A 32-year-old man from Bucks County, Pennsylvania, allegedly beheaded his father. He published a video on YouTube accusing him of “treason” for being a federal administration employee. The perpetrator was arrested by the police and charged.
The detainee was 32-year-old Justin Mohn, who presented himself as a musician and book author on the Internet. According to the Bucks County police in central Pennsylvania, officers responded to the victim’s home at the request of his mother and found the body of Mohn’s father with his head cut off in the house. The suspect was captured a few hours later.
The man was charged Wednesday with first-degree murder, abuse of a corpse and possession of a murder weapon. The Reuters agency, citing the prosecutor’s office, reported that it was not possible to leave custody on bail.
He described his father as a “traitor”
On Tuesday, the perpetrator published a several-minute-long video on YouTube, showing the head of his father, whom he called a “traitor” for being a federal administration employee. He also launched a rambling political tirade against President Joe Biden and his involvement in the war in Ukraine, as well as against illegal immigrants, sexual minorities and “globalists and communists.” He also announced a revolution against the state.
The video was removed by YouTube only a few hours after its publication, after it had already spread widely on social media.
As Middletown Township Police Chief Joe Bartorilla told The Washington Post, the perpetrator’s specific motive has not yet been determined. He added that he “has some guesses” about this.
The defendant published several of his books on Amazon. Among them was a title such as “The Coming Bloody American Revolution.” He also sued federal authorities for making him take out a student loan and blamed them for his problems finding a job.
