William Alfred Ring AKA “Tyler MD” (Currently in PA)

William Alfred Ring was identified as “Tyler MD” from messages and photos contained in the January 2022 Unicorn Riot leak of the Patriot Front chat server. In 2016, when he was 18 years old, William Ring was living in Portland, Oregon and voting for Donald Trump in the presidential election. Five years later, in 2021, he was on the east coast and active in the fascist Patriot Front organization. He appears to live in various towns around the Pittsburgh, PA area.

Within Patriot Front, William Ring acted as an “aid” to Grant MD (AKA Daniel Turetchi) and was very involved in the organizing of the December 2021 Patriot Front march on the US Capitol. He scouted locations, acted as security for the Patriot Front camp where they mustered ahead of the march, and was on one of the little plastic shield teams for the actual march. William Ring was involved in vetting prospective Patriot Front members, and also was responsible for putting up of Patriot Front propaganda in the DC area and Pennsylvania.

In June 2022, local Pennsylvania news reported that William Ring was arrested on hate crime charges for striking a teenage girl of Hispanic descent in the face in and yelling racial and ethnic slurs at her. In August 2022 he appeared in court on those charges and was filmed by local media leaving court with a Nazi pal who shouted “28” at the cameraperson. “28” is the numeric code for “BH” or “Blood and Honour,” an infamous neo-Nazi bonehead gang. One month later, in September 2022, William Ring was arrested again, this time for hitting some guy with a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire and punching two women in a fight over a refrigerator his roommate was getting rid of.

Thanks to the latest release of Patriot Front Chat logs by Unicorn Riot, we can identify Daniel Turetchi of Owings Mills, Maryland as “Grant-MD”. Turetchi is employed as a licensed Real Estate Agent for ExecuHome Realty in Parkville, MD, and an active member and Network Scribe of Patriot Front’s Network 9 (NW9), encompassing the Delaware, Maryland, Washington D.C., and Virginia areas. He resides at Beckett Green Condominiums in Owings Mills, Maryland, a Baltimore suburb, since purchasing a unit in 2018

The chat logs published by Unicorn Riot show that Turetchi leveraged his position as a real estate agent to secure a campground in Unionville, VA under false pretenses for his fascist cohort to stay for their December 2021 march in Washington D.C. In addition to interfacing with the lessors, chat logs show Turetchi also was in charge of camp security checkpoints, meeting members at an initial checkpoint before escorting them to the campground. Intelligence garnered from the weekend indicated that local sheriff’s deputies were alerted to the suspicious presence of vehicles idling and massing at seemingly odd locations, forcing arrivals to reconfigure their meet points several times. Antifa Seven Hills was able to contact the lessors, who were appalled to learn they were taken advantage of and lied to.

*UPDATE* As of January 25th, 2022, Tuertchi’s former brokerage confirmed that his employment has been terminated. This article has been updated to reflect that.
