An Ohio man says that he had to decapitate his adoptive mother because the Holy Spirit told him “she was the devil.”
Lionel Gore certainly lived up to his last name as he was arrested in West Virginia for allegedly killing his adoptive mother, sawing her head off, and setting her on fire because he said the Holy Spirit told him she was the devil.
The Marietta Times reports that Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies, the Grandview Township Fire Department, detectives, and the state fire marshal responded to Diane Gore’s home at 130 Cemetery Drive in New Matamoras around on Nov. 5 at approximately 6:20 p.m. for a report of a structure fire.
According to WJW-TV, Diane’s sister, Stephanie Williams, came home and allegedly witnessed the suspect, Lionel Gore, covered in blood, running outside, and yelling, “Get out of the way or I’ll kill you next.” Diane reportedly tried entering the home but was stopped by the flames. Lionel reportedly fled the scene by car.
WJW reports Lionel’s 6-year-old nephew told detectives he witnessed his uncle sawing Diane’s neck with a knife before setting the residence on fire. The boy was able to escape the smoke by crawling out of the house, WJW reports.
According to the Marietta Times, the boy said Lionel started using a smaller knife but then switched to a larger one to decapitate his mother. Firefighters reportedly found her body in what is believed to be the home’s master bedroom.
The Marietta Times reports Lionel got into a car chase with the Wetzel County Sheriff’s Office and struck two deputy vehicles. He was transported to a Wetzel County Hospital in West Virginia.
At the hospital, Lionel reportedly told detectives that he was adopted and that Diane wasn’t his mother. Citing an affidavit, the Marietta Times says Lionel told investigators, “I cut her head off and set her on fire.” He reportedly said that the Holy Spirit told him to commit the crime because she was the devil.
Lionel was booked into the Wetzel County Jail on charges resulting from the car chase.
The Marietta Times says Grandview firefighters were able to find Diane’s decapitated body in a bedroom, and her head was reportedly lying beside her torso.
Washington County Prosecutor Nicole Coil told the Marietta Times, “He’s likely looking at murder, arson, and child endangering charges.”
According to the Marietta Times, Chief Deputy Mark Warden said a preliminary report is out on Lionel. While in Wetzel County, he reportedly broke into a house and kidnapped a girl.
In an update to the original story, the Marietta Times reported on Wednesday, Nov. 17, that Lionel Justin Gore, 34, will face murder charges.

He is the one who has problems. No spirit told him anything. He must have been on high drugs That poor woman was murdered indeed. And thesecond poor kids will have to have canceling. 34 year old Gore is crazy and has lost it. Don’t let him roam outside again. He’s evil.
Yes! I agree completely.
COULD THE HOLY SPIRIT SENTENCE GORE TO PRISON ALSO? or or just cut his head half off so he can see whats happening — lol
Never let a good deed go unpunished!!!
Another Lizzy Borden needs to visit and give him at least forty whacks.
What a great ad for going to an animal shelter and adopting a pet.
This country keeps going lower and lower. Stupid things like this just make things worse for churches to get people in. What a disgrace this is. It make me wonder what is going to happen next. GOD bless this family and especially this young boy that witnessed this horrible tragedy.
Dear mom thanks for adopting me and raising me, but I am still pi$$ed that you wouldn’t allow me to go to the prom, here ‘s your reward, your loving son
When installing Joomla on my computer in order to update a preexisting site, do I need my client to give me the Host Name, MySQL User Name, MySQL Password, MySQL Database NAme and MySQL Table Prefix? I already have their FTP information, and the Joomla admin control panel login information..
I have a MacBook computer and I want my pictures that are on my computer to be on my Motorola Razr 2 v9. I have a memory card and a memory card adapter. When I put the card in the adapter, the computer recognizes it. And the pictures that I have on my phone can transfer to the computer with no problem. But the pictures on my computer won’t transfer to my phone. All that shows up is a big red “x” on a black screen. Am I doing something wrong? The phone company is AT&T..
