An Improvised Explosive Device Was Detonated Outside The Federal Courthouse In Portland…Nationalist Review Can Reveal The Identity Of The Alleged Perpetrator Of The Attack

UPDATE: Gabriel Agardberryhill has turned himself in.

Nationalist Review recently posted about how the individual responsible for the large detonation at the courthouse doors was nearly doxed by his grandmother thanks to a review she posted online for a protective vest that she had purchased him. Now, we can reveal the name of the alleged individual responsible thanks to additional comments made by his family members. If you haven’t heard about this story yet, check out our initial reports.

Gabriel Sebastian Agardberryhill, 18, is allegedly the man who threw the improvised explosive device at the federal courthouse in Portland, Oregon according to posts made by his grandmother and sister on social media.

Before we dive into the evidence, we’d like to please ask our readers a quick favor: do not harass the family members of this guy. The grandmother is shocked that her grandson engaged in this act of violence, she is a Trump supporter, and she’s been very vocal about her disappointment in what her grandson did. Seriously, there’s no need to harass them. The matter is all but settled now.

The Evidence, Explained:

A day before the explosion, Agardberryhill grandmother posted on her personal Twitter page a picture matching the one she left in her review on the website where she purchased the vest. We’ve embedded that tweet below, but it is archived here for convenience.

Please note that this tweet was sent one day before the explosion was executed.

Agardberryhill operates two Facebook accounts using two separate pseudonyms. Both of these accounts are friends with the sister or the grandmother, K.J. Hafdahl, and one of them posted the exact same image that was used in the review.

We’ve provided an archive link to that post here and the second on here, but the screenshots are available below.

According to the grandmother’s posts on Facebook, this alleged terrorist’s full name is Gabriel Sebastian Agardberryhill, born 4 April 2002, and he just recently turned 18. Here is an archive link to that post. His grandmother operates on Twitter under the handle “TRUMPSGIRL2020” and uses the same name as her Facebook account: Author KJ Hafdahl.

On Twitter, she’s expressed nothing short of disgust at finding out her grandson has been involved in these acts. “This is my only grandson,” she wrote, “I love him to death, and didn’t know he was going to do such a bad thing, I had been posting several things about the antifa and BLM, he knows I am against those riots big time…he chose his poison. His cheap vest was to protect him from the police’s rubber bullets.” (archive)

A day before the incident, she explained that she does not support the riots but that her grandson does and that she bought the vest to keep him safe:

“My grandson is a protestor down in Portland, he’s been there every day for who knows how many days, he’s adamant that BLM is a good movement. He does not partake in the violence but it has come to him from the police, so this has to stop. Right Now. Gma said so.” (see above for archive link)

After it was revealed he threw the bomb, she made clear once again that she had no idea:

“I am gramma and he was not being honest with me, I bought the vest for him last week, didn’t know he was going to bomb the fed building, big surprise to me, he said he was just hanging with the peaceful protesters” (archive)

Soon, his sister chimed in confirming that he is her brother:

“Okay so I was informed of all of this early this morning. This is my little brother and he spent his entire life in foster care along with me and my sister. He is a misguided kid. We don’t have parents in our life, and he is very vulnerable to being coerced into doing things.”

She also explained some background information on the brother and pleaded with people to leave her grandmother alone:

“Seeing my brother doing this, is so hard to process. This is a kid who spent years moving from foster home, to foster home, being abused. We all were. Just know, my grandma is just now back in our lives, we didn’t grow up knowing her, and she is innocent. Please leave her alone. My grandma who bought something for my little brother. My brother didn’t make that bomb himself. Someone gave it to him. This is a kid who just turned 18. Just got out of a correctional facility. Y’all keep saying she bought it for him to riot in. She bought it to keep him safe. I do not like that you’re attacking my grandmother, she has done nothing, and she thought he was out doing peaceful protests. I’m actually kind of appalled at how you all can talk about this woman. My grandmother, Karla had a brain tumor operation in 2005, she didn’t know any of this.”
