    Default Greg Rodriquez

    What bizarre news. I had become friends with him over the last year from a leopard hunt I had been on. We had talked back and forth about a grizzly bear hunt in Alaska and now he's dead??? That's definitely not good news but I guess that if the police report is true then all should be warned that sleeping with married women is never a good idea.???....?

    Well, unless the married woman is your wife. The story I read indicated that the relationship was merely a friendly basis. Either way its tragic, young guy, only 43 with a family.

    Default Man kills TV host; Sportsman Channel host killed before gun turned

    A U.S. man shot and killed the TV host of "A Rifleman's Journal," Gregory G. Rodriguez, on Friday. Police reports indicate that 41-year-old Wayne Bengston is the man who killed the TV host. Bengston reportedly found Rodriguez visiting his wife and his wife's mother. Bengston, upon finding Rodriguez at his mother-in-law's house, proceeded to shoot and kill the TV host. Bengston then assaulted his wife and grabbed his 2-year-old son. The man who killed the TV host dropped his son off at a relative's house, and drove about 25 miles away to his home. He killed himself at the home.

    The case is still being investigated, but police know that Rodriguez, known as a television personality and host of outdoor programs, was visiting a local woman staying at her mother's house at River Lakes Parkway in Whitefish.

    I am personally in shock. Greg has been a friend for 10 years. He was a great guy, genuine, congenial, always smiling and funny... I am at a loss. I send my sincere condolences to his wife and young children. He will be missed.

    Montana Man Kills TV Host Greg Rodriguez

    Sadie Genni, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
    By Sadie Gennis, TV GUIDE

    Published 9:02 am, Saturday, March 9, 2013


    A Montana man shot and killed the host of the Sportsman Channel's A Rifleman's Journal while he was visiting the shooter's wife, The Associated Press reports.
    According to police, Wayne Bengston shot and killed Gregory G. Rodriguez, a Texas man whose TV show follows him as he hunts in exotic locations, around 10:30 p.m. Thursday in Whitefish, Mont. Rodriguez, who was in Montana on business, was reportedly chatting over a glass of wine with Bengston's wife, who works for a firearms manufacturer and whom Rodriguez met at a trade show. Although police don't believe the Rodriguez was romantically involved with Bengston's wife, the two had become friends, Whitefish Police Chief Bill Dial said.

    After Bengston shot Rodriguez in an apparent jealous rage, he beat his wife on the face and head, most likely with the pistol, police said. Bengston then proceeded to take his 2-year-old son to a relative's house before driving the 25 miles to his West Glacier home and taking his own life. Law enforcement later found his body with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. "It's pretty much an open-and-closed case. Homicide and suicide," Dial said.
    Besides his work on TV, Rodriguez was also the founder and CEO of Global Adventure Outfitters, an editor at Shooting Times Magazine and a contributing editor at Petersen's Hunting, Guns & Ammo and Dangerous Game. Rodriguez is survived by a wife and two children.

    Sorry for the loss of your friend. also you may want to read post #11 our Good friend phil gave condolences to family and FRIENDS I think that includes Mrs. Benston and her son who were friends of Greg's. I however have no idea as to who Wayne Benston's wife and son are so I did not. One more thing need to watch who you point a finger at because you have 4 more pointing back at you, as I read through the thread again I don't see where you gave condolences to anyone, just saying.

    Bob , it doesn't matter if you did not know who Wayne Benston's wife and son were, they BOTH are human being's who deserve condolences and prayers for just being a part of this tragedy! ( we still don't exactly what really happened in that house in Montana to date) I did not know either one of them, but I will express my condolences and prayers not only to both of them but also to the Greg Rodriguez family for their lost! And, yes I did miss post#11, so I am sorry! But I still don't know who are the 4 other pointing fingers back at me! Use YOUR fingers and point them out! P.S keep in touch as I like your bio! You also have a GOOD first name!

    Sorry Bob if you use your index finger to point then you only have 3 fingers pointing back at you, my point was you came on here shaming everyone that posted condolences for not doing the same for Wayne Benston's wife and son when in fact you had not done it yourself. I am sorry for the troubles that Mrs. Benston and her son are going through.
