A college student suspected of killing and eating parts of a man staying at his home ranted about "mass human sacrifices" in Facebook postings months before the grisly murder, it has emerged.
Authorities say Alex Kinyua, 21, admitted using a knife to kill and carve up Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie, 37, before eating his heart and parts of his brain. The older man had been staying with the Kinyua family for about six weeks at their townhouse in the Baltimore suburb of Joppatowne.
The remains have been positively identified as Agyei-Kodie's and a relative in the United States
has been notified, according to sheriff's office spokeswoman Monica Worrell. No other charges have been filed against anyone else, she said.
Both the victim and his alleged killer had attended nearby Morgan State University, a historically black university in Baltimore. Kinyua had just finished his junior year, and Agyei-Kodie was a graduate student who last attended classes in 2008.
Both men were also originally from Africa; Kinyua, a US citizen, moved from Kenya as a child and Agyei-Kodie was from Ghana.
Investigators haven't given a possible motive in the slaying. In a separate case on May 19, police said Kinyua beat a man with a baseball bat on Morgan State's campus, fracturing his skull and making him lose sight in one eye.
Kinyua was free on $220,000 bail in that case. He is now being held without bond on a murder charge. ...
