'You gotta tell that judge that I have to be locked up forever. I just gotta."
Those are the words of Alexander Dean McLean, according to a psychiatric assessment found in his file at Nova Scotia Supreme court.
That assessment is a chronicle of a tortured and disturbed life including Satanic cults and blood sacrifice. He is the victim of rape, and himself a perpetrator of sexual violence.
On Wednesday, McLean appeared briefly in Nova Scotia Supreme Court. His hair is now long and drops onto the shoulders of his brown leather jacket.
Even in his teenage years, there was a clear pattern of problems. At 16, he was admitted for the first time to the Nova Scotia Hospital.
In the 1970s, there was Satanic worship. Past psychological reports describe some details of the cult: cats were killed, their blood drained for ritual sacrifice; the throat of a German shepherd slit with a dagger and its blood put in a goblet.
According to one report from 1996, the assessment says, the cult "worshiped a 'blood is power' philosophy," openly abused women.
McLean reported he eventually left the cult after there was talk of sacrificing a baby.
