Everyone in the country has heard about the case of Rudy Eugene, the Miami man who was killed by police as he, without any clothes on, ate a homeless man's face under a bridge. But it wasn't the only case of cannibalism this week.


Maryland 21-year-old Alexander Kinyua was denied bail yesterday afternoon after he told police he killed a man and ate his heart and brain.

Kinyua's father called police after his other son found a head and two hands inside metal tins in the family laundry room, according to the Baltimore Sun.

He told police he cut the victim up with a knife and ate parts of him; the rest of the man was found in a Dumpster. Kinyua is an electrical engineering student at Morgan State University but was reportedly in the process of being expelled after he was accused of attacking another student with a baseball bat earlier this month.
