Penn State Alum Charged With Murder After Decapitating Father
A 2014 Penn State graduate was charged with first-degree murder Wednesday after decapitating his father and displaying the severed head in a video uploaded to YouTube Tuesday night in Bucks County.
Justin Mohn is accused of first-degree murder, abuse of a corpse, and possessing an instrument of a crime. He beheaded his 68-year-old father, a retired civil engineer.
The graphic, 14-minute video features Mohn stating right-wing sentiments and anger toward his father who was a federal employee and part of “far-left woke mobs.” Mohn retrieved his father’s head from a pot in his family’s Levittown home and displayed it in the video uploaded to YouTube before his arrest.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that police responded to the Middletown Township home around 7 p.m. and found Michael Mohn in a “large amount of blood” and a machete and a large kitchen knife life in the bathtub, according to the criminal complaint. Mohn’s father’s head was wrapped in a plastic bag in a pot, and bloody rubber gloves were found in the home.
Mohn was arrested at 9 p.m. on Tuesday nearly 100 miles away in Fort Indiantown Gap at the Pennsylvania National Guard headquarters.
Mohn graduated from Penn State in 2014 with a degree in agribusiness management.
