WILTON MANORS (CBSMiami) – Social media is exploding, sharing a threatening Facebook message posted under the name Craig Jungwirth.
“None of you deserve to live,” it says. “If you losers thought the Pulse nightclub shooting was bad, wait till you see what I’m planning for Labor Day.”
“I didn’t sleep all night,” said Bob, a Wilton Manors resident.
Bob came to the Wilton Manors police department to report the post. And he’s not alone – police have been flooded with calls.
“They said they knew his name as soon as I mentioned Facebook and the threat,” he added. “They knew his name and they were working on it.”
Wilton Manors Police Chief Paul O’Connell understands why Bob and so many others are on high alert.
“Everyone knows Wilton Manors is predominately gay and lesbian. When he pushed the button called ‘Pulse,’ that takes the emotions run through the roof, and he has done that.”
The post goes on to say, “You can never catch a genius from MIT and since you fa****s aren’t dying from AIDS anymore, I have a better solution to exterminate you losers.”
It continues, “I’m going to be killing you fa** faster than cops kill nig****. It’s time to clean up Wilton Manors from all you AIDS-infested losers.”
Authorities spent the day searching for Jungwirth, finally pinning down a location.
“We know where he is. I can’t comment where he is, but I can tell you he is not in the tri-county area,” O’Connell said.
Sources say Jungwirth – who reportedly is gay – is in the Orlando area.
Nick Berry, who owns Rumors nightclub in Wilton Manors, knows Jungwirth well.
“He’s a big guy and he’s got a screw lose, I’d be worried about him,” said Nick Berry, who owns Rumors nightclub in Wilton Manors.
The two are locked in a court battle. Berry said Jungwirth skipped out on a bill and the case is going to trial. He said a couple of months ago, surveillance video caught Jungwirth spraying graffiti on the bar. Berry said because of the Orlando Massacre, it was chilling reading the Facebook posts.
“When you bring up it’s going to be bigger than Pulse and the language that he used in that, I believe his screws have finally come loose and he’s, I don’t think he has anything to lose,” said Berry.
He said what ultimately set off Jungwirth is that local businesses did not support him when he bought the rights to a weekend theme party. Berry said he and other bars will have extra security this weekend.
“I think this incident is domestic terrorism,” Berry added. “I absolutely do. He mentioned Pulse, that was domestic terrorism. And I believe he’s a step above that.”
The FBI is now involved.
The potential charges he faces: threatening harm over the internet.
