Targeted Town Won’t Raze White Supremacist’s House
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A small North Dakota town targeted for takeover by a white supremacist who now sits in jail on terrorizing charges has backed away from plans to condemn and raze his home, after a woman living there moved out and left it unoccupied.
Craig Cobb and fellow white supremacist Kynan Dutton had been living in the home with Dutton's girlfriend, Deborah Henderson. Cobb and Dutton are jailed for allegedly terrorizing residents with guns — claims they reject. Henderson has moved out. Cobb says she went to northern South Dakota, but Leith Mayor Ryan Schock says residents believe she's in Mandan. Henderson declined to say.
Leith attorney Tom Kelsch says the town has backed away from plans to demolish Cobb's house because an unoccupied structure can't be condemned under city ordinance.
