A Pennsylvania man was arrested for allegedly killing his father and showing his decapitated head in a video posted to YouTube, where he ranted about right-wing conspiracy theories. Justin Mohn, 32, of Levittown, Pa., was charged with murder and abuse of a corpse. He was denied bail and is due back in court on Feb. 8, reports the Wall Street Journal. The Middletown Township Police Department responded to a call about a homicide Tuesday night and found Mohn’s father, Michael, decapitated. Police found a machete and a large kitchen knife in the bathtub. The victim’s head was in a plastic bag inside of a pot. Mohn allegedly took his father’s car and was found by police in Fort Indiantown Gap, Pa.,120 miles away from his home.
Mohn allegedly posted a video to YouTube titled “Mohn’s Militia – Call to Arms for American Patriots” where he railed against “the woke mob.” Mohn picked up the severed head of his father and identified him as a federal employee, saying “he is now in hell for eternity.” His rant included attacks on the Biden administration, the Black Lives Matter movement, antifa and LGBTQ organizations. He called for killing federal employees, including judges and politicians. Federal officials have warned about the potential for political violence before the 2024 election. The Department of Homeland Security said the “threat of violence from individuals radicalized in the United States will remain high” this year. YouTube removed the video and Justin Mohn’s channel for violating its policies regarding graphic violence and violent extremism. The platform will remove any re-uploads of the video. YouTube said it removed 8.1 million videos from July through September last year.
