You stumble upon some wild stuff online, particularly on YouTube, known for its share of outlandish videos. However, this particular video in question crossed all boundaries.
A young man from Pennsylvania is now behind bars for supposedly killing his father and then, in a move that’s beyond gruesome, proudly showcasing the decapitated head on a YouTube video that’s since been taken down. Details on the brutal murder are still under investigation, but according to reports so far, it appears that the man killed his father due to conflicting political views.
Justin Mohn, 32, is accused of killing his father, Michael Mohn, police told NBC News. While police did not release the victim’s age, public records show him to have been 68.
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 and 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.
