Man Accused Of Torturing 2-Year-old In Werewolf Mask Kills Himself
A Florida man who reportedly tortured his girlfriend’s 2-year-old daughter by burning and shooting her while in a wolf mask has committed suicide.
The NY Daily News reports that Andrew Ross-Celaius, 37, passed away at a hospital on Tuesday after he had been found hanging in his jail cell on May 1.
Ross-Celaius had initially been arrested on April 9 and charged with child abuse, aggravated child abuse, probation violation, possession of a weapon and numerous drug charges.
Escambia County Sheriff David Morgan said the child abuse was discovered after the child’s mom took her to the ER believing that she had ringworm. After examining the girl they realised she was being abused and that the marks on her body were burns.
Officers then went to the girl’s home where they found evidence of abuse on surveillance cameras and cell phones. There was also signs of sexual abuse. The whole time he wore a werewolf mask while he was filmed burning the child with a butane lighter, shooting her with an airsoft gun and even shocking her with a dog collar.
