This seems like a story right out of Breaking Bad (great show). Last month, the Monsignor Kevin Wallin, 61, was arrested for dealing crystal meth, and his colleagues are trying to explain it away by saying he was on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Sure, that makes sense; You’re competent enough to run a meth dealing business that earns you over a very large income, but you’re a Catholic Priest, so you must have something psychologically wrong which makes you act in such a sinful way.
Wallin, a now suspended Roman Catholic Priest, was arrested on Federal drug charges for “allegedly” having methamphetamine mailed to him from co-conspirators in California and making more than $300,000 in drugs sales from his apartment in Waterbury during the second half of last year. This man of God also bought a small adult video and sex toy shop in North Haven. The shop was called ‘Land of Oz & Dorothy’s Place,’ and was apparently purchased to launder all the money he was making.
One of his friends discussed Wallin’s own drug use and stated he looked like ’a refugee from a concentration camp’.
This man was previously the pastor at St. Augustine Parish in Bridgeport, CT for nine years until he resigned in June 2011, citing health and personal problems. According to some, he began questioning his faith and they feel that’s what led to his current situation. One of the church workers had said that ‘(h)e had become disillusioned with the bureaucracy of the church.’ This worker and many others had mentioned that the priest had also been having sex with men for quite awhile.
Five men were arrested and are charged with one count of conspiracy to distribute 500 grams or more of a substance containing methamphetamine and 50 grams of actual methamphetamine. This crime could get them 10 years to life in prison.
Also charged in the case were Kenneth Devries, 52, of Waterbury; Michael Nelson, 40, of Manchester; Chad McCluskey, 43, of San Clemente, California; and Kristen Laschober, 47, of Laguna Niguel, California. Authorities say McCluskey and Laschober were involved in the shipping of methamphetamine to Wallin.
Okay this story is absolutely insane, but as we all know, there are definitely some crazy ass cannibals out there doing things you couldn’t even imagine. Tyree Lincoln Smith, from Florida, was arrested after allegedly hacking a man from Connecticut to death and then eating the victim’s eye along with some of his brain.
Police in Lynn Haven, Florida, said Wednesday that 35-year-old Tyree Lincoln Smith was arrested Tuesday night on a Connecticut warrant for murder.
In the pice report from Bridgeport, Connecticut, Smith had gone and told his cousin, Nicole Rabb, about the entire incident. As he told her of the horrendous crime he had just committed, he stood covered in blood. While holding an axe, he had told his cousin that he wanted to take a bath.
‘Tyree told [Rabb] the blows to [Angel Gonzalez's] head were so severe that he was able to remove an eye from the man’s head along with pieces of brain matter and a piece of his skull,’ the warrant reads, according to the Hartford Courant.
Apparently, he then decided he must get rid of the body, put it into some bags an brought it to a cemetery where another cousin of his was buried. Here, is where he ate the eyeball and stated that it ’tasted like an oyster’. Rabb waited until authorities discovered the body on the Friday after December 16th, and then contacted the authorities to explain what she knew (which was a whole hell of a lot).
The homeless man has now been identified as Angel Gonzalez.
