Suspect found biting man's face off at chaotic Florida murder scene
MARTIN COUNTY, Fla. -- Sheriff's deputies were called to Kokomo Lane in Martin County, Florida, on Monday evening because a neighbor told 911 he'd been stabbed trying to break up a fight.
CBS Tampa affiliate WPEC reports that when the first deputy arrived, the sheriff said she had found a man on top of another one in a driveway, biting his face.
The sheriff said the suspect was removing the victim's flesh with his teeth. Eventually, multiple deputies and a K-9 pounced, trying to remove the suspect from the prone man on the ground. They used a stun gun, but only after use of great force from every law enforcement officer available could they remove him.
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. His wife was found dead as well inside the garage of their home.
The age and identity of the victims and suspect has not been provided. The sheriff would only say the suspect and the deceased couple knew each other.
The Good Samaritan who called 911 and tried to rescue his neighbor suffered substantial injuries, WPEC reports. He was airlifted to St. Mary's Hospital where he underwent emergency surgery. His condition is not known at this time.
The suspect was also taken to St. Mary's, where he is undergoing treatment. His motive is not known at this time.
"When we see a case like this, when someone is biting off pieces of somebody's face, could it be flakka, the answer is it absolutely could be flakka case, we don't know," Martin County Sheriff William Snyder said, according to CBS Miami.
What say you Capt?
seems that a large amount of drug abuse happens where people, e.g. laborers, have inadequate access to health care and they have to deal with pain that is not going to go away.
It's easy for most of the country to drift down to Florida to escape the oppressive cold weather. Especially all those unsophisticated people of the southern states.
Florida is one of those 50-50 red-blue states politically because there are also the successful and sophisticated people that came to enjoy luxury, warm climate, the water and many places to escape the high prices of living in the bigger urban centers of the country.
The high prices of west coast housing, the droughts, the smog, the great distance over the rocky mountains and the deserts all make an effective barrier that keeps people IMHO from venturing quite so far away from their place of origin. Then there is the sprawl of people from San Diego to Santa Barbara and inland to San Bernardino that probably looks scary too.
Whereas people move up and down the entire west coast quite a bit for various reasons.
Why is it always Florida?
When they were done filming Day of the Living Dead, the studio was too cheap to remove all the zombies.
FACE! It's what's for dinner in Florida!
