A Michigan man threatened to kill Christopher Wray, FBI Director, and a California congressman amid numerous accusations of sex trafficking.
Neil Matthew Walter (32), was arrested and prosecutors revealed plans to accuse him of transmitting threats. This could lead to up to five years imprisonment. After Walter left a threat voicemail to Rep. John Garamendi, D-CA, the U.S. Capitol Police started investigating Walter and discovered that Wray was being threatened.
Authorities quickly located Walter as the source of the threat and began to search his Facebook profile. They found comments he had made on a livestream from Wray’s appearance at Capitol Hill on November 19.
Authorities also discovered posts by Walter citing theories similar to QAnon. This conspiracy suggested that an evil cabal comprised of elites run the country and are involved in satanic child eating practices and pedophilia.
The complaint stated that Walter’s Facebook comments, which included many comments, suggested that half of the Senators, the FBI and CIA, police, Tom Cruise, Elon Musk, and the FBI were involved in a child rape ring. It listed various locations, including the United States Capitol Building.
Walter also threatened Garamendi via a Facebook post.
Capitol Police called a Genesee County detective in Michigan to check on Walter. He made a series of claims about his children being raped during one interview. His father eventually arrived and revealed that Walter was suffering from a mental illness. According to the complaint, he had been in a treatment center and owned a firearm.
