Suspect in deadly face-biting attack identified as 19-year-old Florida university student

A man has been arrested after a gruesome and random murder of an older Florida couple outside their home north of Palm Beach on Monday.

The Martin County Sheriff’s Office said a 19-year-old Austin Harrouff was possibly high on hallucinogenic drugs when he fatally attacked, beat, and stabbed Michelle Mishcon, 53, and John Stevens, 59, while they sat inside their garage.

Martin County Sheriff William Snyder said Tuesday that deputies captured the Florida State University student as he was biting the dead man’s face in their driveway in Tequesta, an affluent coastal community.

Authorities also said a neighbour who tried to pull the suspect off the victim was also stabbed.
