Warrant obtained for man behind Holy Ghost Prep Instagram threat

Bensalem Police are searching for Christian DeFlorio, a former student

Bensalem Township Police received an anonymous tip that someone had posted a threatening video on Instagram directed toward the Holy Ghost Preparatory School.

Bensalem Police notified school administrators of the threat, and the school decided to impose a shelter-in-place order out of an abundance of caution. A short time later, the shelter-in-place order was lifted. There were no class interruptions.

Police quickly identified the subject as Christian DeFlorio, 30, who was a former student at Holy Ghost Prep. Police have also confirmed that DeFlorio is currently in Miami, Florida, and is not a direct threat to students at this time.

Bensalem Police have obtained an arrest warrant for DeFlorio, charging him with Terroristic Threats and related charges. He owns a white 2019 Alfa Romeo with red interior bearing PA registration KGE-2435. If you have any information about the location of DeFlorio or his vehicle, do not approach him — dial 911 and notify police.
