On any regular day, people in the vicinity of the Mid-City Inn – a motel in Euless, Texas – would come across Jason Alan Thornburg reading a bible or distributing religious fliers and inviting people to go to his room.
There is a biblical verse written in his Facebook profile, too. Many knew him as an ordinary friendly man of Native American descent and a good neighbor.
Those people did not realize that behind the cordial sociable façade, he hid a twisted belief in human sacrifice ritual.
Last September, his mask of benevolence fell apart when the police linked him to burnt bodies found in a dumpster miles away from the motel.
Now the police have enough evidence to charge Jason with the murders of three people whose bodies were discovered in the dumpster.
Within just a matter of days, he killed and dismembered the victims one at a time before transporting and burning the remains about 25 miles away from Mid-City Inn.
It was not immediately clear what triggered his inner killer, but he described to the police that the victims needed to be sacrificed.

Jason Alan Thornburg, a 41-year-old Navajo residing in room No. 113 at the Mid-City Inn in Euless, Texas, was arrested on September 27, 2021, in connection with the deaths of three people whose bodies were found dismembered and burnt in a dumpster in Fort Worth.
He has been charged with capital murder and held at the Tarrant County Jail on a $1 million bond.

9 /10 Trash Fire
On Wednesday, September 22, at around 6:15 a.m., the Fort Worth Fire Department responded to a report of a dumpster fire located at 3120 Bonnie Drive in Tarrant County, Texas.
Once the fire had been put out, firefighters discovered dismembered human bodies inside the dumpster. Subsequent investigation revealed there were three bodies in total; one male and two female, all adults.
Each was cut in pieces and severely burned. Somebody parts were missing. The dumpster appeared to have been recently emptied because nothing was found apart from the human remains.
