(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – A man suspected of firebombing a pro-life organization’s office in Wisconsin last year has been identified and arrested at an airport in Boston, Massachusetts.
The firebomber is suspected of attacking the Wisconsin Family Action office, a conservative, anti-abortionist group, on May 8, 2022.
That was several days after a still unsolved leak from the US Supreme Court exposed an opinion in favor of overturning the pro-abortion 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling. The court codified the decision in June 2022, with the ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which allowed states to ban abortion.
The man responsible for the attack on the Wisconsin Family Action office has been identified as 29-year-old Hridindu Sankar Roychowdhury, the US Justice Department announced, as cited by The Daily Caller.
The DOJ disclosed that Roychowdhury was identified after his DNA samples, extracted from an unfinished burrito, matched the DNA found at the crime scene.
As a result, Roychowdhury was arrested on Tuesday as he was preparing to fly from Boston to the Central American nation of Guatemala. He was scheduled to appear before the US District Court in Boston later that day.
“If abortions aren’t safe, then you aren’t either,” read a graffiti inscription on the firebombed and vandalized office of Wisconsin Family Action last spring.
Besides allegedly leaving that message, Roychowdhury is suspected of throwing Molotov cocktails at the WFA building and starting a fire.
“According to the complaint, Mr. Roychowdhury used an incendiary device in violation of federal law in connection with his efforts to terrorize and intimidate a private organization,” Assistant Attorney General Matthew Olsen announced in a press release.
“I commend the commitment and professionalism of law enforcement personnel who worked exhaustively to ensure that justice is served,” said Olsen, the assistant US attorney general for national security.
The leaked US Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which established “no constitutional right to abortion,” was published by Politico on May 2, six days before the Wisconsin attack.
Roychowdhury was also previously identified as the person behind graffiti painted on Wisconsin State Capitol grounds during a January 21 protest.
“We will get revenge,” the graffiti said, according to court documents.
Roychowdhury faces a minimum of five years and a maximum of 20 years in prison if convicted.
“This group of local and federal law enforcement officers has worked, with the federal prosecutors, diligently and creatively to move the investigation forward,” announced US Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, Timothy O’Shea.
“This case is an example of the results law enforcement can achieve when local and federal law investigators work as a team,” he added.
In January, the DOJ indicted two people suspected of vandalizing three pro-life pregnancy centers in Florida. Those were the first indictments of attacks on pro-life clinics and groups.
According to data from the Family Research Council, there have been more than 100 such attacks nationwide since last summer.
