Jimmy Kimmel mocks QAnon followers over bizarre JFK Jr conspiracy
A Michigan man shot his wife three times after claiming QAnon members "told him" she was a CIA agent and needed to be killed.
Troy Burke, 45, was charged with open murder and felony firearms after killing his wife Jessica, 29, in their home last year.
Burke told prosecutors that he was receiving messages from QAnon – an eccentric group of conspiracy theorists who believe there's a deep state with child-eating paedophiles – through his tablet device.
According to The Morning Sun, the alleged "messages" urged him to kill his wife because she had ties with the CIA and was involved in a sex trafficking ring. It is unclear whether the messages were genuine or imaginary.
Burke then told investigators he had a "neuro-link" transplanted in his brain at a hospital in Grand Rapids, and as a result, people could read his thoughts.
The 45-year-old also had some elaborate theories about president Joe Biden.
Gratiot County Prosecutor Keith Kushion explained: "He also said that (President) Joe Biden had twins, a daughter and a son and that the son had a sex change and that's who his wife was."
