Robert Mondragon, a self-proclaimed body modification “mechanic,” posted pictures of his blood soaked face, clothing and a book on Facebook early last year. On Friday, the Broward Sheriffs Office (BSO) announced Mondragon was arrested for leaving dead animals at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Coral Springs. Officials say Mondragon was obsessed with mass school shootings and murder.
In late 2020, Mondragon abandoned his traditional Facebook profile when he started a new profile under the pseudonym “Mors Mortem.” Mondragon’s last post as “Mors Mortem” was made in late July 2022.
His profile was filled with disturbing imagery. Mondragon often posted information about suicide, autism and the Twisted Metal video game.
On January 26, 2022, Mondragon posted a selfie with the caption, “Dying on the inside, surviving on the outside.“ Mondragon is wearing a Henry D. Perry Education Center lanyard around his neck. It is unclear if the photograph was taken inside the school.
On February 5, 2021, a disturbing selfie shows Mondragon’s face and tshirt covered in blood. Another photograph posted that day shows pages of Bret Easton Ellis’ American Psycho novel smeared with blood.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO) arrested Robert Mondragon for placing dead ducks, raccoons and opossum on a memorial near Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Earlier this summer, officials discovered mutilated animals left at the site. Detectives determined a white Nissan Sentra with illegal tinted windows was nearby on each occasion.
On July 31, 2022, BSO deputies stopped a white Nissan Sentra near MSD. Mondragon, a Margate resident, was behind the wheel. When asked about the bird feathers and blood on the passenger seat, Mondragon said he likes “the metal and blood smell that emit from the dead animal.”
BSO detectives said Mondragon’s facial tattoos are similar to tattoos worn by an American Horror Story character. The character appears in a storyline dealing with a school shooting.
Detectives also found “text messages about school shootings and internet searches about school shooters, how to break into steel doors, shootings involving multiple victims, pipe bombs, as well as slang terms for killing cops. Further concerning evidence revealed that two weeks before the end of the 2021/2022 school year, Mondragon walked the path the MSD school shooter took from the high school to Walmart on Feb. 14, 2018.”
BSO says Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco And Firearms (ATF) agents are pursuing possible federal charges against Mondragon.
