GRANTS, N.M. – A 23-year-old man is behind bars after allegedly beating one of his friends to death after binge-watching “The Walking Dead.”
Perry told authorities that he believed Paquin was turning into a zombie and was about to bite him.
Officers say Perry beat Paquin until he was unconscious. At that point, they claim he hit Paquin with a microwave and a guitar before stabbing him with a knife.
“In my 13 years of doing this, that was the most brutal scene I have ever seen,” said Moses Marquez, the spokesperson for the Grants Police Department. “There are some things in this case I don’t think we’ll ever know, like when the microwave was used, when the guitar was used and when the knives came into play.”
Perry told investigators that they were drinking a lot of alcohol prior to the attack.
