Yarmouth Schizo Hippie Arrested For Killing Hiker On Appalachian Trail Announced He Was Going To Kill Someone In April Facebook Post And His Hippie Friends Did Nothing


ABCChilling new details have emerged detailing how a Massachusetts man allegedly attacked a pair of hikers with a machete on the Appalachian Trail in Virginia, killing one and severely injuring the other. James L. Jordan, 30, of West Yarmouth, Massachusetts, was arrested early Saturday following the deadly attack in Wythe County, Virginia, that a federal prosecutor described Sunday as “senseless and brutal.”

On Friday, Jordan allegedly approached four hikers near the George Washington and Jefferson National Forest, according to a criminal complaint filed Monday at the U.S. District Court in Abingdon, Virginia. Jordan was known to the hikers, who had previously seen on social media that he allegedly threatened hikers on the Appalachian Trail in Unicoi County, Tennessee in April, according to the probable cause statement. Jordan was acting “disturbed and unstable” and was playing his guitar and singing when he approached the group, the complaint states.

Later Friday evening, the group made camp near Wythe County, Virginia, within the George Washington and Jefferson National Forest, when Jordan allegedly began approaching the hikers’ tents, making noises and threatening to kill them, according to the probable cause statement. Through the tents, Jordan allegedly threatened to pour gasoline on them and “burn them to death,” prompting the hikers to pack up and leave.

Jordan then allegedly tried to approach the hikers with a knife as they tried to leave the campsite, the complaint states. Two of the hikers chased him away, but Jordan allegedly returned and began stabbing the male victim in the upper body after they began arguing, the complaint states. The female victim ran away after watching the first victim fall to the ground, but Jordan caught up to her as she began to tire, according to the court documents. She then turned to face Jordan, raising her hands “as if to surrender,” and Jordan allegedly stabbed her multiple times. She then fell to the ground and played dead, and Jordan “left to find his dog,” the complaint states.

Once Jordan was gone, the victim ran down the trail and ran into two hikers, who assisted her for the next six miles into Smyth County, Virginia, where they called 911, according to the court documents.

This is obviously tragic as hell. The worst kind of murders are the ones where the murderer is so bat shit insane that they don’t know what’s going on because you can’t hate them like you would a regular murderer. If you called this guy a piece of shit to his face he’d ask if you were the pizza delivery guy, and that hardly quenches our thirst for justice. He’s also a schizo who was voluntarily off his meds, and by the looks of his wide open Facebook page he has plenty of friends who are pretending to be surprised by this turn of events.

This was his last post:

This was around the time he was harassing other hikers with knives and getting arrested and released for it. And instead of telling him to cut the shit his fuck knuckle hippie friends fed into it by liking and commenting. This Jack Kerouac on smack was walking all over the the south looking to stab people for months now.

And on April 17 he told his friends and followers that he was looking for a “crew sovereign cartel” that would be “shutting down folks that deserve it.”

These “sovereign citizens” are a real danger to society. They think the law doesn’t apply to them, which makes them capable of pretty much anything, including murder. If you declare yourself a sovereign citizen we should treat you like an invading and hostile combatant and hang you on the spot. Either that or give you free healthcare and in-state tuition. Depends who’s running the country at the time.

Of course none of his friends thought to alert the authorities that a dangerous lunatic who clearly lacks the capacity to think rationally was trying to recruit people to hack up innocent people who he believes “deserved” it. This is why I will always hate hippies with a burning passion. They’re just lazy wastes of space who don’t wanna get jobs and think only of themselves.

    The man who was killed was my uncle. That evil man James Jordan should be held in prison forever! yet the Justice system has failed my family. Doesn’t matter if you knew the guy or not. Nobody should die because of this. Wether my uncle had a gun or not doesn’t matter. I hope James pays for what he has done in this life and the next. Rest In Peace Uncle Ronnie.

    J.j was a good kid. I’ve know him since I was in middle school. He had a good heart, and a really messed up life, with lots of mental issues. This in no way justifies his actions, or killing anyone. But I do believe I read, that the FBI and authorizes were tipped off about his threats and behavior many times, and failed to detain him and get him help, I believe he was released from jail or a mental institution prior to this. He definitely needs help. I can’t determine what the right justice is, what he was on, his mental state, or who he is as a person now and an adult. But he CLEARLY has some kind of mental issues, and has since childhood. So maybe we should be looking at the adults in this situation since he was a kid, the authorities then, and also the ones as he got older, who didn’t get him help. I stopped speaking to him years ago when I was a teenager, however that doesn’t mean the fact he did this, saddens me for the victims, and for a childhood friend. Advocate for mental illness patients and early intervention. And also, police should take warnings more seriously and act before someone loses their life.

    I’m guessing his friends and family have tried many, many times to get help and medical care for him. Many people with serious brain problems have anosognosia (like an Alzheimer’s patient who doesn’t know they are sick).

    Our mental health system is extemely inadequate & allows these cases to fall through the cracks over and over again.

    It also appears that the police did not have him evaluated when he was arrested on the weeks before this attack for making threats. He should have had inpatient stabilization followed by court ordered and evidence-based (AOT) Assisted Outpatient Treatment for ongoing care and maintenance of stabilization.

    Fuck the people who advocate for severely mentally ill patients to be allowed to choose whether they want treatment when they are too sick to make a safe decision for the safety of themselves and others.

    We shoudn’t waste energy hating hippies when we can channel that energy into starting conversations and action on our highly distressing and fixable mental health system.

    If you still don’t know what I mean, read a support forum for caregivers of those with serious mental illness. You will see how truly awful and deplorable the situation is for people who want nothing more in this world than to get proper help for their loved ones with SMI.

    Stop wasting time talking about hippies and throw this shame and shade at your legislators. At the end of the day they are the ones who are allowing this to happen.

    This chud stuffer looks like dog the bounty hunter. I bet u this guys FB account is still active and the original post is still online.

    No way would I go near that trail without being armed. Lot’s of shit goes on along that trail that no one hears about. It’s full of wackos, just look at the pics…everyone in them looks like they just busted out from the funny farm.

    Fortunately, Virginia is a death penalty state.

    When out in the woods, it is important to carry. Either a pistol or bear spray, or both. I always thought it was to defend yourself against a wild animal, but it is also to protect yourself against human trash. Bear spray will go 30 feet and I’m sure it would be very effective if used on someone who initiates an attack. It is also good to have on hand in your home if you don’t have a pistol.

      I used to day hike a lot, 10-12 miles max, so never more than 5-6 miles from something. Never worried about it because I always felt that it was easier pickings for a perp to be near civilization than walking a couple of miles into the woods to do whatever.

      I was probably wrong in not being worried. Carried a knife but a lot good that will do you if you are jumped.

    He obviously insane.
    But, if he’s declared that and found not accountable for his actions he gets put away somewhere with the possibility of being cured and then let go.

    If found criminally guilty, he gets the death penalty or most likely never walks. But, we shouldn’t be putting the insane in jail. Unfortunately, jail is a better choice.

    Should John Hinckley Jr. be running around even if the thumb of the government is still on him?

    Your reaching here… all those posts were the nonsensical rambling of a mentally ill person. Sad story but this man is delusional whacko who’ll spend rest of his life in a mental hospital. this could have been easily avoided if 1/4 of those hikers had a gun

    Ain’t no way I’m going on the “trail” unarmed! Too many two legged predators there. It’s hard to beleve there hasn’t been more heinous crimes committed out in the woods.
    I carry a 626 S&W 44 magnum and wouldn’t hesitate to use it to protect myself or any innocent person from these POS that hang out on the AT.
    Against the law, what BS! In the sticks you create the law. Deadly force gets met with deadly force. All you little tree hugging snowflakes are asking to be killed, raped and robbed by these TRAIL MONSTERS.

      Incorrect. If one of my friends started making totally incoherent, rambling, off-the-charts crazy posts, I’d find out what the fuck was going on.

      If you’re one of his acquaintances who ignored this insanity, so be it; but don’t act like there were no warning signals that this guy was going off the rails.

      If you’re one of the hippies in these pictures, take a shower, get a haircut, and GET A FUCKING JOB!

    I’ve seen enough Friday the 13th’s.
    Don’t hike, enjoy nature, or be alone in a nature type environment. Granola, lack of bathing, with a north face fleece, and a grandiose sense of self importance of hiking the “Appalachian Trail” will not deter deranged schizo’s desire to kill you. It’s science really.

    At least there is some good news. Virginia does lethal injections and the average time from conviction to death is the shortest in the nation at less than 8 years.

      The trail is federal land. Federal rap.
      From this blog post above
      ABC: Chilling new details have emerged detailing how a Massachusetts man allegedly attacked a pair of hikers with a machete on the Appalachian Trail in Virginia, killing one and severely injuring the other. James L. Jordan, 30, of West Yarmouth, Massachusetts, was arrested early Saturday following the deadly attack in Wythe County, Virginia, that a federal prosecutor described Sunday as “senseless and brutal.”

      Also Cape Code Today web site.

      “Jordan is charged with one count of murder within the special maritime territorial jurisdiction of the United States and one count of assault with the intent to murder within the special maritime territorial jurisdiction of the United States.”

      Looks like they are using a piracy on the high seas law. Maybe it’s because of the frilly collar on his shirt.
