Florida man dumps dead animals at Parkland memorial, now arrested

A school shooting-obsessed Florida man with bizarre skeleton-like facial tattoos was busted for dumping dead animals at a memorial for victims of the Parkland massacre, authorities said Friday.

Robert Mondragon, 29 — whose ink mimics that of a mass shooter from the TV show “American Horror Story” — allegedly left a mutilated duck in the memorial garden at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on July 20, officials told Fox News.

Mondragon — who also sports a wild, Flock of Seagulls-style mullet in his creepy mugshot — allegedly then returned to dump a dead raccoon and possum at the shrine, the station reported.

When Mondragon was pulled over on July 31 for illegally tinting the windows of his white Nissan,  the officer allegedly saw bird feathers and blood splattered across the passenger side floorboard, police said.

“Mondragon told the deputy he had the dead bird in his car because he likes ‘the metal and blood smell that emit from the dead animal,’” according to a police report.

An investigation later revealed Mondragon allegedly posing with the dead animals on his phone, along with footage of his car near the memorial.

The probe also revealed that Mondragon’s tattoos may be a nod to Tate Langdon’s facial skull makeup in the TV series “American Horror Story,” though it looks more akin to a zombie raccoon on Mondragon.

A school crossing guard first noticed a duck with its gut sliced open on a bench at the memorial on July 20, and a raccoon was found there the next day. The dead opossum was spotted there 10 days later, police said.

The alleged animal corpse dumping came just days after the death penalty trial for Nikolas Cruz, who gunned down 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School 2018,  began on July 18.

Mondragon was arrested on three counts of disfiguring a monument and held without bond, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.

He was first arrested on Aug. 4 for violating the terms of his probation for previous charges of battery and indecent exposure, according to Fox News.
