Driver BLAMED Uber App for Half Dozen Murders Claimed It ‘Literally Took Over’ His Body

An insanity defense right out of One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. Any jury who buys this ought to be charged as accomplices…

A man charged with killing six people in a series of shootings in southwestern Michigan told investigators he was being controlled by an Uber app through his cellphone, police said on Monday.

Authorities have said he carried out the shootings in between driving for Uber.

Jason Dalton told authorities, ‘it feels like it is coming from the phone itself and he didn’t know how to describe that’, according to the report released Monday.

Dalton is charged with murder and attempted murder in the Kalamazoo-area shootings that took place on February 20 outside an apartment complex, a restaurant and at a car lot. Two people survived.

Police said in the report Dalton said ‘he is not a killer and he knows that he has killed’.

Dalton, who was a relatively new driver with Uber when the incident occurred, said the app controlled him like an artificial presence, which would switch from black to red.

When it switched back to black, ‘Dalton got his presence back’, police reports said, according to WZZM.

He told police that when he pressed a button on the app’s screen a devil head and the Eastern Star symbol – a colored, five-point star – would pop up, WOOD reported.

Well, readers? Do you believe this guy got commands from Beelzebub through the Uber app? Or is he just one of the more creative serial killers we’ve had?
