In one of the stranger stories surrounding the so-far entertaining presidency of Donald J. Trump, a man who claims that he will assassinative the President is still successfully evading police.

More than two months ago, Shawn Christy went on the run after making a threat to kill both Donald Trump and a local politician with whom he disagreed.  Now, eight long weeks later, there have been only brief sightings of the would-be killer, the latest taking place just miles from Washington DC.

A Pennsylvania man who threatened to kill President Donald Trump back in June is still on the run and was last seen in Cumberland, Maryland, earlier this week in a stolen truck, the U.S. Marshals Service said.

A warrant was issued June 19 for 27-year-old Shawn Richard Christy and he remains wanted by federal authorities for threatening other elected officials as well.

Authorities have not been able to locate Christy since the warrant was issued. He drew federal authorities attention with his remarks about the president on Facebook and his previous behavior.

Though he may be easy to spot, Christy’s story will likely not end in a swift or graceful manner.

Christy is considered by the U.S. Marshals, FBI and U.S. Secret Service to be armed and dangerous.

Authorities say Christy has a distinct lisp and a barbed wire cross tattoo on his upper right arm. He also, according to authorities, considers himself a survivalist.

Christy also said that he was going to use “lethal force” on any law enforcement attempting to detain him. He made the comments between June 3-12.

There is currently a $20,000 reward for information leading to the capture of Shawn Christy.
