Isaiah Zoar Marin, 21 a deeply religious Christian college student from Stillwater, Oklahoma has decapitated the son of a state trooper with a sword because he practiced witchcraft. The decapitation would lead to Marin being charged with first degree murder of 19-year-old Jacob Andrew Crockett.
At the time of the incident, the two friends had been playing with Marin’s brother, when Marin removed a ‘large black sword‘ from its sheath and began swinging it around told court reports obtained by the UK’s dailymail.
‘I would never cut you, bro,’ Marin assured his brother when asked to be careful.
Moments later, the brother told police, he heard ‘the sound of someone getting stabbed.’
Looking up the brother saw blood gushing out of Crockett’s chest.
Crockett, the son of an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper, suffered several stab wounds and had his head ‘mostly severed’ from his body. Attending medics would find the boy lying in a pool of blood.
Running from the scene, sword in hands Isaiah Marin called cops from a restaurant parking lot.
‘I murdered someone,’ he told the dispatcher, according to the court records. ‘I hacked them to death with a machete.’
He then began ‘rambling’ about sacrificing and magic.
Police found him fleeing down the street, leaving behind a trail of blood, the sword still in his hands.
A student at Northern Oklahoma College, Marin was described as a ‘heavy drug user’ and ‘religious zealot,’ court records show.
He had been watching YouTube videos ‘related to his Christian beliefs and the Book of Matthew’ just hours earlier reports tulsaworld.
Marin and Crockett had sparred in the past because the victim had been practicing witchcraft, which Marin saw as contrary to his ‘strong‘ religious beliefs.
A Facebook page titled “RIP Jacob Crockett” was created early Thursday and includes several photos of him with his heavy metal band and posts from friends, many of which called him an “amazing” person and good friend.
In custody and unable to afford an attorney, Marin has since been sequestrated to appear in court December 1.
