Non-Violent Jan 6 Defendant Dead

( – The prosecution of the participants in the January 6, 2021, events at the US Capitol might have claimed another life after a young man, accused of committing nonviolent “crimes” on J6, died as a result of suicide.

22-year-old Nejourde “Jord” Meacham recently died while facing four misdemeanor charges over his completely nonviolent actions during the US Capitol breach by former President Donald Trump supporters over two years ago.

The cause of Meacham’s death has not been revealed publicly by an online obituary of Jord Meacham, of Pleasant Valley, Utah, who died on August 28.

However, Julie Kelly, who has been doing extensive reporting on the trials of J6 defenders, quoted “a very reliable source” as telling her the young man had committed suicide, Breitbart News reports.

According to the US Justice Department, Jord Meachem went to the January 6 “Stop the Steal” rally with his uncle, Odin Meachem, 37, an MMA fighter arrested in May 2023 over the US Capitol events.

Odin Meacham has been charged with violent criminal actions, attacking Capitol police officers using a wooden pole.

However, the federal complaint against Jord Meacham contains no accusations of violence. It only features several photos showing him walking around during the J6 events, both inside and outside the US Capitol.

According to the complaint, Jord Meacham went inside the US Capitol after its breach by protesters. After that, he “walked to a broken southern window, looked out, and raised his ‘TRUMP 2020’ flag.”

Subsequently, the young man was led out of the Capitol building by law enforcement officers without committing any acts of violence or destruction.

If his suicide is confirmed, Jord Meacham would not be the first of the January 6 defendants to have killed himself.

Among those who took their own lives while facing charges by the US Justice Department is Matt Perna, a 37-year-old man from Pennsylvania.

Perna was also charged with nonviolent crimes during the Capitol events and had pleaded guilty.

His family has said that the Pennsylvania man perished of a “broken heart.”
