Don’t like gruesome news? This week isn’t your week. Sorry. :(
Three stories that don’t pass the “breakfast test”: This week has been a bit of a roller coaster as far as downright sickening news goes. We feel that all this stuff has to be noted, but let’s be honest. This is not the kind of stuff that one expects to hear about back-to-back-to-back. Initially, we didn’t even mention the first story below because we felt it was too disturbing. But as the week has gone on and a trend of disturbing news has cropped up, we figured we had to get to get a mention in. For your sake, here’s what you need to know. Note: This story is tagged with “trigger warning” for folks who need that sort of thing.
sunday In Miami, a guy was shot and killed after eating another man’s face in a brutal scene captured on camera. Some sites (Gawker) even posted photos of the victim. This story is weird even for hardened investigators.
tuesday In Montreal, a manhunt began after body parts started getting mailed to various Canadian political parties. The murder was reportedly filmed; a porn star with an extremely bizarre online reputation is the lead suspect.
thursday In Maryland, a Morgan State University student is accused of killing his housemate, then eating his heart and part of his brains The suspect had also been charged with assault in an incident less than two weeks ago.
