- Justin Mohn, 32, killed his dad Michael at their home on Tuesday
- He then held a bag containing his dad’s head up during a YouTube video
- Mohn was arrested on Tuesday night, two hours from his home
A self-proclaimed ‘messiah’ decapitated his 68-year-old father – then held up the victim’s head in a politically-charged YouTube video blasting the federal government and the Biden administration.
Justin Mohn, 32, is in custody Pennsylvania after his father Michael was found by his wife, beheaded, inside of their home in the quiet Philadelphia suburb of Levittown.
Hours before his arrest, Mohn held up what he claimed was his father’s head during a politically charged rant that he posted on his YouTube channel.
Mohn said many saw him as the messiah, and wanted him as president, and urged relatives living with federal employees to murder them. He blamed the federal government for ‘woke mobs’ and migrants he claims are destroying the United States, and ranted against ‘globalists and communists’.
The appalling 14 minute clip – which remained on YouTube for six hours after it was posted at 5:30pm, before being taken down – sees Mohn hold up his father’s head in a bloodied plastic bag placed inside a silver, having declared: ‘Violence is the only solution to the federal government’s treason.’
He says: ‘This is the head of Mike Mohn, a federal employee of over 20 years and my father. He is now in hell for eternity as a traitor to his country.’
DailyMail.com has been unable to confirm whether Mike Mohn was a federal employee. Retirement age for federal employees is typically 62 years old.

DailyMail.com has chosen to obscure images from the clip, which is too disturbing to reproduce.
LevitttownNow said Mohn was arrested after 9pm ET on Tuesday, two hours from his home in Fort Indiana Gap, Pennsylvania.
They confirmed the victim had been beheaded and that the YouTube video was part of the same investigation.
Police were first called to the house just after 7pm on Tuesday and found a headless body in its bathroom, said Chief Joe Bartorilla of Middletown Police Department.
‘We got called to the home and officers went in and discovered the father upstairs deceased,’ he said.
‘We’re getting contacted by some people in the community that know us, and know him and his family.
‘And we’re hearing a lot. Obviously he’s well known in the community just by the calls we’re getting.’
Bartorilla said he had warned the family about the video.
‘I know he has siblings. We have told (the victim’s wife) to notify them before they see the video, or the video is sent to them,’ he added.
Mohn is listed as living there with his father; his mother Denice, 63; his brother Zachary, 35, and his sister Stephanie, 38.
His father is believed to have owned two businesses – a cleaning company, and a literacy initiative. There is no evidence of his being a federal employee.

The video was posted on Mohn’s YouTube channel, where he had 115 followers. There are now only four videos on the channel, which feature him singing out of tune and playing music, with a photo of his face.
In the beheading clip, he rants about taxes, declaring that the economy is ‘near destruction’ and most Americans can ‘no longer afford the American dream.’
Mohn went on to say he was offering a $1 million bounty to anyone who could kill top officials including FBI Director Christopher Wray, Attorney General Merrick Garland and former Attorney General Bill Barr.
He said there was a ‘globalist and communist’ plot against the United State, before ranting about the federal government and holding up his dad’s head in a silver bucket.
Mohn’s rant continued, addressing US postal workers, journalists, federal debt and the federal reserve, the border crisis, Antifa and the woke agenda.

He said ‘the traitorous Biden regime’ wanted to send ‘America’s military overseas to fight for Ukraine and die in a Russian winter.’
Mohn ranted against ‘tax-evading big tech companies’ and those behind the U.S. prison system.
Mohn railed against a ‘network of evil’ he said was ‘plaguing’ America.
He claimed to have worked as a contractor for Microsoft, and saw how the company was ‘evading billions of dollars in taxes’. He claimed he ‘whistleblew to the IRS about five years ago, but they simply looked the other way.’
Mohn said he had uncovered a scheme while living in Colorado, whereby the companies created ‘a constant level of unemployment, and a constant level of homelessness, and a constant level of crime, to fill up the prisons.’
Mohn said: ‘When I filed a complaint to the FBI of this labor racketing, they showed up at my door to threaten me with arrest.’

The deeply disturbed Mohn said ‘Satan wants America to fall so he can unleash his plan on the world.’
Mohn then proclaimed: ‘I and many other leaders know how to fix America, but we have to fight for it.’
He said many within the political parties saw him as the best candidate for president before the 2020 election – and said the former governor of Colorado, John Hickenlooper, and former governor of Ohio, John Kasich, would confirm his story, because their 2020 campaigns ‘were sacrificed for me’.
Mohn said he felt he could have been ‘the first unanimously-elected candidate for both parties since George Washington.’
He added: ‘But I was betrayed by the FBI, the federal courts, and my own family, because there are people who believe I am the messiah. This belief that I am the messiah is why you have never heard this story on the news, because it would spread that belief.
‘I’m not saying I am the messiah, as I would never compare myself to Jesus Christ. I’m just saying, that’s why I was betrayed.’
And he ended by quoting the Bible at length, saying he had ‘a sacred task.’
Mohn set about trying to make a career in music, with albums he put on his YouTube channel

Clues to Mohn’s downwards spiral are to be found in a legal battle against the United States government, with Mohn suing them for negligently providing him with a student loan which made him ‘an overeducated white man’, unable to find work.
Mohn, in a filing made shortly before Christmas, sought to blame the government for his woes. The filing was the fourth time Mohn attempted to sue, seeking $10 million in damages from the federal government – a case which has no legal grounds.
He said in the filing that he was a 2014 graduate of Pennsylvania State University, with a degree in agribusiness management.
According to his complaint, Mohn ‘began paying his monthly student loan six months later. But then Mr Mohn could not find a full-time job at some unpleaded later time. He obtained only part-time jobs.’
Mohn said he then moved to Colorado, to take a full-time job at a credit union, and later took a job with an insurance company.
But, according to his complaint, he saw ‘his work post-graduate years as ‘malemployment.”
Mohn appears to have wanted to carve out a career as a musician.
On his YouTube page, he writes: ‘Justin Mohn released his first album, ‘The Story Of Humanity,’ in September of 2017. His second album, ‘Colofunkinrado,’ was released September of 2018. His music style is a blend of rock, funk, and hip-hop, using piano and organ as primary instruments along with explicit lyrics, drums, synthesized bass, and other synthesized instruments.’

Mohn also wrote poetry and conspiracy-laden manifestos.
One of his books was entitled: ‘Poems I Wrote While Stoned: A Collection Of Poems’.
Another, ‘The Punishing,’ is set in the year 2481, with Satan ruling the world.
‘After rejecting their Messiah and straying from the word of God, humanity falls under complete control of Satan and his minions – a race of artificially modified humans, who no longer call themselves Homo Sapiens, but rather, Homo Demonicus,’ the blurb reads.
Another appeared to preview his warped plan, entitled: ‘America’s Coming Bloody Revolution.’
Its blurb reads: ‘Similar to Thomas Paine’s ‘Common Sense’ published in 1776 which helped inspire the American Revolution, the short, easy to understand pamphlet explains why another revolution is likely in America… and how it could be successful.’
