Robert Crimo Faces 7 Counts Of First-Degree Murder In July Fourth Massacre Pixabay

A man reportedly pleaded guilty to attempting to commit a hate crime after he plotted to commit a mass shooting to “slaughter” 3,000 women at an Ohio university.

Tres Genco, 22, of Hillsboro, Ohio, pleaded guilty on Tuesday, Oct. 11, to one count of attempting to commit a hate crime after admitting that he planned to commit a mass shooting and kill thousands of women at an unnamed university in Ohio, WHSV reported.

Genco, a self-identified incel, short for involuntary celibate, is one of the members of the online community of incels. Incels are mostly men who harbor anger toward all women and think they “unjustly deny them sexual or romantic attention.”

Genco reportedly created several profiles on popular incel websites and made hundreds of posts from July 2019 to March 2020. In one such post, Genco described spraying women and couples with orange juice in a water gun.

Genco was attending Army Basic Training in Georgia when he first began posting on the websites. However, he was later discharged for entry-level performance and conduct in Dec. 2019, NPR reported.

A month after being discharged, Genco scouted out a university in Ohio on Jan. 15, 2020, in preparation for a mass shooting. The same day, Genco searched online for topics such as “planning a shooting crime” and “when does preparing for a crime become an attempt?”

In March 2020, deputies with the Highland County Sheriff’s Office were called to Genco’s home for a domestic issue between him and his mother. According to Detective Vinny Antinore, when the officers responded to the scene, they noticed weapons and body armor “that just looked out of place.”

In a further investigation at the residence, deputies found several weapons including a firearm with a bump stock attached, a modified Glock-style 9mm semi-automatic pistol, several loaded magazines, body armor, and ammunition boxes. Genco admitted in his guilty plea that he possessed both firearms in furtherance of his mass shooting plot.

Investigators also found Genco’s manifesto in the residence. In the manifesto, Genco had written about killing women “out of hatred, jealousy, and revenge.”

Genco also envied Elliot Rodger, who killed six people and injured 14 more at a California sorority house in 2014. Genco wrote in his notes that he believed that his “extremely empowering action” of killing women would compare to that of Rodger's California sorority house massacre.

Law enforcement also found another note from Genco that said that he hoped to kill 3,000 women.

Following the discovery, officers arrested Genco. He has been in custody since his arrest in July 2021. The charge of attempting to commit a hate crime, to which Genco pleaded guilty on Tuesday, is punishable by life in prison.
