The U.S. Attorney’s Office confirmed that Nathan Larson died on September 18, 2022, while in prison on felony charges.

Larson was being held on charges of soliciting child pornography along with other charges.

An order of dismissal was filed for his case on October 11th, 2022.

He was originally from Catlett, Virgina, and was extradited to Fresno, California back in 2020 after an investigation showed he had coerced a 12-year-old girl to sneak out of her house and fly away with him.

Larson dressed the girl up in a wig to conceal her identity and told her to “act as though she was disabled and unable to speak”.

When investigators learned that Larson’s flight had a layover in Denver, Colorado, they were able to find him and rescue the girl, returning her to Fresno.

Larson’s father was also arrested after assaulting a Homeland Security Investigation Agent during a search warrant of Larson’s Virginia home.

He was charged with a misdemeanor in Denver for harboring a minor but faced felony charges for child abduction, kidnapping, meeting a child for the intention of sex, and soliciting child pornography from a minor.

Larson was already in the public’s eye after he previously ran for office in Virginia to legalize child pornography while self-proclaiming himself as a “white supremacist”.

He also went as far as to say that Adolf Hitler was a “white supremacist hero”, as well as endorsed sexual abuse and rape of children.

Larson was even arrested back in 2009 after he sent a letter to the U.S. Secret Service threatening to Kill the President of the United States, for which he served 14 out of a 16-month sentence.
