Former City Councilman With Trump/Pence Sign in His Front Yard Murdered


A former city councilman who had a ‘Trump/Pence’ sign in his yard was murdered in his home by a burglar following a “confrontation” in Cocoa, Florida.

75-year-old James Wallen was found by his wife last Friday afternoon and despite medics arriving within minutes, the man was already deceased.

43-year-old Matthew Inklebarger broke into Wallen’s home before killing him and stealing several items, according to police.

“Police said they believe Inklebarger targeted the single-story home, which sits in the scenic community along the oak and palm tree-lined riverside,” reports Florida Today.

Former City Councilman With Trump/Pence Sign in His Front Yard Murdered

A former city councilman who had a ‘Trump/Pence’ sign in his yard was murdered in his home by a burglar following a “confrontation” in Cocoa, Florida.

75-year-old James Wallen was found by his wife last Friday afternoon and despite medics arriving within minutes, the man was already deceased.

43-year-old Matthew Inklebarger broke into Wallen’s home before killing him and stealing several items, according to police.

“Police said they believe Inklebarger targeted the single-story home, which sits in the scenic community along the oak and palm tree-lined riverside,” reports Florida Today.

“In the front yard is a campaign sign for President Trump while an American flag could be seen hanging from the garage.”

Authorities haven’t revealed whether Wallen’s Trump sign was a motive for the murder, describing the incident as a “random burglary,” although police say the two were involved in a “confrontation.”

Forensics experts are still investigating how the murderer broke into the home and killed Wallen.

Wallen served on the Cocoa City Council twice in the late 70s and 80’s and was also an English teacher.

Inklebarger’s friend, 44-year-old Cecilia Poteet, was also arrested in connection with the burglary and homicide, according to police reports but authorities haven’t said how she was connected to the incident.

It is not proven that suspects murdered man due to TRUMP/PENCE sign in his front yard BUT it is known there was a "confrontation" between suspect and victim.

Is it coincidence the guy had a Trump sign in his yard or was this home singled out due to TRUMP sign in his yard?

I seriously doubt it was because of the sign. Shame on people capitalizing on this .

Of course the victim is not to blame.

The killer is the one who chose to kill. It was ALL on him.

People do things because they chose it. No one controls anyone. That's frivolous.

A sign or valuable property didn't lead to this. The mind of a psychopath is entirely behind this act.

Unless the murderer admits that was his reasoning it is a coincidence.

They caught the pos, that is what really matters.

One might think a Trump sign would be a deterrent as they are more likely to be practicing their second. reply to: DeathSlayer

Is there just one suspect or more? is my first question.
Second, the police have made no association at all to the flag flying, but rather that it was burglary, and if the deceased was in a confrontation, that might just be something to be expected in the circumstances.
Just to add, the suspect they have is a known felon, as for his girlfriend, she was arrested for pawning the victim's wedding ring.
A more thorough source, obviously AJ left out a lot.

Wife and I are on the road a lot in our motorhome, cabin or motel and we have a plan. She answers the door if it's an issue she drops to the floor because hollow points are soon to follow. If they try to grab her she's limp and they are soon to follow only permanently.

Everybody needs a plan anymore.

There is a reason why President Trump has the "silent" majority on his side.

That’s the plan? Your wife ducks while bullets wizz by? She must really trust you.
I hope she never trips answering the door.

This seems a bit of a stretch. I’m not saying it’s not possible but maybe wait for some more facts to come forward before claiming it’s due to political differences.

This dude wasn't killed because he was a Trump supporter. He was killed because he lived in a nice home and had money.

Just like the dude that committed the crime. Hes probably not pre occupied with politics. He is just a low IQ criminal.

Of course there was a confrontation, someone broke into the guy’s f*cking house. What was he going to do, offer him a glass of f*cking lemonade then help him carry his own belongings out? Come on, now.

The same people on this forum that will spout off about the media dividing us will post links and quotes from that same media without even questioning it, while telling others they’re spoon fed by the media. Tight work.

You can sense that OP deeply wants the narrative of this story to read: Former city councilman murdered by Biden supporter over Trump sign.

But you showed restraint, kudos for fair reporting.
