A self-proclaimed white nationalist and supporter of child p*rn who was in federal detention on charges of kidnapping a 12-year-old girl have passed away.
Law&Crime has established with federal authorities that 42-year-old defendant Nathan Daniel Larson was pronounced dead on September 18, 2022, while awaiting trial on multiple felony counts.
According to court documents, Larson was charged with kidnapping and s*xual exploitation of a minor, receiving and distributing child p*rnography, transporting an individual across state lines to engage in illegal s*xual activity, and either coercing or enticing a minor to engage in such activity. Larson’s death means the Department of Justice can no longer pursue criminal charges against him.
“Nathan Larson died on 9/18/22. An order of dismissal in his case was filed on 10/11/22,” Lauren Horwood, a spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of California, told Law&Crime in an email. “I don’t have any details on his death.”
As stated in the dismissal notification, the prosecution “dismiss the indictment against Nathan Daniel Larson, without prejudice and in the interest of justice.”
The coroner’s report for Larson’s death is “pending,” The cause and manner of death are both recorded as “undetermined” by the Maricopa County Medical Examiner’s Office.
In December 2020, prosecutors claimed that Larson kidnapped a 12-year-old girl. Allegedly, he flew to the victim’s hometown of Fresno, California, and coaxed the child out of bed at around 2 a.m. to drive with him to the airport. He allegedly forced her to dress in disguise and pretend to be mute so they wouldn’t get caught.
Law enforcement officials said they discovered Larson had also “groomed” the child into sending him “p*rnographic images of herself.” They described him as a “white supremacist and a well-known advocate for pedophilia” in court documents.
Larson was reportedly questioned in a 2018 interview if he was a pedophile or if he just wrote about the subject and responded, “It’s a mix of both.”
“When people go over the top there’s a grain of truth to what they say,” he added.
Larson admitted writing a post under a pseudonym on a message board expressing a desire to “bang” his daughter. He said he lost custody and had to give up his kids. According to a 2017 interview with The Washington Post, he said that his daughter was staying with distant relatives in the Centennial State. The report stated that he had only seen the girl once and that her mother had committed herself.
Larson had tried three times to run for public office in Virginia before he was arrested on the abovementioned counts.
