"HOUSTON — A Texas death row inmate with a history of mental problems pulled out his only good eye and told authorities he ate it. Andre Thomas, 25, was arrested for the fatal stabbings of his estranged wife, their young son and her 13-month-old daughter in March 2004. Their hearts also had been ripped out. He was convicted and condemned for the infant's death."
"Thomas confessed to those crimes after walking into the Sherman Police Department on the day of the killings. Testimony at the trial revealed that Thomas thought the three were possessed by the devil and he had orders from God to kill them."
"Thomas told police how he put his victims' hearts in his pocket and left their apartment, took them home, put them in a plastic bag and threw them in the trash."
"Court documents described the three victims as having "large, gaping wounds to their chests."
First eye in 2004 while in jail waiting for his trial:
"While in the Grayson County Jail in Sherman, Thomas plucked out his right eye before his trial later in 2004. A judge subsequently ruled he was competent to stand trial."
Second eye on Dec 9 2008:
“An officer on death row was conducting a security check on 10 building when he observed what appeared to be blood on the face of (Thomas),” Clark said.
He said Thomas told officials he had pulled out his eye and eaten it.
The Mike Bennett story is what our eyes don't see, but maybe Thomas's did. Does a demons voice echo in the now hollow caverns that lead to Thomas's mind? Did the demon make his eyes see other demons in everyone? Did he eat his eyes so the demon could no longer force him to see those things? But did that turn out to be a bad idea? Is he now trapped inside the darkness of his own mind and can now only see the visions that the demon gives him? Was the demon once a Catholic Priest?
Or is the guy a total schizophrenic nut job?
