Elderly couple attacked with crossbow, hatchet

Humptulips, Washington – Prosecutors say 31-year-old John Chase was walking down the highway when he saw Ralph Aldrich, 88, in his back yard.

He then stole their truck and drove to a friend’s house. “He told his friend he was trying to get away, that demons were after him, he’d been living in the woods for several days, that he had just killed two demons and stole their truck,” said Undersheriff Rick Scott. The friend learned the truck was owned by a couple in Humptulips. When he drove the truck out there he found Ralph dead in the yard.  Full Article
