Maryland students slaughters and feasts on friend.

The 21-year-old college student allegedly told detectives that he hadn't just killed the man who'd lived with his family for months, but had eaten his heart and portions of his brain. The victim's severed head and hands were found in the men's Harford County home; more remains were left in a trash container outside a church.

Authorities outlined the macabre circumstances Thursday in charges against Alexander Kinyua, an electrical engineering major at Morgan State University and member of his school's ROTC program, of first-degree murder in the death of 37-year-old Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie, a Ghanaian national and a former master's degree student.

Kinyua's father reported that Agyei-Kodie went missing last Friday after going for a jog, but the investigation eventually led back to the family home. Kinyua was being held Thursday without bond, and authorities were exploring whether others participated in the crime or knew about it, based on what they called inconsistencies in statements made by the suspect's family.

Harford authorities said the killing was among the most brutal — and bizarre — they'd seen. The case comes on the heels of grisly incidents in Miami — where a naked man believed to be high on synthetic drugs known as "bath salts" ate another man's face — and New Jersey, where a man disemboweled himself and reportedly threw his intestines at police officers.

Harford County Sheriff Jesse Bane said of the allegations against Kinyua: "I've been with the agency 40 years, and I would say this is the first time I can remember … where someone was placed under arrest in Harford County and as part of his crime he consumed the victim.

"I've not encountered that in this county, and I hope we never encounter it again," he added.

Despite Kinyua's alleged confession, which a spokeswoman described as "matter-of-fact," police said they did not know of a motive for the crime and said they would not speculate on his mental state or whether drugs played a role. They were consulting with the FBI's behavioral analysis unit for guidance.

But accounts from Morgan officials and classmates, as well as social media postings by Kinyua, suggest he was growing increasingly troubled as his third year of school came to a close. In January, he was dismissed from the ROTC program after an outburst, and in May he was arrested for allegedly fracturing the skull of a classmate with a baseball bat. The classmate was blinded in one eye as a result of what campus police called a "random" attack.

His Facebook page includes commentary about the "destruction of the black family" and "mass human sacrifices."

"THIS IS THE BRUTAL BASIS, AN EVIL & TERRIFYING METHOD OF THIS DEATH CULTS," he wrote in one message.

Students familiar with Kinyua said he was well known around campus but regarded as odd. Jasmine Bloomfield said he was "always in his own little world, preaching everywhere he went and talking about how he was writing a book."

Natalie Fabien, 21, who had mutual friends with Kinyua, said his behavior was often unusual and he was prone to outbursts, but also showed genuine concern for others. "If anything ever happened to me, he'd be like, 'Who did it and why?' He always wanted to protect people from bad stuff," Fabien said.

Word of Kinyua's arrest was a hot topic Thursday around Morgan's campus, even though most of its 7,000 students are on summer break. "If you're part of the Morgan family, it's a big family, so word goes around fast," said Stephen Copeland, 28, a senior. "Everybody's in shock."

The victim, Agyei-Kodie, had also attended Morgan State on a student visa. He was dismissed by the university after a 2008 conviction in Baltimore County for a fourth-degree sex offense, harassment and stalking, resulting in an 18-month jail term. He also had attended Towson University for a time, a spokeswoman for that school confirmed.

Agyei-Kodie had lived with Kinyua's family in the 500 block of Terrapin Terrace in Joppa for about six months and did not know anyone else in the area, according to police reports. Kinyua's father, Antony, told police that Agyei-Kodie had recently been "depressed" after being apprehended on an immigration warrant and was facing likely deportation.

Police issued a public appeal Monday for help in finding Agyei-Kodie, who was said to have left for a jog at 5:30 a.m. on May 25 wearing a T-shirt and black athletic shorts. Monica Worrell, a county police spokeswoman, said investigators had concerns about statements made by Kinyua's family.
 
The online plea said, "In order to get him the best defense possible, we need to secure an attorney who will take his case and leave no stone unturned."

It also stated that a fundraising event was scheduled at the International Christian Community Church in Baltimore. The church was locked Thursday afternoon, and nobody answered a knock on the door.

Pictures on Facebook taken before this past semester show Kinyua with a wide grin at a laser tag event and showing off a blue jacket for the National Society of Pershing Rifles, a fraternal group for students in ROTC programs. Another shows him in military fatigues, standing at attention.

More recent posts to the social networking site reflected a shift. In the two most recent posts, Kinyua uploaded "QR Codes," bar code images that, when scanned with a smartphone, lead to a Web page. They both led to a message about something called "Project Crack the Code," promising "more information on survival of the human family."

Attempts to reach Kinyua's family have been unsuccessful. A man who answered the phone Wednesday night at a number listed for Antony and Beatrice Kinyua said they were resting and that the family did not wish to speak to the news media without an attorney present. On Thursday, no one answered the door of the Joppa townhouse.

On tidy, well-kept Terrapin Terrace near Joppatowne High School,
Mary Ellen Murray, who lived several houses down from the Kinyuas, said the parents, Beatrice and Antony, were quiet, "wonderful" people.

"They would give you the shirt off their back," Murray said. "Nobody has anything bad to say about them."

Harry Olson, the family's next-door neighbor and a physics professor at Morgan who once taught Kinyua, said police squad cars and two hazardous-materials vehicles were stationed on his street Wednesday, and investigators brought "lots of stuff" in bags out of the home.

Investigators also took an entire toilet from the home and dug up a garden in the front of the house, Olson said.

"It's shocking," another neighbor, Kenny Day, said of the allegations of cannibalism. "You don't want to hear about that stuff, but you certainly don't want to hear about it in your neighborhood.

"You can't be scared of stuff like that, though, because you can't run from crazy, and that's total crazy," Day added.

Thank you sir, I was wondering the cause of that. I was hoping you'd drop in and say something, you're usually the man of the news.

Awesome, bro. You got it now :). All other programs (Word, emails, etc) and websites will keep their HTML attributes (font, size, etc.) but when copied and pasted - the text goes gray.

Ok, now I can read your post - cheers.

Ya, I read that story this morning thought the same thing. In what, the span of 2 days we have a dude eat another guys face off, another dude cuts himself open and throws bits of his intestines and flesh at the cops and then this dude admits to eating brains and heart.

Weird shit and another good reason to keep our friends happy and content by filling them up with chicken wings, beer and Doritos.

North America has something wild going on, don't forget Luka making that video and mailing out the body parts.

And it'll be interesting to see if he ate any parts of the man he killed. That whole Luka thing doesn't make any sense...kill some dude, cut him up, mail a few body parts to various political party offices and then take off to France.

I'm thinking that he mailed the body parts with written messages but that the Montreal police are withholding that info.

He did eat some of the body, didn't you watch the video? He also shared some with his puppy, lol.

Some are saying he just wanted the attention and knew that would be a good way to get it, others feel that there's political implications behind the packages. Maybe we will know one day?
