Our hearts go out to the family, friends, and victims of Craig Jungworth, in a bizarre Florida story that’s just sad any way you look at it.
For some time, Craig (who has been identified by community members as gay) has been exhibiting troubling, inexplicably hostile behavior, but now it’s crossed a line and he’s finally in custody where he can hopefully get help — and won’t be a danger to others.
“None of you deserve to live,” he wrote recently on Facebook. “If you losers thought the Pulse nightclub shooting was bad, wait till you see what I’m planning for Labor day.”
He also wrote “you can never catch a genius from MIT” and “I have a better solution to exterminate you losers.”
One local bar owner said that Jungworth was captured on video vandalizing his property. According to police, he has a history of stalking, harassment, trespassing — nothing too surprisingly, given his pattern of behavior. You will probably not be surprised to hear that there is at least one restraining order against him.
Previously, Craig took command of Beach Bear Weekend, but local news reported that he pocketed a bunch of money and harassed the Sisters.
If convicted, Jungworth could go to prison for five years, plus a quarter million dollar fine. It’s unclear how a mental health plea would affect his case. But with this indictment, hopefully Florida — and Craig — are a little safer now.
