An Alleged Extremist Supporter of Adolf Hitler Arrested on Charges of Threatening to Kill All Hispanics

Eric Lin, 35, of Clarksburg, Maryland, was arrested in Seattle, Washington, after being charged with Making Threatening Communications, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 875(c) via a criminal complaint filed in Miami. Lin made his initial appearance before a United States Magistrate Judge in Seattle.

Ariana Fajardo Orshan, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Florida and George L. Piro, Special Agent in Charge, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Miami Field Office, made the announcement. 

According to allegations in the complaint, between May 30, 2019, and August 13, 2019, Eric Lin made multiple threatening communications via Facebook to injure and kill a South Florida resident, to kill all Hispanics and Spanish-speaking people in Miami and other places, while expressing support for Adolf Hitler.

U.S. Attorney Fajardo Orshan commended the investigative efforts of the FBI and the City of Miami Police Department. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Maria K. Medetis.

A complaint is merely an accusation and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
