MISSOURI: FBI Arrests Man For Emailed Threat To “Kill Every Gay Person I Can” At St. Louis Pride Fest
USA Today reports:
A suburban St. Louis man accused of telling organizers of the city’s Pride parade that he would shoot and kill as many gays as possible at the LGBTQ celebration before turning the gun on himself has been charged with making a terrorist threat, according to court documents. Edward Terry, 49, of Overland, was charged Tuesday.
Court documents say Terry created a fake email account and sent a message to one of PrideSTL’s parade planners saying he would take his guns to PrideFest and “kill every gay person I can before I kill myself.”
The recipient notified the FBI, and police tracked the account to Terry’s cellphone, according to the court documents. Bail for Terry, who also has a theft case pending in another St. Louis suburb, is set at $20,000, cash only. No attorney who can comment on his behalf is listed in online court records.
