          What Does Father Of Frat Boy Dubbed ‘The Cannibal Killer’ Think Caused His Son’s Alleged Behavior?


          September 7, 2016

          Austin Harrouff, 19, is accused of murdering a couple in their Florida home and seriously injuring a neighbor who was trying to save their lives. The teen was dubbed the “face eating” frat boy after he allegedly tore the flesh off one of the victim’s face and abdomen with his teeth. Police claim the all-American FSU college student transformed into a brutal superhuman killer when he committed the gruesome murders.

          However, his father, Dr. Wade Harrouff, is adamant that his son is not a monster and says he never believed the teen was capable of this type of behavior.

          “He’s always been the kindest, caring kid I’ve ever seen. He always wanted to help people,” Dr. Harrouff tells Dr. Phil in an exclusive sit-down interview airing on Wednesday.
