Suspect interested in cannibalism, killings

Quick

– A man accused of stabbing more than a dozen people at a Houston-area college told investigators that he had fantasized about cannibalism and necrophilia and about cutting off people’s faces and wearing them as masks, according to a court document made public on Thursday.

Dylan Quick also told an investigator that he had researched mass stabbings on his home computer about a week before the attack at Lone Star College in Cypress, according to a search warrant affidavit.

“He stated that he had read numerous books about mass killings and serial killers, which are also located at his residence,” the affidavit said.

Quick is being held without bond on three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for Tuesday’s attack that injured 14 people. Only one person remained hospitalized Thursday, and that person was listed in good condition.

Quick’s attorney, Jules Laird, said after a court hearing earlier Thursday that he was still looking into his client’s background. Laird said he didn’t think the 20-year-old had a history of mental illness. But he said Quick was on suicide watch and will stay in jail as he undergoes a psychological evaluation.

The affidavit released later in the day named nine items that were seized from Quick’s home, including one listed as “Hanibal Lecter Mask.” Hannibal Lecter is the cannibalistic serial killer from the 1991 movie “The Silence of the Lambs.”

Other items seized included a laptop, an animal dissection kit and books.

Laird described Quick as a voracious reader who had thousands of books.
