Slain Ivy League student Blaze Bernstein's alleged killer had ties to a violent Neo Nazi Group.

Prosecutors claim that Samuel Woodward stabbed the openly gay 19-year-old to death earlier this month in California.

And now it is alleged that Woodward is an active member of a neo-Nazi group.

Social media posts made by Woodward depicting neo-Nazi ideas surfaced after UPENN State student Bernstein's death.

Now new reports have surfaced that people close to Woodward have revealed he was active in a neo-Nazi organization called Atomwaffen Division.

The name translates to 'Nuclear Weapons Division'.

Bernstein, who prosecutors say was stabbed more than 20 times by Woodward and then buried in a shallow grave, was Jewish.

Woodward told investigators that the student tried to kiss him in Borrego park, where Bernstein was later found dead, the pair went to high school together.

Tragically, Bernstein's mother Jeanne Pepper Bernstein revealed that she always feared for her son's safety.

She said: "I'm concerned about the fact that he is Jewish. I'm concerned with the fact that he is gay or the fact that he is small."

Prosecutors are now looking into the possibility that the murder was a hate crime.
