Delaware man with neo-Nazi tattoos sets off bomb at estranged wife’s home while out on bond for threatening her
A Delaware man with a neo-Nazi neck tattoo is accused of detonating a bomb outside his estranged wife’s home while free on bail for allegedly making a violent threat against the same woman.
Mark Consiglio was charged with three counts of manufacturing, possession and use of an explosive device after police said he set off a bomb Monday outside the woman’s Elsmere home, reported The News Journal.
Police said they found and neutralized three similar devices at Consiglio’s home less than a mile away after the bomb last broke a window overnight at the woman’s home.
Court documents show the pipe bombs used gunpowder as the explosive agent, and they also were built using ball bearings, BBs, duct tape, Teflon pipe tape and model rocket engine cases.
The 48-year-old Consiglio was arrested last month after police said he left a voicemail message threatening to “put a bullet in” in his estranged wife’s “head.”
He told police he became angry because his wife was “being a bad mother” to their preteen daughter, and Consiglio was charged with terroristic threatening, a misdemeanor punishable with up to a $2,500 fine and community service.
Consiglio was released on $500 unsecured bail and ordered not to have any contact with the woman.
A state ID photo shows Consiglio has an iron cross tattooed on his throat, with the Nazi “SS” insignia in the center of the design.
His Facebook photo shows Consiglio wearing a T-shirt with the “Aryan fist” or “white power fist” logo.
