Connecticut man charged with threatening to “slaughter Jews” and “burn their synagogues”


Over a three month period from May to July, Kendall Sullivan, a 50 year-old Connecticut man has been accused of having posted messages on an internet forum for heavy metal fans, in which he threatened to “slaughter Jews” and “burn their synagogues.”  A federal grand jury has indicted him in response to charges brought against him by the FBI.

FBI investigators obtained a warrant to search Sullivan’s home in Stamford, during which they found more than two dozen firearms, gun parts, high-capacity magazines and hundreds of rounds of ammunition.

A spokesperson for the FBI’s New Haven division, said that the authorities may have thwarted “a horrific hate crime.”
Sullivan is now in custody. Although comment has been sought from sources close to Sullivan, no responses have been received.
