Abdel Majed Abdel Bary — a 23-year-old British Egyptian man who reportedly left his home in London to join jihadist fighters in Syria last year — is one of three people multiple media outlets have identified as suspects in the gruesome videotaped execution of American journalist James Foley. Prior to his involvement with Islamic extremists, Bary had a rap career, and in that past life he expressed support for a different group, the online activist hacker collective Anonymous. Bary, who used the musical aliases Lyricist Jinn and L. Jinn, has generated the most headlines of the trio who have been publicly linked to Foley’s death. His infamy is due to his rap career, a tweet he sent earlier this month showing him holding what appeared to be a severed head, and that his father, Adel Abdel Bary, is currently in U.S. federal prison charged with“conspiring with members of Al Qaeda … in connection with the 1998 bombings of the U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania.” (BusinessInsider)
