          Father Of Frat Boy Dubbed ‘Cannibal Killer”s Message To Family Of Victims


          September 7, 2016

          Austin Harrouff, a 19-year-old FSU student, is accused of murdering married couple John Stevens and Michelle Mishcon as they sat in the garage of their Tequesta, Florida home. The 19-year-old was dubbed the “cannibal killer” by the media after he allegedly stabbed the couple to death, biting one of his alleged victim’s face and abdomen while making animal noises, and then stabbing the couple’s neighbor who was attempting to save their lives.

          The violent crime and Austin’s reportedly superhuman strength left police questioning if the “zombie” street drug Flakka was to blame. But Austin’s father, Dr. Wade Harrouff, says he believes mental illness caused the tragedy.

          In an exclusive sit-down interview with Dr. Phil airing Wednesday, Dr. Harrouff apologizes for his son’s behavior and shares a message with the victims’ families.

          “It’s just the worst thing I could ever think of. This is the biggest nightmare I could ever even dream of,” Dr. Harrouff says. “I’m deeply sorry for what my son did to those people. And I apologize for him, because my son would have never done that. He’s such a good person.”
