LinkedIn Account of Arlington Explosion Suspect James Yoo Reveals Paranoia and Accusations

A now-deleted LinkedIn account belonging to James Yoo, the man whose home allegedly exploded in Arlington, Virginia, on Monday evening while police served a search warrant, reveals a series of paranoid posts. The account was discovered just hours after law enforcement descended onto Yoo’s home after reports indicated that a flare gun was repeatedly being fired from inside. As police attempted to enter the home, shots from what was suspected to be a firearm were also heard.

Yoo, described as a “recluse” by a neighbor, had covered his windows in aluminum foil. Screenshots from Yoo’s LinkedIn account show that he accused his neighbors of being spies and expressed fears over white people. Yoo also called for an end to numerous government agencies, including the FBI, CIA, and NSA, in his LinkedIn profile.

A YouTube channel run by Yoo detailed his beliefs and numerous frivolous lawsuits against friends, family, businesses, and the government, including the FBI and DOJ. While his YouTube account remains online, his LinkedIn profile was removed sometime following the explosion.

In a statement, the Arlington County Police Department confirmed that three officers received minor injuries from the explosion. Yoo’s condition is currently unknown. An investigation into the incident is ongoing.
