A devil worshipping murderer who was out on bond has killed again. Houston Police just charged 23-year-old Edward O’Neal with murder after he shot and killed another man. What was this psychopath doing on the streets?
Devil worshipper kills again
Edward O’Neal was only 18-years-old when he was arrested for stabbing another teen to death in 2016. His victim, a 16-year-old boy from Houston, was reported missing by his mother when he didn’t come home from school. A few days later, the boy was found brutally murdered in the woods near his home.
A relative of O’Neal told the victim’s mother that he confessed to the killing and told her where the body was located. The victim was found in that spot stabbed to death. “I just want justice for my son,” the victim’s mother told reporters. “I’m beyond frustrated. I’m angry.”
O’Neals father said he checked his son into a psychiatric hospital and the boy had a history of mental illness and devil worshipping. “Oh I know that he’s worshiping the devil and stuff,” said O’Neal. “He didn’t tell me nothing. He didn’t say nothing about doing nothing. He’s mentally retarded.”
The suspect and the victim were close friends. O’Neal even lived with the victim for a few months. Authorities believe the killing was a part of a satanic ritual. “Give him life,” the victim’s mother pleaded. “Give him the death penalty, I don’t care which one but I don’t want him harming not another person.”
Houston killer set free
O’Neal’s bond was originally set at $50,000, but for some reason that was reduced to $25,000, which was low enough to get him out of jail. Edward O’Neal was awaiting trial when he killed again last week. He was arrested for the shooting death of 39-year-old Derrick Mike at an apartment complex in Houston.
Reporters reached out to the mother of O’Neal’s first victim for comment. “It’s sad that another family is having to go through what I went through because the justice system failed us.” Many are wondering why this mentally ill devil worshipper was out on the streets.
Dane Schiller, a spokesman for the Harris County District Attorney’s Office, said “Our prosecutors told the judge in court that we opposed bond being lowered for this defendant and we twice filed motions asking the judge to set conditions on the defendant’s bond if he were to be released pending trial. We also let the judge know the facts of the original murder, to ensure the court was aware of our concerns for public safety.” This judge has blood on his hands.
