HEBRON, Md. - Two men face charges including attempted murder after officials say they attacked a housemate and tried to forcibly remove a tattoo from his arm.
Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis said Wednesday that the 31-year-old victim of Monday's attack had his right arm amputated below the elbow and is in critical condition.
Investigators say 33-year-old Paul Martin Hurst of Hebron and 35-year-old Carey Lee Edwards of Williamsburg, Virginia, savagely beat the victim, then tried to carve and burn a tattoo from his arm. A judge has ordered them held without bond.
Lewis says all three men are affiliated with the Juggalos, a fan base of the rap-metal duo Insane Clown Posse that the FBI has described as ganglike.
Lewis says the suspects thought the victim disrespected the group and didn't deserve the tattoo.
