Pennsylvania man arrested after allegedly decapitating his father and displaying his head on YouTube
A Pennsylvania man has been arrested after allegedly killing his father, before displaying his decapitated head in a gruesome YouTube video while spouting right-wing conspiracy theories.
Justin Mohn, 32, is accused of killing his father, Michael Mohn, police told NBC News.
Mohn was taken into custody about 100 miles away from the crime scene on suspicion of first-degree murder, abuse of a corpse and possessing an instrument of crime with intent, according to a court docket released early Wednesday.
He was arraigned at 4 a.m. and denied bail, Middletown Township Police Capt. Pete Feeney said.
In the YouTube video, which was titled “Mohn’s Militia – Call To Arms For American Patriots” and is cited in a police complaint, Mohn is seen wearing gloves and holding his father’s head in a plastic bag. Later, the head can be seen in a cooking pot.
Mohn says his father was a federal employee for 20 years and refers to him as a traitor, calling for the death of all federal officials, attacking President Joe Biden’s administration, the Black Lives Matter movement, the LGBTQ community and antifa activists. YouTube removed the video, which is more than 14 minutes long, hours after it was posted.
