The original report follows.
A member of YouTube’s skeptic community has been arrested in the fatal shooting of a woman, who has since been identified as his female YouTube co-host. Better known as “RDP” or Skeptic Feminist on social media, 29-year-old Aleksandr Kolpakov was arrested by police and is currently being held in Mesa County, Colorado jail on suspicion of second-degree murder.
The Colorado-based YouTuber, who published numerous rants against critics of feminism, and long-winded response videos towards YouTubers on the other side of the political spectrum, always stood beneath the shadow of more prominent male feminists in the community.
According to police, the shooting happened at around 9:30pm on Saturday night in Clifton, where police were called after neighbors reported hearing several gunshots. Police arrived to discover the woman dead outside of a home. Kolpakov was arrested on the spot.
