A former college student believed he was “half-dog, half-man” when he fatally attacked a man and woman at their home and was found biting one of their faces.
In a 38-page mental-health report released this week Dr. Phillip Resnick made the conclusion Austin Harrouff believed he was “half-dog, half-man”
Investigators say they found Harrouff, now 22, biting one of the victims faces while making growling noises on Aug. 15, 2016.
Resnick’s report says the fact that Harrouff persisted in biting the victim “in the presence of police officers, in spite of threats of being shot, being tased and receiving multiple kicks to the head, suggests that Mr. Harrouff was actively psychotic.”
Harrouff’s attorneys are preparing an insanity defense for the Nov. 4 trial.
