A Michael Jackson jacket helped the FBI identify a suspected Capitol troublemaker

Prosecutors said James Beeks, who works as a Michael Jackson impersonator, can be seen in photos and videos from Jan. 6 wearing the jacket.

(Washington) – A Michael Jackson tour jacket turned out to be a thriller for federal agents working to identify a suspected troublemaker at the U.S. capital.

Prosecutors said James Beeks played Judas in one Jesus Christ Superstar production and also working as a Michael Jackson imitator, can be seen in photos and videos from January 6 wearing the jacket when thousands of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol.

They said he is affiliated with the Oath Keepers, a right-wing extremist group involved in the attack. The Oath Keepers wore mostly camouflaged attire, but in photos from that day shown in court documents, one can see a man with them wearing a black jacket with the word “BATH” in bright red letters.

It’s the name of Michael Jackson’s world tour that started in 1987.

Law enforcers were able to find pictures on social media of a person they say appears to be Beeks and is wearing the same jacket as a man who took part in the January 6 riots.
