This story is completely nuts…
Jarrod Wyatt, a 26-year-old Mixed Martial Arts fighter is currently on trial for murdering his friend, 21-year-old Taylor Powell, removing his face and tongue, as well as his heart which he also cooked in a wood stove. Details under the hood
As you can probably imagine, yes drugs were involved. Powell and Wyatt drank “mushroom tea” along with Wyatt’s ex-girlfriend Billy Jo Bailey and another friend, Justin Davis:
According to the Times-Standard, prosecutors claim the pair took mushrooms along with two other friends in late March. The paper reports that witnesses say Powell and Wyatt “became preoccupied with the idea that a tidal wave was coming, that the end of the world was upon them and that a struggle between God and the devil was taking place.”
When police arrived, they found Wyatt naked and covered in dried blood. According to an officer at the scene, Wyatt admitted to cutting out his victim’s tongue and heart. Powell’s corpse included an 18-inch incision on his chest, and Wyatt allegedly said he cooked the 21-year-old’s heart in a wood stove to “stop the devil.”
Complete. Utter. Insanity.
The moral of the story, boys and girls, is Do Not Drink Mushroom Tea!
Hallucinogens are no joke.
