RICHMOND, Ky. (WXIX) - The mother of the suspect in a central Kentucky home invasion murder says her son had been acting erratic, certain nuclear war was imminent.

Katie Gilday posted the message on her Facebook after her son, 23-year-old Shannon Gilday, was identified by state police as a suspect in the Feb. 22 murder of Jordan Morgan.

Kentucky State Police confirmed to FOX19 NOW a bunker could be the motive for the home invasion murder.

The Morgans’ $6.5 million mansion is equipped with a doomsday bunker, Garretts Real Estate Group’s website shows.

The 2,000 square-foot shelter is built 26′ underground and can “withstand a Seismic 12 earthquake” and it has two escape tunnels, the website shows.

The bunker is valued at $3 million, according to the Lexington Herald Leader.

State police issued an active arrest warrant for Shannon on Thursday.

He is considered armed and dangerous, according to state police.

Shannon is described as 6′, 175 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes.
