    Yes they did. In that episode there is also a nice dialog between him end Flem.
    I think that was in season 2... Anyway, the first three seasons are now on Netflix if you have a subscription.

    "On Saturday, February 2, 2013, Kyle and a companion, Chad Littlefield, were shot and killed at the Rough Creek Ranch-Lodge-Resort shooting range in Erath County, Texas[21] by 25-year-old fellow veteran Marine Eddie Ray Routh, whom Kyle and Littlefield had purportedly taken to the gun range in an effort to help him with what they were told by his mother was post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).[22][23]

    Local police captured Routh after a short freeway chase, which ended when Routh, who had left the scene of the shootings in Kyle's Ford F-350 truck, crashed into a police cruiser. Routh was arrested just before 9 p.m. the same day in Lancaster, Texas.[24] Erath County sheriffs said the motive for the killing was unclear.[25] Routh, from Lancaster, was arraigned February 2, 2013, on two counts of capital murder, according to Sgt. Lonny Haschel of the Texas Department of Public Safety. He was taken to the Erath County Jail for holding under a $3 million bond.[26]" Source, Wikipedia.

    Thought it was easier to cite wikipedia then try to explain it myself.

While he was helping one guy, another fellow came up behind him and shot him in the back of the head. I think he shot the other vet as well. No ryme or reason really. No one saw it coming. The guy then jumped in Chris' truck and took off. High speed chase ensued and I believe he crashed. Absolutely a horrific event. No matter what you think about Chris, IMHO he was a true American hero, and he will be missed.

    At the time of Mr. Kyle's death, he was working on a book titled 'American Gun'. It was finished after his murder by his wife and a ghost writer. The first chapter, 'The American Longrifle' was featured in 'The American Rifleman' a month or so back. I picked up a copy a few weeks ago for my grandson for Christmas. Can't wait til he starts reading it so I can borrow it.

    I always knew that Ventura was nuts, but what a POS he is for not dropping the suit. Personally I could care less whether Kyle kicked his ass or not, but to bring a defamation suit against him for it, and continue it against his widow is such a p*ssy move.
