College student ate his roommate’s brain and heart — WTF?
Alexander Kinyua and his victim, Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie
A Maryland man is accused of dismembering his missing housemate, gorging on his heart and brain, and then storing his severed head and hands in the basement…
Alexander Kinyua, a 21-year-old Morgan State University student, was arrested Wednesday in the attack against Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie, a friend of Kinyua’s father. Kinyua was charged with first-degree murder and ordered held without bail Thursday…
Agyei-Kodie, a 37-year-old Ghanian immigrant described by authorities as “very intelligent,” had been staying at the Kinyua home in Joppatowne, Md., for six months before his disappearance last Friday…
On Tuesday, Alexander Kinyua’s brother discovered two tins in the home’s basement that contained a human head and two hands, according to charging documents.
Kinyua’s brother confronted him, but he denied they were human, and when his brother and father returned to the basement, the containers were gone, the report said.
Police were called to the home and obtained a search warrant the next day. They interviewed Kinyua, who allegedly said he cut up Agyei-Kodie with a knife and then “ingested (his) heart and portions of his brain,” according to the report.
I’m wondering lately if I should add another news category to this blog of mine? Cannibalism?
Of course, the history of this sort of behavior stretches from primitive times all the way through transubstantiation to contemporary aberrant behavior. I don’t believe that even the more wacko religions are going around advocating the practice, though.
