A husband and wife in Massachusetts were spending a quiet night at home when they were startled by a man on their porch, completely naked, asking for help.
According to the Boston Globe, Orion Krause went to a neighbor’s home in Groton, Massachusetts, after allegedly bludgeoning four people to death. The 22-year-old man was reportedly completely covered in mud and had blood in his face when he arrived to Wagner Alcocer’s home at about 5:45 on Friday.
“Help me please, help me please,” he said. “I murdered four people.”
Though Alcocer told the newspaper he couldn’t believe the young man could have done this, it appears the suspect was telling the truth.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Krause was arrested on Friday and charged with the murder of four people at a home in Groton: An elderly couple, and two middle-aged women.
Middlesex District Attorney Marian T. Ryan said in a press conference that the quadruple murder was a “a tragic incident of family violence.” Authorities have not revealed the identities of he victims or the suspect’s relationship to them.
But relatives told the Boston Globe that Bertha Mae Parker, 68, was among those killed. She was reportedly a caretaker for an elderly couple who lived in the Groton home.
When police arrived to Alcocer’s home on Friday, they reportedly gave Krause a sheet to cover himself. They spoke to him briefly and took him into custody.
An officer arrived later to tell Alcocer the news.
“It looks like what he said is true,” the detective reportedly said.
The Boston Globe confirmed that Krause is a 2017 graduate of Oberlin College & Conservatory. A Facebook page appearing to belong to the suspect indicates he lives in Maine.
CrimeOnline will update this story as more information becomes available.
