Santa Barbara surf instructor Matthew Coleman confessed to killing his children last year, telling the FBI he thought they would “grow into monsters.”
Matthew Coleman told an FBI agent he first learned about “lizard people” from the Twitter account of British conspiracy theorist David Icke.
“So many crazy thoughts going through my head right now, hard to explain,” Matthew Coleman told his wife, hours before killing their two children.
The Michigan man entered a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity, after psychiatric evaluations concluded he wasn't fit to stand trial.
The man’s lawyers say they need months to trawl through his digital life and determine how he was radicalized.
Matthew Coleman, a devout Christian who taught kids to surf, said he carried out the heinous crimes because he was “enlightened” by QAnon.
Matthew Coleman told the FBI he “believed his children were going to grow into monsters so he had to kill them.”
