Killer blames binge-watching zombies on Netflix for murder

A Prewitt, NM man was arrested Thursday afternoon after allegedly beating his friend to death while they were drunk after the man said his friend began “to change into a zombie.”…

The man, identified as 23-year-old Damon Perry, told police he had been binge-watching “The Walking Dead” on Netflix recently.

Grants police originally responded to a Grants apartment complex after 911 callers said a man – later identified as Perry – was running around the complex threatening people with a knife.

When officers arrived, two maintenance workers were holding Perry down. Inside a nearby apartment, an officer found the friend unresponsive with signs of trauma. The friend was pronounced dead at the scene.

Perry was taken to police headquarters and interviewed. There, he told detectives that while the two were drinking the friend began “to change into a zombie” and tried to bite him…

He allegedly then punched and kicked the friend, and also hit the friend with an electric guitar and microwave, among other household items…

Perry has been charged with an open count of murder and is being held at the Cibola County Detention Center.

Well, a little advanced over the usual excuses – demons, ghosts, possession. A contemporary addition to the range of stupid excuses used by substance-abusing killers.
