- Elizabeth Williams and her boyfriend Bradley Bennett were arrested in connection with the riots at the Capitol.
- Williams is a lifestyle coach and essential oil guru, The Daily Beast reported.
- And Bennett posts regularly about the QAnon conspiracy theory, the criminal complaint said.
A lifestyle coach and essential oils teacher and her boyfriend who supports QAnon have been arrested in connection with the Jan. 6 riots at the Capitol, according to The Daily Beast.
Elizabeth Rose Williams of Kerrville, Texas, and her boyfriend, Bradley Stuart Bennett, were arrested last week and charged with forced entry and disorderly conduct and deliberate entry into a restricted building, The Daily Beast reported.
According to a recent criminal complaint against the couple, some magicians handed the couple over to the FBI after seeing Bennett numerous posts on social media about the Capitol attack, which have since been deleted.
“Attack the Capitol. Pray for all of us,” Bennett wrote in a Facebook post mentioned in the complaint.
‘Magnificent and so wild’
The FBI complaint included several photographs and screenshots from surveillance videos and footage showing the two inside the Capitol during the riots.
“Today was a revolutionary message. We will NOT leave. We will find victory!” Bennett said in a post on social media, according to the complaint.
In other social media posts the FBI quoted, Bennett also said there were “anti-fan instigators” among the protesters, but he saw “no serious violence” and “certainly not from the right.”
Both claims are false. Numerous videos of the riots showed supporters of former President Donald Trump breaking police barriers and throwing objects at Capitol Police officers. There were also numerous deaths linked to the incident – including that of Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, who died on January 7th.
The FBI has also said there is no evidence that left-wing antifa movement played a role in the riots.
In a text message to a friend who later collaborated with the FBI, Bennett described the Jan. 6 riots as “magnificent and so wild,” according to the criminal complaint.
Two of the magicians who handed Bennett said he was a believer in the QAnon conspiracy theory, which claims Trump is secretly fighting with a “deep state” cable of satanic pedophiles and cannibals.
One adviser said they did not know Bennett personally, but became aware of him when they “researched people related to QAnon”. The announcer added that they were “interested in Bennett” because his posts on QAnon were “more militant than the others”.
Another suggester, who identified himself as a friend of Bennett in childhood, said Bennett “often posts about QAnon conspiracy theories on his Facebook page and his Parler account.”

Meanwhile, The Daily Beast revealed personal details about Williams life through her Instagram, which has since been posted privately as well as on her personal page.
On her personal page, Williams describes herself as a “lifestyle” coach, saying it is “her passion to help individuals … live up to their highest potential”.
She also boasts 12 years of experience as a “natural health trainer” who sells essential oils for healing purposes, despite only questionable science on their effectiveness.
Williams website says it specifically sells Young Living essential oils to its customers, a multi-level marketing company that Insider discovered in an investigation last year was deceiving its customers with false claims about essential oils that were in able to cure cancer and coronavirus.
Insider Nicole Einbinder has reported on how the company’s founder, Gary Young, was convicted of illegally appearing as a health practitioner.
Both Williams and Bennett have been released on bail, The Daily Beast reported.
