Self-professed serial killer John Hughes considers his thoughts those "of a supreme being." Hughes made the declaration last night in an exclusive interview with KMBC Channel 9.
Maybe he is operating on a plane we're not advanced enough to understand. We always thought a supreme being could figure out a way to live the sweet life in a tropical paradise as opposed to, say, spending the rest of his days chained to a concrete floor covered in urine. John Hughes, you truly have risen above us.
Hughes is serving a life sentence for an August 2008 murder and robbery in
Ohio. He was transferred to Platte County, where he's charged with first-degree murder for shooting and killing Valentin G. Kirilchuk, a 39-year-old trucker from Springfield, after Hughes' girlfriend lured Kirilchuk to a rest stop in September 2008.
During the interview, Hughes claimed to have killed
15 to 20 people. He also showed off a lion tattoo
(because he sees himself as a lion among men) and a tattoo of a biblical quote
about the Antichrist (because he thinks he's the Antichrist). Yep. An
all-powerful devil lion who needs his girlfriend to lure men to
rest stops for him to slay. That fits.
