This Teen Says He Killed His Brother Because He Thought He Was A Goblin

no title

Cody Metzker-Madsen testified in an Iowa courtroom yesterday that when he killed his 5-year-old foster brother, he thought he was killing a goblin.

Yes, like fantasy-creature-goblin.

Apparently the two were out playing and that whenever Cody would start to play, he’d enter his own magical world that even looked and smelled different.

Cody said:

“What happened was that, I was playing with Dominic and I was in my own world when I was doing it ├óΓé¼┬ª my own world is pretty hard to explain.”

He went on to talk about how when he was in his own world, he saw an army of goblins he had to battle.

Then he spotted the goblin king, attacked him with a brick and left him face down in a ravine.

The goblin king was actually his foster brother, Dominic.

Near the end of his testimony, Cody said:

“I feel like a regretful little punk. [Dominic] was like a brother I hadn’t had in a long time.”

Cody’s lawyer is attempting to use the insanity defense.

Unless he’s totally lying, we feel like that might be his best defense.

Our heart goes out to the family of that poor young boy whose life was ended too soon.
