Maryland Man Tells Cops He Ate Heart, Brain of Victim

Harford County Sheriff's Office(BALTIMORE) -- A 21-year-old man charged with murdering his roommate told police in Harford County, Md., that he ate the victim’s heart and part of his brain after killing him.

Alexander Kinyua first became a suspect when his brother found what he thought were human remains in the basement of the family’s Joppatowne home.  When the brother confronted Kinyua, he told him they were animal remains, according to ABC 2 News in Baltimore. 

The brother then told his father about the grisly find, but when the father searched the basement the remains were gone.

Harford County Sheriff Jesse Bane said a head and hands were recovered on the main floor of the home.  Harford County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Monica Worrell said deputies also found more body parts at a nearby dumpster.

Detectives have not yet positively identified the body.  Police say they have a strong suspicion it’s Kinyua’s roommate, Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie, 37, who was reported missing last Friday, according to ABC 2 News.

Investigators say Agyei-Kodie left the house for a run but never returned.

This is the second cannibal-like attack in less than a week.  Last Saturday, police discovered a man devouring the face of a homeless man on a Miami highway. 

Rudy Eugene was shot dead by police after he refused to stop tearing the flesh off the face of Ronald Poppo, who is in critical condition after police say 75 percent of his face was devoured.

Cheney Appears Frail at First Public Event Since Heart Surgery

Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(BAKERSFIELD, Calif.) -- Former vice president Cheney appeared frail and noticeably thin during a public appearance this weekend at the Bakersfield Business Conference.

Cheney’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The former vice president has been on the mend since a July procedure to implant a Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD) into his heart. Cheney said at the time he was "entering a new phase of the [heart] disease" when he began to "experience increasing congestive heart failure."

Cheney was released from the hospital August 9.

The California event was Cheney’s second appearance this month. Last week, he spoke at a closed press event for the Council of Insurance Agents & Brokers in Colorado Springs.

Cheney’s history of heart problems includes five heart attacks, dating back to his first in 1978 when he was just 37 years old. His most recent one took place in February.
