According to court documents, when they did not die right away, Coleman stabbed his son 17 more time and his daughter 12 more times, cutting his own hand in the process. 

The charges make him eligible for the death penalty. If the Attorney General decides against the death penalty, Coleman’s maximum sentence would be life in prison with a fine of up to $250,000.

    On August 7 the Santa Barbara native left his California home in a Mercedes Sprinter van with his toddler son Kaleo and infant daughter Roxy.

    On August 9 Coleman was apprehended by police when trying to reenter the USA at the Ysidro Point of Entry.He then admitted to killing Kaleo and Roxy, telling federal agents that he was ‘enlightened’ by ‘QAnon and Illuminata’ conspiracy theories which claim the world is run by a group of Satan-worshipping pedophiles.

    He also said he was ‘saving the world’ because his children were ‘going to grow into monsters’ since he believed they inherited serpent DNA from their mother.

    According to court documents filed in LA, Coleman was ‘receiving visions and signs that his wife possessed serpent DNA and had passed it onto his children’. 

    If he didn’t kill them, he ‘believed his children were going to grow into monsters’. 

    Oddly enough, the surf school owner also admitted that he knew what he did was wrong. 

    In the indictment obtained by DailyMail.com Coleman allegedly ‘committed the offence after substantial planning and premeditation to cause the death of a person’. 

    After the murder Coleman put his children’s slain bodies in some nearby brush, discarded their bloody clothes in a blue trash bin and threw the spear fishing gun near a creek, serial TV korea the affidavit said.

    He was taken to Santa Ana jail the day after the murder and the Mexican authorities found the murder weapon, bloody clothes and a baby’s blanket.

    According to the court documents, when a jailer asked him why there was a band-aid on his hand he said it was from ‘hurting his children’. 

    A month ago an anonymous source said that Abby ‘didn’t see this coming’ and is ‘devastated’.

    The insider added: ‘No one did.But for her, she’s starting to question everything she ever knew about her husband. It’s devastating.

    ‘So now she’s wondering what she could have done to stop it. Those questions are going to haunt her. If she had any idea that he was believing all this she would’ve helped him get help.But she didn’t know. And now the worst has happened.’  

    In the months leading up to the crime Coleman’s posts on social media, which have since been taken down, veer from biblical quotes to prophetic and revelatory language.

    Coleman openly talked about a new type of ‘Great American Renaissance’ that ‘will empower each person’s heart to come alive and explode’.He goes onto ask if 2020 could just be the ‘birth pains’ of what is on its way in 2021?

    Indeed, the troubled father of two declares that his daughter Roxy Rain was ‘hand picked by God to slay the giants of the land’ and calls both his children ‘gifts from God’. 

    Federal agents will most likely be looking into the surf instructor's social media accounts, which grew increasingly devout since the pandemic. It is unknown how long Coleman was entrenched in QAnon
