FIVE SLAUGHTERED IN DRUG-FUELLED BLOODBATH
A MAN arrested over the murders of five pals has blamed the massacre on drugs.
Derrick Dearman told reporters as he was being escorted to jail that he was on methamphetamine when he went to the house, at the bottom of a dead-end dirt road.
The 27-year-old said: “Drugs (were) making me think things that’s not really there.”
Cops said that after the killings Dearman abducted his estranged girlfriend Laneta Lester, who had sought refuge at the house, and a child of two of the victims.
Dearman said he spared their lives because “I came down and realised what was really going on”.
He added: “I turned myself in because I was sober and knew what was the right thing to do.”
Dearman expressed his love for Ms Lester and apologised “to all the family members”.
Saying all the victims were friends, he warned: “Don’t do drugs,” adding that he does not deserve to live.
A man who said his family provided a home for Dearman and Ms Lester earlier this year said Dearman was often on methamphetamine and physically abused Ms Lester.
“He was taking her out to the woods and beating the crap out of her,” said Charlie Passarelli, who said he had known Dearman for years.
He said he suspected MASSACRE: Drugged-up Dearman (left) slaughtered pals at their rural home Ms Lester was either buying or selling drugs before Dearman and Ms Lester moved out in late spring.
The killings left three men and two women dead, including a pregnant woman and her unborn child.
A teenager who said she was related to all five victims by marriage or blood fought back tears as she described her anguish over the massacre.
“They were really good people. They’d call and check on you, ask if you want to come down and eat,” said Madison McDaniel, 17, who lives near the scene of the violence in Mobile, rural Alabama.

But the 19-year-old stunna showed off more than she bargained for when she flashed her NIPPLE in this racy bikini shot.
Sports Illustrated babe Alexis, from California, flaunted her perky nip in the shot as she avoided getting unsightly tan lines by stripping out of her bikini top.
The blonde beauty shared the steamy video clip on Snapchat as she soaked up the sun wearing nothing but a pair of skimpy black bottoms.
Dearman, who’s from Leakesville, Mississippi, will be charged with six counts of murder, including one charge for the unborn child, a spokeswomanfor the county sheriff said.
The dead were identified as Shannon Melissa Randall, 35, Joseph Adam Turner, 26, Justin Kaleb Reed, 23, Chelsea Marie Reed, 22, and Robert Brown, 26.
At 1am on Saturday, someone inside the home called 911 and reported that Dearman was on the property. Police came to the house, but Dearman had left, sheriff’s officials said.
Before daylight on Saturday, Dearman returned and attacked the victims while they slept, police said.
Authorities said at least one gun and other, unspecified, weapons were used.
After the killings, Dearman forced Ms Lester and a threemonth-old identified by relatives as the child of Ms Randall and Mr Turner into a vehicle, and they drove to Dearman’s father’s house in Mississippi.
Dearman released Ms Lester and the infant and turned himself in.
