Police discover 'house of horrors' with over 2,000 blades
Was Nickcole Dykema gearing up early for a Halloween haunted house? Not exactly.
Florida woman Paula Deford says her neighbor, 47-year-old Nickcole Dykema, was caught on her surveillance video attacking her home with a knife. When parole and police officers arrived at Dykema's Brookfield, Florida home to serve felony warrants, what they ended up finding was truly terrifying.
When police entered the home, the woman attempted to stab one of the policemen with a machete, missing his face and head by only inches.
After a difficult struggle, police got Dykema in custody and proceeded to search the home. During inventory of the home, deputies found upwards of 2,000 bladed devices and an altar of some sort, according to CBS affiliate, WTSP.
After Deford saw police disassembling her neighbor's horrifying death trap, she told WTSP, "I'm lucky to be alive, that's how I feel, that's exactly how I feel."
