A father allegedly killed a sex offender with moose antlers, after learning the man was sexually abusing his young daughter.
Father Against Daughter’s Sex Abuser
According to court documents obtained by Fox News, a Minnesota father admitted to killing a convicted sex offender whom he believed had previously stalked his young daughter.
The father reportedly used a moose antler to “finish him off.”
According to Fox News, Levi Axtell, 27, entered a police station on March 8 while covered in blood, knelt down, and informed the police that he had killed Lawrence V. Scully, 77, by beating him with a shovel.
He added he’d “finished” the job with the moose part, he allegedly told cops.
The report states that Axtell then placed his hands on his head, requested to be handcuffed, and threatened to harm others if he was not restrained.
The Cook County Sheriff’s Office reported that they discovered Lawrence V. Scully deceased inside his residence in Grand Marais, a town located approximately two hours north of Duluth.
The Sexual Abuser Was Previously Convicted
Scully had been convicted of molesting a 6-year-old girl in 1979.
The pair had a long history of conflict, according to reports.
WTIP reported that in 2018, Axtell had accused Scully of “stalking” and “attempting to groom” his young daughter who was in day care at the time, by parking his van at the facility. Axtell had also attempted to obtain an order of protection against Scully.
Although the request was initially approved, it was ultimately dismissed a few weeks later.
Father Seeks Revenge
Approximately two years later, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Axtell shared a post on Facebook stating, “Only cure for pedophiles? A bullet.”
Axtell was arraigned Friday on a second-degree murder charge and is being held on a $1 million bond.
There had been recent allegations against Scully, but Cook County Sheriff Pat Eliasen told the Associated Press they “didn’t reveal anything” and that most of the reports were “regarding harassment.”
Axtell is next due in court April 10.
