Just days after Michael Brea killed his mother the actor has spoken of the reasons why he felt the need to commit such an atrocious act.
From his ward at the Bellevue Hospital the 31 year old told the press, “I didn’t kill her. I killed the demon inside her,” adding, “It was the work of God.”
He said that several ‘visions’ spurred him on and he was left with no other choice but to carry out their bidding.
“I was sleeping in my bedroom. God came above my bed and reached his arm to me, I said, ‘God is my time on earth over?’ I heard a voice say, ‘Yes Michael today is your last day.’”
Just over a week ago he joined a Masonic hall and states that a man put a curse on him there.
“[He] kept trying to put something in my hand but wouldn’t show it to me. I kept opening my hand. It was a Freemason pin. I wouldn’t touch it,” he said.
Subsequent omens occurred while travelling on the subway where apparently strangers approached him to speak about his mother.
“I felt like Neo from ‘The Matrix.’ I began hearing voices and feeling powerful,” Michael said. “They were asking about the difference between mom and mother. It was a sign.”
He hugged 55 year old Yannick Brea when he arrived at their Prospect Heights home because he knew, “I would never see her again.”
Michael went to his bedroom and after lighting candles he placed a dagger and ceremonial Freemason sword next to him. Yannick knocked the bedroom door and asked for help in the kitchen.
“I looked at these chickens lying dead in the pot and a voice told me it was a sacrifice. It was black magic,” said Michael. He left his kitchen duties and returned to his room, but when his mother asked him why he wasn’t helping he claims she spoke with a ‘demon’ voice.
“She had the voice of the demon. I opened the door with the dagger at my side and the sword,” he explained. “I asked, ‘Do you believe in God?’ She said, ‘No, Michael no,’ and began screaming. I began slashing her like this,” he motions violently with his right hand.
A chase ensued through the house leaving trails of blood in its wake.
“I didn’t want to kill her right away,” he said. “I wanted to give her time to get right with God.”
Michael took his time despite the police arriving because he “knew they wouldn’t open the door and stop me because the spirits were protecting me. I just kept cutting her. No one could stop me. I was doing the work of God.”
Police described a macabre scene inside the apartment and a bloody trail of hand and footprints led them to the bathroom where Yannick knelt on the floor; Michael stood close by holding the sword in one hand and a Masonic bible in the other.
“I heard voices telling me how powerful I was, saying ‘Oh he’s good,'” said a remorseless Brea. “I was praising God. To you it might sound silly, but in my culture demons are very real.”
