The state will have to set free a man who’s responsible for one of the most chilling crimes in recent history. After Loren Huss killed his girlfriend in 1986, prosecutors agreed the scene was grisly…he’d raped the woman, gouged her eyes out, bitten off her nose…and doctors agreed Huss was delusional, psychotic, out of touch with reality in the manic phase of a serious case of bipolar disorder. He was convicted of first-degree murder, then granted a new trial and found not guilty by reason of insanity four years ago. Despite efforts to declare him sexually violent and likely to hurt someone else, a Polk County jury on Wednesday ruled the state didn’t prove that, and must set Huss free.
