New Yorker Christian Maire (photo), 40 years of age and father of two, was the leader of an online sexual predator group called the “Bored Group.” The gang of nine sexual offenders was convicted to decades in prison at the beginning of December 2018 for luring and exploiting girls aged 8-17.
The fight occurred on Tuesday the 1st of January 2019 and Christian has been pronounced dead on Wednesday night at an undisclosed hospital. Preliminary investigations indicate that at least one attacker had an improvised knife, commonly known as a shiv.
Friday 4th of January 2018, the Federal Bureau of Prisons released a statement saying that Christian Maire died of life-threatening injuries following a violent altercation involving other seven inmates at the low-security Milan detention center. It holds 1,370 inmates, and it’s situated 45 miles (72 km) southwest of Downtown Detroit, Michigan.
Furthermore, some sources indicate that the other two injured inmates are ex-members of the pedophile group: Michal Figura, 36 years old, an IT specialist at the University of Pennsylvania convicted to 31 years and Jonathan Negroni Rodriguez, 37 years old, of West Hollywood, California convicted to 35 years.
Raymond Cassar, the attorney of Jonathan Negroni Rodriguez, had this to declare:
“It’s murder and it’s horrible for anyone to get hurt or injured. This just doesn’t happen in a Michigan federal prison system.”
According to prison records, at least five other gang members are incarcerated at Milan detention center.
Their arrest by the FBI back in 2017 made the national cover. The men were using elaborate psychological schemes and internet tactics to manipulate underage girls to perform sexual acts and even self-harm. Each member had its role and hunted systematically on websites such as Gifyo, Periscope, YouNow, and MyLOL.com. A complex communication system was put in place between the gang members that would conspire against underage female individuals. Often, they’d use videos and images of young boys to deceit the girls into performing various acts. They would also keep an archive of girls including personal information and a psychological portrait. All nine offenders were convicted between 30 and 40 years of incarceration.
Following the incident, the prison went into a “limited operational status,” suspended visits, and started an investigation. Out of the seven inmates involved in the fight, three were seriously injured, and two staff personnel were treated for minor injuries.
