This is so horrifying.

According to Martin (FL) County Sheriff William Snyder, a husband and wife, both around 50 years old, were stabbed to death late Monday evening in Tequesta, Florida. As deputies arrived at the home (above), they found the suspect cannibalizing the victims.

Snyder reported that it took multiple deputies and the help of a K-9 unit, all delivering “as much force as physically possible” to pull the suspect off the dead body and arrest him.

Snyder believes he knows why the man was so hard to corral, too, and the answer is unsettling:

“I wouldn’t be surprised to find out if it was Flakka.”

Flakka, also known as alpha-pyrrolidinopentiophenone, or alpha-PVP, is a synthetic drug that is similar to bath salts, according to reports.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, Flakka use is on the rise in Florida, and the organization’s website outlines its issues:

“Like other drugs of this type, alpha-PVP can cause a condition called ‘excited delirium’ that involves hyperstimulation, paranoia, and hallucinations that can lead to violent aggression and self-injury.”

That is horrifying…

As for this case itself, cops believe this is some type of domestic incident, and that the victims and the suspect knew each other.

Sadly, a passerby who happened upon the scene and attempted to help the victims was also stabbed and seriously wounded, according to Snyder. That person is now in the hospital.

Furthermore, authorities are reportedly looking for a 26-year-old woman described as an “associate” of the suspect. Police believe she may have been in danger, and they are concerned for her welfare.

So, so scary and sad.

RIP to the victims of this unimaginable crime.
