US Federal investigators have scoured Omar Mateen’s laptop computer, cell phone and the trail of communications he left behind and so far have found no evidence that he led a secret gay life.

They’ve also reviewed the electronic devices of men who said they’d communicated with him on gay dating apps and so far have found no link. They have not stopped following leads about Mateen’s reported interest in gay clubs and gay men, but federal officials reported Thursday that they’ve found no photographs, text messages, smart phone apps or gay pornography that suggest Mateen was gay or was trying to find a gay lover.

Federal investigators believe men who thought they knew Mateen may be confusing him with someone else.
