Leroy Smith III is a troubled young man. His father knew that he was troubled, but he did not know the depths of his son’s depravity or mental defect. The younger smith was evicted from his previous living arrangement and the landlord had acquired a restraining order against him. One of the reasons he was evicted was that he set his guitar and amp on fire because they were emitting ‘evil music’. His mother and stepfather expelled him from their house for bad behavior. His father, however, wanted to help his son and let him stay at his residence at the beginning of this year. That was the beginning of the end. Leroy Smith III killed his father using multiple knives. In his own words he “filleted” his father like a fish. He dismembered the body and set the body parts in sixteen separate trash bags. He says he murdered his father for the years of sexual assault he endured. But this is also a man who refers to himself as God. After being lead from the courthouse, he extolled:
“I am the Lord, the father of life” and asked them to follow him on Twitter.
He also makes reference to investigators that the FBI instructed him to record the murder and upload the video to YouTube and that in addition to being God, he is in fact a member of the Hell’s Angels. He also goes under the bizarre monniker, Commander Koon Kringle. Insane, dubious, and oxymoronic. For more insanity, you can check the Commander’s Facebook page.
Needless to say the court has ordered a psychiatric evaluation.
My condolences to the family to have endure this tragedy.
