Who Is Frank R James?

According to the police sources, Frank R James has addresses in Wisconsin and Philadelphia. In recent years, James has posted several videos on social media, sharing “harshly bigoted views,” and critiqued New York City Mayor Eric Adams’ policies.

In the videos, the man, who looks similar to James reportedly expresses extensive rants, mostly about violence and race. He also connects those subjects with contemporary events like the Russian invasion in Ukraine and Mayor Adams’ policies.

The man took Mayor Adams’ name in one of the videos posted on the channel on 1 March and critiqued his recently announced policies on public safety at subways, which were focused on homeless people. He further went on to say that it was easy to commit a crime on a subway.

Two law enforcement officials have since confirmed that the videos in the channel featured James. [Read Also: Who is Santiana Rodriguez? Brooklyn woman arrested for Dunkin’ dispute murder]

After the videos came to light, New York Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell said that Adams’ security cover would be increased.

Two law enforcement officials said that a credit card with Mr. James’s name on it had been found at the scene of the shooting, as had a key to a van that Mr. James had rented. It appeared that Mr. James had rented the van in Philadelphia sometime over the last several days, driven it close to the subway line where the attack occurred and abandoned it there, one official said. The van was found by the police in the late afternoon on Tuesday.

Separately, the authorities offered up to $50,000 in reward money for information leading to the arrest and indictment of a suspect in the attack.

The police released a screenshot of Mr. James taken from a YouTube video posted by a channel belonging to the username prophetoftruth88.

The videos featured a man — who appeared to be the same man in a picture released by the police — delivering extended tirades, many of them overtly concerned with race and violence, often tying those subjects in with current events, including the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the policies of Mr. Adams. Two law enforcement officials said that Mr. James was the person featured in the channel’s videos.

In a video posted to YouTube on March 1, the person featured in the video criticized Mayor Eric Adams by name for recently announced policies addressing public safety in the subways, which focused on homeless people.
