STILLWATER, Okla. – Officials with the Oklahoma State Medical Examiner’s Office have released their findings related to the brutal murder of a Stillwater teenager.

On Wednesday afternoon, officers say they received a 911 call from 21-year-old Isaiah Zoar Marin, saying he had just killed someone.

Officers found him walking along State Highway 51 in western Stillwater, covered in blood and carrying a knife.

Court records show that after police approached Marin, he said, “I hacked them to death with a machete.”

Police investigators found the body of 19-year-old Jacob Crockett inside a Stillwater apartment.

Marin’s brother, Samuel Marin, told police he and Isaiah were playing a card game and the victim was in the room with them.

The report says Samuel stated Isaiah had been watching YouTube videos related to his Christian beliefs.

During the card game, the affidavit claims Isaiah picked up a large black sword and began swinging it.

Samuel stated he heard a noise “described as the sound of someone getting stabbed. He stated he looked up and saw Jacob stand up and blood gushing from his chest.”

On Monday, the medical examiner released information related to Crockett’s cause of death.

According to the medical examiner, Crockett’s cause of death is “subtotal decapitation due to multiple sharp force injuries.”

The manner of death has been ruled a homicide.

At this point, the motive for the murder is still unclear.

However, Dickerson said Marin admitted to fantasizing about killing “four or five” people.

Samuel Marin said Isaiah told him he “would explain why he killed Jacob from letters he would write while he was in prison.”
