We’ve got one of the weirdest videos on the internet for you today, showing triple-murder suspect Matthew Bernard leading police on a chase through Virginia… while butt naked.

Bernard, who was 18 at the time of his crimes, is accused of killing his mother, 62-year-old Joan Bernard, as well as 25-year-old Emily Bivens and her 14-month-old son Cullen.
Although details on Bernard’s mental state and motives are being kept under wraps, police reportedly claim he killed his victims with a shotgun.
As is shown in the footage below, the killer can be seen chasing and being chased by a cop, before grabbing hold of a random bystander, strangling him, and then letting him go.
It’s a completely bizarre turn of events, especially considering not once did the officers turn their guns on Bernard. As many have pointed out on social media, if it had been a black man, this story would’ve likely turned out very differently.
This man, Matthew Bernard killed the wife, child and mother-in-law of Tampa Rays minor league player Blake Bivens.
He’s a murderer & will get to see his day in court.
Mike Brown, Philando Castile, Sandra Bland & Eric Garner never did.

It’s not clear when Bernard will appear in court, although when he does he’ll be facing three separate first degree murder charges. Enjoy life in prison, dude.
