Florida Man MURDERS Pro-Trump Boss, Drapes American Flag Over Corpse, According to Witnesses
According to a report from Click Orlando, a construction worker with anti-government views has been accused of murdering his boss, who was a “proud and outspoken American and pro-Donald Trump.”
Mason Trever Toney, 28, was arrested on Monday, January 20, 2020 for the murder of his boss, William Knight, 28.
According to the Orange County sheriff’s arrest affidavit, the fatal stabbing was reported at 10:45 a.m. at a construction site at Exit 254 of Florida’s Turnpike near State Road 528.
The arrest affidavit highlighted how a 911 caller reported that his co-worker, Toney, stabbed his boss to death.
Deputies reported that they discovered Knight lying dead next to an excavator with a brand new American flag draped over his body.
Witnesses claim Toney was spotted carrying back a backpack, which allegedly stored the flag, according to the affidavit.
According to witnesses, Toney and Knight were friends outside of work. Knight picked up Toney earlier in the day.
The two ended up getting into an argument over their opposing political views.
The affidavit stated that Toney is very outspoken politically and he said the government is out to get him.
Witnesses said they heard Knight scream for help and caught Toney stabbing him to death with a trowel.
According to the deputies, witnesses attempted to stop the attack and hurled objects at Toney, who then escaped into a truck and drove off while calling the witnesses “terrorists.”
Toney would later be taken into custody in Brevard County and arrested. The murder suspect is currently being held in Orange County without bond.
Friends and family immediately set-up a GoFundMe for Knight’s memorial services.
Knight is survived by his mother and father, brother, sister and immediate family.
