MMA Fighter Horrifically Murders Man After Magic Mushroom Trip Goes Bad.

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooDrugsWacky, Tacky & TrueZportzLegal Matters


If this doesn't deter you from taking hallucinogenics, then nothing will.

A mixed martial arts fighter is facing murder charges for cutting another man's heart out of his chest after taking magic mushrooms.

Jarrod Wyatt and fellow MMA fighter Taylor Powell took the psychedelic drugs and apparently had the worst trip of all time when they became convinced that the world was coming to an end.

Wyatt lost it when he began to allegedly see the devil in Powell's face, so he cut an 18-inch hole in his chest, removed his heart, cut out his tongue, skinned his face off, and then cooked various body parts in a wood stove!


Police Sgt. Elwood Lee responded to the March 21 911 call, and said that Wyatt kept telling him that "Satan was in that dude" and he needed to "stop the devil."

He continues:

"At one point, [Wyatt] asked if we were God, or if we were God coming to save him."

Wyatt is currently facing first-degree murder charges, as well as counts of aggravated mayhem and torture. His attorney argues that his client was having a psychotic break and therefore could not control his actions.

This whole story makes us ill and we don't really want to think any further about it, so hopefully this dude will be thrown into jail or a mental institution for life! We don't care how under the influence you are! How could anyone be capable of such horrific brutality??

Think twice before taking mind altering substances, kiddies!

    That's fucked up. Drugs are bad, mkay??

  2. 2

    oh goodness. that is horrific! rip

  3. 3

    "We don't care how under the influence you are! How could anyone be capable of such horrific brutality??"

    Because he was under the influence dipshit. You answered your own stupid question.

  4. 4

    This is not possible from magic mushrooms. However American media is determined to write horror stories about things they know nothing about. Did anyone question if this guy was mixing other drugs in as well? These people often take steroids which are more likely to mess their heads up.

  5. 5

    saw it at another web site today at 9am….perez always tardy to the mother fucking party…just like Travis Gayland is late to the Itunes Chart…o wait he isnt even on the Itunes Chart….hahahahahahahahaha

  6. 6

    way for one bad apple to spoil the bunch. im sorry but i think he was on more than magic mushrooms. he must have overdosed to have flipped out that much. thanks for setting drug laws back another 20 years, a**hole! the war on drugs, especially marijuana and drugs used for shamanic purposes is AWFUL.

    This is..unbelievable. I'm never taking mushrooms. It didn't help reading this against this site's stupid flamboyant background. I accidently laughed… hysterical reaction.

  9. 9

    Blame the Shrewm's…This guy's just royally f"ed up!!!

  10. 10

    I took mushrooms a number of times in college and never got aggressive. Just laughed alot, saw my garbage can pulsing :) , and trails of colored lights.

  11. 11

    He CHOSE to take the drugs. Let me clarify. He CHOSE to take ILLEGAL drugs. He is responsible for the consequences. Besides, no way that was just mushrooms. I'm betting there was PCP involved….or "boat", right Ray J?

  12. 12

    Did this information just come out? Otherwise, why are you reporting on something that happened in March? Regardless, it is sickening. Drugs are BAD.

  13. 13

    This happened a long ass time ago!

    It soulds like he was on acid

  16. 7tizz says – reply to this


    Hallucinogenics & steroids is a helluva combo.

  17. 17

    Sounds like it was the dude that was insane, not the mushrooms that made him insane. Blame the user, not the drug: if you're out of your mind already, there's no reason to be taking hallucinogens.

  18. 18

    way to mix your drugs to "set and example" and ruin it for the rest of us, @$$hole.

  19. 19

    Linds take note ! Drugs kill ! Take note, too, Dina !

  20. 20

    Don't blame the drugs. He looks like a homicidal fuckup anyway, with or without the excuse of being under the influence.

  21. 21

    ….He has such pretty eyes …..

  22. 22

    If there's no pics. It's not true…

  23. 23

    WHY DID YOU FEEL THE NEED TO POST THIS?! I DIDN'T NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THIS!!! (especially after the slasher fest i had last night)

  24. 24

    I agree, this is not possible on just mushrooms alone. Mushrooms are one of the safest drugs out there when used responsibly. Must have taken something else with them or perhaps they were spiked with something he was not aware of.

  25. 25

    whoa there …he was on something other than just mushrooms!!! mushrooms are so much fun!!

  26. 26

    The story "makes you ill" yet you file it under Icky Icky Poo and Wacky, Tacky and True…please stop pretending to care about anyone or anything you disingenuous clown. On another note, please, Please, PLEASE sell your site to Nik Richie and Zack Taylor!!! The hope being that they will either get rid of it completely or at least up the standards that you have long since turned your back on (ie. proof reading, coming up with original posts, actually reading the comments of your readers, etc…). This 'blog' has deteriorated to the point where the most interesting aspect of it is the readers themselves and their comments.

  27. 27

    not mushrooms. steriods & a weak fucking mind. one less 'roid raging fuck that we have to have in our society. make that two.

  28. 28

    Re: My black circumcised baby! – Agreed!!!Everyone is responsible for what goes in his/her body.

  29. 29

    This is not because of mushrooms. Mushrooms on a healthy mind do not have dangers even near this. This man's mind was disturbed before he took them, mushrooms just enhanced it a bit. This is horrible. RIP.

    Popular culture really needs to be truthfully informed about drugs and you should stop perpetuating untruths and myths the government tries to tell you about such substances.

  30. 30

    That happened in my town.Smith River Caili. its really horrible story.
    A lot people I know, were him.
    He was a normal guy, who had a good career in boxing.
    look what drugs do to people.
    so messed up.

  31. 31

    Really? Mushrooms? Mushrooms don't give you intense hallucinations like that, Mario. They may make you "see" things, but not like that.
    Re: Lucrecia – I agree… maybe that could happen if the guy was already completely mentally ill and took some incredibly strong acid. Drugs alone don't do that.

  32. 32

    People don't do that kind of shit just because they take mushrooms. Early twenties is usually when the crazy starts to leak out. Hallucinogens can bring out the crazy hard core. Psychotic break baby! Don't blame the shrooms. Unfortunately you can't really 'blame' the dude either. But there is something sinister or retarded (i lean towards the retarded for anyone who has a mohawk and is a mma fighter) lurking in you if you can cut out someones heart even if you are experiencing a full psychotic break.

  33. 33

    This is one of the most horrifying things I have ever heard of. If this doesn't make people STOP USING DRUGS I do not know what will. There was a rave in the SF Bay Area over the weekend and at least 10 young people are hospitalized in critical condition with life-threatening issues as a result of bad "molly" (extra pure Ecstasy) - horrible internal bleeding, organ failure. GET IT PEOPLE ? DRUGS = BAD !!!

  34. 34

    Thats sick. But this guy must have been a ticking time bomb. Theres no way mushrooms could make you react that way.
    I'm sure steroids played a huge part.
    And a fucked up mind doesn't help.

  35. 35

    mushrooms alone do not make you evil and malicious. How many times have we heard of wrestlers and people in other various sports who murder and are violent. Steroids anyone…anyone!? On top of this you have to be fucked up in the head before hand to ever be able to do something like this.

  36. 36

    Holy cowz!!!!! That is messed up! :o

  37. 37

    Crazy! But he would get 1st degree. 2ed or 3rd.

  39. 39

    It's really awesome that Billy Jo has a national forum to spread her lies. Taylor was a sweet kid who didn't fight. He looked up to this psycho and wanted to help him train. Jarrod Wyatt didn't need drugs to help him behave with violence and something like this was just a matter of time. It's disgusting that, in an effort to save his filthy client, Fallman has chosen to slander the name of a kid who was still alive while his heart was removed. There is no excuse for that.

  40. 40

    drugs don't make people kill.

  41. 41

    Ok. They were either taking something else along with the shrooms or it must have been a shet-ton of Mushrooms. Shrooms are not bad. Idiots on Shrooms are bad…

  42. 42

    this turned up on rotten about a week ago. laaaaate.

  43. 43

    what do i have to sayyy…. hmmm old news heard it last weeeek

  44. 44

    mushrooms my ass…PCP maybe.

  45. 45

    read it like 5 days ago

    During their religious sacrifices, delirious Aztec priests would cut open the chest of their victims and remove the still beating heart and consume part of it (as part of the ritual). Which makes me think that what these guys were taking was probably meth laced with peyote.

  47. 47

    "apparently had the worst trip of all time when they became convinced that the world was coming to an end. Wyatt lost it when he began to allegedly see the devil in Powell's face"

    "At one point, [Wyatt] asked if we were God, or if we were God coming to save him."

    sounds more like a religious problem than a drug incident. trying to kill "the devil" and looking for "god." imagine if in his mind the incident hadnt been prefaced with religion. his friends face would have maybe looked unfamiliar and maybe even frightening but as his mind saw "the devil" and something hes been taught as "evil," he had to kill it. and then was hoping to be saved by "god" - or - the cops. which, if youve ever attempted to use youre given rights, are far from anything like god in every way except for their love of power. just sayin'…

    butttt of course the media will portray what it wants. i mean if youve heard anything about the MK Ultra experiments (testing different hallucinogenics on people to test their mental limits) the CIA used to conduct you'd wonder why they would deliberately try to create a situation similar as the one described in the article for "research." you wont hear about that on this site or anywhere else for that matter though.

  48. 48

    i love how these idiots who have never touched drugs in their life are telling others that drugs are bad. shut up, you have no credibility because you've never tried them. hallucinogens of all things are the least harmful…. but you wouldn't know that because your pea brain categorizes ALL drugs in the same category based on what you learned years ago in DARE. lol….

  49. 49

    Touche wenchtits, i think its horrible but those mind altering drugs are exactly that. its ashame someone died but its still horrible that he could face life in prison because of a bad trip.

  50. 50

    Sick and messed up. How do people know so much about drugs on this site?

  51. 51

    well, i have heard guys usually get bad trips from shrooms.
    sounds fucking creepy.
    i still wanna try shrooms though. just..not by myself. need to have a babysitter.

    Re: Wenchtits – lmao!!!!
    Re: My black circumcised baby! – agreed. but then again, he was an MMA fighter, an already aggressive guy. so he just went overboard.

  52. 52

    Here's America for you. A guy gets fucking slaughtered and all anyone has to say is, "Way to give drugs a bad name! Drugs are good!" What's sicker than this murder is all of you, to be honest.

  53. 53

    This guy hasn't even fought in mma he's just some crazy fuck, the other guy couldn't find a record for him either. What a shitty way to go.

  54. 54

    Lol, imagine you were the cop and that happened to be your shift? Some guy walks up to you, "Are you God??? Are you here to save me???" I can just picture the reaction … (slaps forehead and cuffs him).

  55. 55

    No different than if he got drunk and swirved, then killed a family. He should be found guilty of capital murder.

  56. 56

    Nice drug propaganda Perez. You'd think you would have more of an idea…. Condolances to the family of the deceased, such a horrible way to die. But Im soooo sick of this anti-drug crap the govts put on us. Its absolute bullshit and I dont really expect it from a fucking gossip column.

  57. 57

    He could control his actions when he decided to take the mushrooms.
    Jail is his next stop!

  58. 58

    OMG dude thats so horrific dude omg

  59. 59

    @Lucrecia: No, the guy did not admit to doing any drug other than the 'shrooms, though I'm sure there were plenty of other drugs mixed. There's also a female witness who didn't come forward until recently =/ all the evidence provided by the defendant and the witness are clouded in a drug haze, as the paper states. It's a horrific thing… Powell was and still is very much loved by many people in the community. I didn't know him personally, but I am from the city this story came from.

  60. 60

    Mushrooms have a different effect on everybody. Doesn't mean this guy should ever see the light of day again, but I know of some people who have had some seriously bad trips-one killed himself while on shrooms. To relate shrooms to weed is ignorant-weed is not a hallucinagin. And there's also been cases of some people who know a lot about religion (christianity I've heard in these cases) that claim to have bad trips where they have felt associated with satan. Crazy shit…make sure you get the good stuff.

  61. Cass says – reply to this


    I did a grad study on LSD many years ago, and hallucinogenics are a really fascinating class of drug. In someone with an underlying mental illness, hallucinogenic drugs can trigger a psychotic episode, but the drugs themselves will not create mental illness or a psychotic break in a healthy person. Contrary to popular myth, violent incidents like this one are rare, and most are merely urban legends.

  62. 62

    Makes me hungry for a Burger King Whopper with extra ketchup.

  63. 63

    Goes to show…steroids and mushrooms don't mix…

  64. 64

    I highly doubt he was on only mushrooms, maybe meth, that sounds a bit more believeable especially if he was in mma, so white trash.

  65. 65

    look at it this way folks if perez were to ever be raped by a drunk Travis Garland perez would be like "he was drunk" and wouldn't hold it against him.

    Because you were drunk or high is NOT a fuckin excuse owe up to your actions!

  66. 66

    oh my gosh, that is completely insane.
    i pray that other man didn't feel much pain, although
    im afraid he probably did.
    drugs don't make you do something like this.
    he probably was already thinking like this & the drugs
    probably enhanced all of his emotions and ideas.
    this is such a sad story.

  67. 67

    drugs like that bring out your true mental state. that dude was messed up before he took the drugs. numerous other things could have caused such a psychotic break in him. crazy just needed a trigger. mushrooms are actually good if used by sane persons in proper safe environments. it is NEVER a party drug. If you are going to do shrooms, do it alone, for spiritual exploration. he obviously had mental issues beforehand…

  68. 68

    sincerely disssgusstiing

  69. 69

    He also sodomized him and violently raped the guys girlfriend. Who apparently was out of it at the time and woke up to find the guy ripping her bf apart. There has been a lot of other reports of bad trips in the area. One Humboldt guy cut his balls off because he thought there were monsters in them and he flushed them down the toilet. Crazyness. Read about it in the Eureka Times Standard. And for all of you that are wondering why its being reported now when it happened in March. It just went to trial and was just published in the local paper 2 weeks ago. His attorney is trying to get him 2nd degree because it wasn't pre meditated.

  70. 70

    Perez you are so fucking stupid to think hallucinogenics did this.

  71. 71

    I'm gonna guess he was taking more than mushrooms. You don't hallucinate on shrooms. Maybe some steriods. I want to see that tox screen!

  72. 72

    i would never never touch that stuff, too many horror stories and it's just outright stupid.

  73. JssKa says – reply to this


    I have had a bad trip on mushrooms before(last time I'll do it by the way) but I think your mind has to already be fucked up to trip like this. Murdering someone is one thing but to think he is the devil and you have to skin off his face is just… I dont have the words

  74. 74

    this happened in my hometown. there's a bad batch being sold around probably…another guy chopped off his manhood a few weeks ago, and another guy was found wandering around the woods. there's been a whole bunch of other cases of bad trips recently in the area.

  75. 75

    I've known this guy for 15 years, we grew up int eh same small town, he's always been a piece of shit.

  76. 76

    this is the man's fault, not the mushrooms' fault. I really doubt he was on ONLY mushrooms, sounds like fucking PCP or something. Mushrooms does not make you murder or cut someone's tongue out!! I don't buy it. Enough drug propoganda.
    Psilocybin mushrooms are really safe, if you use them appropriately. This guy must have been on a lot of other shit and/or already psychotic.
    And are you 12 years old Perez? Magic Mushrooms? It's called psilocybin.

  77. 77

    no way shrooms wouldnt make u do that he was a crazy to begin with …i think hes lying to get a less severe sentence …

  78. 78

    I've done mushrooms and acid, all good experiences. I didn't know what a BAAAAAAD trip was until i tried salvia. It is possible to be completely convinced by the hallucinations, that people can be in another world and do things convinced by the drugs. I thought I couldn't hold onto reality and was ripping away from the world as we know it. it still scares me to think of that feeling. a trip this bad can leave permanent damage. he needs to get treatment!

    I found the comments posted amusing…

  79. 79

    OK. isn't that the guy who won Love Games?!?! That looks like Matt!!!

  80. 80

    when undiagnosed mental fuckups take any kind of drugs, this kind of shit happens!! wake the fuck up, it's not the drugs it's the schizo freaks that over do drugs!! fucking world full of fuckwits!!

  81. 81

    Re: sarahmargeurite – omg you are so brainwashed. doing mushrooms is not stupid if you do it for the right reasons. people have been using them for spiritual quests for THOUSANDS of years. Alcohol is more stupid and dangerous.

  82. 82

    "drugs are so bad" LOL whaaaaatever….

  83. 83

    That's fucked up. Religion are bad, mkay??

  84. 84

    wow now thats some crazy shiznit

  85. 85

    its obvious that the key ingredient to the mushrooms + MMA fighter going bad is the MMA part. dont do drugs if you are already an aggressive person and quite possibly on stereroids that have induced similar irrational rage fits. mushrooms do not make people aggressive, they might only cloud his judgement just enough to let his inner aggression out. he needs to be locked up. dont become MMA fighters, kids.

  86. 86

    I agree with others comments that steriods made him flip out. I've taken Shrooms a handful of times. One bad trip - drank a six pack of beer and watched some baseball on tv & rode it out…

  87. 87

    Please don't call this loser an MMA fighter. He has 1 amateur fight that looks like a backyard promotion. disgrace to the real ones!

  88. 88

    I can't believe all these comments about this article! You are all arguing that drugs are good and there's no way mushrooms would do that. Each individual acts differently to each drug. It's not even a matter of mushrooms being good or bad for you. I have tried mushrooms also, so I don't want to read comments that 'I don't know what I am talking about because I have never taken them'. I have lived here in Crescent City, CA for years now. This tragic event has shaken up this whole town. This isn't a drug issue, this isn't about what kind of person Taylor was, or even about what kind of person Jarrod was. I don't care what Jarrod was under the influence of. The fact is, he did it. Plain and simple. Whether or not the mushrooms he took were laced, or it was a combination of drugs, Jarrod chose to injest them. I did not know Taylor personally, so I can't say what kind of person he was, and it doesn't matter.It's very sad because alot of people here miss him very much. I also hear some negative things about Taylor. Who cares what kind of person he was and if he took the drugs too? He wound up dead. Period. And I wonder what people would say if it had been Taylor who murdered Jarrod… I feel empathy for both families.

    Re: Wenchtits
    Someone in Canada was murdered by a man who was so mentally disturbed. The guy beheaded him on the greyhound bus and then (allegedly) ate some parts of him. He wasn't under the influence at all. It could have even aggitated a preexisting mental disability.

    No matter what though, there is no excuse for something like that. Definately not safe to let out into society.

  91. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: duelastar – Yeah, the bus murderer was a 40 yr. old man formerly of China who had NO previous criminal record, who delivered newspapers and worked at McDonalds. If I recall correctly, they believed he was a paranoid schizophrenic who had stopped taking his meds.

  92. 92

    Wow, that's fucking hardcore!

  93. 93

    Re: judjud1

    trust me, this guys has always been fucked. Drugs may have helped, ut no ons is shocked that he killed someone, just in the manner.

  94. 94

    Yeah blame drugs. Not the fact that this guy's entire career was beating people as close to death as possible in front of spectators. That had nothing to do with it.

    Drugs amplify characteristics that already exist in a person; they do not create something new. Regardless, the decision to TAKE those drugs makes you liable for whatever you do under their influence.

    Blame the asshole. Don't blame the drugs.

  95. 95

    I live in Eureka, CA which is a little bit South of where this happened. The day it came out in the paper my sister who's in high school told me about it, because apparently the teachers showed it to the students. Probably to warn them about drug abuse or some shit like that. What they didn't include in the times standard was that the dude also cut pieces off of his face and fed it to his dogs, probably after he cooked it. Yes, it's true drugs can be bad and unhealthy. People have had REALLY bad trips from hallucinogens and have done stupid shit. Fucking disgusting news to read in our local paper. Next time smoke some ganja and chill, or pop a love drug pill. Personally I'm gonna stay the fuck away from the hallucinating shit.

  96. 96


  97. 97

    Re: Lucrecia – You're exactally right…he was using steriods. That's in the police report.

  98. 98

    Why should we pay for this man to live out a life sentence or life in a crazy home. Just put him down! We do it to dogs for just biting someone so lets put him down.

    PEREZ, your still a DOUCHEBAG!

  99. 99

    Bet he was on acid too :s

  100. 100

    I've taken a lot of shrooms and never once had a homicidal urge. A couple of brief panic attacks maybe but this guy was already off his rocker. I guarantee he already had psychotic issues before he took the psychedelics. His lawyer is grasping for straws. RIP Taylor.
