Fifth Jan 6 Defendant Commits Suicide While Awaiting Trial

A Florida man facing charges related to his alleged involvement in the January 6 U.S. Capitol riot has committed suicide while awaiting trial, according to police reports.

David Kennedy Homol, 55, was found deceased on April 17, having died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Homol has become the fifth person connected to the J6 incident to have taken their own life.

Federal prosecutors in Washington, D.C., filed a motion for abatement of prosecution and provided a death notice to U.S. District Magistrate Judge Robin Meriweather on May 7, the Epoch Times reported.

The FBI apprehended Homol on January 10, 2024, in Orlando, Florida, on felony and misdemeanor charges.

The charges included:

Obstruction of an official proceeding

Civil disorder

Assaulting, resisting, or impeding certain officers

Homol also faced several misdemeanor charges, including knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority and disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds.

Prosecutors allege that Homol assaulted two police officers with a plastic flagpole on January 6 at the Capitol’s West Plaza.

According to the FBI’s statement, Homol allegedly struck the first officer in the back and then assaulted a second one during a scuffle.

Homol’s brother, Dillon Paul Homol, 25, was sentenced to two years of probation and ordered to pay a $4,000 fine in January.

He was found guilty on three misdemeanor charges in September 2023 and pled guilty to one count of parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol building.

However, he was acquitted of obstruction of an official proceeding.
