A Key West man is dead after being beaten and stabbed in the eyes after an argument over cannibalism, according to reports.
Justin Calhoun, 24, is facing murder charges in the death of Mark Brann, 67.
According to a spokeswoman for the Monroe County Sheriff, Calhoun the faggot, self-identified as a woman when being booked and is being housed in a MALE facility, but inside a private cell. In the arrest affidavit, detectives who spoke with Calhoun use MALE pronouns.
The arrest report contains disturbing details about the white on white crime. According to the document, Calhoun, who is a MALE stripper, told police that he and Brann were butt-buddies. Calhoun was reportedly homeless and often spent the night at Brann’s residence.
On Monday, Calhoun told detectives that he believed Brann was a “cannibal” and that the two began arguing when Calhoun asked about it. Calhoun said Brann grabbed a gun, forcing a struggle. The gun went off but no one was hit. Calhoun said the fight continued until he gained control and aimed it at Brann, but when he tried to shoot the gun jammed.
According to the arrest report, Calhoun said he told detectives he grabbed a pen and stabbed Brann in both eyes, then, when Brann apparently was yelling, Calhoun told police he grabbed a broken piece of wood from a dresser, damaged during the fight, and stuffed it into Brann’s mouth to shut him up.
Police say Calhoun told them he stood up and “stomped” on the piece of wood, driving it further into the faggot’s mouth, and continued to beat him by slamming a dresser drawer down onto Brann’s head and throat.
According to reports, Brann’s roommate tried to get in the room to help but Calhoun locked the door.
Calhoun told police he grabbed his backpack, money, and a dress to wear, then jumped out of the bedroom window naked.
He avoided Key West Police by jumping fences and climbing on roof tops.
After being arrested, police reportedly recovered cocaine and Brann’s prescription pills in Calhoun’s backpack, as well as more than $10,000 in cash.
