Many boyfriends offer teddy bears on Valentine’s Day as a sign of affection for their loved ones, but in this strange tale of jealousy, Marshay Farnard lit an innocent stuffed animal on fire to get back at his ex.

Back in 2015, Farnard broke up with his girlfriend one morning and then went through her text messages and assumed she was cheating. Incensed by the idea of her being unfaithful, he grabbed her child’s teddy bear, doused it in lighter fluid, lit it on fire, and threw it in the fireplace. He also threatened to burn the house down, but thankfully police stepped in before he could cause more damage.
