Friday Morning Update
God damn it.
From Tallahassee Democrat:
MARTIN COUNTY — Austin Harrouff won’t be breaking his silence on Friday after all.
The 19-year-old college student accused of killing a local couple in a seemingly random and unprovoked attack was scheduled to be featured in Friday’s episode of the “Dr. Phil” show on CBS, but the TV listing for that show on the CBS website changed as of Thursday to a different episode.
Why? Why must everyone conspire to keep stringing us along here? CBS, Dr. Phil, Harrouff… They’re all in on it together. They’re all equally guilty; there’s no presumed innocence when it comes to making America’s media consumers mad. I’M MAD ONLINE, DAMMIT.
I don’t want to be in the dark any longer. I need the light, like a wilting plant. I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHAT COMPELS A SUPPOSEDLY SOBER HUMAN BEING TO EAT THE FACE OF ANOTHER HUMAN BEING. Is that so much to ask?
We’ll update you if there is a new run date for the interview.
In case you’ve already suppressed the Florida Frat Face-Eater story out of your mind, let me bring you crashing back down to earth: Austin Harrouff is a former FSU student and fraternity member who is accused of murdering a Florida couple and viciously biting the male victim’s face during the act. After a prolonged silence (partly due to the fact that Harrouff himself almost died following the ordeal), Harrouff will finally tell his side of the story this Friday on America’s premiere television news program of record: Dr. Phil.
From The Palm Beach Post:
Before Austin Harrouff was arrested and charged with the fatal stabbings and infamous face-biting of a Martin County couple in their home in August, he gave a bedside interview with the “Dr. Phil” TV show, the Palm Beach Post has learned.
The sheriff’s office said there’s no legal way it could have prohibited the interview, but the son of the man killed by Harrouff told The Post in an exclusive interview that the sheriff could have arrested the Jupiter teenager sooner.
In a segment called “The frat boy dubbed ‘cannibal killer’ breaks his silence from his hospital bed,” the show programmers say they have “an exclusive interview, right before his arrest” that is set to air Friday.
Technically Harrouff already told his side of the story, as his phone interview with Phil McGraw, Ph.D. took place in between Harrouff’s alleged murderous rampage and his arrest, but we’re all going to finally hear it this Friday, and I can’t wait. Drug tests haven’t determined yet that Harrouff had any drugs in his system (I believe all tests have come back negative thus far), so what could’ve possibly been going through Austin’s mind when he did what he did? Hopefully this interview sheds some light on the subject, though I have a feeling it will only bring about more questions.
Also, remember to not be an asshole this Halloween — don’t go as Austin Harrouff, you dick..
