SACRAMENTO --- Considered one of the most powerful figures in America's White Power movement, David Lynch was murdered Wednesday by a gunman who also shot and wounded Lynch's 33-year-old girlfriend.
Police have yet to make any arrests in connection with the killing.
According to London's Daily Mail: Lynch was "Described as a very powerful and charismatic man, [who] aimed to stop in fighting among the country's disparate supremacist groups and bring them together. He was associated with two of the nation's most prominent hate-group leaders, William Pierce of the National Alliance of West Virginia and Tom Metzger of White Aryan Resistance."
The Web site White Revolution had the message "Hero, Patriot, and Friend." posted on its home page Thursday.
The Anti Defamation League says Lynch took over the American Front in 2002 and his greatest achievement was connecting other white supremacist groups inside the United States and Canada.
Authorities now fear revenge attacks for the murder.
