Man killed Timothy Caughman for a ‘rush’, wanted someone younger

The white supremacist who killed 66-year-old Timothy Caughman, a beloved can collector, said that he wanted a “rush” but instead of getting a thrill, he was left in a “daze.”

“He said he wished he had did it to somebody younger,” a law enforcement source told The New York Post on Sunday. “Once he did it, he expected a rush but he didn’t get it. Then he was just walking around in a daze.”

James Harris Jackson killed Caughman is what Mayor Bill de Blasio described as an act of “domestic, racist terrorism” by plunging an 18-inch sword into Caughman’s back after following a different black man for some time before hesitating and then shifting to a different target after a couple coming out of a nearby building spooked him.

Jackson has since been charged with second-degree murder as a hate crime.

Prosecutors claimed that Jackson traveled by bus from Baltimore to New York City in order to kill as many black people as possible. Jackson had reportedly gone to New York because he wanted media coverage of his crimes and only turned himself in because he was afraid he might attack a mixed race couple that he had seen. According to Jackson’s attorney, he has “obvious psychological issues.”
