MIDDLETOWN TWP., Pennsylvania – The shocking case of a man accused of decapitating his father in Bucks County has left neighbors in Middletown Township puzzled and frightened.
Residents of the neighborhood described 32-year-old Justin Mohn’s behavior as increasingly odd and unsettling in the months leading up to the incident. One neighbor recalled feeling uncomfortable with Mohn’s constant staring and unusual behavior, prompting them to make calls to the police.
While neighbors noted a change in Mohn’s behavior, they did not report any violent actions. One neighbor even mentioned that they didn’t feel threatened, but found Mohn’s behavior to be strange and bizarre.
Mohn now faces charges after being accused of beheading his father and posting a disturbing video on YouTube, displaying the severed head. The incident occurred at the 100 block of Upper Orchard Drive in Middletown Township, where the victim’s wife discovered the body.
The accused was later apprehended by the Police a couple of hours later, about 100 miles away by a National Guard base in Fort Indiantown Gap. Another neighbor shared the shock of accidentally opening the gruesome YouTube video, recognizing Mohn from their everyday encounters in the neighborhood.
The disturbing 14-minute-long YouTube video displayed Mohn referring to himself as a militia leader, making threats towards federal officials, and accusing his father, Michael Mohn, of being a traitor due to his employment with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
In response to the tragedy, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Philadelphia District expressed their deep sorrow and offered thoughts and prayers to the Mohn family, emphasizing their commitment to providing support to their grieving employees. The video garnered 5,000 views before being removed, prompting a statement from a YouTube spokesperson assuring that they are actively monitoring for any potential re-upload of the video.
The concerning and horrific series of events have left the community in shock and disbelief, with neighbors expressing their deep concerns and sharing their encounters with the accused prior to the tragic incident.
