Heee’s Back: Jungwirth Returns to Broward Jail

Written by Richard Hack

ORLANDO–U.S. Magistrate Judge Gregory J. Kelly in Orlando ordered Craig Allen Jungwirth, 50, to be formally transferred back to Broward County to face Federal charges that Jungwirth illegally threatened to injure others via interstate commerce communication.

In court documents, the FBI accuses Jungwirth of using Facebook to post a series of slurs against the gay community in Wilton Manors, threatening a massacre of LGBTs over the Labor Day weekend.

“None of you deserve to live” and, “If you losers thought the Pulse nightclub shooting was bad, wait till you see what I’m planning for Labor Day,” he allegedly posted.

The Florida Highway Patrol arrested Jungwirth two days before the holiday in Osceola County on a charge of driving on a suspended license. He was jailed in Seminole County and turned over to federal custody Thursday, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Jungwirth had been living with his mother outside of Orlando. According to the Sun-Sentinel newspaper, on Sept. 2, the FBI subpoenaed records that indicated that the threatening posts were made from an Internet account registered to an address owned by Jungwirth’s mother.
