MiamiHerald Something made a young man go mad. He viciously stabbed a married couple twice his age, plus a neighbor who tried to intervene, deputies said. They found him crouched over the bleeding body of the man, biting chunks of his face off. Martin County Sheriff William Snyder told reporters his deputies found the suspect late Monday in the driveway of a Tequesta home. Officers tried to pull the suspect off the victim to no avail. “They used as much force as they physically were able to,” he said. Even a police dog couldn’t get the man to release his victim. Finally, cops wrenched the suspect off the dead man. Inside the home they found his wife, also stabbed to death. The reason for the argument, or its fatal turn, is still unclear, as is the exact nature of the relationship between the victims and the suspect. “They clearly knew each other,” Snyder said. The neighbor who called 911 rushed to help the victim, Snyder said, but he was stabbed as well. He underwent surgery early Tuesday morning. The suspect, who originally gave police a fake name, is being treated in a hospital in Palm Beach County. The gory details mirror the infamous Miami face-eater case, a random and horrific attack on a homeless man that made international news and spawned countless jokes about zombies and bath salts. Contrary to popular belief, Rudy Eugene, the “causeway face attacker” only had marijuana in his system. And unlike the Tequesta couple, his victim lived. Snyder told reporters he can’t be sure if Moore was on any drugs until the toxicology report comes back, but said he “wouldn’t be surprised” if Flakka was involved. Flakka, which has been linked to many drug overdoses and bizarre behavior, is a psychoactive stimulant technically known as alpha-PVP. Deputies are waiting on a judge to OK a search warrant before they conduct an in-depth, forensic search of the home. Deputies are looking for an associate of the suspect, Ivy Stevens. Snyder said she might be “an ex-girlfriend or something.” “I think once we find the missing female… things will start to clear up,” he said.
We joke around a lot here at SportSmasher.com about how Fucking Florida is America’s most fucked up state, and all of the bizarre news stories that come out of Florida on a daily basis, buts it’s stories like this which make you wonder seriously what the hell is going on in Florida. A Florida man murdered a couple in cold blood, stabbed another neighbor who tried to intervene, and when police arrived they found that the murderer was on top of one of his victims chewing the skin off of the dead man’s face in a scene resembling a zombie movie. Even crazier, this is the second time in recent memory that a person tried to eat the face of their victim in Florida, and in each case a drug that is now prevalent in Florida called “Flakka” has been blamed. On the list of reasons to never visit Florida, which grows every day, you can add drug addled zombies may eat your face off.
UPDATE: The murderer/zombie has been identified as 19-year-old Florida State University student Austin Harnoff (pictured below, left). His victims were 59-year-old John Stevens III and his wife 53-year-old Michelle Mishcon (both pictured below, right), who were killed in their home, in an affluent Palm Beach County neighborhood. Austin Harnoff was making animal noises while apprehended, investigators believe that he was high on bath salts or “Flakka” when he committed these horrific crimes, and confirmed that Harnoff had no previous relationship with his victims.
