A 19-year-old killed a pygmy goat and may have sexually assaulted it while high on bath salts and dressed in bra and panties.
Mark Thompson, from South Charleston, West Virginia, allegedly stole his neighbour's pet goat on Monday and was later found in his bedroom, half naked with the dead goat, which was covered in blood, beside him. According to the Charleston Gazette, Lisa Powers bought the goat, which they named Bailey, on Friday as a gift to her four-year-old grandson. Her nephew, Joshua Pollis got a call from neighbours on Monday morning. She said: 'They told him that my goat was wandering around in Mark's house and he'd better come and get it. They called my nephew because he'd been there before.'
According to the criminal complaint filed in Kanawha County Magistrate Court, police and two women entered Thompson's house looking for the goat and made their way to his bedroom door. Ms Powers explained to the Charleston Gazette that he told them not to enter as he was naked.
She said: 'But they opened the door and he was standing there with his pants down. He had on women's clothing and the goat was dead and there was blood everywhere. It was just a scene.'
