An 18-year-old devil worshiping escort allegedly bludgeoned and stabbed his ‘sugar daddy’ to death over $800. Dillon O’Donnell has been charged with first-degree murder in the killing of 38-year-old William Davis. Police said Mr Davis, who is known as Billy, was beaten with a concrete garden ornament and stabbed several times with a folding knife.
His body was found in a pool of blood in the yard of the two-story house he shared with his grandmother and aunt in Ormond Beach, Florida, reports The Daytona Beach News-Journal.
The knife was found on the ground at the end of a bloody trail and the ornament, a lion, was found nearby also drenched in blood.
O’Donnell’s roommates said the teenager had waved a knife around and talked about killing the victim a day before the brutal murder.
They told the News-Journal that he had recently become a male escort to make ‘quick money’ and Mr Davis was his second client.
He saw Mr Davis, who he felt owed him $800, as his ‘sugar daddy’, according to the charges.
Investigators also found a picture of O’Donnell on a dating app Davis had on his phone, reports the paper.
‘He told me and my brother what he was going to do (kill Davis) but we thought he was kidding,’ Richard DeForest, 21, who lived in the same house as O’Donnell, told the News-Journal.
‘He was satanic so we thought it had something to do with that; we thought he was looking for attention.’
‘He wanted to charge $350 an hour, I guess he thought this guy (Davis) owed him $800.’ Mr DeForesttold the News-Journal.
The roommates called police on Friday night, just hours after the killing.
O’Donnell had returned to the home and where they spotted Davis’ car in the drive way and O’Donnell in his bedroom, naked and wiping a lot blood off his arms. But there was no sign of Davis.
‘When we saw him we didn’t even ask why he had blood on his arms. I thought it was that devil-worship stuff.’ Mr DeForest told the News-Journal.
The roommates said O’Donnell liked to talk about blood and sometimes wore a red contact lens and a white contact lens to make his eyes look demonic.
In the days before the murder, Mr Davis and O’Donnell had been texting each other, police said.
The texting was initiated by Mr Davis, who at 10am on Thursday, asked O’Donnell if he could see him that evening, the report states.
At around 10pm that night Mr Davis picked O’Donnell up from his home and took him back to his house.
Sometime early Friday, Davis’ aunt Shirley Davis noticed a man was trying to hide in the side yard of the property and called the police.
Davis’ body was found dumped in the yard.
