The QAnon-obsessed father was brainwashed by conspiracy theories that allegedly killed his children with a spearfishing gun because he believed they had allowed snake DNA in a handwritten letter that he was ‘delusional’.
In the two-page letter reviewed by PEOPLEMatthew Taylor Coleman had written to a friend about what’s been going through his mind in the 10 months since he was jailed for the murder of his two children in August 2021.
“I was deceived,” Coleman wrote in a letter from an unpublished federal prison California. ‘I had deceived myself. I now know that the [reptile] DNA thing was a delusion in my own mind. I made myself believe there was none. ‘
Coleman has revealed that he killed his son Kaleo, 2, and daughter Roxy, 10 months, by shooting her in the heart with a shotgun after driving to Rosalito, Mexicofrom her home in Santa Barbara, California.
He is accused of two charges of foreign first-degree murder of U.S. citizens, and has pleaded not guilty. A trial scheduled for May has been postponed until the end of July.

Matthew Coleman, who is in federal prison, appeared in court on September 9 for the double murder of his two children. His next trial has been adjourned until the end of July
In the letter to his friend, Coleman revealed his thinking behind his belief that his wife, Abby, had reptile DNA that she passed on to her children – that was just one of several conspiracy theories the father consumed.
Now, without access to the internet with websites spraying conspiracy theories, Coleman wrote in the letter that he ‘must use my mind to figure things out’.
“I’m sorting it all out now,” he wrote. ‘There’s a lot to unpack, but I have to figure out what I really believe, but I no longer have access to information, so I have to use my mind to figure things out.’
In August 2021, Coleman and his wife were packing for a family trip when Coleman abruptly put the children in the delivery van and left their home in Santa Barbara, California.
Coleman’s wife Abby called police out of concern, but told authorities they did not believe their children were in danger and thought they would all return home soon.
But instead, Coleman drove the children to a ranch in Mexico, killing them with a spearfishing gun. Their bodies were found on the side of the road and Coleman was later arrested for attempting to return to America in the family’s Mercedes Sprinter Van.
After police picked up Coleman at the San Ysidro Port of Entry on August 9, 2021, and confronted him with the fact that they had found the bodies of the children, he confessed to the murders.
Coleman told authorities he was radicalized by British conspiracy theorist David Icke, and was obsessed with thinking there were ‘lizards’ on earth, public court documents.
Icke’s theories are so extreme that he is banned from Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.
“He stated that he first learned of ‘Lizard People’ on Twitter and of ‘that British man with white hair,'” FBI Special Agent Joseph P. Hamer wrote in his search.

In the notes, he continued: ‘I believe, based on my research into this matter,’ that British man with white hair ‘refers to David Icke, a British conspiracy theorist with white hair, who has published several books, including’ Children ‘of the Matrix’ who describes, among other things, ‘Nephilim’, ‘conceive  between the reptiles and the blond-haired, blue-eyed, Nordic peoples, ” reptylian DNA ‘, and’ royal ‘bloodlines[ of] the reptilian Nordic hybrids, ‘and their relationship with the’ Illuminati ”.
Icke’s conspiracy theories include that COVID-19 is not a real virus and that the pandemic was orchestrated to destabilize the world.
He is banned from entering Australia, accused of denying the Holocaust and considered anti-Semitic for his offensive suggestions that many of the ‘lizards’ he claims the world runs in a secret society are Jewish are.
Coleman previously told investigators how he believed he and his children entered the Matrix.
He told investigators that his real name was’ Neo. M. Coleman ‘and discussed time travel, teleportation,’ and testified that his children had warned him ‘about babies being placed in fireworks, food and walls.’
Coleman claimed that Q – the name of the anonymous account whose 2017 post on the image sharing site 4Chan launched the QAnon movement – communicated directly with him, telling agents that he ‘finally … saw the big picture that he had to kill his children to prevent them from becoming an alien species that would unleash carnage on the earth. ‘
Coleman ‘said he knew what he was doing was wrong, but it was the only action that would save the world’, according to court documents.
In the weeks and months before the killings, Coleman also became obsessed with QAnon. He ranted against agents after learning of the double murder, saying he was “either crazy or the only person left on earth who is a true man.”

Explaining why he killed his two children, Coleman mentioned during the interview that ‘Q’ actually talked to him ‘prior to the murders, the submission states, referring to the eponymous, anonymous online persona who started the 2017 conspiracy movement .
Coleman, who had told investigators that he killed the children because they had ‘snake DNA’, went on to say: ‘In any case, it was still possible to burn them in case [sic] a chip in them or so.
After more than 48 hours of failing to return his wife’s texts about her whereabouts, Coleman, while he lay with his two children in bed at City Express Hotel, a Christian resort in Rosarito, Mexico, just after 3 p.m., sent her a stream of bizarre text that offers a glimpse into his crushed mentality, the document reveals
‘Hi babe, miss you too,’ reads one of the texts, sent in the early hours of August 9 – the day of the murder, according to the submission.
‘Things have been rough, but are also starting to get some clarity. Still confused about many things and processing by them.
‘So many crazy thoughts are going through my head right now, hard to explain,’ he went on, adding that he ‘got some clarity from my grandmother [sic] ancient bibles. ‘
“Went to process everything and hope to get some answers.”
He then offered his four-year-old wife a horrible sign-off that apparently foretold the horrific acts he would commit late in the day, in the latest message he would ever send her.
‘Hope all this madness ends soon. Love you, ‘Coleman wrote, according to the warrant, before killing his children just hours later.
Coleman lived in Santa Barbara, California with his wife and two children. He left on August 7 and checked into the City Express Hotel in Rosarito, Mexico. Two days later, he was arrested after trying to return to the U.S. at the San Ysidro Point of Entry for the murder of his two children
The document further revealed that Coleman, after being picked up by officers on his return to the US two days later, told agents that he began to detect ‘strange coincidences’ five or six days before he committed the murders.
According to the warrant, Coleman discussed with researchers’ QAnon and Illuminati conspiracy theories, such as Strong’s numbers (an index of every word in the Bible), ‘before telling her he’ had experienced visions and signs that his wife had snake DNA. . ‘
Coleman remains incarcerated in federal prison. A schedule for the May 19 hearing has been postponed until the end of July. It has not yet been determined whether or not he is suitable for trial.
