A Mayland college student murdered and ate some bodyparts of his roommate.
June 1, 2012– A college student who police accused of murdering his roommate has told police a chilling story. The 21-year old told authorities he ate the heart of his victim and a section of his brain after he killed him.
Alexander Kinyua said he hid the hands and head of the victim in the basement of his family’s home in a Baltimore suburb. Kinyua is a Morgan State University student and was charged in early May in a separate attack in which he brutally beat his victim, but the victim survived.
Kinyua is originally from Kenya and was charged by police this week with first-degree murder. He is accused of killing Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie who was 37. Authorities are holding Kinyua without bail.
A spokeswoman from the Sheriff’s office said the medical examiner was still identifying body parts, but law enforcement authorities believe the parts are Kodie, who had been reported missing on May 25.
The father of the accused called police to report that Jarrod, another son, found the remains in the house. Jarrod located two metal containers, which contained a human head and a pair of human hands. When Jarrod confronted his brother, Alexander said they were animal remains.
After obtaining a search warrant, the police located the body parts and charged Kinyua after he admitted to killing and dismembering the victim and eating parts of his brain and heart.
