    Very sad story. I hope this religious fanatic gets some real psychological help in prison, because he badly needs it.

  • Southstguy

    And of course you had to use a shirtless photo of the murderer. Keep it classy, gay media.

  • Xzamilio

    A dangerous mix of religion and mental illness. Although, as one who has read the bible in full, there are some books (mainly the book of Revelation) that read like the ramblings of a mad man. I definitely concur that he needs some help,though.

  • readycarlos

    Psychopath. Deserves to be in prison so that he cannot harm anyone else.

  • Bob LaBlah

    This guy wasted no time getting his insanity defense into play once he killed his lover. What I would like to know is whose name was on the lease. A lot of domestic violence assaults in NYC begin when one party tells the other party “I want you out of MY house immediately” and realize they do not have a leg to stand on once the police arrive.

    Posting shirtless pics on his website at the last minute can only mean he knew it was now or never because he can’t do that from prison.

  • Richpontone

    I am definitely no Bible Thumper, and refuse to go to any Church service, but you can’t blame this on Religion.
    Yes, this guy has gotten the Insanity Defense down perfectly. I am no Doctor Freud, but it looks like untreated Paranoid Schziphrenia.
    The tip off here, is that he thinks he is God. Probably, a lot of these cases in The Old Testament.

  • Stache

    Sounds like someone’s getting a head start on the insanity defense.

  • charlie_jackpot

    I agree – posting a topless picture of him adds to the glamorizing of murderers, it really wasn’t needed

  • JayneEyre

    For those of you complaining about the use of a shirtless photo of the murderer. read the above again. HE posted shirtless photos of himself after the murder. There’s a strong chance they used one that he posted.


    Damn. It’s always the hot ones SMH

  • Bob LaBlah

    @charlie_jackpot: It sure as hell will help the prosecutor when he describes him as a hopelessly narcissistic ass to the jury. He was insane, knew the police would soon arrest him for murder but he deiced to post shirtless, revealing (he looks well endowed) pics of himself online? He will do no less than twenty before being considered for parole.

  • BriBri

    Now Bubba will be his god. Good riddance.

  • Dave Downunder

    I know it doesn’t mention drugs in the article but I would love to see the results of a tox screen on this guy. This sounds like it could be meth induced delusions and paranoia.

  • Doughosier

    Of course a guy who looks like that has a boyfriend, even if he’s stark raving bananas.

  • Ogre Magi

    It figures that he is a christian

  • Brian

    Scum-bag Bellamy should rot in a mental institution.

  • BeachBum

    Damn. I know this dude. He performed in Boca and we met. Hung out. He has a YouTube channel called WalkingWater and a blog a few years ago. I wouldn’t say he’s religious as much as spiritual, but I guess I didn’t really know him at all. Jesus I’m so sorry and shocked.

  • He BGB

    Isn’t that how it goes? The ones with the muscular bodies have ugly faces that could stop a clock.

  • JerseyMike

    Crazy don’t just show up.. that ish has been there all along. Stop ignoring it people. We see a nice physical package and don’t want to see nothing else. When someone shows you who they are believe them. I am so sorry that this happen to Bernardo. I refuse to believe that this was their first violent encounter. Real love don’t hurt.

  • Chris

    WTF! Well, many people with mental illnesses hear voices and have delusions. But this guy seems too cogent and purposeful for me to believe that it’s anything but an act.

  • mz.sam

    Whoa…this crazy Christian pathetic killer has got one helluva juicy knee-slapper!
