A sword-wielding man tailed a neighbor into a parking lot, repeatedly stabbed him and left him to die, according to charges filed Friday.
Edlbeck was walking to his car Wednesday morning when Schams walked up beside him, pulled out the sword from underneath his black leather trench coat and stabbed Edlbeck several times, the complaint said.
Schams cut himself in the process so he called 911, saying he'd cut himself making breakfast and needed help, the complaint said. When an ambulance arrived, a neighbor alerted the responders to Edlbeck's dead body in the parking lot. Detectives questioned Schams, who said the drops of blood in the parking lot were his and that he "did it," the complaint said.
According to the criminal complaint, Mr. Frick also told Ms. Hackney she had to die because it was her fault that Satan was still in his life.
Mr. Frick traveled to the Dreher Twp. residence, where he punched Ms. Hackney in the head. Ms. Hackney ran into a room and shut the door.
According to the criminal complaint, Mr. Frick shot at the closed door with the crossbow. Ms. Hackney, who was not struck, fled to a closet and again shut the door. Mr. Frick took a sword and stuck it through the closed door, again missing Ms. Hackney.
That was just in the last two weeks. Concerned yet?
