Its been reported that Michael Brea, a some time actor on the ABC program Ugly Betty, used a Masonic Sword, like this one from Amazon, to fatally stab his 55 year old mother, Yannick Brea, while shouting bible verses and yelling repent and “…architect of the universe…”
From the NY Post
An actor who had a part in “Ugly Betty” repeatedly stabbed and killed his mother with a Freemason ceremonial sword after a bizarre religious diatribe this morning, cops said.
…”I heard a shriek and a woman yelling ‘help me’,” Vernal Bent said. “We called 911 and we kept hearing screams and then we didn’t hear them any more. Michael was chanting Biblical phrases and kept calling for Moses, Jerusalem and the ‘architect of the universe’.”
Without a doubt Brea was acting on his own and in a deranged fashion. Masonry in no way suggests or condones this practice or activity, and despite his use of weapon and any words uttered, it is in no way a Masonic act.
