- A man has been charged with killing his two children who he believed had “lizard people” DNA.
- Matthew Taylor Coleman told the feds he is a QAnon follower, according to a criminal complaint.
- According to court documents, he believed he was “saving the world from monsters.”
A California surf instructor and told federal investigators that he killed his two young children on a trip to Mexico because he believed that his wife had “serpent DNA” and that his children would turn into monsters, according to a criminal complaint filed in the Central District of California on Wednesday.
According to the criminal complaint, Matthew Taylor Coleman, 40, was charged with the foreign murder of US nationals, relating to the deaths of his 2-year-old son and 10-month-old daughter.
Federal investigators alleged in the complaint that Coleman traveled to Rosarito, Mexico, in the family’s Mercedes sprinter van, with the two young children. His wife was reportedly concerned that he left without a car seat for their youngest and called the police because she didn’t know where they were going.
Once his wife grew concerned that he kidnapped the children, federal investigators tracked him down were able to locate him and detain him at the San Ysidro Port of Entry.
According to the criminal complaint, in Coleman’s interview with investigators, he told them he murdered his children with a spearfishing gun and disposed of their bodies in bushes nearby.
Coleman told investigators that he was “enlightened by Qanon and Illuminati conspiracy theories,” and that he was “receiving visions and signs,” and “saving the world from monsters,” believing that his wife possessed serpent DNA and passed it on to his children, according to the complaint filed by FBI agent Jennifer Bannon.
He also told investigators that he “knew it was wrong, but it was the only course of action that would save the world,” according to the complaint.
A judge ordered Coleman held in Santa Ana, without bond. His arraignment is set for August 31. Information about an attorney was not immediately available.
QAnon is a right-wing conspiracy theory with a base that has swelled since 2017. The basis of the theory alleges that former president Donald Trump is fighting a “deep state” cabal of human traffickers.
Support for the unfounded conspiracy theory has expanded to include a decades-old conspiracy theory about lizard-people, or humans that are part reptile and shape-shifting, in order to subjugate and control the human population and seize political power.
That belief, popularized first in fantasy writing, bled into the QAnon realm and was also a belief held by the Nashville bomber.
