A teen boy who attacked a couple and chewed on one of his victim’s faces has tested negative for common street drugs.
Austin Harrouff, 19, supposedly told the police they wouldn’t find any drugs in his system after he allegedly killed a couple in Florida couple, attacking the pair with a knife.
Police claim they found a broken vodka bottle at the scene of the crime which they believe Harrouff used as a weapon, and say he chewed the face and abdomen of his victim, John Stevens III.
Harrouff has been accused of murdering Stevens, 59, and wife Michelle Mishcon, 53, at their home in Jupiter, Florida, in what appears to be a random attack.
The count sheriff William Snyder, said:
I have never seen a scene that had this much savagery and this much violence, ever. He was biting the victim in the face area and the abdomen area, and we did recover some remnants of human tissue from his mouth.Advertisement
Both John and Michelle died from their stab wounds and it appears that Michelle was killed first, followed by her husband who Harrouff then mutilated.
When police arrived to arrest Harrouff it took multiple deputies, a taser and a dog to bring him down and he became severely ill and he’s since undergone multiple surgeries.
The sheriff explained that as they brought him into the hospital he said you’re not gonna find any drugs in my blood.
Toxicology reports have indicated that he hadn’t taken common street drugs such as cocaine, methamphetamines, marijuana and opiates.
Although additional tests are being performed by the FBI which will determine whether the teen had taken Flakka, a drug similar to bath salts, before he carried out the killings.
Harrouff’s mother, Mina Harrouff, then contacted the authorities, saying that her son had been acting strangely for days and claiming he had superpowers.
