Matthew Daniel Temael, who uses the alias and trans name “Dandelion,” was arrested in September over the March murder of a man in Hawthorne, Putnam County, Fla. The 23-year-old Minnesota native is accused of stabbing Louis Stackhouse to death and then setting his mobile home on fire before going on the run with the victim’s vehicle. Temael was found driving the stolen 2008 Saturn Sky in Tampa during a traffic stop. Temael attempted to flee but was caught.

The website of extremist antifa-linked group, Anarchist Federation, put out a fundraising notice on Nov. 19 about Temael, who uses “she/her” pronouns.
“Dandelion is a transfemme Palauan youth anarchist incarcerated in Florida,” reads the post. “We aim to free her and help support her needs while she is inside.”
Temael was indicted by a Putnam County grand jury on charges of first-degree homicide, first-degree arson, burglary and vehicle theft. Because a judge denied Temael bond, the far-left activists say funds raised for their comrade will go to “maintaining inside contact, software, or other materials,” as well as support for other “marginalized relatives in captivity with her.” Toward the end of the campaign, it says the money will also go to the unnamed people running the campaign.
It is unknown when Temael relocated to Florida but she is originally from Brooklyn Park, Minn.—near Minneapolis—and has a history of militant far-left activism there. In July 2021, Temael was involved in a direct action in Pennington County, Minn. where she climbed on an excavator and locked herself there. Temael was charged with a felony and misdemeanor trespass on critical infrastructure. Temael’s LinkedIn says she was a student at Augsburg University in Minneapolis until 2021 studying “Youth Studies.”
Far-left activists in the U.S. have long supported and advocated for comrades accused of and convicted of serious violent crimes. Adherents of the “prison abolition” ideology believe there should never be prison time for comrades, no matter the nature of the crime. Antifa members and far-left allies in Portland, Ore. fundraised and covered the $2.1 million state bond for Malik Fard Muhammad in 2021, who was later convicted of multiple counts of attempted murder. In February this year, Oakland prison abolitionist Jennifer Angel was dragged to her death during a violent robbery. Her family and friends asked prosecutors not to jail her accused assailant(s), who are black.
