A self-described “incel” was busted by the feds on Wednesday for allegedly plotting a mass shooting of sorority girls at an Ohio university, prosecutors said.
Tres Genco, 21, allegedly wrote a manifesto stating he would “slaughter” women “out of hatred, jealousy and revenge,” according to charging documents.
On Jan. 15, 2020, the women-hating creep “conducted surveillance” at an unnamed university in Ohio, the indictment states.
That same day, he allegedly searched online for “how to plan a shooting crime” and “when does preparing for a crime become attempt?”
Federal prosecutors say Genco identified as an “involuntary celibate” and was part of the sick online community of men who “seek to commit violence in support of their belief that women unjustly deny them sexual or romantic attention to which they believe they are entitled.”
Genco allegedly had profiles and frequently posted on a popular incel website from at least July 2019 through mid-March 2020.
In one post, the alleged psycho described praying “some foids and couples” with orange juice in a water gun, the court doc states. “Foids” is an incel term short for “femoids,” referring to women, prosecutors said.
Genco allegedly described the “extremely empowering action” to that of fellow incel Elliot Rodger, who killed six people and injured 14 others in a 2014 mass shooting in California. Prior to the attack, Rodger shot a group of college students with orange juice from a water gun.
Investigators said they found a note of Genco’s that indicated he hoped to “aim big” and kill at least 3,000 people — and that he intended to attend military training, the complaint states.
He attended Army Basic Training at Fort Benning in Georgia, from August through December 2019, prosecutors said.
Also in 2019, Genco allegedly bought tactical gloves, a bulletproof vest, a bowie knife — and a hoodie bearing the word “revenge.”
Officials say also he purchased two Glock 17 magazines, a 9mm Glock 17 clip and a holster clip concealed carry for a Glock at the time.
In January 2020, Genco allegedly penned a document titled “Isolated,” which he described as “the writings of the deluded and homicidal.” He signed the missive, “Your hopeful friend and murderer,” according to prosecutors.
Local police officers raided Genco’s home in Highland County, Ohio, on March 12, 2020 and allegedly found a Glock-style 9mm semiautomatic pistol, with no manufacturer’s marks or serial number, hidden in a vent in his bedroom.
Inside the trunk of Genco’s car, cops discovered a gun with a bump stock attached, several loaded magazines, body armor and boxes of ammunition, prosecutors said.
Genco was indicted by a federal grand jury on one count of attempting to commit a hate crime and one count of illegally possessing a machine gun. He could face up to life in prison if convicted of the first charge.
