Convicted Felon and Owner of Satanic Material Appears in Florida Court
PANAMA CITY, F.L.--A convicted felon who owned satanic writings and shrines pleaded guilty to a charge of possessing an illegal gun Monday in Florida.
Edward Victor Williams appeared in court Monday, June 24, for threatening a game warden's life in February. However, reports say when police later investigated his Panama City home, they found not only a high-powered deer rifle but also satanic shrines.
Williams' shrines included offerings of mutilated baby dolls that had an appearance of having been raped, burned and impaled. Authorities decided to hold Williams until a hearing in April after making their discovery, according to sources.
Police arrested Williams once again in April after they found him high on methamphetamine. When they searched his home a second time, they discovered a letter addressed to the devil that apologized for all the good deeds Williams had completed throughout his life. Williams also wrote that he would try to do more evil. Sources say Williams addressed the letter to "Oh devil, Oh demon, Oh Lucifer."
"That will be my goal: pure evil," he reportedly wrote.
Authorities also found a bomb recipe in Williams' home, according to sources.
A witness at Williams' trial said the mutilated dolls showed Williams' unique sense of humor. The witness also reportedly said Williams used the dolls to scare away unwanted visitors.
Williams' sentencing is currenly scheduled to take place Thursday, Oct. 3. He faces up to 10 years in prison for allegedly being a felon in possession of a firearm, reports say.
