Handcuffed and shackled, Randal Rushing blew the awaiting media a kiss as he was led from a Wilkes-Barre apartment Thursday afternoon.
“I had fun,” the man accused of a triple homicide in Scranton said when asked whether he had killed three people.
Ten hours after a grisly discovery at his residence on South Irving Avenue — three people so badly bludgeoned that the manner of death was difficult to determine — Rushing, 25, was taken into custody just after 4 p.m. in a dramatic scene at a Wilkes-Barre apartment.
The bodies of two young men and a teenage male were discovered by authorities after a 911 call was made just before 7 a.m. Thursday from within 1604 S. Irving Ave.
Dead are Justin Berrios, 21, Dustin Hintz, 22, and Leslie Collier, 16.
Four other people were found bound, but uninjured when police arrived. They are: Berrios’ 2-year-old son, Tristan Hintz-Berrios; Samantha Hintz, 19, the child’s mother; Matthew Collier, 21; and Cynthia Collier, 43, who is the mother of Dustin and Samantha Hintz and Leslie and Matthew Collier.
