In a shocking incident in Pennsylvania, a man has been arrested for allegedly decapitating his father and displaying the gruesome act in a video on YouTube, according to NBC News. Justin Mohn, 32, is accused of the horrific crime against his father, Michael Mohn, according to police sources.
The arrest occurred about 100 miles from the crime scene, with Mohn facing charges of first-degree murder, abuse of a corpse, and possessing an instrument of crime with intent. His arraignment took place at 4 a.m., where he was denied bail.
The YouTube video, which has since been removed, showed Mohn holding his father’s head in a plastic bag, and later in a cooking pot, while expressing right-wing conspiracy theories and attacking various political figures and movements. YouTube’s spokesperson stated that the video violated their policies against graphic violence and violent extremism, leading to its removal and the termination of Mohn’s channel.
According to a police complaint filed in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, officers discovered the decapitated body of Michael Mohn in the bathroom of their residence, with his head found in a nearby bedroom. The complaint also detailed the return of Mohn’s wife to find her husband deceased and her son missing.
Justin Mohn had previously filed lawsuits against federal agencies and was known for his social media activity, promoting self-released music and books. One of his books, “The Revolution Leader’s Survival Guide,” released in 2017, contained a letter to then-President Donald Trump warning of a peaceful revolution.
The Bucks County District Attorney’s Office stated that police were called to the scene following a report from the victim’s wife. The investigation is ongoing, with the police chief indicating that Mohn was arrested near a National Guard training facility, although his reasons for being there were unclear.
This alarming case has garnered significant attention due to the nature of the crime and the use of social media to publicize the act, raising concerns about online platforms and the dissemination of violent content.
