(Ken Silva, Headline USA) Unsealed FBI search warrants in a bizarre case of an apparent Satanic pedophile cult were released Monday, revealing new details about how the feds found a pedophilic, Satanist extortion cult that’s linked to multiple terrorist attacks.
The newly released search warrants were issued against New York man Angel Almeida, who was arrested in November 2021 for being a felon in possession of a firearm. The FBI purportedly found child pornography on Almeida’s electronic devices while searching his home, leading investigators to an apparent Satanic pedophile cult connected to the terrorist group, the Order of the Nine Angels, or O9A.
Reporter Ali Winston, who initially broke the story about Almeida last week, also said that the FBI’s investigation found an offshoot of O9A known as 764. The FBI issued a bulletin about 764 last, month, warning parents that 764 is “deliberately targeting minor victims on publicly available messaging platforms to extort them into recording or livestreaming acts of self-harm and producing child sexual abuse material.”
The search warrants in this case were initially sealed, but Almeida filed copies of the warrants along with a motion to suppress evidence against him that he argued was gathered illegally.
According to the search warrant applications, an anonymous tip led the FBI to the Satanic cult.
The tipster allegedly wrote to the FBI in October 2021 that Almeida sent child pornography to a minor.
“He is in possession of drugs and illegal guns (illegal due to his criminal record). He’s incredibly dangerous and has stated he will ‘commit a kamikaze’ if he doesn’t hit his goal around age 25,” the tipster told the FBI.
“He consistently posts animal abuse material and has even posted images of himself having abused an animal by chopping it in half. He is extremely dangerous. He openly admits what he wants to do to children, posts his drug use online, and even posts child abuse material.”
The FBI’s search warrant applications claim that the bureau couldn’t find the anonymous tipster.
After receiving the tip, the FBI began looking at Almeida’s publicly available social media, according to the search warrants. Agents found photos of him posing with a black O9A flag in the background.
“Members and associates of O9A have espoused violent, neo-Nazi, anti-Semitic, and Satanic beliefs, and have expressed admiration for figures such as Adolf Hitler and Usama Bin Laden,” FBI agent Sean Johnson said in his search warrant application. “Members and associates of O9A have also participated in acts of violence, including murders.”
Other pictures on Almeida’s social media accounts included one of a bloody cat that had apparently been stabbed with a knife, as well as one of an individual standing in front of a Nazi flag with a shirt reading “Kiddie Fiddler” in front of a sign that reads, “I’M ADDICTED TO HARDCORE CHILD PORNOGRAPHY.”
Additionally, the search warrant applications disclosed that an undercover FBI employee gathered evidence on Almeida.
But on Monday, Almeida filed a motion to suppress the abovementioned evidence on the grounds that it was illegally gathered.
“[The FBI’s search warrant applications rely] on Almeida’s purported social media posts from months prior to the warrant application, in addition to a mere two photographs allegedly posted by Almeida in the weeks before the affidavit was submitted, the latest being 10 days before the agent applied for a warrant,” Almeida’s motion argued.
“The affidavit does not state the time at which the photographs were taken.”
The Justice Department has yet to respond to his motion. Almeida’s trial is set to begin in December.
