One year later, Beaver Dam explosion

BEAVER DAM (WKOW) — Tuesday marks one year since a Beaver Dam man blew up his apartment, killing himself and displacing dozens of people who lived there.

Benjamin Morrow, a 28-year-old chemist, made triacetone triperoxide or “Mother of Satan” bombs, the kind terrorists use. The chemicals exploded in his apartment.

The contaminated building on Knaup Drive was burned down days later to prevent further explosions.

Search warrants show police discovered masks “white supremacist materials” and guns in Morrow’s destroyed apartment.

Investigators closed the case because there were no other suspects or ongoing threats.
