– DOUGLAS ARTHUR MCCAIN
An American man, Douglas Arthur McCain, born in 01/1981 in Illinois, never stayed in one place long. Between 1997 and 2000, Douglas McCain attended two different high schools in the Robbinsdale Area School District. On 05/14/2014 he tweeted, “I reverted to Islam 10 years ago and I must say In sha Allah I will never look back the best thing that ever happen to me”.
Investigators were aware that Douglas Arthur McCain had gone to Syria to join a militant group, but they did not yet have his body. A relative, Kenneth McCain, told The Associated Press that the State Department had called to tell his family that Douglas McCain had been killed in Syria. “We do not know if he was fighting anyone,” he said.
It was unclear when Douglas McCain, who had most recently lived in San Diego, went to Syria. He grew up outside Minneapolis in the town of New Hope, where he graduated from high school in 1999.
A cousin, Kenyata McCain, told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that she had spoken to McCain as recently as Friday and “he was telling all of us he was in Turkey.”
Minnesota criminal courts records show Douglas McCain had a few minor traffic offenses, including two instances where he was convicted of giving police a false name or ID.
FBI Director James Comey said in June 2014 that roughly 100 people had left the United States to join the conflict in Syria (see – Western-Jihadists ).
