The police have a baffling case on their hands. A 19 year-old, clean cut, athletic and studious Florida State sophomore had to be subdued by a canine and several police as he was trying to eat the face of a man he had stabbed to death. The man’s wife was also a victim. A neighbor survived the incident with stab wounds and was able to summon the police. Here’s a link to the story: http://cbs12.com/news/local/who-is-austin-harrouff

The mystery to the officers involved here is twofold:  what was the motive for this young man, who had so much to live for, to enter the garage of a pair of strangers and perform such grizzly acts.  They don’t get it. The second mystery is how strong the young man was in shrugging off their stun gun and requiring multiple officers to subdue him.  (Police report says that Harrouff was “abnormally strong,” incoherent and making “animal-like noises.”). They had his body checked for drugs, hoping that some type of substance high would give them insight into this crazy crime scene. There was no trace in his body. And the culprit (can’t really call him a suspect since he was caught in the act) actually told the police that at the site as if he was mocking their efforts. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/face-biting-suspect-austin-harrouff-dared-deputies-to-test-him-for-drugs/

This was not an underprivileged kid who had undergone a traumatic life. His father is a respected dentist. Their relationship seems to have been a good one. Why in the world would a decent kid be making headlines like these? Perhaps the details of this one are more gruesome, but there have been other killings by people who don’t fit the stereotype of an assassin.  Many people mention when asked why they did committed a heinous and senseless crime, “a voice told me to.” Hmmm.  Where could such voices come from? I have a suggestion in this situation.

For those beleaguered and baffled police detectives, perhaps they might look in the Bible at Mark chapter five for a possible explanation of Harrouff’s behavior.  “And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.”

I’m not a psychic, but I’ll make a prediction here. We will be seeing more and more bizarre crimes that make no sense and that will challenge the writers of Abnormal Psychology textbooks. The devil has operated by stealth through the years, cloaking his presence from the general populace. My opinion is that as we approach the end of times, Satan will openly compete for the hearts of mankind. Will defense attorneys soon be using the Flip Wilson (the devil made him do it) defense?   I don’t think so, since they still have the old reliable “insanity plea” as a get out of jail card. However I’m convinced with the continued usage of pharmakeia (drugs), dabbling in the occult, and apparently soon to burst on the scene, after school satanic clubs, the young people of our world will be opening themselves to the demonic realm. Society will suffer as a result, perhaps even to the point where those seeking answers will consider the possibility that there really is a devil, and he is trying to ruin the lives of every human on earth.

Want some more dependable witness than my opinion?  You should.  How about this three part series on the topic?  http://www.wnd.com/2016/07/psychiatrist-goes-demon-hunting-with-exorcists/
