West Virginia Man High On Bath Salts Kills Neighbor’s Goat

Mark ThompsonSome of you may recall our previous report on “Taking A Bath” with the bath salts “craze.” Well, they’re at it again. There’s really nothing to add to this story, it kind of sells itself. From the Charlston Gazette:

CHARLESTON, W.Va.— Police say an Alum Creek man high on bath salts killed his neighbor’s pygmy goat and that neighbors found him in his bedroom, dressed in a bra and panties, next to the dead animal, said Lt. Bryan Stover of the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department.

Mark Thompson, 19, of Greenview Road, is charged with animal cruelty after police got a call from a woman who said he stole her goat at about 3:15 a.m. Monday, Stover said.

Thompson allegedly told police he was on bath salts for about three days.

When police entered the house they found fresh blood near the front door of the bedroom and in Thompson’s bedroom to the right of the front door. Inside the bedroom police found the small gray and white goat wearing a pink collar lying dead on the floor, blood coming from its neck, according to the complaint. There was a pornographic magazine photo laying a few feet from the goat, the complaint states.

“We know the animal had at least one stab wound,” said Cpl. Sean Snuffer, a detective with the Sheriff’s Department. “They are also searching for signs of sexual trauma.”

    Looks like maybe he should use those bath salts and take an actual bath. The goat was probably cleaner…

    Some states should be forced to secede, if only there was a way to stop them from infiltrating back into the rest of the country to get their welfare and their government cheese. West Virginia hillbillies will ferment anything for a cheap buzz. If Congress bans bath salts, they’ll just get hopped up on jenkem when they’re assaulting the neighbors’ livestock.
