"I Just Stabbed a Man": Suspect in Homeless Slaying
NBC Miami ^ | Tuesday, Dec 4, 2012 | Karen Franklin

Stabile, 23, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder in the death of 42-year-old Bradley Suessine in Deerfield Beach, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office.

Authorities say the suspect charged with killing a homeless man in a Deerfield Beach alley confessed to the crime in a 911 call released Tuesday.

“Um, alright I’m on psychotic medications,” the caller, identified by the Broward Sheriff's Office as John Stabile, tells an operator in the call. “Um, I just stabbed a homeless man.”

Stabile, 23, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder in the death of 42-year-old Bradley Suessine in Deerfield Beach Saturday, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office.

When deputies responded to the 2000 block of North Ocean Drive, Stabile was sitting on a street curb with a weapon in his waistband, the agency said. He had waited for Suessine to die before calling to report the murder, the BSO added.

“I don’t know if he’s dead or not,” Stabile said in the call.

Later in the conversation, he told the operator he had “some psychotic issues” and last took medication last night.

“I’ve been on psych meds for three years,” he said.

The call ended when authorities apprehended him.

Earlier this week, the man’s father, Richard Stabile, told NBC 6 South Florida that his son suffers from paranoid schizophrenia, manic depressive disorder and bipolar disorder, and committed the crime because he wanted to be put away in jail.

"I never saw him smile his entire life except when he was in Little League playing tee ball," he said in tears. "If he came home, I could've had him. I would've had him. This might not have happened."

But, he told NBC 6, his son didn’t get the help he should have.

"He is not the devil," he said. "He's a sick guy that didn't get the level of help he needed."

Richard Stabile said a crisis counselor from Henderson Behavioral Health, where his son was a patient, came to his home days before the alleged murder. The counselor left two hours later and said the 23-year-old just needed to relax, according to the father.

Henderson Behavioral Health did not respond to calls from NBC 6 South Florida Monday.

"It's an indictment on the mental health system in South Florida. Shame on them," the father said. "No one had to lose their life for this kid to get the help he needs.”

Just a scam to hope to get off the charge.

If you pretend to be psychotic for three years, just so you can try to use that to get off for killing a random homeless guy... you’re probably crazy anyway.

Psychology/psychiatry - softest of the soft sciences. Made even more ineffectual by being part of Big Government which takes over and then does little which is productive.

Some people are crazy and that is just that. Leaving the insane to medicate themselves is sometimes an exercise in futility which only an Agency could justify as a “solution”.

However, it allows the taxpayer to be billed for a huge number of middle class “soft science professionals” - welfare for the middle class so that Starbucks Coffee doesn’t have to hire all of them.

An observation: many of the leftover college deferment professional student crowd were psych or sociology majors when I got to college. There were no answers in the budding field of Sociology, and there were lots of studies done which inevitably led to either more studies or the conclusion we needed sociologists telling us how to live.

Of the Psych majors, well over half of those I spoke with were 'in it to get their own head straight'. I only spoke with one whom I considered relatively 'normal', and one of the great sports we had was watching the Abnormal Psych class students go through the progression of symptoms as they went chapter by chapter through the more notable disorders...(from a safe distance, of course).

I guess there are hopeless incompetents in every profession.

Well, if they don’t demonstrate a propensity to harm themselves or others ahead of time, what else can we do? I don’t want the government inspecting our mental health and forcing us into treatment against our wills. That quickly leads to Soviet-style reeducation and persecution of dissidents.
