Has a zombie apocalypse taken over America? Another Cannibal spotted in Maryland!
First it was the Miami face-eating man, Rudy Eugene, now a 21-year-old college student is accused of killing his roommate after he told police he ate the victim’s heart and part of his brain after he died.
According to CBS Baltimore, Alexander Kinyua hid the head and hands of 37-year-old Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie inside the victim’s basement laundry room in a suburb of Baltimore.
Kinyua, a student at Morgan State University, was charged earlier in May in another attack in which the victim was brutally beaten, but survived.
Kinyua, a Kenya native, is charged with first-degree murder and other charges in the death of Agyei-Kodie and was ordered to be held on no bail.
Sheriff’s spokeswoman Monica Worrell said the chief medical examiner had not yet officially identified the body parts, but that authorities believe they are those of Kodie, who was reported missing May 25. His cell phone and wallet were left in the home and police were initially told he had gone for a run.
On Tuesday, Kinyua’s father, Antony Kinyua, called detectives and reported that another son, Jarrod, found what he thought were human remains in the house where they all lived in Joppatowne.
According to charging documents, Jarrod and his father went to the basement, where they “observed that the items he observed were gone and Alex Kinyua was cleaning the container he observed them in.”
Detectives obtained a search warrant and found the head and hands of Agyei-Kodie in the house. Police say Alexander Kinyua admitted to killing Kodie by cutting him up with a knife and eating his heart and part of his brain.
Authorities say Kinyua told detectives the rest of the body could be found in a trash container at the Town Baptist Church in Harford County.
This latest attack comes in the same week as Miami man, Rudy Eugene, chewed away another man’s face along a busy highway and wouldn’t stop until an officer shot him to death.
Morgan officials say Kinyua studied electrical engineering and was also in the ROTC.
According to court records, the victim, a native of Ghana, was convicted in November 2008 in Baltimore County of a sex offense and assault in September 2007 and harassment, stalking and telephone misuse for making repeated calls in 2007 and 2008 to a woman. He was sentenced to at least a year and a half in jail.
