As a huge fan of The Walking Dead, I’ll admit there have been times where I’ve seen someone walking extremely slow down the street at night and thought, “ZOMBIE!!!!” But then my brain kicks in and I realize it’s probably my 80-year-old neighbor who is trying to recover from his 10th hip surgery.
But 23-year-old Damon Perry is apparently missing the important part of his brain that warns him not to do stupid sh-t. He is currently being held on a murder charge after beating his roommate to death.
Perry and his roommate, Christopher Paquin, had been drinking alcohol and watching The Walking Dead all night. And at some point during this marathon, Paquin acted as if he was going to bite Perry.
Perry found this extremely suspicious, so he decided to take care of him before he turned into an actual zombie. When officers arrived at the scene, Paquin’s body was inside the apartment, and two maintenance workers were detaining Perry, who was allegedly still holding a knife.
Police detective Moses Marquez told reporters the murder was one of the “weirdest and most gruesome” homicides he’s ever heard of. According to the police report, Perry used his feet, hands, a guitar and even a microwave oven during the fatal attack.
A preliminary hearing has been set for November 3.
