Police: Accused Killer Said He Was Collecting Souls For Satan

MESA, Ariz. (AP) — Police say a 20-year-old Mesa man charged with first-degree murder in a fatal stabbing said before the stabbing that he worked for Satan.

Ricardo Alejandro Ramirez is being held in lieu of $1 million bond in the killing of 57-year-old William Bishop of Tempe in a restroom of a Mesa light rail station early Saturday morning.

A probable cause statement by police says a witness told investigators that Ramirez said outside the restroom that he was collecting souls for Satan and liked the taste of blood.

The witness told investigators he thought Ramirez was joking around until Ramirez attacked the victim.

Police arrested Ramirez about a block from the station.

It’s not immediately clear whether he has an attorney. Two court appearances have been scheduled for him in January.
