Thursday 1 February 2024

Justin Mohn, who decapitated his father and displayed his head during a YouTube video, likely belives he is a messiah who can change the world, according to a criminal psychologist.

Dr David Holmes said the 32-year-old from Pennsylvania exhibited "schizophrenic and psychopathic" characteristics during the 14-minute video titled Mohn's Militia - Call to Arms for American Patriots.

Speaking to TalkTV's Vanessa Feltz, Dr Homes said: "There is some kind of schizophrenic trait within Justin Mohn. With schizophrenia, you sometimes get these distortions, these extremes, this focused idea that somebody needs to be eliminated and people need to be destroyed.

"I see a level of psychopathy here too, which enables people to carry out such brutal acts without empathy. You can't see a flicker of emotion across his face.

"I think he's distant from reality. Taken alongside these extreme conspiratorial trains of thought, there's this impression that it's all about him.

"He believes he's able to change the world, that he's this all powerful messiah figure. It's this aggrandisement of himself, beyond anything that is normal."

In the video, Mohn proclaims: "This is the head of Mike Mohn, my father, a federal employee of over 20 years and my father. He is now in hell for eternity as a traitor to his country."

He warned of economic collapse and a "globalist and communist" plot, referring to the media, US debt, the migrant crisis, Antifa and the "woke" agenda.

Officers who arrived at the family home in Fort Indiana Gap discovered the headless body of Michael Mohn's 68-year-old father in the bathroom.

Accusing the "traitorous Biden regime" of sending US troops to fight and die in Ukraine, Mohn claimed America was being destroyed by a "network of evil".

He said: "I and many other leaders know how to fix America, but we have to fight for it," adding: "Satan wants America to fall so he can unleash his plan on the world."
