Around 3:00 P.M. the same day, police arrested Charles Demar, identified as an acquaintance of Lynch. Authorities are calling Demar a person of interest, but have not charged him with the Lynch murder. They arrested him for drug possession after discovering materials used to manufacture methamphetamine in his home. On March 4th, Demar was charged with transporting methamphetamine for the benefit of a street gang, possession for sale of methamphetamine and manufacturing the drug. Because he has previous felony convictions for burglary and assault, he could face life if convicted on the current charges. In court on Friday, Demar reportedly broke down, crying out that he had lost his job, his wife, his best friend and his children and saying he needed help.
Some of the cooler heads on Stormfront are urging people not to rush to judgment on Demar or anyone else yet, and to allow time for more facts to emerge. David Lynch left 2 teenage daughters, an unborn child, and a fiancee behind.

It's obvious that David Lynch touched numerous lives in ways that frequently were not discussed publicly. Lynch did not get 1/100th the publicity that Dr. David Duke got; surprisingly, a number of people on VNN Forum said they'd never heard of him. A number of tributes have been posted on this lengthy Stormfront thread. One must understand that some have taken it hard, and express themselves with a bit of rough language. Here's but a sampling, starting out with a video tribute:
From americanfront: The American Front has suffered a devastating loss.
In the early hours of March 2, 2011, David Austin Lynch, our Brother, Comrade and Western States Chairman, was assassinated by scum in his Citrus Heights home. At this time details are unclear as to who committed this cowardly act or why.
Dave was a dedicated Father, Friend and Racial Activist. Generosity and loyalty were his hallmarks. Dave's years of service to his Folk, warm smile and uncompromising ideals will be remembered and kept forever in the hearts of all who had the honor of knowing him. The American Front, as well as the entire White Racialist cause, has suffered a tremendous blow as we have lost one of our best. Be it in the Kingdom of Heaven, or the halls of Valhalla, a more noble soul you'd be hard pressed to find. He will be missed but never forgotten.
Rest In Peace Brother Greyshirt.
Hail David Austin Lynch
From chrisnoble: I personally knew Dave nearly 20 years ago, and spoke to him on the phone a couple of times since then. I cant claim to have been close to him, but i do believe that i knew his heart. He was a dedicated racialist. Despite his faults(we all have them), he has been there for a very long time, and as far as i know, has never waivered in his dedication. I am truly saddened by this news. I feel as though i have been punched in the stomach. I was recently daydreaming about how if i ever won the powerball, i would get some of the remaining charismatic leaders of our movement together for something great. He was charismatic! A good guy. The movement suffers a huge loss. Even if all he ever did was inspire young Skinheads like myself some 20 years ago. I know for sure that at least a few hundred Skinheads were encouraged and inspired by Dave Lynch. 1000 HAILS MY BROTHER! I HOPE TO JOIN YOU IN VALHALLA! WHITE POWER! I hope that that the scum f**k that murdered you is subjected to Skinhead justice in some horrific way. Im just sick over this loss... RIP..
From VFMike83: I will miss my "fellow grumpy old man" who was always there to hate the world with me in our grumpy old man style ( as far as the skinhead scene goes, we definitely are the "grumpy old men"..lol). I dont even know what to say. Im still trying to wrap my head around it all. He'd give you the shirt off his back if he thought you were a comrade. We'd talk almost every week.. Another old school soldier gone, to be replaced no doubt by a 100 'know-it-all' cyber warriors.. A truly sad day indeed. My prayers go out to his family, particularly his daughters, who I know he loved with all his heart. RIP Dave! VF Althings wont be the same without your mead-induced maniacal laughter!
From Direct318Action: Dave was a rare individual indeed. The night after my daughter was born I was still awake and excited about the whole newness of this little life the Lord had entrusted to my wife and I and I called Dave to tell him about it. He was actually one of the first to know and the first to get a picture of the little booger. We talked about my impending fatherhood and Dave's experiences with being a father and I thank God that this was the last conversation I had with him. Had it been some drole conversation about what person said what about whom to whose mother's cousin I would have regretted it. I am glad that the last time I spoke to him it was a pleasant one about pleasant things.
Dave was only two years older than myself but when I was a kid of about fifteen I had some magazine articles about Dave and the Geraldo chair tossing episode had just come out and I remember thinking that I wanted to be able to meet this guy one day. Years passed and the American Front had dwindled down to nothing except a few guys here and there and seemingly out of nowhere here comes Dave. The first time I heard that Lynch had revitalized AF I thought they were kidding. They weren't. Under Lynch's aegis, AF is stronger than before. The first time I spoke to him I almost told him that when I was a kid I had looked up to the guy but I didn't. Now I wish I had.
Dave was also rare in that he had no real enemies. Even though he is a part of Blood & Honour American Division, it never stopped him from speaking to us, or to anyone else really. Dave was a good guy that wanted what was best for our people and had the drive to accomplish what he set his mind to.
He will be sorely missed.
We will have a Mass said for his soul and for his family's comfort.
