According to the Thurgau canton of police, an initially unknown man threatened a mass murder on a video stream Monday night. The investigation led to the arrest of 21-year-old Thurgau, who was arrested by the cantonal police on Tuesday. The man is still in custody and an investigation is ongoing. For these reasons, the Cantonal Police is reluctant to provide information.
I don’t know how many people have seen the video
It is known that the video was uploaded to the Tiktok platform. “We take any threat seriously. But the threat of mass murder is obviously mass murder, says Matthias Graf, a media spokesman for the Canton of Thurgau. In addition, the man threatened not only to plan a mass murder, but “to implement it as well.” Then he shared the video on Tiktok. According to Graf, a social media user came across the video and alerted the police. It is unclear how many people were able to see the video. “We can’t estimate it.”
a criminal investigation was initiated
As the investigation has not yet been completed, the police cannot provide further information on the suspect. Whether the threat was targeted at specific individuals or groups is also a mystery. It is not yet known whether Turgowia has accomplices and is under investigation. “Investigations are in full swing,” says media spokesman Matthias Graf. The prosecutor’s office initiated criminal proceedings.
