Smith came to the attention of authorities when his cousin contacted Bridgeport police about Gonzalez’s slaying. She told detectives that Smith had arrived at her house on Dec. 15, 2011, and said he wanted to “get blood on his hands” before going to the abandoned home, where he used to live, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.

The next day, Smith returned to the cousin’s house with blood on his pants, hands and an ax, the affidavit said. Smith told his cousin that he killed Gonzalez with the ax, then collected parts of his victim and consumed them in a nearby cemetery, washing them down with sake, according to court documents.

Public defender Joseph Bruckmann handled the insanity defense.

Less than a month after the killing, Smith was treated and released from St. Vincent’s Medical Center’s Behavioral Health Services in Westport after being discovered in a pharmacy bleeding from his wrist, which police said he had slashed with a box cutter.

He was eventually discharged and returned to Florida, where he was arrested on Jan. 23, 2012.
