There was once an unassuming young man living in Clemmons, South Carolina, with his mother.
Born in San Francisco and moved across the country during a divorce, John Algarad Lawson’s life took a deep, dark turn as he grew older.
He was seduced by the dark side of faith and turned to Satan after a bout of hardcore drugs. Afterward, he became a changed man.
The first change he made was to his name. From then on, he was legally known to all as Pazuzu Illah Algarad, naming himself after the infamous demon of the Exorcist films and Mesopotamian myth.
Algarad’s life was a spotted one of a mentally unwell man encouraged by his delusions.
This led him to live in filth, a house filled with dead animals and inhuman dirt and also led him to kill in cold blood and bury the bodies in his back yard for keeping.
He is the picture of what everyone imagines when they think of the modern Satan-worshipping maniac, and his house of evil was on a street of family homes on a suburban block just like any other.
10 The False Title
Algarad changed his name off of a false belief that he was of Iraqi descent. He pushed forward with this idea despite having no Arabic ancestry of any kind from either side of his family.
He also claimed his mother, similarly, was a devil worshipper to grant more credibility to his pastimes. But they quickly went out of control.

Algarad fashioned himself and his behavior off of Charles Manson, Anton LaVey, and Alistair Crowley. All maniacs and cultists in their different ways.
After realigning himself, he acquired multiple distracting tattoos and modified his body in other terrible ways. He split his tongue down the middle like a snake’s and filed his teeth with a tool into points.
He rarely brushed or bathed, giving him an offensive odor, and regularly talked about disturbing topics like animal slaughter and Satanic rituals.
