I have tattoos, I plan on collecting more tattoos in the future, so it would be somewhat hypocritical of me to denigrate anyone who practices body modification. That being said whenever you hear about someone with the numbers 666 inked into their forehead and implanted demon-like horns alongside them, it usually is not the part of a feel-good story.
Take for example, Roy Gutfinski Jr, who legally changed his name to Caius Domitius Veiovis in 2008 and was found guilty yesterday of triple murder and dismemberment.
Via The New York Daily News:
A Massachusetts jury has convicted Caius Veiovis of murdering three men in Berkshire County and dumping their chopped-up bodies, according to local reports.
“I’ll see you all in hell! Every f—ing one of you! I’ll see you all in hell!” Veiovis told the jury.
The multiple-tattoed man with horn-like projections embedded in his head was found guilty by jurors who spent four full days and an additional two hours deliberating the macabre case.
He will be sentenced on Monday. The charges carry a mandatory sentence of life imprisonment.
Veiovis, with Adam Lee Hall and David Chalue, kidnapped and murdered David Glasser, Edward Frampton and Robert Chadwell, then dismembered their bodies and dumped them on private property. Read More…
Oh by the way, he was on Social Security Disability since shortly after being released from prison at the age of 18.
Originally from Maine, Gutfinski, a month after he turned 19, was committed to the state’s psychiatric hospital after assaulting his girlfriend and threatening her boss with an ax.
Later, in August 1999, he in an apartment in Augusta, he and his 17-year-old girlfriend took a razor and sliced a 16-year-old girl in the small of her back. The wound required 32 stitches to close.
Gutfinski and his girlfriend then licked the blood and kissed. He told police he was a vampire, but one who was without fangs and able to go about in daylight.
After his conviction in 2000 of the vampire incident is when Gutfinski began altering his appearance, with the horn-like implants in his forehead, filing his teeth, reshaping his earlobes and acquiring the ink.
A real winner.
