Additional Information The motive for this incident is unclear. A co-owner stated that one of the suspected perpetrators, Edward Hawley, had made threats about the job the shop did in painting his car; hence, this case is coded as doubt terrorism proper. However, the group The Order II was created to carry out the white supremacist mission of the original group which collapsed after members were captured. David and Deborah Dorr led the Order II and were eventually captured and sentence for their crimes with the group, as was Edward Hawley.
