A San Diego, California surfing teacher and self-proclaimed QAnon theorist, has confessed to driving his two toddler children across the Mexican border in a sprinter van and killing them with a spear fishing gun.
Matthew Taylor Coleman, 40, faces charges for the foreign murders of two United States citizens, his 10-month-old son and 2-year-old daughter, according to a criminal complaint filed Wednesday in a Los Angeles court.
The two children’s bodies were found on an agricultural property, the Rancho Del Descanso in Rosarito, about 35 miles south of the U.S.-Mexico border, with multiple wounds, according to Mexican authorities.
Coleman told authorities “he was enlightened by the QAnon and Illuminati conspiracy theories and was receiving visions and signs revealing that his wife…possessed serpent DNA and had passed it onto his children,” according to court documents.
Coleman and his two children were reported missing from Santa Barbara on Saturday by his wife, the mother of the two children. According to the criminal complaint, she was concerned because the family had planned to go on a camping trip together, but Coleman had left with the kids without telling her where they were going and without taking the car seats.
The couple’s sprinter van was missing, and Coleman was not responding to the wife’s texts but the mother did not believe her children were in any specific danger, according to the complaint.
Santa Barbara authorities discovered Coleman and the children were in Mexico through the Find My iPhone application and the FBI took over the case, then alerted U.S. Border Patrol agents to be on the lookout for Coleman and the children, the complaint said.
Coleman was seen on surveillance video checking into a Rosarito hotel with his two children, according to the Baja California Attorney General’s Office. At about 3 a.m., Coleman was seen leaving the hotel with his two children. He returned hours later without them. Then, he checked out of the hotel, according to the Attorney General.
When Coleman tried to re-enter the U.S. without his children on Monday, he was apprehended by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents, who were warned to be on the lookout for him.
Coleman confessed to the murders during an interview at the border.
“Coleman stated that he believed his children were going to grow into monsters so he had to kill them,” the complaint read.
In the confession, Coleman said he used a spear fishing gun to shoot his children through the chest. He said he then hid their bodies in the nearby brush and told authorities where their bodies were located.
“Coleman was asked whether he knew what he did was wrong. M Coleman stated that he knew it was wrong, but it was the only course of action that would save the world,” the complaint read.
This is enquirer news. What the heck does mentioning that the insane man was a q anon follower have to do with his mental illness. The followers of AntiFa and BLM and every leftist group is just as insane, Burning down American cities is not normal.
This is just shock story, disgusting and using this hardship for the mother to try to draw a conclusion that this happened because he is Qanon supporter is sick!
I agree!! The man was mentally ill BEFORE being a qanon follower if he even was one. I have looked at that website and I have looked at bom and antifa website I am not a follower of any. I do my own research from all sources and use critical thinking to form my educated opinion. That Qanon reference was irrelevant and how do they even know that??? It doesnt say he told police it doesnt say they interviewed him or the mother, so what is their source for that information? If a person cannot use a critical mind and differentiate between reality and yeah thats a lil far fetched. You have some underlying issues. People need to realize when they are being misled by the nose and start asking logical questions. The past 2 years have opened my eyes to how truly complacent america is, we dont question anything and just accept something as true because its made to look or sound official. Very sad! My heart goes out to that mom!
Yeah but irresponsible people put this qanon crap out there and people that are easily swayed actually believe it.
Can we please see the evidence that he was a Qanon supporter. Not one shread of evidence was given to support this claim. Even if he was his mental illness clearly was the reason for his insane behavior. Some mental illness patients believe they are Jesus. Is that supposed to imply than anyone who believes in Jesus are also mentally ill. The supposed logic here is beyond idiotic.
I deal with mental illness on a day to day basis. It can be deceptive, but it is not undetectable. Based upon my own personal knowledge and experience, it sounds as if this individual is suffering from Schizophrenia of some degree. Of course I am not a professional so anything I said can be attributed to my experiences and not a medical professional.
This is so sad and disturbing…imagine hearing the children screaming as the spears are shot into them…I hope he gets his proper punishment and wish they could do the same to him as he did to his children
