Police said the victim, Robert Maley, 25, was stabbed after
refusing to let his roommates suck his blood.
Maley was reportedly staying with two friends, Aaron Homer, 24, and Amanda
Williamson, 21, at an apartment complex in Chandler. Maley told police that
he had allowed the couple to suck his blood on previous occasions, but he
wasn't interested this time, which led to the stabbing.
"These people ... practice paganism and vampirism and follow the vampire
cult," said Sgt. Joe Favazzo of the Chandler Police Department.
Homer reportedly told officers that he became enraged and stabbed Maley
because he felt Maley was making fun of his religion.
