Pazuzu Algarad (Arabic: بازوزو اله الجراد‎ 1978–2015), was an American serial killer responsible for the murder of three men. Born as John Alexander Lawson, Pazuzu legally changed his name in 2002 to conform with his satanist beliefs. He committed suicide in jail to escape conviction of his crimes. He had previously sharpened his teeth and used these to bite a vein in his arm.

In 2012, he was convicted as an accessory after the fact, after a shooting death in Dohanna Park near the Yadkin River in 2010.[1] In 2014, he was arrested after skeletal remains were discovered in shallow graves in his backyard.[2] His girlfriend was arrested as well. She was charged and later convicted for her role in the deaths.[3]

He lived at a house at 2749 Knob Hill Drive in Clemmons, North Carolina, with his mother. The house was demolished in 2015[4], after being declared unfit for human occupation.[5]

Following his death, he became the subject of a documentary called The Devil You Know.[6]
