We previously discussed HERE the case of Caius Veiovis, a murder trial defendant having satanic tattoos and horn-like bumps implemented on his face. The trial raised questions as to whether his appearance might be prejudicial to a jury.

A Springfield Massachusetts jury found Caius guilty after six days of deliberation. The verdict included findings of guilt for kidnapping and intimidation of a witness.

After the reading of the verdict, Caius yelled to the jury, “I’ll see you in Hell!”

Two co-defendants in the case were previously in the year found guilty of the same crimes and are now serving life without parole. Caius faces the same sentence during a hearing scheduled for Monday.

The Springfield Republican reported that “[p]rosecutors said Veiovis helped Adam Lee Hall, 37, of Peru, and David Chalue, 47, of North Adams, kidnap and shoot the victims weeks before Glasser was to testify against Hall, a Hells Angels member, in an assault case. The others were killed to eliminate witnesses, prosecutors said. Defense attorneys argued there was shaky evidence.

Berkshire District Attorney David Capeless said he is gratified by the verdicts and hopes it helps the victims’ families by ending “the constant reminder to them of what has happened to their loved ones.”

While residing in Maine, Caius was convicted and served seven years in prison for assaulting a teenager with a razor and reportedly licking the victim’s blood.

  1. Iconoclast As strange as it seems, there are many highly educated people that are dumb as a box of rocks when it comes to having common sense but are considered geniuses otherwise.

  2. Yes, so complete your study, Sandi, by checking into Psychiatry Germany admiting in 2012 that Psychiatry caused the Nazi Holocaust. You should get this from googling, but let me know if not. Thanks for bringing the eugenics angle up. Too much importance has been put into it. Its a bit like confusing the mind with the brain, still done today.

  3. I just finished a book about eugenics in 1920’s. Doctors in UK, for the betterment of society, using sterilization to cease genes of “low life’s.” They move to Germany. And we know what happened there. However, I would be curious what this man’s family tree might show us. This is a really extreme evolution. Purely from an intellectual standpoint, would DNA tell us anything? Strange comments, I know, but for being absorbed in this book, I might not even think these thoughts.

  4. Squeaky… people from Massachusetts aren’t sharp? You mean all of those people from Harvard, MIT, Wellesley, Tufts, BU, etc. Those people?

  5. Or as the CEO of an international company or as a politician…perhaps even a President or Senator ….hmmmmm ???

    Actually, sociopath is different than psychopath. Many people who are the movers and shakers of our society (for better or worse) have sociopathic tendencies.

  6. A sociopath cannot feel remorse or empathy.. They are very different from you and I. The only place for the sociopath is in an isolated, secure facility.

  7. Six days??? When the Defendant looks like Satan??? Well, the jury is from Massachusetts, so maybe that explains it. Those people up there aren’t the sharpest pickles in the jar, if you know what I mean.

    Interesting update. I guess the six day verdict is ample enough proof his appearance didn’t really influence their decision. It was his actions, and those of his collaborators, that ultimately decided their fate.

  9. He is from Granular which is another planet. They all look the same. He is here to learn things to take back to his planet. He will disappear and they will think he escaped. They will send him back as someone else without the tattoos. In a prior episode in Canada he was named Jack Mehoff.

    I don’t know how to contact you, so I will just put this here. This is a legal story you might want to do a post on:

    It transpired that one of Elliott’s housemates, Jon Daniel, had created the fake Twitter account, @peoriamayor, and so incensed the real-life official, Jim Ardis, with his make-believe account of drug binges and sex orgies that the police were dispatched. Elliott was just a bystander in the affair, but that didn’t stop the Swat team searching his bedroom, looking under his pillow and in a closet where they discovered a bag of marijuana and dope-smoking paraphernalia.

    Elliott now faces charges of felony marijuana possession. He has also become the subject of one of the more paradoxical – if not parody – questions in American jurisprudence: can a citizen be prosecuted for dope possession when the police were raiding his home looking for a fake Twitter account?

    A Peoria judge this week ruled that the police were entitled to raid the house on North University Street on 15 April under the town’s “false personation” law which makes it illegal to pass yourself off as a public official. Judge Thomas Keith found that police had probable cause to believe they would find materials relevant to the Twitter feed such as computers or flash drives used to create it.

    1. Squeeky. I believe we did a story on that a few months ago as the fake twitter account of a politician sounds familiar. Thank you for the suggestion.

  11. Berkshire County, the venue for this bizarre case, is an eclectic, rural area. There are antique shops, Grandma Moses and Norman Rockwell Galleries, Alice’s Restaurant. There are also biker gangs, trailer trash, meth cookers and this guy.

  12. Good to see how this ended. Do I see a little remorse in those eyes? Or is that self pity? (poor little devil…) Frankly, I think we should give him a quick execution so he can come back as an Angel in his next lifetime….

  13. Well, I guess this situation lends itself to a comment about the state of America’s prison system. Sooo, an Irish Poem!

    So now, Satan is going to jail.
    In America, that don’t end well.
    Although he did the crime,
    I bet in no time,
    He’ll beg, “Pretty please! Send me to Hell!”

  14. Darren, thanks for the update. A truly bizarre end to a bizarre trial of a bizarre defendant.

  15. I certainly hope he is not prescient and the whole jury is not going to Hell. 🙂

  16. Seems he got justice and he probably will see some of them in hell. Which ones we don’t know. It is sad that so many of our young men lose sight of what a wonderful chance we have to do good in the world not to be or emulate evil. The whole thing is sad that he wasted his life and harmed others while here. If free, he probably would have been a good candidate to join ISIS. I cannot fault the verdict.
