Florida man, 23-year-old, was just discovered to be legally. Insane at the time when he out of randomness murdered a married couple outside their home. According to the prosecution psychiatrist.
The Horrifying Murder By A Teenager
This gruesome murder happened some 4-years ago. When a Florida college student named, Austin Harouff murdered the couple Michelle and John Stevens. Moreover, after murdered the couple he performed cannibalism by eating Mr. Stevens’s face.
The prosecution team found that Harrouff believed in the theory of God and demons and was supposedly talking to him. He also had increasing paranoia and other hallucinations just before he murdered the couple.
On the night of the murders, Austin’s mom found him drinking cooking oil mixed with Parmesan cheese, which possibly had hallucinogenic mushrooms. Also, the team stated that since the murders, he’s been diagnosed with the mental disorder “schizophrenia.”
The Teenager Was Found Legally Found Sane
The defense lawyers plan to argue that he should be found “not guilty by reason of insanity” at his murder trial which will be held in May. If he is found “not guilty” by reason of insanity he would be just isolated to a mental hospital for the rest of his life.
When Martin County sheriff’s officials reached the Stevenses’ home north of Palm Beach on the night of August 15, 2016, they discovered a horrific scene, which can be seen in court documents, recordings, and photos.
Michelle Stevens, 53-year-old, just lays mangled and dead. In the garage and Harrouff, then a college-going science major at Florida State University. Was attacking and eating her 59-year-old husband on the driveway.
One of the officers ordered Harrouff to get off at gunpoint while another used an electric stun gun on him, but he wouldn’t let the man go. Officials say they didn’t shoot Harrouff because they feared that might hit John Stevens.
Finally, an official with a dog arrived. And it bit the teenager which enabled the deputies to subdue Harrouff, who previously had no arrest record. Yeah
