In early August, The Experts, Inc., the employer of accused Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis, intervened on his behalf while he was on a business trip in Rhode Island.

After successive nights of knocking on doors and waking people up in a Newport Residence Inn, The New York Times reports that Alexis's employer called him back home, removing him from the hotel:

“Brenda from The Experts Inc. called re: Mr. Alexis in 407,” a Residence Inn employee noted in a log dated Aug. 7 that was reviewed by The New York Times.

“She explained that he is unstable and the company is bringing him home,” the entry continued. “She asked me to check the room (it was vacant), and check him out.”

The call, suggesting concern about Alexis' state of mind, was placed six weeks before the former Navy reservist opened fire and killed 12 people at the Washington Navy Yard.
