A new report from the Southern Poverty Law Center links people charged with the murders of almost 100 people to a single far-right website, according to the Guardian.

The report, released Thursday, calls Stormfront.org the “largest hate site in the world” and “a magnet and breeding ground for the deadly and deranged,” the Guardian says. Since becoming one of the first online hate sites in 1995, some of its registered users have been linked to major killings, the Guardian says.

The report (pdf), initially scheduled to be released later this spring, was released a month early after fatal shootings on April 13 in a suburb of Kansas City, Kan. Frazier Glenn Miller, also known as Frazier Glenn Cross, has been accused of killing three people at Jewish centers last weekend.

Stormfront, a white nationalist Web forum, reportedly advocates for values of the “embattled white minority,” and its users have included Anders Behring Breivik, who killed 77 people in a 2011 massacre in Norway, and Wade Michael Page, who fatally shot six people at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin in 2012, according to the Guardian.

 “We know that the people who are going to commit the kinds of crimes, like the kinds of crimes Miller committed last weekend, this is where they live,” said Heidi Beirich, author of the SPLC report and a director at the organization’s Intelligence Project, according to the Guardian.
