College Student Eats Victim's Heart And Brain! [Maryland]
Published on May 31, 2012
At the suspect's bail review Thursday afternoon, a judge denied him bail. But the suspect remained calm. He said very little other than he was originally from Nairobi, Kenya, and had strong community ties to Maryland after living here for nine years. But details behind this stunning crime remain a mystery. Investigators say 21-year-old college student Alexander Kinyua killed his roommate and then ate his heart and parts of his brain. He cut off his victim's head and hands and stored them in his family's townhouse on Terrapin Terrace in Joppatowne. Family members there declined to speak to WJZ about the chilling crime. But police say Kinyua's brother is the one who found the remains, and his father called police. Police say Kinyua's brother went down to the laundry room of the house and saw a blanket on a box. He pulled off the blanket and saw two metal tins. Police say he opened them and saw a head and two hands. When Kinyua's brother confronted him about this, police say Kinyua said they were animal remains and not human remains. The brother then got his dad. The dad went downstairs and the items were gone.
