Elizabeth Lecron was arrested for plotting an "upscale mass murder" at a Toledo bar,[1] days after Damon Joseph; another Ohioan was arrested for plotting to target a Synagogue.[2] Lecron had multiple screws and gun powder that could be used to make bombs.[3]

Background[edit]

She has been described by investigators to have "a fascination with mass casualty events” and was “committed to seeing death and destruction in order to advance hate,”[4] Lecron had disturbing social media pages which included idolizing mass murderers and Serial killers including Dylann Roof and the Columbine shooters. She also wrote letters to the mass murderer, Dylann Roof and he responded, he would ask for Nazi books and she'd send them followed by words of encouragement and stating ''people care for him.''[5]

Criminal history[edit]

Lecron first attracted the attention of authorities in June 2018, when a member of the public called in to Toledo Police, to report that she was interested in carrying out a violent attack and had several weapons, including the means to create a pipe bomb.[6] The caller also identified that Lecron utilized the site Tumblr to post about her adulation for Dylann Roof, the Columbine shooters, and other mass shootings along with her visits to some of the locations.[6]

She was arrested on December 10, 2018 after she purchased black powder and screws for making a bomb. Lecron was also documented as telling an undercover agent she wanted to target a Toledo bar and discussed bombing a pipeline or attacking a farm.[7] She was charged with one count of transportation of explosives and explosive material for the purposes of harming others and property.[8]
