Cole Carini, a 23-year-old Virginia man who turned up at hospital missing his hands and peppered with shrapnel, claims he was hurt in a lawnmower accident. the FBI, however, says he's a misogynist who fantasized about blowing up hot cheerleaders and was trying to assemble a bomb.
On June 2, Cole Carini of Richlands, Virginia, showed up at the Clinch Valley Medical Center with a missing hand. Several fingers on Carini's other hand were also gone, and he had shrapnel wounds to the neck and throat. … When investigators got to the residence, they found a trail of blood leading from a red minivan parked in the driveway to the front door of the house, and up the stairs to a second-floor bedroom, according to the affidavit. After stepping over a "flesh colored substance that…looked like a piece of human skin," cops found a plastic bottle filled with triacetone triperoxide, or TATP, a "substance used in the creation of improvised explosive devices," inside a footlocker. Beside the footlocker was a box filled with rusty nails, and a plastic container, the top of which had been "peeled back in a manner consistent with an explosion," the affidavit says. The blinds in the room were damaged, and a chunk of flesh was stuck to the ceiling.
And here's the penned fantasy they claim is relevant:
"He casually walked through the shopping mall, his jacket concealed deadly objects," the letter read, parts of which were illegible. "He was doing it and was assured it must be done. Even if he died this statement was worth it! He had… of tension that would come and go as he approached the stage of hot cheerleaders… A dead seriousness sank in as he realized he was truly passing the point of no return! He decided I will not back down I will not be afraid of the consequences no matter what I will be heroic I will make a statement like Elliott Rodgers [sic] did he thought to himself."
He couldn't even spell the name of the Supreme Gentleman.
