Jeffrey AllenBURLINGTON, Ky. —Three men charged with torturing, kidnapping, killing and dismembering a 19-year-old alleged drug dealer told deputies they wanted to “rid the world of the evil in it.”

On Sunday, the sister of 19-year-old Daniel Delfin called authorities to report him missing. While police where investigating the suspected heroin dealer’s whereabouts, they received a tip that three men, Jeffrey Allen, 21, Anthony Baumgartner, 23, and Stephen Harkness, 22, had murdered Delfin.

The men were picked up by police and brought in for questioning. After a little while, all three of the former Marines began talking and told police what had happened to the missing teen, and why. The trio admitted they had murdered Delfin because the teen was a drug dealer and they were trying to rid the world of evil.

“They were going to rid the world, perhaps one person at a time, of the evil in it,” said Tom Scheben, a spokesman for the Boone County Sheriff’s office. According to Scheben, the men had been planning to kidnap and kill a drug dealer then continue to move up the chain in a DEATH WISH fashion.

“They would continue to go down the line of finding the drug dealers and assaulting them and gathering information out of them to continue to go up the ladder,” Detective Jeremy Rosing said.

Allen chose Delfin because he was a known drug dealer in the area and was on probation after being convicted of selling heroin near Walton-Verona High School. The plan was to force Delfin to reveal the name of his supplier before killing him, then go after the supplier.

So on Jan 9, the three men picked up Delfin at his home pretending to be potential customers. Harkness drove with Baumgartner in the passenger seat. Allen was in the back with Delfin when he “proceeded to physically assault Daniel Delfin with his fist, choking and with a metal bar,” Det. Rosing said.

“He continued to assault Daniel through the drive as Daniel was fighting to get away, asking him who he was, why this was happening, kicking the windows and kicking the doors open at which time they kept him inside the car.”

By time they got to a field near the home of Allen’s mother, Delfin was unconscious and snoring as if he was suffering from a severe head injury. The men pulled Delfin out of the car and beat on him some more.

“Mr. Allen slit his throat and stabbed him underneath the rib cage up into the heart and twisted the knife and pulled out,” Det. Rosing stated.

“They bound Mr. Delfin and then drug him back into the field at which time they rolled the body down the hill, and placed him in a bunch of brush and covered his body and then left.”

Over the next several days, the men would return to the field to dismember Delfin’s with a machete, and possibly a reciprocating saw. Allen said Delfin’s legs and torso was still in the field but that his head, feet and arms were tossed in a dumpster behind a Super 8 Motel.

Police went out to the field and found Delfin’s torso, just as Allen said they would, but the body parts that were disposed of in the dumpster have yet to be recovered. Investigators do not need the missing body parts to make a positive identification as the torso had a tattoo Delfin was known to have, but had hoped to recover Delfin’s entire body to help provide some closure for his family.

All three suspects have been charged with murder, kidnapping, abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence. They are being held at the Boone County Jail without bail and are all facing the death penalty.

    I think they killed Sid The Sloth from Ice Age by mistake.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Looks like this lynch mob didn’t see murder as evil. They will certainly find enough evil in prison to keep them busy.

  • AliceinChainsman =]

    I really dont see anything wrong with what they did other than getting caught..or getting the money from the dealer up higher on the ladder.

  • AliceinChainsman =]


  • AliceinChainsman =]

    they did Society a favor..I think mob to earn such Qualifications needs Five members..

  • brandi

    “RID THE WORLD OF EVIL” if i had a penny for every time i saw that on this site…..

  • Andyman

    I think this is where the cliche two wrongs don’t make a right comes in.

  • Evan Oswald

    how so? What if they killed him because he liked alice in chains?

  • I don’t know about you guys but I started cheering when I saw the title.

  • scud420

    jeeez, why do we even have courts, or police when we can just let guys with SS neck tatoos do the job for free?

  • Evan Oswald

    again, genius, how did they do society a favor?

  • 18th40

    Exactly, I mean what could possibly go wrong.

  • Those lightning bolts on Baumgartner’s neck are Nazi symbols. Wonder if the other two had Aryan ties and if that had anything to do with their motives?

  • greater good…so they get a pass from me

  • The world needs less shit like Delfin (and less people that look like the
    sloth from Ice Age). Give them them the key to the city, one that works
    on the inner city parts hopefully.

  • Wow, this one is close to home, like, my effing back yard. I live in Burlington KY, and the Boone county jail is literally 1/2 a mile up on the very same road that is outside my kitchen window. And to think that Monday morning my twins went to school and left the front door hanging wide open, with me, my 8year old daughter and 3 year old son all laying in our beds, sleeping.

  • kimbev69

    Maybe they should have started with pedophiles

  • Evan Oswald

    pssh. c’mon!

  • JohnQknowitall

    Well… I cannot find a definition of a mob that says 5 members minimum, but most say group and groups do not require 5 members. BUT I will give you that and call them “a trio of unconstitionally self appointed saviors of society.” Doing society a favor, in my not so humble opinion, generally means obeying the laws in place by the larger population.

  • Evan Oswald

    or themselves

  • kimbev69

    I cannot believe so many on here think this is ok? Them being so young and being “former” marines says alot about them to me, they used the drug dealer angle as an excuse to kill some 19 yr old kid in my opinion

  • daMonBrooks

    Underdeveloped brains conditioned to feel superior and violent.

  • 18th40

    Was the door left open so you……COULD SELL DRUGS ?? Hmmmmm ?

  • Gee

    Yep… I am pretty sure I am not OK with these three half wits deciding who should die and who lives.

  • 18th40

    I wouldn’t be ok with these three deciding on a pizza.

  • Buffettgirl

    Redneck Mafia?

  • Are you trying to get me killed? Lol… If I decided to sell drugs, I’d have a pretty good cover, since I also operate a licensed commercial bakery from my home, too. Just pack the drugs in cupcakes 😉 I wouldn’t touch meth or heroine or pills, nothing but good homegrown.

  • creamofflicka

    If one person does it, they’re just crazy. If 2 people do it in harmony, people will think they’re a couple of faggots. If 3 people do it, its an organization. But if 50 people do it becomes a movement. Arlo G. never mentioned 5 people. But I’m going to say the 5 isn’t a mob if 3 makes an organization…. I mean at 3 they’re already organized. Are 2 extra people going to ruin that just by being there?

  • OutOfBubbleGum

    Has the USMC motto of “Leave no man behind” been tested in a prison shower?

  • daMonBrooks


  • Some of us are not ok with this. Their limited mental capacity brought them to the decision that this was a good idea. Redneck neo nazi’s deciding whom should live or die is not my picture of a eutopia.

  • Wildheart

    The world does need less shit like Delfin… also needs less shit like these Nazi-wannabe fucktards. Former Marines?? They are a disgrace.

  • Evan Oswald

    this was terrible. This guy might have been selling an illegal product, but unless he was selling to minors or ripping people off……i don’t see how this guy deserved anything but to be eventually caught by police. Oh wait, he already did get caught and was going to serve his time. Who even knows if he was STILL SELLING????

  • kimbev69

    Oh i know, my comment was to these that posted what a great idea this was so weird

  • come_and_see

    Would this work in the movies? Yes, real life — no.

  • kimbev69

    I think they were customers of his and robbed him, no dealer is going to get in a car with three strangers i just dont buy their excuse

  • Evangelos

    Absolutely horrible. While dealing is a pretty wretched act in itself, these three idiots are obvious a few tacos short of a combination plate. How many horrible acts throughout history were committed because the perpetrators where… “Ridding the world of Evil”. I’m pretty sure every dictator, Klansman, ethnic cleanser, and lynch mob felt the same.

    On a lighter note; WTF is up with everyone wearing glasses at their hearings? Being a four eyes (I have glasses that I NEED since I don’t have echolocation) isn’t a magic “konami code” of murder/manslaughter trials. Makes me kinda laugh that defense attorneys still think this a viable tactic. (hipster sociopath says “I wore glasses to my sentencing BEFORE it was cool” rofl). If I was a Juror and I saw someone wearing glasses without the hard to fake motions (cleaning, pushing them up, pinching their nose where the little indentations are, squinting horridly when they’re off, etc) someone who actually needs them develops (or paper thin lenses) I’d even think they were MORE guilty.

  • newstarshipsmell

    I dunno, but these three are certainly outstanding M.A.R.I.N.E. exemplars.

  • GGMon

    They should have used their powers to get rid of pedophiles. THAT’S the real evil in this world

  • LeaveMeBe

    AIC! *high five* Back and already stirring shit up again, I see. 🙂

  • LeaveMeBe

    I don’t think these three were organized at all. Jus’ sayin’.

  • LeaveMeBe

    But they look like such NICE boys.

  • G.I.R.L.

    It’s always the guys from the service that frighten me. Drug dealers are historically pussies. Marines, well everyone looks to them as heroes; not a very heroic move. I mean, dismembering the body? That’s a bit much. They were the evil ones, the drug dealer was just young and stupid and didn’t deserve this.

  • G.I.R.L.

    They didn’t do society shit. Soon they’d start killing black men for dating white chicks and Jewish men because they killed Jesus. If they wanted to be heroes, take one out of Superman’s book: don’t fucking kill!

    Furthermore, I’m sure John’s mob comment wasn’t meant to be taken into serious account; just a figure of speech to show how twisted and uni-brained these murders are.

  • G.I.R.L.

    I’m pretty sure drugs are not as evil as killing and then using a baloney excuse to justify the killing.

  • alphatroll

    I hope that Nazi neck tattoo either happened after he got out of the Corps, or it earned him a dishonorable discharge. No excuse for that shit in the service, and no excuse for any superiors who tolerate it either.

  • techsupp0rt

    Someone needs to drag these folks behind a truck.

    Remember, folks. Just because you enlist, and even if you go to war, that does not make you a hero. You are just as capable of being a worthless fuck-up when you get back as you were before you went.

  • nowitzki41

    a 19year old kid whos selling herion in school zones. your comment makes him seem like he was a good and innocent guy. he’s an inbred looking man who is already known to police in his teens. not saying he deserved it, but he wasnt a boy scout going door to door selling popcorn .

  • kimbev69

    Where did i say he was innocent? And he wasnt sitting on a corner outside the school selling to little kids but was caught in a school zone which if you think about it depending on the cop who pulled him over, he could have just waited to pull him over in a school zone to deepen the charges
    He was fucking 19 and did not deserve this, sounds like u know some addicts and blame the dealers for getting them addicted. Sorry its a persons choice to have given this 19 yr old a “job”

  • JGo555

    I would start with ChiMos and Rapists but I guess the fuckers were too lazy to do their homework.

  • t0ofly

    hey this isnt CNN

  • We live close to each other then. They discarded him in dumpsters less than 500 ft from my front door.

  • Icky. I am in Burlington, on the city line with Hebron. Half mile from jail. I heard it was the super 8 on dream street in Florence? Is that right?

  • Frybread

    It’s those low set radar ears again, listening to Satan telling them stuff again.

  • Sorry, yes, that’s right.

  • HI NEIGHBOR!! lol Your’re a girl, right? We should meet in some public place and get a coffee, and talk about how effed up the world is, and how cool LOTR is 😉

  • disqus_booh70CiSa

    Wow, I went to MOS school in the Marine Corps with Harkness. Crazy shit.

  • katlyn starks

    Why is everyone sayin they were all in the marine. Setting the record straight. only jeff was a marine and he was the one who killed Daniel.

  • Truthful95

    Y’all are so sick! I grew up and knew this person and you guys don’t have enough respect to keep your mouth shut. What happen if this was your kid? never thought of that huh? Murder is so wrost. People know what there getting into with drugs it’s not all his fault.

  • Truthful95

    Maybe we need less heartless people like you.

  • Truthful95

    No all three of them we in it. Not just ones fault they knew about it and joined it.
