Just imagine you’re pulling out of your driveway, going about your typical Saturday 8pm happenings in Massapequa Park, L.I., when suddenly a satanic menace dressed in all black, his face covered with a white mask adorned with chains, jumps onto your windshield wielding a large knife…
NY Daily News: “A Long Island cop was shot in the face and killed by an MTA officer after a knife-wielding, self-proclaimed Satanist lunged at police and was gunned down in his home Saturday, sources said.”
Brian Mullins, a 12-year-old eyewitness, recounted to police that DiGeronimo stared at him, “murderous-looking eyes” that were “staring into his soul” as he freakishly paraded down the streets of his neighborhood, knife in hand.
Police, including an MTA office that lived nearby, corned DiGeronimo in a rear bedroom of his home after neighbors called police. Instead of dropping his weapon, Anthony lunged at police, resulting in officers executing the disturbed Satanist in the bedroom.
That’s when the real tragedy began.
“After the shooting, a Nassau County special operations cop stepped into the home. An MTA officer, standing near the door, saw the gun and shot the cop in the face.”
The officer died soon after at Nassau County University Center.
Neighbors and friends lamented after DiGeronimo’s death that they ‘weren’t surprised’ and in some cases, friends even ‘knew he had weapons’.
DiGeronimo also noted on his blog that he wasn’t just some ‘small-time occultist.’
We can’t help but agree with him there; the madness he created, was the work of a real beast, the aspiration of a man deluded that he was some kind of devil, the devil he ended up becoming in real life…
