USA v. Parish, Donavon
Hattiesburg, MS


[EDPA] Donavon Parish of Hattiesburg, Mississippi was charged by indictment for cyberstalking and making antisemitic threats targeting synagogues and Jewish-owned businesses. According to the indictment, in April and May 2022, Parish used a voiceover internet protocol service to make a series of phone calls to synagogues and Jewish-owned businesses in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. In these calls, Parish allegedly spoke to individuals answering the telephone calls on behalf of their respective institutions, at which time he repeatedly referenced the genocide of approximately six million Jewish people during the Holocaust, stating, among other things, "Heil Hitler," "all Jews must die," "we will put you in work camps," "gas the Jews," and "Hitler should have finished the job."
