“I Can’t Wait To Murder You” Valrico Man Charged With Cyberstalking

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, FL. – Acting United States Attorney Karin Hoppmann announced the unsealing of a criminal complaint charging Dominique Jade Dragan, 28, Valrico, with cyberstalking.

If convicted, Dragan faces a maximum penalty of five years in federal prison. He made his initial appearance in federal court on October 19, 2021, and was ordered detained pending trial.

According to the criminal complaint, from approximately January 2020 through July 2021, Dragan engaged in a course of conduct with the intent to harass and intimidate three victims.

Using Instagram, Dragan cyberstalked, harassed, and threatened the victims with a series of continuous messages. He made specific threats to kill the victims, including by stating, “I can’t wait to hear the bones in your neck break,” “I’m gonna put a bullet in your forehead,” and “I can’t wait to murder you.”

Dragan also included racially charged language and threatened the victims with violence if they reported him to law enforcement. Dragan’s conduct placed the victims in reasonable fear of serious injury and death.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Ilyssa M. Spergel.
