the Darth Vader’s theme music from ‘Star Wars’ playing over it. 

Above the image of the soldier is the words that Crimo earlier painted on the wall: ‘God’s Not Dead.’ In that video, Crimo painted the words with the main theme from ‘Star Wars’ playing as the soundtrack. 

‘God’s Not Dead’ is the title of a series of high commercially successful evangelical Christian movies.

In another video, Crimo posts what appears to be an early morning shot of the street in Highland Park where the July fourth shooting took place. The video is titled: ‘Where is everyone?’

Crimo also posted a video showing him watching President Donald Trump’s motorcade leaving an airport. That video is named: ‘Awake watches Air Force One arrive.’ 

Other bizarre videos show Crimo repeating the word: ‘Freedom’ and asking the question: ‘Have you been held a prisoner of your own device?’ A similar video sees the suspect saying: ‘I need you to take a leap of faith.’ 

A group of other videos on his page, appear to show Crimo playing video games including ‘Call of Duty,’ featuring several missions where the user has to fire from a roof on to enemies.

Another group of videos show a much younger Crimo skateboarding with friends around Highland Park. 

A former classmate’s of Crimo, named only as Mackenzie, told CNN that the suspect hung around with trouble makers. 

She said: ‘They wanted to be the ‘anti-‘ group, like the rebels. The aura they presented was opposite, negative and harsh.’

Mackenzie added: ‘Whenever I heard him speak, it was very lifeless and negative. He’s always been down and not enthusiastic.’ Crimo’s genre of music is the typically downbeat LoFi hip-hop. 

A different friend said that he used to skateboard with the suspect. He said: ‘He was a skater kid. He would make YouTube videos all the time back then. Kind of DIY videos on how to grip a skateboard or replace a wheel, stuff like that.’

That friend said that by the time Crimo got to high school: ‘He was always by himself. No one seemed to try to be hid friend.’ 

Crimo dropped out of high school in 2017. Prior to this, he plastered ‘Awake’ sticker around the school. 

A former friend named Molly Handelman told CNN that she was ‘not shocked’ when she learned that Crimo was a suspect in the Highland Park shooting. 

Handelman said: ‘When he did talk, he was very soft. He didn’t seem aggressive ever, at all.’ 

She continued: ‘He made it very clear he didn’t care about school. His friends got into trouble pretty often in school. He stayed pretty reserved and quiet, so it seemed pretty interesting how he was very quiet but his friends were very rebellious.’

Paul Crimo, the suspect’s uncle, has told how Crimo was behaving normally on Sunday night. He claims he showed ‘no signs of violence’ – despite YouTube rap videos in which he glamorized school shootings. The shooter’s motive for yesterday’s attack remains unknown. 

‘I’m heartbroken. I’m so heartbroken. There were no signs that I saw that would make him do this. He’s a quiet kid. He’s usually on his own. He’s a lonely, quiet person. He keeps everything to himself,’ Paul Crimo, his uncle, told CNN. 

In the same interview, Paul Crimo confirmed that his nephew lived in a small apartment behind the house owned by Bob Crimo Jr., along Pleasant Avenue in Highwood. 

‘Everything was as normal,’ he said, adding that he was sitting on a recliner in his home the night before the shooting, looking at his computer. We are good people here, and to have this is devastating. I’m so heartbroken for all the families who lost their lives.’

In a separate interview with Fox32, Paul Crimo said: ‘I saw no signs of trouble. And if I did see signs, I would have said something. I’m deeply heartbroken and I’ll be heartbroken for the rest of my life.’
