DECATUR, Ga. (WTVR) – Police say a Georgia man used samurai swords to kill his elderly parents.

WSB reports that a family member made the gruesome discovery Thursday afternoon after finding the 75-year-old and the 73-year-old fatally stabbed to death in a bedroom.

Police said the couple’s son, 39-year-old Calvin Ray Jr.,  used samurai swords to kill them.

“I thought this person was locked up in jail,” neighbor Dorothy Watkins told WSB. “I thought he was going to be incarcerated for a while.”

Investigators think the convicted felon, who was released from prison in December 2011 after serving time for aggravated assault and a weapons charge, drove off in one of his parent’s cars.

“It’s a very, very sad scene inside but fortunately we were able to apprehend this suspect before he got too far into the community,” Deputy Chief Cedric Alexander said.

Police arrested Ray at a park not far from their home.

      Good Grief manalishi. You make stupid remarks 24/7 on this website. Don’t you have a life? Are you confined to a chair and computer? If you have insurance you can seek psychiatric help.

      At least Athynz finally got a job, or was discovered by his employer that he was incessantly seeking attention on the internet, or found another hobby.

      Are you related to Becky?

      Now let’s hear your typically juvenile comeback.

        Now David, you know Obozocare doesn’t cover working people and i only log in from your mom’s computer (kindly tell her I want my underware back). Must be tough to be so insignificant that you feel the need to peck at all that do not tolerate democrat trash and troll the scene for rebuttals.

        You forgot to wipe your chin.

        David, you pretentious duality is busted again. Change your logo as you wish. you’ll make someone a fine woman when you grow up.

      • athynz

        I’m still in your head boy. Along with manalishi, roger, and a lot of empty echoing space. And you still are unable to make a comment on topic. Why is that? Why can’t you do anything more than create various screen names to troll people on here? Dude go get a girlfriend (or a boyfriend depending on your tendencies), get a job, and stop trolling.

      Were they assault katanas? Will Dianne Feinstein propose legislation to get those horrible assault katanas off the streets? After all they were made for one purpose – to kill. No one needs more than one katana.

  • Cindy

    This was one of the saddest stories ever posted. This man needs the harshest punishment Georgia law will allow. He is the devil’s slime of the Earth! Glad he was caught and never to be released!

    What a sick, twisted, evil individual.

    Instead of giving him the death penalty, he should be put in a cell with the gruesome pictures of his dead parents plastered on the walls.

    Such senseless violence is way beyond my comprehension. We are slowly, but surely, becoming a country that does not value human life.

      With all due respect Betty, you can pay for his incarceration with all those pictures. The rest of us have paid enough already.

    • athynz

      His parents paid the ultimate tragic price for his deeds – and it’s acts like this that make me a proponent of the death penalty. One does not try to rehabilitate a mad dog, one kills it swiftly as to spare it and others any more pain. This “man” is nothing more than a mad dog with edged weapons.
