Religious devotion as horrifying insanity. Washington’s KOIN reports:
A father with children in the house who was preparing for “the Rapture” blew up his family’s Labrador Retriever because the devil was inside the dog, court documents showed.
Christopher Dillingham, 45, allegedly attached an explosive device to his dog and detonated it Sunday outside their home.
A slew of 911 calls sent deputies to Dillingham’s home. They found the remains of the dog strewn about the yard and arrested Dillingham on the spot. Dillingham told Skamania County deputies “the world is going to end” because and he was preparing.
He said he believed “the souls of demons” were inside the metal objects in the house, the documents said. His ex-girlfriend, he told the deputies, gave him the dog, named Cabella, and “put the devil in it.”
