Arcan Cetin (20), mannen som skjøt ihjel fem mennesker i et kjøpesenter i Burlington fredag, linket til nettsider med bilder av IS-lederen, al-Baghdadi.
Cetin, som er av tyrkisk ætt, beskrives som sosialt handikappet. I tillegg hadde han dragning mot jihad-sider.
Arcan Cetin’s already high creep level jumped by a factor of ten when it was discovered that he had a blog with links to photo posts of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei.
A Tumblr page in his name contains references to the phrase “Subhan Allah,” which means Glory be to God, as well as comments about serial killers. It links to a page that praises the ISIS leader. Police have not yet determined the shooter’s motive in the mall attack, according to The Seattle Times, and Cetin has a troubled past that includes domestic violence allegations. By one account, he called out a woman’s name while allegedly firing.
Under the photo referencing Allah there is the comment, “meowfraulein I’m cute plez say yez jk.”
Meowfraulein is another Tumblr page. It bears this photo, as well as one of a Supreme Leader of Iran and a Julian Assange book cover with the words “Mein Kampf” added:
Man kan ikke kategorisk si at Cetin var jihadist. Langt mindre at han handlet på ordre. Men at han var influert av og hadde dragning til ekstrem islam, synes å ha vært en faktor.
