- From psychotic anime critics to mass murdering racists we look at 7 murderers who were YouTubers.
7 – Alavaro Castillo,
- A guy obsessed with the columbine shooting won’t get up to no good, surely.
- Alavaro had a very tiny YouTube channel with around 60 subscribers and only a handful of vlog style videos uploaded. Alavaro turned deadly when he shot and killed his father before taking aim at his high school. Luckily no one was killed in the school attack which included the use of pipe bombs. Alavaro was sentenced to life in prison but thanks to his YouTube uploads we know that he really liked “Natural Born Killers” and “Predator”.
- Makes sense but would have been more interesting if he really liked “Babe pig in the city” or “The English Patient”, y’know movies that drive people to kill.
6 – Jared Lee Loughner,
- Sometimes you have to wonder what it would be like if someone like Mark David Chapman had access to YouTube, it would probably have been something like this.
- Jared Lee Loughner was an avid conspiracy nut and posted videos about mind control and other crazy ramblings including anti-Semitism. He had expressed particular dislike to Congresswoman Gabrielle Gifford’s, leading to an assassination attempt that would kill 6 people but not his target.
- Loughner’s channel Classitup10 is still up, leading to his videos getting millions of views from morbid curiosity. Ah hell if you’re watching this you’ve probably already been to his channel.
5 – Anthony Powell,
- It’s not surprising when people who spew hate online end up doing something terrible in real life.
- Anthony Powell posted videos calling out the terrible demon that is women and more specifically black women. For some reason a bunch of circle jerking viewers gave him support for this enlightened view. Powell ended up stalking and murdering fellow YouTuber and student Asia McGowan with a shotgun.
- Powell then turned the weapon on himself. Well the one positive out of it was that there was one less asshole on YouTube.
4 – Trey Eric Sesler,
- Well I can see how talking about anime all the time online could make you angry but not this angry.
- Trey Eric Sesler or Mr Anime started out making videos about your normal stuff, anime, video games and guns. But then things started taking a bad turn with Sesler doing more videos about serial killers, killing animals and using real guns. Eventually Sesler went full shining and killed his mother, father and brother. Sesler committed the murders because he planned a school shooting and didn’t want his family to suffer with what he was going to do.
- Not only did this YouTuber happen to just kill someone, his descent into madness was captured for the world to see as it happened.
