Waller County authorities late Tuesday captured a 22-year-old online animation critic suspected of gunning down three of his relatives in the family's Waller home.
Trey Eric Sesler was caught in Magnolia Tuesday night after the bodies of his parents and his brother were discovered around 1 p.m. in their residence on Farr near Dewey.Police said they believe Sesler may have had a high-powered weapon with him and had recently made inquiries about body armor. He was considered armed and dangerous, possibly driving a 2010 black Ford Mustang with Texas license plates VDY058.Authorities checked on the home after a call from concerned family members."They hadn't heard from their relatives. They understood there had been some kind of disturbance maybe at the house," Waller County Sheriff Glenn Smith said earlier Tuesday.When officers passed by a window, they saw the body of a deceased male, Smith said.Inside the house, authorities found Lawton Ray Sesler Jr., his wife, Rhonda Wyse Sesler, and their son, Mark Alan Sesler, 26. Each had been shot to death with what appeared to be a high-powered rifle, Smith said."This was a scene that had a lot of violence," Smith added. "The house was ransacked."Trey Sesler was absent and a search of the home led police to identify him as the prime suspect in the triple slaying."There was evidence at the scene. It was pretty obvious," Smith said.According to public records, Lawton Sesler, 58, taught at Robinson Elementary in Cy-Fair Independent School District. He and Rhonda Sesler, 57, had been married 34 years.Over the last 4½ years, Trey Sesler developed an online following as "Mr. Anime" - an alter ego who was the star and producer of hundreds of Japanese animation reviews.His YouTube channel, Lens Cap Productions, also features several amateur short films, some of which included his brother.Trey Sesler's Facebook page indicates that he attended Waller High School.In December, he asked his Facebook friends to visit his YouTube channel and click on ads to "help me build my income" and posted: "finally work out of the home, about time" later that month."I would absolutely love to make a living off reviewing anime," he beamed in another video earlier this month.Last week, Sesler posted a one-minute video indicating that he was excited about a new job."The good news is that I now have found a full-time job in a department that I am interested in, which is film," he said in the March 13 footage to his viewers, adding that he'd be posting fewer anime reviews.By late Tuesday, his YouTube channel commenters weren't posting about Japanese cartoons. They were chatting about Trey Sesler's alleged involvement in slaying his family.

He seemed like a sane guy in his vids.
EDIT: He admits he killed his own family. And comments from one of his Fanbase.
