WTF News: Man Kills His Son, Tells Police Teen Was a Demon Sent to Eat Him

There are no words for this one.

Police say a Phoenix man confessed to axing his 13-year-old son to death, reports AP. Gary Sherrill, 51, was arrested on New Year’s Eve and booked on a first-degree murder charge.

Sherrill’s ex-wife called police after he didn’t return their child, whom he picked up a day earlier. His mother began to panic after she hadn’t been able to reach them. Police entered Sherrill’s home and found the boy dead, with stab wounds and lacerations over several parts of his body.

Authorities say Sherrill told police he believed his son was a demon that was going to eat him.

    Seems like we keep turning a blind eye to the mental illness issue we have in this country which is only exacerbated by our drug culture.


    when are we going to start paying attention to mental illness?

      After something like this happens then we talk about for a few days then don’t bring it back up until another tragedy happens.

        It’s like nobody cares until something hits home for them. This is a serious issue and needs to be addressed not after a tragedy but before.


        REAL TALK

      Not until most people stop believing everything is either god’s will or illuminati conspiracy.

      When that happens, that’s when we’ll finally start paying attention to the real world.. but that will never happen, it’s easier to think some higher power controls it all then face the fact that we’re all just humans and we could all snap.
