Kolby Parker Lake County, Florida man admits killing his grandfather, cutting off his ears. Told detectives it was time for him to go.
A Florida man was observed taking out a pair of severed human ears out of his pant pockets while being questioned in his grandfather’s murder.
Kolby Parker, 30, was accused of fatally stabbing his 77-year-old grandad Ronald Wells, Sr., on Saturday evening inside the Lake County home they shared, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
Parker initially told investigators that he acted in self-defense, saying the older man attacked him with a knife during a fight the two had while smoking marijuana.
Wells’ body was found on the front porch with multiple stab wounds.
It was while being questioned, Parker allegedly took his grandfather’s ears out of his pants — and then lunged at a deputy, while trying to grab his gun and taser.
‘it was his time to go,’
Police said Parker eventually confessed that he wanted his grandfather to be with his deceased grandmother and ‘it was his time to go,’ according to an arrest affidavit obtained by the Sentinel.
He allegedly hit Wells multiple times in the head with a baseball bat before repeatedly stabbing him with a butcher knife and cutting off his ears, cops said.
Parker also allegedly punched, kicked or head-butted three deputies as they attempted to arrest him, according to the affidavit.
But there’s more.
Investigators said they also found an apron in Parker’s bedroom that had the phrase ‘The Family Butcher’ printed on it and plastic, bloody human ears attached to it.
Parker was charged with second-degree murder, battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting with violence. He was being held in Lake County jail without bond.
