Murder suspect Samuel Woodward routinely referred to himself on social media and in chat logs as a 'National Socialist' and 'antisemitic.' The suspect charged with the murder of Jewish-American college student Blaze Bernstein, Samuel Woodward, has ties to the neo-Nazi group Atomwaffen Division according to sources. According to ProPublica, the Atomwaffen Division is an armed white supremacist organization that espouses a neo-Nazi ideology and aims to overthrow the US government via terrorism and guerilla warfare. Woodward routinely referred to himself on social media and in chat logs as a "National Socialist" and as "antisemitic." One source who named Woodward as a member of the group is a former member of the organization. Woodward reportedly joined the organization in 2016 and later attended a 3-day basic training course in firearms and hand-to-hand combat in Texas.

The organization idolizes Adolf Hitler and mass murderer Charles Manson and has been associated with four other murders, as well as a bomb plot, all of which took place over the last 8 months.

Atomwaffen, which means atomic weapon in German, routinely utilizes Nazi symbolism and uploads videos onto the internet showing members lighting on fire the US constitution and the American flag.

Woodward first met Bernstein in high school in Orange County, California. Bernstein, 19, was discovered in a shallow grave near Lake Forest Park with more than 20 stab wounds to his body last week, The Orange County Register reported.

Local authorities believe that Woodward murdered Bernstein after the latter attempted to kiss him before they arrived at the park. Woodward was found with "abrasions, scratches and dirt on his hands," when police apprehended him last week. Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas also said that Woodward cleaned the car that he used the night he picked up Bernstein and visited the crime scene "days after the murder."

"This is a senseless murder of a young man who possessed a combination of a high-caliber mind and the heart of a poet," Rackauckas said.

If you read the LA Times, the picture emerging of Woodward was that of a "angsty kid" but not a bully (their words, not mine) who knew Bernstein at Corona Del Mar High School and who allegedly beat Bernstein after Bernstein tried to kiss him in his car, which was parked at a make out spot at a park in the OC. Woodward made up a fake girlfriend as an alibi and they found DNA evidence in his car, which led to his arrest.

I think that the neo-nazi angle (although it certainly signifies internal conflict) is probably a small part of Woodward's turmoil, the facts are pointing more to a young man who was very confused about his sexuality and freaked out on Bernstein when he kissed him.

Really sad, I know people in CDM that know the Bernsteins and by all accounts he was a great kid with a bright future.

Bernstein's death is the third high-profile killing connected to Atomwaffen in the past year.
