WILTON MANORS—After a series of conflicting reports on the whereabouts and detention status of Craig Jungwirth, the unbalanced ex-event promoter who threatened to kill “fags faster than the cops kill n**gers,” is no longer in custody, but continues to be under surveillance by the FBI. According to Wilton Manors Police Chief Paul O’Connell, the suspect is no longer considered a threat to gays celebrating their Labor Day weekends in the local LGBT nightclub Mecca.
According to Chief O’Connell: “The Wilton Manors Police Department (WMPD) is actively working with national, state and local law enforcement agencies in an ongoing investigation regarding what we believe to be credible threats to do harm.
Investigative timelines are comprehensive and thorough. WMPD will have increased patrol and visibility throughout the holiday weekend, working with local bars and restaurants in an effort to beef up private security. In addition, we have reached out to our local law enforcement partners and asked that they consider providing additional assistance.
If you SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING. As always…….never hesitate to reach out to us!” he urged.
Jungwirth, who threatened last week via Facebook to massacre “faggots,” had written on Facebook: “None of you deserve to live. If you losers thought the Pulse nightclub shooting was bad, wait till you see what I’m planning for Labor Day.”
Jungwirth was referring to the June 12 massacre at Pulse nightclub in Orlando where 49 victims were murdered and another 53 injured.
Jungwirth is said to be staying with his mother in Orlando where he is being monitored while a case is being built against him for arrest by the authorities for making threats to murder civilians over the Internet.
After making the threats last Wednesday, police quickly located the man, labeled “unstable” by many who know him, and brought in for questioning by the Orlando police and the FBI.
