Police: Suspect threw murder victim's hacked off arms at witnesses

KIRKSVILLE, MO (KCTV) -
A Kirksville man is in jail accused of a gruesome killing.
Paul R. Potter, 49, is accused of hacking off the arms of a person and throwing the appendages at witnesses. Potter is being held on a $1 million cash only bond. A judge said he would have to put up $100,000 cash to be replaced from jail on charges of second-degree murder, second-degree arson and felony tampering with a motor vehicle.
Authorities have not released details on the victim. Adair County Coroner Brian Noe was in a meeting Tuesday morning and could not be reached for comment.
Police responding late Sunday to a report of a disturbance said they found Potter near a burning car and two nearby apartments on fire. A police report says officers saw Potter throw two objects at witnesses that were later determined to be human arms.
An armless body with multiple stab wounds was discovered in a nearby apartment.
Potter was charged Monday. He does not have a court date set.

Thank God this fiend didn't use a gun during the crime. Good reason now to ban all knives and cigarette lighters.

No doubt about it, He was "armed and dangerous". He was only arrested after he was "disarmed".

It would seem that this man has serious anger issues. I wonder if his anger is root cause of the violence because there was no gun at the scene to egg him on.

I wonder if the knife he used was registered? It should have been banned because it was an assult knife.
