OAK CREEK - On Tuesday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation was expected to release its review of the massacre at the Oak Creek Sikh Temple.

According to sources, the FBI were set release a statement Tuesday detailing the findings of the federal probe.

Temple members have been telling TODAY'S TMJ4 about what they have learned about the investigation.

Wade Page opened fire at the temple back in August, killing six innocent people before taking his own life.

There was no initial explanation about why Page, an army veteran with alleged ties to racist skinhead bands, shot and killed temple members.

Dashcam video released earlier in November shows Oak Creek Police Officer Sam Lenda taking cover as Page went on a rampage nearly three months ago.

Police originally called this an act of domestic terrorism.

After an investigation which included more than 100 leads worldwide and 180 federal subpoenias, the FBI believed the Page acted alone.

They learned about Page's background and how his life was falling apart months before the shooting.

"We are looking as to why he chose Sikh Temple, why he would want to come here and kill innocent people," said Harpreet Rajasansi.

Members say they may never know some of the answers they want.
