Two Conspiracy Theorists Arrested for Berating Victims of Texas Church Massacre

News & Politics

Two conspiracy theorists were charged on Monday after being accused of harassing victims of a church massacre in Texas.


The San Antonio Express first reported that the Wilson County sheriff’s deputies took 54-year-old Robert Ussery and 56-year-old Jodi Mann into custody after they showed up at the scene of the First Baptist Church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

Pastor Frank Pomero, whose 14-year-old daughter was killed in the shooting, said that the pair yelled at him as he drove up to the church.

The two conspiracy theorists believe that the government conspired with members of the church to fake the Nov. 5 shooting that killed 26 people.

Ussery “continually yelled and screamed and hollered and told me he was gonna hang me from a tree, and pee on me while I’m hanging,” Pomero recalled.

“He said, ‘Your daughter never even existed. Show me her birth certificate. Show me anything to say she was here,’” the pastor explained. “I just told him there was enough evidence already visible, so if he chooses not to see that, how would I know he would believe anything else?”
