Killer Says a Demon Named Daniel Was Chasing Him

Do you remember the story from last summer where a Florida State student came upon a couple in their garage and killed them with a machete?

It was strange in that the couple he killed were totally random.

It was also strange because when police showed up the killer seemed to be eating the face of the man he had killed and it took super-human force to get him off and restrained.

Today we are learning that the killer didn't have drugs in his system but insists he was running from a terrifying demon named Daniel.

STUART, Fla. (AP) — A Florida college student accused of randomly killing a couple in their garage and chewing on the dead man's face told television psychologist Phil McGraw he was fleeing a demon-like figure named Daniel and only had a vague recollection of the slayings.

In a 22-minute interview released Tuesday by prosecutors, Austin Harrouff said he lost his wits as he walked back to his father's home after storming out of a restaurant where they had an argument.
McGraw asked about "the devil talking to you," and Harrouff went on to describe a "dark figure" he called Daniel.
"I got scared out of my mind," Harrouff told McGraw, who interviewed him by computer when the former high school wrestler and football player was still hospitalized last fall.
Harrouff, 20, was arrested upon release from the hospital for the Aug. 15 deaths of John Stevens, a 59-year-old landscaper, and his wife, Michelle Mishcon, 53. Both had been beaten and stabbed. He could face the death penalty if convicted of murder.
Harrouff, a bodybuilder who majored in exercise science at Florida State University, said he stripped off most of his clothes as he tried to run away from Daniel. McGraw asked what he was thinking.
"I just need to find someone to help me, to figure out where I am," said Harrouff, speaking in a steady, even voice as his father, dentist Wade Harrouff, stood just off camera. "I don't even remember what I said to myself. I just remember being afraid, scared."
He said he doesn't remember how he came face-to-face with Mishcon in the couple's garage. He said she screamed, and "then it's a blur."
"I don't remember what she said — I just remember being yelled at," Harrouff said. He said he grabbed a machete he found in their garage, but doesn't remember why he killed her and her husband.
"It's like it happened but I wasn't aware of it at the time," Harrouff said, crying. "I don't know, I don't know. If I knew, I would tell you."

Of course most of the world would listen to this story and say "The dude is clearly mentally ill!  He is schizo!!"

For Bible readers, we read this story and wonder if there wasn't an actual demon, calling himself Daniel, possessing this student and forcing him to commit this heinous crime...for which he may get the death penalty.  Maybe he was involved in some behavior that summoned this evil presence?

We shouldn't be surprised when we hear people explaining that "the voices" or "the demons" or "the shadow people" told them to do something....because the days are evil.

Ephesians 5:16
making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.
