Levittown, Pennsylvania –
A man has been charged with first-degree murder and abuse of a corpse after his father was found decapitated in Pennsylvania over a video on social media that allegedly showed police holding up his head. They are investigating, authorities said Wednesday.
The father was found decapitated Tuesday night in the bathroom of his home in Middletown Township, Bucks County. The son, identified as Justin Mohn, 32, was arrested about 100 miles (100 miles) away in Fort Indiantown Gap, police said.
“We had no idea where he was going or what his intentions were when he left here,” said Lt. Pete Feeney of the Middletown Township Police Department. We were able to pinpoint the location.”
Police took him into custody without incident, Feeney said.
Mohn was also arrested on weapons charges, but was arraigned early Wednesday and held without bail. He is scheduled for a hearing on February 8th.
An attorney for Mr. Mohn was not listed in court records Wednesday morning, and a message seeking comment on his behalf was left at a listing for his phone number. The Associated Press emailed the court clerk’s office asking if they still have an attorney.
Feeney said detectives are investigating a video Mohn allegedly posted that appears to show him threatening federal law enforcement while holding up what appears to be his father’s head. He said there was.
