GRAND RAPIDS, MI – The Southern Poverty Law Center says the suspect in the fatal shooting of a security guard at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum recently transferred the domain name of his racist Web site to a man in southwestern Michigan.
Records show James von Brunn created www.holywesternempire.org in October 2000.
The hate-crime watchdog group says Steve Reimink acquired the domain name around the first of this month. The group designated it as a hate Web site in 2003.
