CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- An Alum Creek man has been arrested after neighbors allegedly found him standing over the dead body of a stolen pygmy goat while wearing women's underwear.
Mark Lucas Thompson, 19, of Greenview Road was taken into custody early Monday at his home. Deputies had dealt with the man before and believe him to be mentally unstable.
Thompson told deputies he had been high on bath salts for the last three days, said Cpl. Sean Snuffer, a detective with the sheriff's office.
Deputy J.S. Shackelford was dispatched about 3:15 a.m. Monday to the home on Quebec Drive to investigate a possible animal cruelty complaint. Lisa Powers called 911 to report that her neighbor, Thompson, had stolen and killed her grandson's pet pygmy goat, according to a complaint filed in Kanawha Magistrate Court.
The goat, which had been a gift for Powers' grandson and was named Bailey, was on a leash attached to a tree in her front yard. Powers said the small white-and-gray goat wore a pink collar.
Three people who were with Powers told the deputy they had been inside Thompson's home and had seen the goat and it was dead. They had learned of the goat's whereabouts from an acquaintance who was in Thompson's home and called.
Two of the three went to Thompson's home to look for the goat and found the front door open. They went inside the house, and one went into the middle bedroom where she found Thompson in a bra and woman's panties standing three feet from the goat's body.
Thompson ran out of the house wearing only a muscle shirt and thong underwear.
Cpl. M.B. Cummings and Sgt. R.P. Boone went to the Greenview Road home to help Shackelford with the investigation. Thompson came down from the hillside while deputies were at his home. He was immediately taken into custody.
"He told the deputies out there that he had been high on bath salts and wasn't in his right mind," Snuffer said.
"They knew who he was when the call came out," he said. "They've dealt with him before."
He said the man is mentally unstable and lives with another person who is not always home. Snuffer said deputies were concerned for the man's health and contacted Adult Protective Services.
The detective said the goat had a single stab wound. The body was taken to a veterinarian to determine the cause of death and whether it had been sexually assaulted.
Neighbors told deputies they were concerned about the safety of their neighborhood with Thompson still living nearby.
Thompson has been charged with felony animal cruelty and is being held at South Central Regional Jail on $50,000 bond.
I thought that this was a story about Keith Olbermann.
I’m sure there will a completely reasonable explanation for all of this.
>>> Man arrested after being found standing over goat, wearing women’s underwear
What the goat was doing wearing women’s underwear I’ll never know.
The lesson here is that if you're all jacked up on drugs
killing goats and cross dressing, don't be inviting guests
over to the house. Wait until later, invite 'em for barbecued cabrito.
...high on bath salts????
I feel much better about my life after reading this.
It's a relatively recent trend. A lot of States have banned or are considering bans on certain types of bath salts.
Calgon, take him away!!
Obama’s Rainbow Task Force is now missing a member...
You should have posted that on your blog.
You could build a thousand bridges and they would never call you a bridge builder, but if you bang just one goat....
“The Silence of the Goat”
A goat in underwear...now I've heard *everything!*
They have nothing to do with real bath salts, but I wouldn't be surprised to see the rocket scientists in Washington or state capitals to make real bath salts illegals because of this.
From my understanding, bath salts are a new, “legal” high. I’ve gotten information from our schools concerning them. Strange, huh? Use to be you would just take a nice, hot bath and soak away your troubles. Some youth are eating them/smoking them to get a high.
He is warped, bent, broke, his elevator doesn't go all the way to the top!
We should be thankful it was a goat, not someone's little son or daughter.
His momma and daddy must be so proud.

“Yeah, this one time, I was having sex with my girlfriend and her mother walks up. But she didn’t say a thing! Ha ha... Well, actually she did. She said; ‘baaaaa’.”
Bath salts? No more baths for me!
This reminds me of a joke with the punchline “You know, a good sheep’ll do that.”
“Deputies had dealt with the man before and believe him to be mentally unstable.”
Why... next thing you know they’ll say that being homosexual or a transvestite is a mental disease. Preposterous!
“When one tolerates bad behavior, that is what one can expect.” I don’t know who exactly said this, but I live by this code.
I will NOT engage in any tolerance of lousy behavior at all.
I don’t have to.
Gah! Lookit that mug!
It must be a sign of the times that I tried to discern from the story what the goat’s sex was. “Bailey,” is that for sure a girl name?
I mean, are we talking about homonecrocapraphilia or only plain ole heteronecrocapraphilia?
My head, it huuuuuuuurrrrrrrrrrrrrtz.
A little Proactive and some men’s clothing and he could have gotten a human female to go out with him.
“he had been high on bath salts for the last three days, said Cpl. Sean Snuffer”
Walking, talking jokes of both sides of the badge.
It’s not really bath salts, it some kind of synthetic drug that is not yet illegal. It’s sold in drug paraphernalia stores in jars, labeled bath salts. They say that the customers are usually older, 40 somethings who don’t have the contacts to buy street drugs.
With a resume like that, he should move to San Francisco. They’d elect him to the city council.
Geez. Just when you think there can’t be anything worse. A guy wearing women’s underwear having sex with a dead goat. Folks, we have the winner of THE SICKEST SON-OF-A-BITCH IN THE WORLD AWARD. Now, they’ll have to have a program in this at the universities and they’ll have to have a Dead-Goat-F_cker Advocate on every campus just to be sure they’re politically correct.
The goat will need years of therapy.
It's dead. Maybe not.
You, sir, are a great American!
Is...Bath Salts? Going to become the new...Thailand? On FR?? LOL
It is both dead and alive until you observe it and it then becomes one state or the other.
Uh... Um... Hi Slings! :-)
There are three possible quantum states: Live, Dead, and Bloody Annoyed At Being Stuffed Into A Box.
The last one can be horribly dangerous if it involves a cat.
That’s the nicest thing I have been called in quite a while!
Looks like a meth head.
Now, just wait a second.
I thought they said bin Laden was *dead*...
Re: A Rebuttal
Wow. There truly is a graphic for EVERYTHING. You, sir, are a Master of the Interwebs.
I would bow to your mad skilz but I fear someone might choose the moment to park their bicycle. So just go have yourself a blessed day, m’kay?
>>> “A little Proactive and some mens clothing and he could have gotten a human female to go out with him.”
I dunno, that’s a proposition my delicate ego would have a hard time with.
Don’t wanna be seen with ‘im, don’t wanna lose out to what could be his first preference. Y’know whut Ahm sayin?
