An 18-year-old boy named Holden White was Seneca’s supposed homicide sufferer. He met Seneca on Grindr in 2020 earlier than agreeing to satisfy him in individual. In keeping with the DoJ, the 21-year-old drove out to the sufferer’s residence, held a gun to him, and compelled him into handcuffs. He then used “a number of strategies” to aim to homicide the teenager. It solely will get extra disturbing from there, as the discharge mentioned:

“Believing that H.W. was useless, Seneca then tried to dismember him.”

Simply terrible… However unbelievably Holden survived!

The teenager spoke to The Acadiana Advocate in 2021 and detailed what he remembered from the horrific scene, saying he wakened bare in a tub with Seneca making an attempt to dismember him after blacking out for some time:

“He’s within the means of doing my left wrist. He was slicing it … and it was very, very onerous. It was to the purpose that he was principally attempting to chop off my fingers. He was simply looking at me with a fearful look in his face, like a ‘I simply did this?’ look, I used to be laying within the bathtub, bare, bleeding out, the water crimson and chilly, and I bear in mind pondering, ‘Effectively, that is it.’ The final phrases I mentioned to myself have been simply ‘Keep calm,’ again and again and over in my head I used to be simply repeating to myself to remain calm.”

Completely horrific. And it sounds all an excessive amount of just like the legal’s inspiration…

Seneca ended up giving up and calling the police. White was taken to the hospital, the place he lay in a coma for 3 days. In the end he survived the assault, however not with out getting some critical accidents and PTSD from the scenario. He informed the outlet per week earlier than the sentencing his left hand and a finger on his proper hand are fully numb, his cranium is delicate to weight, and he suffers from nervousness. The sufferer pushed for the court docket to present a life sentence, saying:

“[I’m] scared for me and for different future victims he may hurt. I’m scared an 18-year-old, like I used to be, may have their life without end modified by a date.”

Seneca even learn aloud a letter in court docket, claiming he’s a “caring individual” with no “violent bone” in his physique. Uh… all proof on the contrary?

By way of a DOJ launch, this self-proclaimed nonviolent man was already plotting to kill once more:

“After his arrest, Seneca admitted that he had deliberate to proceed murdering homosexual males till he was caught or killed. Seneca acknowledged that he kidnapped and tried to homicide H.W. so as to fulfill a compulsive murder-fantasy. Seneca had develop into fixated with the concept of killing homosexual males, and this fascination led him to spend months designing a murder-kidnapping scheme that mirrored the murders of homosexual males dedicated by the infamous serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer. Seneca deliberately focused homosexual males, as Dahmer had accomplished. Seneca had additionally supposed to eat and protect the our bodies of his victims, as Dahmer had accomplished.”

“As Dahmer had accomplished.” Chilling. Particularly in mild of the controversy of the Netflix collection (pictured above, inset) being accused of glorifying the killer.

FBI Particular Agent Daniel English defined Seneca has a “fascination” with Dahmer and even named his pet rabbit after him, in addition to believed the serial killer wasn’t “a nasty man.” An earlier launch from the DoJ mentioned Seneca deliberate to observe within the footsteps of Dahmer by dismembering and conserving “elements of the sufferer’s physique as trophies, mementos and meals.”

Assistant Lawyer Normal Kristen Clarke of the Justice Division’s Civil Rights Division mentioned partly in a press release that this can be a grim reminder of prejudices the LGBTQ+ group faces:

“The info of this case are actually surprising, and the defendant’s resolution to particularly goal homosexual males is a disturbing reminder of the distinctive prejudices and risks dealing with the LGBTQ+ group right this moment.”

Brandon B. Brown, US Lawyer for the Western District of Louisiana added in a press release of his personal:

“Nobody ought to ever be subjected to the kind of horrendous actions that this defendant inflicted upon the sufferer on this case. The sufferer by no means thought that he would discover himself falling prey to a predator in such a method. Hate crimes corresponding to this are a high precedence for the Division and this workplace, and we take these sort of circumstances very severely.”

Each Clarke and Brown harassed the significance of web security to remind everybody all the time be cautious when assembly individuals on-line. Seneca’s federal sentencing leaves him with one other court docket date for his state fees of tried second diploma homicide. It’s protected to say he received’t be seeing the sunshine of day for a really very long time…
