41-year-old suspected killer & driver, Shannon Brandt, who admitted to hitting 18-year-old, Cayler Ellingson, with his car over the teen's conservative views, was RELEASED yesterday on $50k bond

41-year-old suspected killer Shannon Brandt, who admitted to hitting 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson with his car over the teen's conservative views, was RELEASED yesterday on $50k bond. (Read More Here).

Brandt has been charged with vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of a deadly accident.

Jail confirmed to me that Shannon Brandt, who reportedly confessed to killing a North Dakota teen because the 18yo victim was "part of a Republican extremist group," posted bond and is back on the streets.

Since his release, it appears Brandt started scrubbing his social media. 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson was killed in an apparent politically motivated attack. Moments before he was hunted down and slain in an alleyway, the teen called his mom to come rescue him. Here's the GoFundMe page for Ellingson's funeral expenses:

"Hi, I’m a lifelong Family Friend of Cayler’s Mom Sheri Larson Ellingson. Sheri and my younger sister were very close friends I had spent many years with Sheri and as the years we grew older and Sheri was united in marriage with her Husband Cole Ellingson and they made their home in Grace City ND, raising two wonderful and loving Sons, Chase and Cayler. Chase and Cayler are the heart of Sheri and Coles life. Unfortunately, in the early hours on Sunday, September 18, 2022 their lives changed forever. Cayler was taken way too soon from them and their other son Chases Life A thing no parent should ever have to endure in their life, is to lose a child. Cayler has went to heaven and will be missed by his Mom, Dad, Brother, Uncles, Aunts, cousins many Family and Friends. With this being said I would like to set a goal to help Sheri, Cole and Chase with Funeral expenses and anything to help them through this whole grieving process. Sheri is a Carrington ND graduate in my home town along with Chase and Cayler. Cole grew up in the Grace City area. Please lend a helping hand to help this family in such a huge and tragic loss of Cayler. God Blessings and Prayers to all of Cayler’s Family and Friends.

"We have now over doubled our fundraising goal in Honor of Cayler and the wonderful young man he was. I thank each and everyone of you personally and I know the Family of Cayler’s does as well. Thank you for honoring and supporting Cayler for who he truly was. A young man with his whole adult life ahead of himself. So much stripped away from himself and from his family. They now have to endure a path no parent wants, no parent should have to endure. His innocent life he had yet to look forward to and live for. His parents will never see their young son graduate college, get married or have grandchildren. It’s all come down to thee worst nightmare or call any of us parents want or should ever have to go through.
Please let me thank you for the family and know that they feel the heartfelt messages, generosity and kindness from all of you! It’s hard for them to explain at this moment in time. But know how loved they feel from each and everyone of you in honoring their son Cayler
God Blessing to all of you for honoring him and to Cayler’s Family and Friends.

An affidavit says Brandt fatally struck the teen over "a political argument." Brandt claimed Ellingson was "threatening" him and believed he was "calling people to come get him." Ellingson's mom said he was being "chased" by Brandt, didn't know him, and was calling her for help.

I've obtained a search warrant and criminal complaint that say Brandt failed to render aid to the dying teen who was found slain in an alleyway, fled the fatal hit-and-run crime scene, and returned to his residence in a different city where he was later arrested.

Brandt had a tough time understanding the charges against him in the killing of 18-year-old Cayler Ellingson.

"I have a job, a life and a house and things I don't want to see go by the wayside—family that are very important to me," Brandt told a judge at his first court hearing.
