Washington police have arrested a man and accused him of killing his own father, as reported by NY Daily News.
Lane Davis, 33, allegedly stabbed his father, Charles Davis, 73, after an argument in which Lane accused his parents of being pedophiles.
According to Daily Beast, the 33-year-old was an active participant in alt-right Internet circles, even working as an intern for disgraced Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos. As such, Daily Beast indicated, Lane became obsessed with the conspiracy theory that left-leaning Americans were actually pedophiles, eventually accusing his own parents of participating in ghoulish sex acts.
His mother, Catherine Davis, called 911 as her son began growing more agitated, telling the dispatcher that he was screaming that his parents and others were “pedophiles who were taking over the country.”
“He’s not physically threatening us or anything,” Catherine said, according to a tape of the 911 call which was acquired by Daily Beast. “He just gets out of control and he’s ranting about stuff from the Internet.”
“He’s not working and he gets on these rampages and he just needs to move on.”
The dispatcher suggested that the parents avoid their son until police arrived, but Catherine said that was becoming impossible, due to the fact that he was stalking them around their home.
“We’re trying to but he’s chasing us around the house,” she noted. “He’s mad about something on the internet about leftist pedophiles and he thinks we’re leftist and he’s calling us pedophiles.”
“He needs an intervention of some kind here.”
Catherine hung up the phone but it kept recording, the contents later being found by Skagit County Detective Kevin Sigman, according to an arrest report.
Lane can be heard confronting his parents, accusing them of trying to send him to jail.
“OK well, so here’s the deal. If I am going to go to prison for threatening to kill somebody, I mean…” he said, allegedly alluding that he should actually commit the act of murder.
Thats when his parents say their son picked up a knife. Catherine called 911 again but, at this point, the audio became muffled, though some words can be picked up.
“He stabbed him,” Catherine can be heard screaming. “He’s dead. He’s dead. He’s dead.”
After allegedly committing the horrific act, Lane went outside and raised his hands in the air, awaiting an arrest.
Police noted that the 33-year-old said that Charles had “called him a Nazi” and tried to kick him out of the house. Authorities also indicated that, upon arrest, he had blood on his clothing and admitted to stabbing his father in the chest.
This is an ongoing investigation.
