According to NewsOK.com, a "demonic drawing," handwritten notes, a novelty bullet, four knives, a dagger and a CD of the heavy metal group SLIPKNOT were collected from the bedroom floor of a slain couple's burned home in Midwest City, Oklahoma during a police investigation of their teenage grandson.
Kyle Smith, 17, is accused of attacking his grandparents with a machete, videotaping their bodies and setting the house on fire. He is being held in Oklahoma County jail. Prosecutors plan to charge him by April 11.
Police Chief Brandon Clabes said Smith "admitted to investigators when he was arrested that he was into heavy metal music."
According to a police affidavit released last Friday (March 25), Smith used his cell phone to shoot video that shows the couple's bodies on the floor of their home and the end of a machete poking at the heads and eyes of the bodies. Police said Smith can be heard talking during the video, but they would not release what was said.
