The brother of a Roswell man — who faces charges of distribution and possession of child pornography — was arrested Thursday for posting a threat on Facebook directed at someone connected to his brother’s criminal proceedings.

Kory Adams, 35, of Roswell was arrested Thursday and made his initial appearance in U.S. District Court in Las Cruces on charges of transmitting interstate commerce communications containing threats to injure a person, according to an email from a public affairs officer in the FBI’s Albuquerque Division.

Adams’ preliminary/detention hearing is scheduled for Oct. 4.

If convicted, Adams could face a fine and up to five years in prison.

A criminal complaint filed by an FBI agent states that someone using a Facebook account with the username Kory Martin wrote a post threatening to murder an individual involved in the case of Dain Adams, brother of Kory Adams.

Dain Adams was ordered detained earlier this week by a U.S. District Court judge, after a preliminary/detention hearing on charges of distribution and possession of child pornography.

The complaint states on or about Sept. 25, the FBI received information about the post from an individual who does not reside in New Mexico.

The author wrote in the post that his brother was being held in federal prison on charges related to child pornography.

In the post, the author writes he believes his brother was “set up” and threatened to murder someone only identified in the complaint as “Victim 1.”

Agents investigating the threatening post recognized photos associated with the Kory Martin Facebook account as showing Kory Adams after a review of his New Mexico driver’s license.

Information from Facebook also included a GPS location that placed the user of the Facebook account at a residence in Roswell associated with Kory Adams.

The agent in the complaint states “Victim 1” does not reside in New Mexico.
