Man in devil mask allegedly killed girlfriend and sister, wore innards around neck

An illegal immigrant in a red devil mask butchered his girlfriend and her sister in Louisiana, wrapping the innards of one of his victims around his neck, authorities and a witness said.

Oscar Urias, 23, is accused of killing his 31-year-old girlfriend, Elizabeth Tornabene, and her 15-year-old sister in a vicious onslaught that sheriff officials said started Sunday at a home in LaPlace when an argument broke out between Urias and Tornabene, NOLA.com reported.

After the pair went into a bedroom, Tornabene came out moments later and was followed by the mask-wearing Urias —  who began stabbing the woman with a pair of knives, St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff Mike Tregre said.

When they tried to intervene, Urias turned his rage to his own siblings, a 15-year-old brother and 17-year-old sister who were visiting Urias from Baton Rouge, Tregre said.

“His little brother and sister tried to stop him, and he turned on them and stabbed them,” the sheriff said.

Urias then chased his brother and Tornabene’s sister from the home, ultimately catching up to her inside a garage down the street where he fatally stabbed her — as a homeowner desperately tried to keep him outside as he tried to bust in, NOLA.com reported.

“I knew I couldn’t let him in here,” the homeowner said, adding that he saw a “machete” in Urias’ hand and heard the teen’s final moments.

“I know what he was doing,” the 63-year-old man said. “The last thing I heard her say was, ‘You’re gonna kill me.’”

The homeowner spotted Urias leaving his garage with parts of the girl’s innards around his neck, with other remains later recovered from his driveway, he said.

“I looked him in his eyes,” the man recalled. “He looked like the devil.”

Urias, an El Salvador native who was in the US illegally, is facing two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted first-degree murder. He has confessed to the slayings, Tregre said.

Tornabene started caring for her 15-year-old sister, Hattie, full-time last year, Tornabene’s father told NOLA.com Tuesday.

Urias’ sister, 17, was in critical condition Monday at a hospital in New Orleans, while his 15-year-old brother was treated and released on Sunday, the outlet reported.

“This was a vicious attack,” Tregre said. “This is probably the top, worst that I’ve seen in my 32 years of law enforcement.”

Urias, meanwhile, was transferred Tuesday to state corrections facility. It’s unclear what may have prompted the attack.
