Michigan man charged with threatening murder of FBI Director, California Deputy John Garamendi

A Michigan man was arrested this weekend for allegedly threatening to kill FBI Director Christopher Wray and U.S. Representative John Garamendi, D-Calif.

Neil Matthew Walter, 32, of Grand Blanc, Michigan, has been charged with the federal government broadcasting interstate communications containing a threat to harm another person, according to a federal complaint released Tuesday.

Authorities say Neil Walter made threats against the FBI director on Facebook.

According to the complaint, Walter Garamendi left a voicemail earlier this month saying, “Hey John. You’re going to die John. You’re going to die.”

The phone had a Florida area code, which investigators linked to a traffic accident report in Mundy Township, Michigan, and traced the phone to Walter.

Investigators linked his driver’s license to a Facebook profile that contained numerous tirades about politicians, intelligence officers and celebrities supposedly entangled in a ring of child slaves in the US Capitol Building.

Federal investigators were drawn to another Facebook account post that Rep. Garamendi tagged and read, “Have a nice life John, you will be put down for life.”

The U.S. Capitol Police detective alerted Genesee County detectives, who visited Walter’s residence. Walter answered the door with a firearm in hand and initially refused to drop the gun or leave the residence, the FBI said.

Walter made no threats to law enforcement, but said he would defend himself against the U.S. government under the indictment.

While being interviewed by police, Walter ranted about child rape, a lawsuit with Putin and how “no one is doing anything to the kids”.

Walter’s father told investigators at the home that his son has a history of mental health problems and was previously admitted to a Florida hospital. His mother told investigators she had been concerned about her son’s mental health for nearly a year, saying he once jumped through a window and sustained multiple injuries.

On Saturday, Walter used his Facebook account to comment on a livestream video of FBI Director Wray, according to the indictment.

“Director Wray will die several times a day every day because he raped my family over and over and lied to them and myself about it,” the reports read. “I will kill you, Director Wray…you will die…I will kill in self-defense.”
