The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office has arrested and charged Pazuzu Illah Algarad and his wife Amber Burch with murder in connection with the deaths of two currently unidentified individuals.

Before these charges, the 35 year old Algarad had been arrested for assault on a female and grand larceny. He was given suspended sentences in both crimes. In 2010, he was arrested and charged with accessory after the fact in the involuntary manslaughter death of Emmrick Chandler of Clemmons, who was found dead on June 7, 2010, at the Yadkin River access off N.C. 67. In that matter, Nicholas Pasquale Rizzi of Lewisville was charged with involuntary manslaughter.

On Sunday, the FCSO, assisted by the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation, the North Carolina State University Forensic Anthropology Unit. and the Medical Examiner’s Office from Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, executed a search warrant at 2749 Knob Hill Drive, in Clemmons. During the search of the property, the skeletal remains of two individuals were located buried in shallow graves in the backyard of the property. The remains of both individuals have been transported to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center for further examination and identification.

As a result of the investigation, the FCSO charged Pazuzu with one count of Murder and one count of Accessory After the Fact to Murder. He is presently confined to the Forsyth County Detention Center with No Bond Allowed. His wife has been charged with one count of Murder and one count of Accessory After the Fact to Murder. She is presently confined to the Forsyth County Detention Center with No Bond Allowed.

Pazuzu, which is the name of an Assyrian and Babylonian demon, is his legal name. According to one source,  Pazuzu claims his mother was a “Satanist” and gave him this name. Pazuzu is the name of the main demon in the books and film “The Exorcist”, who is the king of the demons of the wind.

The same source states Pazuzu is of Greek and Iraqi heritage, but the state of North Carolina list him as “Nordic/Scandinavian” on his arrest records.

On Facebook, Pazuzu has a cover photo with the word “antichrist” in large letters with bloody, upside down crosses, and a demon as his profile photo.


Amber, who is 24 years old, is originally from Rock Hill, South Carolina. She and Pazuzu have been married for almost 5 years. According to information obtained by CCD, she went back home to South Carolina in 2013 with the intention of leaving Pazuzu, but returned to him following a brief separation.  She, too, has a previous record with two Mecklenburg County charges for Driving While Impaired and driving after consuming in 2009.

CCD found one description of the home authorities now say is a crime scene. The description was posted online in March of 2013 and read:

“His house is disgusting, his dogs piss all over the floor, drunk people piss on the floor, they poor beer all over the place and don’t clean it up…it’s crazy, as soon as you walk in it smells like rank old dog piss, body odor, and feet. It looks so normal from the outside…except for the front door. Even from a distance, especially from the road, the jet-black-painted door seems like nothing but a void or a black hole. It doesn’t even look like there’s a door there, just a menacing hole left there to suck passersby in. Once you walk in, you immediately sense a very different kind of energy; it’s certainly dark, but not necessarily evil (IMO). Simply a very free, chaotic kind of liberating vibe–the kind of chaotic freedom that people not entirely in control can get carried away with, if anyone can possibly understand my meaning.”
