Woodbury Man Inspired By ‘Dexter’ TV Series Committed
WOODBURY (AP) -- A 21-year-old Woodbury man who allegedly aspired to become a serial killer has been committed to confined psychiatric care.
Court documents say Andrew Busskohl drew his inspiration from "Dexter," the Showtime television series about a vigilante serial killer.
A Washington County judge on Friday ruled that Busskohl is considered mentally ill and dangerous.
Busskhol has been held at the Minnesota Security Hospital in St. Peter. He will be confined until a future hearing determines he is no longer dangerous.
In 2009, Busskohl was convicted in a plot in which he picked a random neighbor, stalked him and planned to stab him to death before cutting out his heart or eyelids.
As a boy in Woodbury, Busskohl received a life-saving heart transplant.
