A 32-year-old man in Pennsylvania, US, is accused of decapitating his father and displaying the severed head in a disturbing video on YouTube. The gruesome act allegedly took place in their Levittown home on Tuesday, and the accused, Justin Mohn, has since been arrested.
According to local media reports, authorities were alerted to the situation on Tuesday evening when Justin Mohn uploaded a 14-minute video on YouTube, in which he held up what he claimed was the severed head of his 68-year-old father, Michael Mohn, wrapped in plastic.
“He is now in hell for eternity as a traitor to his country,” Justin Mohn says of his father in the video.
The video, which has since been removed from the platform, featured Justin Mohn condemning the US government, the Biden administration, and various groups he blamed for the country’s decline, including “woke mobs” and migrants. He also put bounties on the FBI director, the Attorney General and the Supreme Court Chief Justice.
In his rant, Mohn called for relatives of federal employees to commit murder and expressed delusional beliefs about being seen as a messiah and a rightful presidential candidate. He also raged against the LGBTQ+ community, the Black Lives Matter movement, and “tax-evading big tech companies”.
The suspect, described as the youngest son of the family, was apprehended at Fort Indiantown Gap, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday night and subsequently transferred to Middletown the next day.
“We got called to the home, and officers went in and discovered the father upstairs deceased,” said Middletown Police chief Joe Bartorilla, speaking to reporters outside the crime scene late Tuesday night.
