Reportedly mild mannered and well liked college student, Austin Harrouff, became agitated while out for dinner with friends at Duffy’s Sports Grill and took off on foot. He then wandered into an upscale neighborhood 15 to 30 minutes away and randomly attacked a couple who were relaxing in their garage. 19 year old Harouff allegedly stabbed and bludgeoned the couple with weapons of opportunity from the couple’s own garage. The victims were identified as 59-year-old John Joseph Stevens III and 53-year-old Michelle Karen Mishcon.
Hero neighbor, Jeff Fisher, tried to intervene as Harrouff attacked the male victim in the driveway and received several stab wounds for his efforts. Despite serious injuries to his back and head, Fisher was able to escape and call 911 at about 9:20 pm (call recording below). Fisher was lifeflighted to the hospital where he underwent surgery and is expected to recover.
When police arrived the suspect was found “growling, grunting and making animal noises” chewing the face off of the male victim. Deputies used stun guns to no avail as the attacker apparently felt no pain. It took several deputies and a K9 to pull the “abnormally strong” Harrouff off of the victim.
Based on the apparent randomness of the attack and the bizarre behavior of the attacker police suspect that he may have been under the influence of drugs, possibly Bath Salts or Flakka. The suspect is originally from Riviera beach and was studying “Pre-exercise science” at the University. Perhaps he was experimenting with some supplements and got some bad stuff. It can take weeks for lab results.
The suspect is currently being held under guard at St. Mary’s Medical Center where he is in stable condition though he was previously reported in grave condition. Police say that he suffered intestinal damage possibly due to taking some type of drug. He is scheduled for surgery to his hand.
Recent reports have Harrouff telling police “You’re not gonna find any drugs in my blood.”. A neighbor reported Harrouff’s behavior as odd in the weeks preceding the attack including discharging a handgun (in Harrouff’s back yard) and shooting and killing a bird in the neighbors yard. The day of the double murder the suspect was seen fighting with his father before driving off.

Authorities report a passenger became unruly mid flight from Lisbon, Portugal to Dublin, Ireland. The 24 year old Brazilian man bit another passenger and had to be restrained. The attacker then went into convulsions and lapsed into unconsciousness. Despite efforts to revive him by a doctor and nurse on board the man died. The flight was diverted to Cork, Ireland where the bite victim was taken to the hospital.
“The noise he was making was like something that I’d never heard before and wouldn’t like to hear again,” a witness told the Cork radio station 96FM. “It was like a deep anguish, that is the best way I can describe it. It was very, very troubled.”
A 44 year old Portuguese woman who was traveling with the assailant was arrested after Cork police discovered about 5 pounds of suspected amphetamine powder in her suitcase.
Jerimiah Hartline of Tennessee says he was fleeing the undead when he stole a big rig truck while the driver was out at a truck scale in Rainbow, CA about 10 miles southwest of Temecula. According to Hartline he was swerving the truck side to side as he flew down the highway in an attempt to shake off the zombies clinging to the side of the truck. Hartline collided with several vehicles, injuring 8 people before overturning the truck and spilling it’s load of strawberries across Interstate 15 closing 4 lanes. This poor guy could get 5 years just for trying to get away from a horde of undead. It’s not known if he was under the influence of anything at the time of the wreck. Perhaps HE was the zombie.
The Department of Homeland Security decided that training for the Zombie Apocalypse is a valid expenditure of your tax dollars. Sounds fun but we didn’t get invited. Do you think we could ask for our money back?
A 67-year-old man attacked a 28 year old teacher biting him several times in an attack that lasted about 30 seconds. Bystanders were too busy filming and gawking to try to stop the violence. Neither man was seriously injured and were taken into custody by police at the next stop where they made peace and both agreed to pay their own medical expenses. Personally we think the old man should have paid for that plate of sumyung gai. I guess they dine and ditch in China too. Video below. Warning: Graphic Content.

According to CBS San Francisco, Vallejo Police responded to the 2500 block of Alameda Drive due to calls reporting two naked men running down the street and breaking windows out of parked cars. When police arrived a naked man, later identified as Jason Jessie, ran back into the house he shared with his partner Jeremiah Moore. Moore emerged from the house which was purportedly filling with smoke and allegedly threatened officers with a rifle. Moore was shot and later died at an area hospital. Preliminary investigations lead police to suspect that a powerful hallucinogenic possibly bathsalts, were involved, although no specific drug has been positively identified yet.
Jason Jessie, according to a neighbor practices Wicca and may have stopped taking his schizophrenia medication. Police followed a blood trail through the couple’s home to find three pet birds beheaded in the back yard. It’s worth noting however that modern Wicca is not generally associated with animal sacrifice.
