Man remains in custody for Facebook threat


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

A Roswell man accused of threatening an individual on Facebook connected to a criminal case involving his brother was ordered Tuesday by a U.S. Magistrate Judge to remain in custody pending trial.

Kory Adams, 35, is charged with using interstate communications to threaten injury to someone. If convicted, Adams could face a fine and a maximum of five years in prison.

Adams was arrested Sept. 27 after a Facebook post — from someone identified as Kory Martin — threatened to murder an individual who appeared to be connected to a child pornography case involving Adams’ brother Dain.

Dain Adams, 37, of Roswell, was arrested Sept. 19 on a federal criminal complaint that alleged possession and distribution of child pornography. Dain Adams has been remanded into federal custody pending his trial.

The FBI received information about the threatening Facebook post on or about Sept. 25, where the author threatened to murder an individual who he believed had “set up” his brother.

FBI agents investigating the threat recognized images on the Kory Martin Facebook account as showing Kory Adams, following 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 Roswell residence associated with Kory Adams.
