Gruesome Murder and Conspiracy Theories: Pennsylvania Man Arrested

Justin Mohn, a 32-year-old Pennsylvania resident, was arrested after allegedly murdering his father and displaying the decapitated head in a YouTube video while voicing right-wing conspiracy theories. Mohn was arrested 100 miles from the crime scene and is accused of first-degree murder, abuse of a corpse, and possession of a crime instrument with intent, according to a court docket.

In the YouTube video, titled “Mohn’s Militia – Call To Arms For American Patriots”, Mohn brandishes his father’s head in a plastic bag, later visible in a cooking pot. He calls his father a traitor and criticizes President Joe Biden’s administration, the Black Lives Matter movement, the LGBTQ community, and antifa activists. YouTube removed the 14-minute video for violating its policies on graphic violence and violent extremism.

Prior Federal Lawsuits

Mohn has previously filed three lawsuits against federal agencies, including the U.S. government. He claimed they negligently caused him to incur student loans between 2010 and his 2014 graduation from Pennsylvania State University, court records show. He also unsuccessfully sued former employer, Progressive Insurance, for alleged wrongful termination and sex discrimination against men.

Gruesome Scene

Police were alerted to the crime scene by the suspect’s mother, Denice Mohn. They found Michael Mohn’s decapitated body in a downstairs bathroom, with a machete and a large kitchen knife in the bathtub. His head was found in a cooking pot in a nearby bedroom. Later, police apprehended Mohn near the National Guard training facility at Fort Indiantown Gap.

Mohn’s past social media activity includes promoting his self-released music and books, such as a nonfiction work claiming to lead a peaceful revolution if positive change did not come to America and the world soon.

Mohn has had other prior encounters with the police, some dating back to a decade ago. At the time of writing, no attorney was listed for Mohn in court records.
