After the call, the homeowner said that she saw a ‘homeless-looking’ man, who identified himself as being Duyck, talking with her neighbors.
Duyck was arrested on April 24 after deputies found him sleeping in his car in the parking lot of the Walmart Supercenter in nearby Cornelius.
Following his arrest, authorities collected Duyck’s DNA, which was a match to the fluid found inside Ellie the horse.
Deputies said that Duyck claimed to have broken into the stable to groom the horse, but later admitted to ejaculating on the horse’s tail. He also claimed it was the first and only time he had sexually assaulted a horse.
The probable cause affidavit revealed that Duyck stated that he believed he made a ‘bad decision’ because he had not been taking his medications for autism spectrum disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder for more than a month.
