A QAnon conspiracy theorist from California has reportedly sent a letter begging for forgiveness after confessing to killing his two young children in Mexico with a spearfishing pistol because they acquired “serpent DNA” from his wife.
Mathew Taylor Coleman told federal investigators after being arrested at the border that he had killed his 10-month-old daughter and 2-year-old son because they “were going to grow into monsters.”
I’m concerned there are at least two cases of QAnon parents killing their own children. Mathew Taylor Coleman’s wife was an anti-vaxxer and then dad decided to stab his children, another mom drowned her 3 kids. https://t.co/5GzBOIuz6A

According to an FBI document, the surf school owner left his home without a car seat for the infant and drove them to Rosarito.
He allegedly shot them in the chests with the spear gun and was apprehended by Customs and Border Protection two days later when he attempted to re-enter the US on his own, according to the feds.
Coleman has pleaded not guilty to the murder of US citizens in foreign countries.
But for those who know Mathew Taylor Coleman, the story is even more shocking. Coleman, 40, was known around Santa Barbara, Calif., as an affable instructor & churchgoer who was focused on helping kids.🤦🏽♀️🤬💔 https://t.co/BgNKdzF3XC

Coleman wrote a letter to the subject, who agreed to be identified only as a “longtime family friend.”
“He’s alone with his thoughts 24/7,” the longtime family friend said. “He’s reflecting on the mistakes he made in life and wondering if there’s any chance for redemption. He poured out his heart. He begged for forgiveness, but says that he’s now where he deserves to be.”
“He said he’s sorry, that he never wanted to cause pain, and that he’s working through why he made the choices he made.”
I don't think QAnon was as big as a factor that drove Mathew Taylor Coleman to kill his children he had strong ties with Bethel Church I think the police investigators didn't know with what they were dealing with a crazy cult theology #Bethelcult #cult

Coleman’s friend then added: “It was a very sad note.”
Coleman claimed to be “enlightened by QAnon and Illuminati conspiracy beliefs and was experiencing visions and signs confirming that his wife, A.C., contained snake DNA and had passed it on to his children,” according to the criminal complaint.
“M. Coleman stated that he believed his children were going to grow into monsters so he had to kill them,” Bannon wrote.

His two children, a two-year-old boy, and a nine-month-old girl were discovered dead at a property in Rosarito, Baja California, where he had allegedly taken them without informing his wife.
Coleman’s longtime family friend told People that he wasn’t sure if he sent similar letters to anybody else, but that he was looking forward to spending Christmas inside bars.

“He said he’s sorry, that he never wanted to cause pain, and that he’s working through why he made the choices he made,” the friend says. “It was a very sad note.”
Coleman waived his Miranda rights and told authorities that “he believed his children were going to grow into monsters so he had to kill them,” according to the affidavit.
