21-year-old man accused of killing a housemate told police in Harford County, Md., that he ate the victim’s heart and part of his brain after killing him.
Alexander Kinyua first became a suspect when his brother found what he thought were human remains in the basement of the family’s Joppatowne home. When the brother confronted Kinyua, he told him they were animal remains, according to ABC 2 News in Baltimore. The brother told the father about the grisly find, but when the father searched the basement the remains were gone.
Kinyua has been charged with first-degree murder and was ordered held on no bail, according to the Associated Press.
Kinyua’s roommate, Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie, 37, was reported missing Friday.
Harford County Sherriff Jesse Bane said a head and hands were recovered on the main floor of the home. Harford County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Monica Worrell said deputies also found more body parts at a nearby dumpster.
Detectives have not yet positively identified the body. Police say they have a strong suspicion it’s the missing man, according to ABC 2 News.
Investigators say Agyei-Kodie left the house for a run but never returned.
Baltimore police told the Associated Press that Kinyua, a former Morgan State University student, had beaten a man with a baseball bat on the college campus, fracturing his skull and making him lose sight in one eye earlier this month. He was released the following day on $220,000 bail.
This is the second cannibal-like attack this week, which has been dubbed "zombie apocalypse." Earlier this week police discovered a man devouring the face of a homeless man on a Miami highway. Rudy Eugene was shot dead by police after he refused to stop tearing the flesh off the face of Ronald Poppo, who is in critical condition after police say 75 percent of his face was devoured.
