John Alien Muham-
mad and John Lee
Malvo were lovers —
and their gay secret fueled the
terrifying rage that left 10 vic-
tims dead, The ENQUIRER
has learned exclusively.
What's more, we've uncov-
ered shocking links between
the gunmen and Al Qaeda —
and discovered the secret
money pipeline that allowed
Muhammad to fly to Canada,
the Caribbean and around
the country meeting with
fellow Islamic fanatics.
Shockingly, 17-year-oldMalvo
himself nearly became a vic-
tim of Muhammad as their
bizarre relationship turned
abusive and the frightened
teenager wrote to a young ac-
quaintance, "I'm afraid that
John is going to kill me."
learned the two bloodthirsty
maniacs may have signed
their own death warrants by
leaving behind a laptop com-
puter and possibly other
writings that spell out their
activities in shocking detail
l "They told people they

were father and son, but in-
vestigators have found out
the two men were really
lovers," declared an insider
familiar with the case.
Muhammad became close
to Malvo when he visited

Antigua two years ago — and
they quickly formed a close
bond that outraged Malvo's
mother Una.
"She said Muhammad was
brainwashing the boy into
being his slave and she
thought there was a sexual
relationship between her son
and Muhammad," divulged a
family friend. She turned out
to be correct.
Muhammad fled with the
boy to Bellingham, Wash.,
where they moved into the
Lighthouse Mission for the
homeless. The older man
stunned others in the mission
by acting wildly possessive of
he teenager.
A pal, who exercised with
the pair at a local YMCA,
said it was "a gay relation-
And he made this shocking
disclosure: "Muhammad put
his arms around Malvo and
seen kissing him
on several occasions.

"There were quite a few
gay guys at the YMCA and if
any of them looked at Malvo,
Muhammad would get furi-
ous. He often felt the young
man's muscles after a work-
out and said Malvo was his
pride and joy.
"He told the young man,
Allah is going to be proud of
you. You must be strong to do
his work.'
"The kid was totally in
Muhammad's power."
The pal, who requested
anonymity because he is
fearful of revenge by
Islamic extremists, divulged,
"Muhammad hated America.
He had links to Al Qaeda and

wanted to terrorize America."
A top federal law enforce-
ment officer revealed that
authorities are investigating
the gay relationship between
the two men and a shocking
connection with foreign ter-
rorists "in Canada, Seattle
and two other cities.
"Muhammad did quite a
bit of traveling and always
seemed to be able to get mon-
ey. We are checking banking
records of individuals and
groups suspected of terrorist
activity not only inEuropebut
also in Canada and in the
"Muhammad had contact
with a mosque in Northern
Virginia that was also fre-
quented by at least two of the
terrorists who crashed into

the World Trade Center.
While not being part of an or-
ganized group of terrorists,
Muhammad would be the
kind they use."
John Muhammad was not
always a twisted, driven man,
but his world began spinning
out of control after his second
wife Mildred hit him with a di-
vorce action in December
1999. He fled with their three
children to Antigua in March
2000. but he returned to the
states about three months lat-
er. The authorities were able to

return the children to their
mom in September 2001.
Alone and lonely, Muham-
mad — who sources say
enjoyed the company of
youngsters — turned to Mal-
vo for comfort and began

introducing him as his stepson.
"When Muhammad's wife
regained custody of their
three children, Muhammad's
latent homosexuality was
triggered," said Dr. Andrew
Hodges, a leading forensic
psychiatrist and expert on se-
rial killers.
The twice-divorced failure
in love and business suffered
from a crushed ego and he
buUt himself up by dominat-
ing Malvo, teaching him his
sharp-shooting skills and us-
ing the teen to help lash out in
anger at the world, say psy-
"In his fury, Muhammad
became the powerful man
with the gun" explained Dr.
In his warped mind, said

the expert, "Muhammad was
striking out at his wife."
Dr. Carole Lieberman, a
noted Beveriy Hills psy-
chiatrist who has studied
Muhammad's background,
added, "His notes and calls to
police show Muhammad has
an obsession with control.
The card on which he wrote'I i
am God' and the attempt to \
make police say'like a duck in i
a noose' are both attempts to '
control the behavior of others.
"But as he sought more ;
control over women, he re-
peatedly drove them away.
Finally Muhammad solved
this problem by getting a
partner — Malvo — who was
much younger and complete-
ly dependent on him."
His ultimate act of control,
triggered by his newgay relationship, was to snuff out the
lives of other people.
This past August Muham-
mad and Malvo traveled to
Baton Rouge, where relatives
had raised Muhammad after
his mother died when he was
3 and his father disappeared
from his life.
They stayed briefly at the
'-lome of Muhammad's first
cousin Chariene Anderson
- where, The ENQUIRER
learned, Muhammad and his
so-called stepson shared a
double bed.
Relatives noticed that
Muhammad, 41, had under-
gone a strange change. The
ex-Army sergeant baffled
his relatives with a claim he
was on a military undercov-
er mission. In a green duffel
bag, never far from his side,
he kept a rifle.

Authorities are looking
into the possibility the
snipers had accomplices, and
Chariene revealed that two
mysterious men called for
Muhammad while he was
staying with her and left
their phone numbers for him.
During his stay, John
asked Chariene if she knew
: where he could get bullets for
his rifle. She couldn't help
• him, but The ENQUIRER
las discovered where
Muhammad finally did find
his deadly ammunition.
"John bought four boxes of
.223s (the caliber used in the
sniper attacks) at a store on
Hooper Road," disclosed a
source close to the family.
"He said he needed them for
some undercover narcotics
Muhammad's treatment
of Malvo concerned his rela-
tives. He dominated the
younger man and kept him
Ei meager diet of crackers
honey. "At one point, my
band gave him some
noked salmon and he ate it but not in the presence
Muhammad," disclosed
Sheila Tezano, sister of
Muhammad's first wife Carol.
After his visit with relatives Muhammad bought bus
tickets for Washington state.

At Bellingham's Lighthouse
Mission for the homeless,
about 100 miles north of Tacoma, John Alien Muhammad
and John Lee Malvo were m
frightening figures.
The shelter's executive director, the Rev. Al Archer,
eventually concluded that
Muhammad was a dangerous
man linked to Islamic ex-
tremists and more than a
year ago unsuccessfully
tried to get the FBI to share
his concern.
Fellow residents won-
dered why Muhammad's
wallet often bulged with
$100 bills, and how he man-
aged to make expensive trips
all over America. Sometimes
he flew to Antigua where
he kept a savings account. It
was weird to have airline
reservation clerks contacting
a homeless shelter to book
one of the men.
Muhammad hawked a
Black Muslim newspaper,
The Final Call," on the
streets and distributed radi-
cal pro-Islamic pamphlets.
He also made visits to
Seattle to meet with fellow
Muslim extremists who are
being investigated by the
FBI as possible terrorists,
divulged sources.

But despite the fanatic's
outwardly impoverished ap-
pearance and no obvious
means of support, his cousin
Edward Holiday told The
ENQUIRER that on an earli-
er visit to Baton Rouge in
the beginning of the year,
Muhammad was boasting of
Owning a Jaguar and three
What's more, during the
three months he lived with

his three children in An-
tigua, he was able to keep
them in private school,
sources told The
ushmaster rifle he used
in his horrifying crime
cost a hefty $1,000.

Muhammad hypocritically
sought religious help from
Lighthouse Mission clergy
tbu later told his workout
paI, "I'm pulling the wool
over their eyes, making fools
of them. They have no idea
about me."
It the Lighthouse Mis-
sion, Rev. James Mitton told

The ENQUIRER: "It was all
extremely strange behavior
for a homeless man. It's

what finally made Rev.
Archer (the executive di-
rector) deeply suspicious
about John Muhammad."

Disclosed Rev. Archer: 
"After I got to know
Muhammad better, I sus-
pected him of being part
of a terrorist organization.
"I called the FBI in Octo-
ber 2001 but tragically they
didn't listen to me."
His colleague Rev. Mitton
elaborated further to The
ENQUIRER: "Muhammad
supposedly didn't have any
money, yet he could fly to
the Caribbean.

"He would go to California.
He would say he needed to
go somewhere on the East
Coast — and he had the
money to do it.
"Muhammad never had a
job that we knew about —
that was part of what
threw up a red flag. He
was apparently getting
money from an outside
While Muhammad
and Malvo lived in
Bellingham, the young
man's mother Una pur-
sued them to try to
get her son back, but
Muhammad threatened and
beat her into silence, say
sources. She finally sought
sanctuary in a shelter for
battered women, the Agape
Christian Women's & Chil-
dren's Home.
Muhammad even turn-
ed on Malvo before the
infamous killing spree began.
The ENQUIRER learned
exclusively that the young
man wrote to a young female
relative of Muhammad who
had befriended him in Baton
Disclosed a source in
Louisiana: "The young

woman got a letter that was
a cry for help from John Lee

"He wrote, 'I'm afraid of
John and I'm afraid that
John is going to kill me.'
"By that time, no one knew
where John was or how to
get in touch with him."
But now, The ENQUIRER
has learned, the bizarre
relationship, the pair's secret
contacts, the money pipeline
and much more will likely ex-
plode into the open because
of the laptop computer and
other information discov-
ered by cops.
The computer was found in
the pair's Chevrolet Caprice,
from which they launched
their terror campaign, and
contains a diary of their
brutal attack on innocent
Americans, say insiders.
"That laptop is real key," a
senior law enforcement offi-
cial told The ENQUIRER.
"It's how we are going to get
into their heads.
"We're also looking at a
mosque in Falls Church, Va.,
for leads to map out a net-
work that may lead us right
to Al Qaeda's doorstep.
There's an active cell in
Northern Virginia that
Muhammad may well have

hooked up with. And
Muhammad's ties to Louis
Farrakhan's Nation of Islam
are also important."
The ENQUIRER has also
learned that the FBI is close-
ly investigating the activities
of a violent Muslim group
operating in the U.S. called
Jamaat ul-Fuqra.
"We want to find the links
between Muhammad and
this group," said the official.
Felix Strozier, a former
friend of Muhammad and his
partner in a karate school,
knew him better than almost
anyone. He concluded: "He
was an angry man who
wanted to spread terror
through the country.
"Somebody was pulling
his strings. He was very mys-
terious about his links to
local Muslim groups.
"Muhammad always sur-
rounded himself with kids,
which also made me sus-
picious. He seemed to be
unusually attentive to
young boys. And I was
always suspicious of his
relationship with young
Malvo. They were always
whispering to each other
and giggling together.
"The relationship just
didn't seem healthy."

"We're also looking at a mosque in Falls Church, Va., for leads to map out a net- work that may lead us right to Al Qaeda's doorstep.

Is that the mosque within walking distance of the Home Depot at Seven Corners where Linda Franklin was murdered? Would people at that mosque have been aware of her identity as an FBI intelligence analyst involved in counterterrorism (and who I suspect was involved in the sniper investigation)?

By the way, if Muhammad had this animus against his ex-wives and against women, why were none of his 13 victims in the D.C. area black women? The omission is conspicuous. He did shoot one black woman back in Tacoma, but she was specifically targeted because of the family's involvement in Muhammad's custody dispute.

When the authorities in Bellingham investigated the relationship of the two, they seem to have made a deliberate decision to close their eyes to it. I suspect that was PC approval of a gay relationship.

Look on the bright side. If he beats the death penalty, he will have a warm welcome awaiting his sexual predelictions at Marion, Leavenworth, or wherever.

I knew homosexuals were behind this after the second or third murder. Why wasn't this obvious to Chief Bullwinkle?

The two seem to have connections with Western Washington University, a mini-Berkeley. The most active group on campus is the Gay/Lesbian Alliance and the town is quite full of lesbians. Margarethe Cammemeyer made her run for congress from here and ever since the lesbian population has been burgeoning.

What's the latest word on the murder committed months ago in front of a liquor store in Bellingham? Do the authorities think Muhammad and Malvo did it?

Mainstream media's worst nightmare - black, Muslim and gay. No wonder they were hoping so badly the sniper was a white Christian male.

Agreed. Black, Muslim, gay, illegal alien, released by an incompetent INS, hate America. And responsible for their capture: a middle aged white Christian trucker. LOLOLOL!

But I see the andriod lamestream media is avioding all of this by reporting on the fact that Mohammad was ex-military, a gun and bullets were involved in the murders, and that Moose is a genius. True to form.

If the 17-old boy is the other guys gay lover, then couldn't he be thrown in jail for raping a minor?

He's already in jail and there are more than enough charges to keep him there for what I hope will be the rest of a very abbreviated life.

There was some talk a while back about Muhammed wanting to kill his wife and children but wanting it to look like the 'unknown' sniper did it. For whatever that's worth. Looks like he may have gotten interupted in his task.

"Secret"?? Only to the RAT lapdog media, which couldn't bear to blame black islamic homosexuals for a multi-state murder spree. They never report any inconvenient facts that might interfere with their hatred of America.

What line of reasoning did you use to predict that? Any links that you can provide back to posts of yours before the perps were apprehended would be appreciated.

It's so ludicrous watching the mainstream media trying to find a motive. They totally, purposefully overlook the Nation of Islam angle which is right in front of their faces.

I saw Dan Abrams on Thursday or Friday and he had two EX-FBI guys on there and they mentioned the FINANCING of the snipers. Abrams immediately mentioned the robberies and went in another direction. He asked one an unrelated question and the EX-FBI said "can we go back to the financing, because it's really important." Abrams said they were out of time.

3 trips out the country, and constant travel within the U.S., Laptops, Two-way radios, GPS, the GUN, ammo - all this and with no job and no military pension.
