Timothy Wilson Biography, Timothy Wilson Wiki
Timothy Wilson, a man who died in an FBI shootout in Belton, Missouri, was planning to bomb a hospital providing “critical medical care” during the current coronavirus health care crisis, according to a statement from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Wilson felt compelled to act when the Belton mayor issued a stay-at-home order to deal with the COVID-19 outbreak, The New York Times reported.
The Informant’s Nick R. Martin has unearthed social media posts he says were made by Wilson on Telegram channels using the handle Werwolfe 84; according to Martin’s research, Wilson was “an admirer of the 1980s terrorist group The Order” and was linked to “two active neo-Nazi organizations,” the National Socialist Movement (NSM) and Vorherrschaft Division (VSD). Elon University computer science professor Megan Squire helped Martin with the research.

Jews have been playing the long game we are the only ones standing in their way.”

Timothy Wilson Investigations
According to a statement issued Wednesday, Wilson “was the subject of a months-long domestic terrorism investigation” and was believed to be motivated by “by racial, religious and anti-government animus.”
He was planning a bombing and “had considered several targets” over the course of several months, according to the FBI.
Fuhr said that Wilson “just hung out with his grandmother.”
“[He] never did say anything that would indicate that he was some type of domestic terrorist or anything like that,” Fuhr said.
According to the FBI, Wilson had “taken the necessary steps” to acquire materials needed to build the bomb. He was being monitored at all times by the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force “in order to protect public safety.”
“With the current health crisis, Wilson decided to accelerate his plan to use a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (VBIED) in an attempt to cause severe harm and mass casualties,” the FBI in a statement about the incident. “Wilson considered various targets and ultimately settled on an area hospital in an attempt to harm many people, targeting a facility that is providing critical medical care in today’s environment.”
