Matthew Taylor Coleman, 40, is charged with killing his 2-year-old son and 10-month-old daughter in Mexico on August 9

1. Coleman Was Allegedly Influenced by the QAnon Conspiracy Theory

According to charging documents, Coleman allegedly told police he was motivated by the QAnon conspiracy theory, which holds the false belief that former president Donald Trump has secretly been battling a cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles at the highest levels of political power and influence.

PEOPLE obtained a criminal complaint that was filed in the U.S. District Court last Wednesday. In the 10-page complaint, FBI special agent Jennifer Bannon wrote that Coleman claimed to be “enlightened by QAnon and Illuminati conspiracy theories and was receiving visions and signs revealing that his wife, A.C., possessed serpent DNA and had passed it on to his children.”

“M. Coleman stated that he believed his children were going to grow into monsters so he had to kill them,” Bannon wrote.

Coleman allegedly told Bannon that he knew his actions were wrong, but that the children’s death was the only way to save the world.

2. Friends Noticed a Change in Coleman Before His Arrest

PEOPLE has spoken with several friends and associates of Coleman. All of them describe him as a seemingly loving family man who doted on his wife and children.

“It just doesn’t compute,” Coleman’s friend Rachel Woodby tells PEOPLE. “This is not the man I know. This really comes out of the blue. He had no warning signs that he was capable of doing this.”

But others say that he began reading conspiracy theories online and seemed to start believing many of them. “He spent a lot of time looking at these conspiracies,” says another friend. “He devoted a lot of brain power to them. It became clear to me that he believed some weird stuff.”

3. Coleman’s Wife Reported Him and the Kids Missing — But Said He’d Never Hurt Them

Abby Coleman called police after her husband vanished with the kids. On August 8, an officer came to the family’s Santa Barbara home and took an official police report.

According to the criminal complaint, Abby told police that they had not had any marital problems. She claimed they hadn’t argued before he left. She had been unable to reach him by phone. She told police that Matthew would never hurt the children.

Authorities tracked his iPhone and saw that it had recently been in Rosarito, Mexico — a city about 20 miles south of the Mexican border. The case was handed over to the FBI.

4. Bodies of Children Were Discovered by Farmer

A farmer found the children’s bodies just hours after they were killed. When the farmer let his dogs out on Monday, the animals began to bark. When the farmer saw the bodies, he called Mexican police.

After making the grisly discovery, agents with Baja California’s State Security and Investigation Guard contacted U.S. authorities, saying that the suspect would likely be heading back to the United States. American border officers stopped Coleman as he approached the San Ysidro Port of Entry. He was arrested at the scene and has been charged with foreign murder of U.S. nationals.

Coleman is being held without bond. He has not yet entered a plea, and a public defender who represented him in his first court hearing has not returned PEOPLE’s calls for comment.

Aisha “Pinky” Cole is a restaurant owner in Atlanta, Georgia. On Saturday, she gifted 800 graduates, from her alma mater, Clark Atlanta University, with a jumpstart to opening their own business.

The Slutty Vegan CEO addressed the Class of 2022 during their commencement exercises. She then gave the whole class a limited liability company, or LLC.

“I partnered with Varo Bank to provide every single graduate in this audience with a new LLC and a path to entrepreneurship. Every single graduate in this audience will leave this stadium as a business owner,” she declared.

In 2009, Cole graduated from CAU after studying mass communication/media. She was also previously named Miss Clark Atlanta and was initiated into Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.

“Pinky Cole had a business and lost everything. My car got repo’d, got kicked out of my house, went flat broke, almost lost my mind. Almost four years later, she now owns and operates a $100 million vegan brand. She found aspirations in those losses. You think I was gonna give up because of some failure? Hell no! And neither will you,” Cole said as she spoke to the graduates.

“…the class of 2022. I want you to fail…fail so hard you become an expert in failure and you get a PhD in failology. I want you to fail because failing is not failing at all. It is finding aspiration in the losses.”

It is reported that the LLCs that were purchased costs about $400,000.

Cole has a nonprofit, the Pinky Cole Foundation, which strives to empower future generations by providing financial literacy support and entrepreneurship training.

Aaron Salter Jr., Security Guard Killed By Gunman In Grocery Store, Is Being Hailed As A ‘Hero’

On Saturday afternoon, a gunman, fueled by hate and wearing military-style clothing, shot many people at a grocery store in Buffalo, New York. 10 people died.

55-year-old Aaron Salter Jr. was a security guard at Tops Friendly Market. He was also an ex-Buffalo police officer. He used his prior training and exchanged gunfire with the gunman, Payton Gendron, 18.

Because of the body armor that Gendron was wearing, Salter’s bullets didn’t penetrate him. However, Salter was fatally hit by bullets.

“I don’t think that anybody could ever anticipate something like this happening. Everybody’s hurting right now. Everybody’s upset,” said Adam Bennefield, Salter’s cousin.

Prior to his death, Salter Jr. had operated a dry cleaning company with his wife before she died. She had also been employed at t he grocery store for 15 years.

“I’m a jack of all trades,” Salter once stated, as he worked on automobiles for fun.

In 2019, his son, Salter III, expressed how he felt about gun violence. “…we can’t even do everyday s–t without having to watch our backs. That’s scary af! The sad thing is I feel like a crazy close to home is gonna do something soon. I’m not ready for that.”

Salter leaves behind three children to cherish his memory.
