Evidence from half-eaten burrito leads to Wisconsin man pleading guilty to firebombing pro-life center

A 29-year-old man who firebombed a pro-life center in Madison, Wisconsin, last year pleaded guilty Friday after DNA testing on a half-eaten burrito linked him to the crime, the U.S. Department of Justice confirmed to Fox. news.

On May 8, 2022, 29-year-old Hridindu Roychoudhury allegedly threw two Molotov cocktails at the Wisconsin Family Activities Office in Madison.

The attack, which included the threat “If abortion isn’t safe, you aren’t safe,” comes less than a week after a draft U.S. Supreme Court opinion suggesting overturning Roe v. Wade was leaked. It was held in

Roychoudhury was identified as a potential suspect last March, shortly after law enforcement officers recovered a burrito he had discarded in a public trash can and tested whether the DNA matched that collected at the crime scene.

Data shows that since the Supreme Court leak, pro-choice voters have been attacked 22 times more than pro-choice voters.

Forensic biologists were able to confirm that the two DNA samples matched and were likely the same person.

He was arrested at Boston Logan International Airport on March 28 after purchasing a one-way ticket to Guatemala City, Guatemala.

On Friday, he pleaded guilty to attempting to cause damage by fire or explosives, which carries a minimum sentence of five years in prison and a possible maximum sentence of 20 years.
