The mastermind behind the armed neo-Nazi group known as The Base has been named as an American-born man living in Russia.
The Guardian identified Rinaldo Nazzaro, 46, as the real name of the ringleader who launched the group in 2018, and who also goes by the aliases Norman Spear and Roman Wolf.
Guardian - Nazzaro - Identity - Property - Deeds
The Guardian reported that it pieced together Nazzaro's real identity through property deeds, tax affidavits, business filings, marriage documents, and email exchanges involving the Stevens County sheriff, the FBI and a researcher with the Southern Poverty Law Center.
A confidential source inside The Base was also cited by the outlet as confirming key aspects of Norman Spear's biography to identify his real name.
Outlet - Nazzaro - Midtown - Manhattan - New
The outlet reported that Nazzaro previously lived in Midtown Manhattan and New Jersey, but is currently believed to be in Russia, living with his Russian wife that he married in 2012 in New York City.
The revelation shines new light on the group that gained prominence earlier this month with the arrests of six alleged members, whom federal prosecutors believe planned to attend a gun-rights rally in Virginia in the hope of provoking violence and starting a civil war.
