Green, a 2019 college graduate of Christopher Newport University, wrote several posts on his now-pulled Facebook account detailing his personal struggles amid the COVID-19 pandemic, The New York Times reported.

Facebook's decision comes after the second attack on the Capitol this year.

In a separate Facebook post, Green claimed that "Satan's rule over us is up". I am currently now unemployed after I left my job partly due to afflictions, but ultimately, in search of a spiritual journey."Despite the lack of a job, he posted an image of a certificate that said he'd donated $1,085 to the Nation of Islam as a "Saviours' Day 2021" gift.Green's brother, Brendan, told the Post that Noah had become paranoid in 2019 and accused football teammates of drugging him with Xanax".

Just two hours before what Fox News reported was a "lone wolf" attack, the suspect allegedly posted a video on his Instagram account with a caption that said: "The US government is the #1 enemy of Black people!" "He served with the city police for about two decades and was named the department's Officer of the Year in 2012 for solving a 25-year-old murder case".

Brendan did not elaborate about what had exactly happened with his brother that night, but added that he earlier suffered from hallucinations, heart palpitations, headaches, and suicidal thoughts. "You inspired me a lot", the text reportedly read.
