Law enforcement paid a visit to the home of Chad Moretz in Savannah, Ga., in order to query him in regards to a missing friend, but almost instantaneously found themselves in a standoff when the suspect's relative answered the door and whispered them a warning.

The relative told the SWAT team: "He's got a rifle. He's going to kill y'all," according to NBC News.

It was reportedly the fourth time in 18 months that officials had dropped by the Moretz residence. Both relatives and neighbors stated that they've witnessed him chasing his wife with a machete, threatening to kill a man with a handgun and stabbing a dog with a pocket knife.

However, none of the aforementioned incidents prepared investigators for what they'd find on Jan. 11 after the SWAT team killed the rifle-carrying Moretz upon him walking onto the front porch.

Aside from the uncleanliness, roaches and foul odors of the residence, police located a missing man's severed head and two hands concealed behind a kitchen cabinet inside a hole in the wall.

The rest of the late victim's body was allegedly dismembered by a power saw and wrapped in bags, which were discovered in a storage locker a half-hour away in South Carolina.

"I don't believe there was a motive. It wasn't a drug deal gone bad or a love triangle. Chad was just crazy," Effingham County Sheriff Office investigator David Ehsanipoor stated.

Medical examiners were able to verify that the body was of 35-year-old Charlie Ray.  Ray had been a friend of Moretz, and his family had been searching for him since the night of New Year's Eve.

An autopsy revealed more than 40 stab wounds and that he'd been deceased over a week prior to his remains being found.

Moretz's wife stated to investigators that her husband and Ray were drinking and talking, but then began arguing. She said that Moretz then grabbed a knife and repeatedly began to stab him in the kitchen.

Sandi Ray, the mother of the late victim, said that her son struggled with Tourette's syndrome. 

Megan Edgerly, who was a childhood friend of Ray, said that the brain disorder prevented him from being able to keep a job or drive.

"Charlie never had a frown on his face. He was dealt a bad hand, but always maintained a real positive attitude throughout all of it," she said.

According to The Huffington Post, Ray and his parents resided roughly 20 miles from Moretz's home.

Moretz recently moved there from southwest Florida, where violence was said to devastate his very own family. The suspect's father is set to go on trial in April for fatally shooting his mother in Naples, Fla. 18 months ago.
