Paranoid anti-Mason conspiracy nut shoots neighbor to death

A paranoid anti-Mason in Milwaukee, Wisconsin shot and killed his neighbor last week, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported.

The victim, Mark A. Wright, was a "god-fearing man who went to church every Sunday," a member of his church told reporters. There is no mention of whether Wright was a Freemason.

A second story from the same newspaper reported that the alleged killer
Rene Stermole decided some time ago that Wright was not only a terrorist in touch with Libyan despot Moammar Gadhafi, but also was tied in with Mafia members, biker gangs, El Rukn street gangsters from Chicago and various other figures out to do him harm. Stermole had worried for many years that his shadowy enemies would come after him and guarded himself accordingly: They threatened to attack his wife, so he never married, and they used Wright to stalk him, so he got a digital camera to document it, he told police.
Stermole has been associated with the anti-Masonic website TheForbiddenKnowledge.com for the past ten years.

Apparently Stermole is a Christian believer in "end-times" prophecy, and blames all sorts of bogeymen for the world's woes. His website indicates he suffers from major paranoia, and lists as "partners" FreemasonryWatch.org, Illuminati-News.com, and a group called Wake Up America. His site includes a link to audio files by the late paranoid conspiracy theorist / UFO nut William Cooper, author of Behold a Pale Horse.

Stermole himself apparently has written a 13-chapter book titled "America's Subversion: The Enemy Within, which can be found here.

On this page you'll find his diatribe against Bro. Ed King of MasonicInfo.com. Stermole begins his rant by saying "Ed King's website is full of lies and deceit. He fails miserably in disproving Freemasonry is Satanic to the core." Here's a link to Bro. Ed's mocking, giggling article "exposing" Stermole's anti-Masonic website Bible Defense.

  1. Having been acquainted with death, my very deepest sympathies are with the victim's family.

    I also weep for the assailant, he was obviously a very troubled man. I hope he can find healing.


  2. Sounds like an untreated case of schizophrenia to me.

  3. Just a few corrections. Stermole's "America's Subversion: The Enemy Within" was posted on The Forbidden Knowledge for quite some time, however it wasn't Stermole's site.

    Robert Howard's popular conspiracy site, Wake up America/Hardtruth, was a clearing house of sorts during the late 90s into 2002. It was Howard's site that Stermole had posted his "America's Subversion: The Enemy Within." When Howard shut down the site, The Forbidden Knowledge mirrored most of it and put it on their site.

  4. I happened upon this website researching information about my uncle's killer and why he would do such a thing to such a great man. My uncle Mark lived and devoted his life to his family as well as others. He was a great man who enjoyed spending time with his FAMILY (wife, children, mom, dad, brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews) his entire family. He prided himself with being a good person to family and friends and was a great role model for his children, as well as nephews and nieces, who all considered him as not just an uncle but a father, and a very important part of their life. He was also a mentor for many children. He was a loving and devoted husband and father of three and on a regular basis enjoyed going on father and son fishing trips with his father, brothers, and son. He also was a happy and enjoyable part of his daughter’s lives as well. Mark comes from a very close family who travels together. He also helped coordinate annual family reunions. He helped anyone who may have needed it, even if all they needed was a listening ear. Adults who new him as children remember him as the nice man who put basketball courts up on his garage, even with not having any children of his own at that time, just to give them something to do. Mark received a Horticulture Degree where he used his talent to make things beautiful. In his free time he would help family, friends, and neighbors (even the man who killed him) with making their homes beautiful, whether it was inside their homes or on the outside in their yards with landscaping. Mark was a great neighbor to all, and on any given day you could find him working in his yard, and hosting family and friend fish fry’s, and barbecues. He also used his part-time landscaping business to employ teens to help keep them off the streets. Mark was loved by everyone he crossed paths with. He lit up a room when he walked in with his bright smile and warm cheery hugs and kisses which he gave to everyone he greeted. Mark was a faithful member of his church (Pilgrim Rest Missionary Baptist Church) where he attended church every Sunday with his wife and children and was involved with many ministries within the church ranging from Trustee to Hospitality. Mark was a great part of his family, the community, and his church. My uncle had no association what so ever with any of these so called gangs and other organizations Stermole speaks about, he also had no enemies. Mark’s Family morns a GREAT loss of their warm, articulate, energetic, fun-loving, charismatic, husband, son, father, uncle, and nephew, who in the blink of an eye was taking from them with this hateful crime. One of the websites I visited stated that Stermole was a Christian, Our family is completely outraged at this blasphemy, if that be true he ruthlessly murdered another Christian in cold-blood. He used this so called website to kill my uncle and plead insanity.

  5. a religious fanatic killing one of their own? are we in iraq or america?

    and they say it's not a religious war!

    long live the crusades.....

  6. May light shine the victims loved ones and love fill your hearts with joy of a life well lived.

  7. I just want Stermole and his ilk to know that, as a Mason, I work tirelessly day-in and day-out to assure Masonic hegemony in the world economy, in world politics, in religions of the world and in his own personal life and those of his ilk. I will not rest until Freemasonry has assimilated the people of the world into a New World Order. "Resistance is futile."

    Fraternally yours,
    The Libertarian

  8. Neicy Niece,

    I am so sorry for your loss. I know the kind of hole the death of such a bright soul can leave in a family.

    Mr. Sternmore, by all descriptions I've heard, sounds certifiably insane, most likely a paranoid schizophrenic in need of treatment, as Banana said. I would encourage you to open yourself to the possibility that he is actually insane, and let forgiveness, and so healing for yourself, flow. Maybe not now, but later. Be well.
