Son kills mother over claim KKK beat him

Suspect had grown tired of being called a liar

MILLERSVILLE, Md. - A 911 call brought police to a house in the 8200 block of Daniels Purchase Way in Millersville on Saturday.
    
A call claiming 23-year-old Torian Mack had telephoned a friend after beating his mother unconscious.

"They noticed around the slider what appeared to be blood, on the floor near the rear slider,” said Lt. Ryan Frashure of the Anne Arundel County Police Department, “As they were investigating that, an individual later identified as Torian Mack presented himself to the officers and made an unsolicited statement that he had assaulted his mother."
    
According to charging documents, Mack was covered in blood and later told officers his mother had called him a liar after he told her he had been beaten up by the KKK, so he wanted to show her “what it was like to get beat by four or five grown men”.

"They were able to go inside (and) locate his mother who was suffering from a very violent attack---trauma that appeared to be from a very violent attack," said Frashure.
    
Mack went on to say that he didn't want the officer to think he was evil, since he spent 15 to 30 minutes performing CPR on his dying mother following the beating to no avail.
    
Police sent the body of 53-year-old Rhonda Dickerson-Mack to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner with multiple injuries to the face and neck, inflicted by a son who also told police he was a black belt in martial arts and his mother knew what was coming in the moments before he beat her to death.

"At this point, it doesn't seem like there were any type of weapons used,” said Frashure, “It seems to be a very violent, physical assault where just his hands and fists were used.  So very tragic and our thoughts and prayers go out to the family."

Mack also faced felony charges four years ago after setting a home on fire that was still under construction in Severn, but he received probation before judgement after serving 85 days behind bars.
