A QAnon-obsessed killer dad who used a spear gun to fatally shoot both his children, believed he was ‘saving the world’ because his children were ‘going to grow into monsters’, but admitted to the FBI he knew what he did was wrong.
Matthew Taylor Coleman, 40, told the FBI he ‘had to’ kill his two toddlers because he was ‘enlightened’ by ‘QAnon and Illuminata’ conspiracy theories which claim the world is run by a group of Satan-worshipping pedophiles.
The Santa Barbara surf instructor murdered his son Kaleo, two, and daughter Roxy, 10 months, on a Christian ranch in Rosarito, Mexico on Monday morning after leaving his California home on Saturday and crossing the border without his wife’s knowledge.
According to court documents filed in LA, Coleman admitted to the crime and said that he did it because he was ‘receiving visions and signs that his wife possessed serpent DNA and had passed it onto his children’.
If he didn’t kill them, he ‘believed his children were going to grow into monsters’.

Federal agents will most likely be looking into the surf instructor’s social media accounts, which grew increasingly devout since the pandemic. It is unknown how long Coleman was entrenched in QAnon
Investigators will no doubt note how he appears to use increasingly biblical and prophetic and revelatory language
Coleman was apprehended by authorities trying to reenter the USA at the Ysidro Point of Entry after his wife alerted authorities to his whereabouts using the Find My iPhone app.
The surf instructor told federal agents he used a spear fishing gun to shoot both his children to death on near Christian camp Rancho del Cielo around 5am Monday morning after traveling over two hundred miles.
The surf instructor was taken into custody and investigators have now begun the process of trying to work out how and why the otherwise seemingly happy family man could have become so twisted as to murder both his children he described as his ‘jewels’ on social media.
Indeed, his social media is filled with picture-perfect images of a beautiful family, but investigators will no doubt note how his language has become increasingly biblical, using prophetic and revelatory language.
An affidavit was filed in LA following Coleman’s arrest. In the court documents, Coleman told federal agents that he was ‘receiving visions and signs that his wife possessed serpent DNA and had passed it onto his children’
It is unknown how long Coleman was entrenched in QAnon.
The Mexican Christian ranch on which the bodies of the two children were found uses its social media to promote the group as a ‘religious organization’ seeking ‘to provide the Church of Christ with a safe, secluded and high-quality space for the growth of the Body of Christ’.
It is a place where ‘missionaries from around the world who come to our state with the intention of establishing the kingdom of heavens of Jesus Christ on earth’.
The murders are all the more baffling considering Coleman’s very public love for Abby, Kaleo and Roxy.

He often fawned over his wife on birthdays, anniversaries or just because and the two appeared very happily married for the past four years.
Coleman captioned Instagram photos of her saying he’s ‘deeply in love’ and shared photos of father-son days spent with Kaleo, to which he said: ‘When I’m with him, things that I’ve experienced a thousand times start to feel new and awe-inspiring.
‘He has this special gift in being able to recognize the glory all around him, and then bringing other people into it.’
‘You could say I enjoy being a dad,’ he wrote in an earlier post with his only son.

Back in October 2020 Coleman made an Instagram post gushing over his newborn daughter and his ‘fearless wife for bringing us baby Roxy’.
The caption read: ‘Another picture that came to me was of God reaching down into a river bed and picking up a small stone (rock), examining it intently. Just as David had done before slaying Goliath, God examined the stone and was confident that it was just the perfect one for the battle.
‘Although it was small, smooth and somewhat harmless looking, he knew that it would become great when placed into the palm of a skilled hand. My declaration over Roxy Rain is that she has been hand picked by God to slay the giants in the land.’
Prior to the deaths Coleman posted frequently about his Christian faith online but his posts became increasingly devout since the beginning of the pandemic
Coleman admitted to murdering his son Kaleo (left), two, and daughter Roxy (right), 10 months. The court documents also noted that Coleman thought he ‘was saving the world from monsters’
The investigation started after the children’s mother Abby Coleman (pictured) reported her husband, son and daughter missing when Coleman didn’t answer any of her phone calls or texts
Ten months after the post he murdered Roxy and her brother in efforts to ‘save the world’ because of his beliefs.
The investigation started on Saturday when Coleman’s wife Abby, 35, called police to report her husband and children missing after Coleman left their home in Santa Barbara with the two children and did not answer phone calls or texts from Abby or other family members.
According to the court documents Abby was ‘concerned because Coleman did not have a car seat’.
Video footage showed Coleman (left), Kaleo (right) and Roxy (not seen in the picture) checking into the City Express Hotel in Rosarito on Saturday

Coleman returned alone later Monday morning and then left the hotel for good in a Mercedes-Benz vehicle, authorities said. Investigators in Mexico believe that Coleman took his children to a ranch near to his hotel. It is not known why the surf instructor could have murdered his children
Although she knew Coleman put 10-month-old Roxy in a box instead of a car seat she told authorities that she did not believe her children were in any danger.
She told police she believed Coleman ‘would eventually return to their residence’ and that ‘she did not have any problems with Colemen’.
‘They did not have any sort of argument prior to him leaving,’ the affidavit said.
The next day Santa Barbara police used the Find My iPhone map to locate Coleman, who was at the open-air mall Pabellon Rosatiro in Baja California, Mexico.
A farmhand found the bodies when he saw splattered blood on the ground while walking the property near El Descanso ranch. ‘I immediately notified my manager to call the police to come investigate,’ he said. The Baja California police received a 911 call about the discovery at 7.27am
The worker, who wished to remain anonymous, told Border Report that he ‘teared up’ when he saw the bodies. ‘I was scared and sad because these are tiny children who don’t know any better’ he said
During the investigation police found that on Saturday, Coleman checked into the City Express Hotel on the Tijuana-Ensenada Freeway with his two children – 266 miles away from his home in Santa Barbara.
CCTV footage shows Coleman leaving the hotel with Kaleo and Roxy early Monday morning at 2.54am.
He returned to the hotel alone about three hours later and left the hotel for good just after 9.30am, as stated in the court documents.
Baja California Attorney General Hiram Sanchez Zamora said that a farmworker discovered the dead children’s bodies while walking the property near El Descanso ranch.
Coleman lives in Santa Barbara, California with his wife and two kids. He left on Saturday and checked into the City Express Hotel in Rosarito, Mexico. Two days later he was arrested after trying to get back in the US at the San Ysidro Point of Entry for the murder of his two children
Coleman’s last-recorded location on ‘Find My iPhone’ was at the open-air mall Pabellon Rosarito in Rosarito, Baja California, Mexico, according to court documents

SOME OF QANON’S THEORIES
THE UNDERPINNING PEDOPHILE THEORY
QAnon is founded on and operates under the belief that there is a deep-state organization of powerful, Democratic politicians who are pedophiles.
Supporters of the theory think that for years, these pedophiles have been able to operate free from criticism by protecting each other.
It also teaches that they are Satan worshipers who, after abusing children, drink their blood.
None of it is true.
One theory that has been tied to QAnon but was not necessarily borne out of it is the idea that there is a video, found on the laptop of disgraced congressman Anthony Weiner, which shows his wife Huma Abedin and Hillary Clinton abusing a child and then drinking the child’s blood.
Pizzagate erupted as a theory during the first Trump election in 2016.
It is the theory that the Comet pizza shop in Washington DC has been used for years as a base for the pedophile and child sex trafficking ring.
Again, there is no evidence of it.
He saw splattered blood on the ground and followed his dog to the scene. The worker, who wished to remain anonymous, told Border Report: ‘To be honest I teared up. And I immediately notified my manager to call the police to come investigate.
‘I was scared and sad because these are tiny children who don’t know any better. Hopefully they find whoever is responsible because this is a terrible thing.’
Coleman was arrested at the San Ysidro Point of Entry at the US-Mexico border on Monday.
During an investigation of the Mercedes Sprinter van officers found blood on the registration paperwork including Coleman’s passport, his wife’s old passport that stated her maiden name, Kaleo’s birth certificate and a ‘Verification of Pregnancy and Live Birth’ for Roxy.
Coleman made his initial court appearance Wednesday afternoon in the US District Court of California in downtown Los Angeles.
US Magistrate Judge Jacqueline Chooljian ordered Coleman to be detained without bond, as reported by CBS 8.
His first hearing was scheduled to take place August 31 in Los Angeles.
Coleman is facing two counts of foreign murder of United States nationals and could spend up to 120 years in prison.
He first killed his son ‘using a spearfishing gun to pierce Kaleo in the heart,’ court documents said. Coleman told federal agents that he did not die right away.
He then ‘described that he had to move the spear around, thereby cutting his hand in the process,’ the affidavit said.
He told federal agents he discarded his children’s slain bodies in some brush about 30 yards from where he killed them.
Coleman was taken to Santa Ana jail on Tuesday and the Mexican authorities found the murder weapon, bloody clothes and a baby’s blanket.
The FBI, US Customs and Border Protection, the Santa Barbara Police Department and the Mexican authorities are working to return the children’s bodies to California.
Back home Coleman co-founded the surfing school Lovewater Surf Co in Santa Barbara, California – where he was born – with his wife.
According to the surf school’s website, ‘Matt and Abby enjoy finding ways to better lives through surfing, experiential education and community-based projects’.
The site is still live with pictures of Coleman and his smiling family.

HOW QANON STARTED IN THE CORNERS OF THE DARK WEB AND EXPLODED UNDER TRUMP
QAnon exploded in the final months of Donald Trump’s presidency, bolstered by the unproven theory that widespread voter fraud won the election for Biden amid widespread conspiracy theories about the COVID-19 pandemic.
It had been gradually gathering steam throughout Trump’s presidency after being founded in 2017 or thereabouts.
It started with a few posts that had been put on 4Chan, by Q, that were picked up on and promoted.
Q claimed to be a high ranking military official with knowledge of what Trump was up against – a secret ring of pedophiles and child sex traffickers.
Trump never endorsed the movement, although he is its hero.
He has, in the past, described some of its followers as ‘people who love our country.’
Facebook and Twitter have taken down or restricted countless QAnon posts which only feeds supporters’ believes that big tech is also in bed with the pedophile ring.
At one time, the conspiracy theorist set their sights on the Robert Mueller Russia probe.
They believe that it was a cover for a bigger investigation into the pedophile ring.
When Mueller’s investigation concluded to no avail other than clearing Trump of wrongdoing, QAnon’s focus shifted.
Jim Watkins attended the January 6 riot and took the filmmaker with him. It’s unclear whether or not Ron was there.
