When the officers encountered the suspect, later identified as 35-year-old Bradley Adam Dimmick, he allegedly told police, “I just killed somebody,” according to KENS.

Dimmick provided police with an address blocks away, and when they arrived at the home, officers discovered blood and a dead dog inside the front door, officials said.

Officers also located a decapitated human body with a “large stomach wound” in the home's living room.

Authorities said the dog also had a large stomach wound and said “both of these wounds had intestines extruding from their bodies."
