A man in Ukraine has been arrested and held for psychiatric testing after he allegedly sliced up his grandmotherís face and ate it, before finally killing her.
The man, a 26 year old named only as Vlad was arrested at a flat in Simferopol, Ukraine after his father broke down the door to find his dead mother lying in a pool of blood horrifically mutilated.
It is reported that Vlad used a shard of broken mirror to mutilate his grandmother, who had raised him as a child. Local police have said that Vlad gouged out his grandmotherís eyes and ate them as she screamed for help and tried to escape.
ďThe old woman was conscious and tried to escape, screaming. He responded by slicing off her tongue and eating it,Ē a police insider said.
By the time the womanís son broke into the flat her eyes, tongue, ears and lips had been sliced off and eaten by her attacker and her skull eventually smashed in, killing her.
The witness fled the scene and called police who responded by pumping knockout gas into the flat to subdue the man before they entered. Inside the flat the police found the 26 year old covered in blood wearing only a pair of underpants and holding a cross, he was apparently carrying out a perverse funeral ritual. The manís neighbours have described him as a religious fanatic.
