The disturbing confessions of a Louisiana man accused in three 2017 murders, the reveal of a suspect who viewed a killing spree just like a deer hunt, and those who watched the victims as well as the animals, he was a license to kill, police reports show.
Ryan Sharpe — who was arrested in October last year in connection with the shooting death of three men and the attempted murder of a fourth in East Feliciana Parish — told the authorities that he compared killing people to hunting deer and he believed that he was responsible for filling up the 12 government-issued hunting tags, The Lawyer reported.
“According to Sharpe, he is responsible for the filling of five tags for the Louisiana State Police, and 12 for the FBI, the police, the report stated. “He told the researchers that he had not caught on to October 2017 day, he would have been able in a few days to finish filling his tags and could be in.”
Between September and October 2017, Sharpe allegedly shot his victims within a 25-mile radius in the Louisiana city, The Lawyer reported.
Thomas Bass, 62, Brad DeFranceschi, 48, and Carroll Broad, 66, were shot. Buck Hornsby, 47, was shot in September 2017, but survived.
A judge ruled last week Sharpe is incompetent to stand trial.
