A Kenyan has been arrested by US Police in shocking criminal revelation for allegedly killing and eating the flesh of an African house mate. His victim has been identified as 37-year-old Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie, a Ghanaian or Nigerian national.
Investigators say 21-year-old college student Alexander Kinyua killed his roommate and then ate his heart and parts of his brain. He cut off his victim's head and hands and stored them in his family's townhouse on Terrapin Terrace in Joppatowne
Emerging details seem to point to the possibility that the Kenyan born naturalized US student who confessed to having engaged in a horrifying incident of human flesh-eating earlier in the week suffers from serious mental and psychological illness.
Multiple sources within the Kenyan community in Maryland who are familiar with the Kinyua family indicated to The Standard Digital that Kinyua, a student in Maryland who allegedly admitted to the police to devouring his roommate's brain and heart had earlier on depicted signs of depression.
"It has been clear to the family members and friends that this boy was severely depressed and he was just a walking time bomb. But because nobody in the Kenyan community was courageous enough to even admit that the boy is a Mathare candidate, the situation was left to come to this. It is very sad". Said a family friend who requested that we do not use his name.
Kinyua, a student at Morgan State University, admitted to murdering his roommate Agyei-Kodie, who was reported missing last Friday. It's reported in the US press that Kinyua's father called police late Tuesday night when Kinyua's brother reportedly found human remains - a head and two hands - in a metal tin in the basement.
The brother and father left the room for a short time, but when they came back, the body parts had been moved and Kinyua was washing out the tin, the Baltimore Sun reported.
Officers searched the house and arrested Kinyua.
The man allegedly confessed a shocking revelation: not only had he killed Agyei-Kodie by cutting him up with a knife and then dismembered him, he ingested parts of the victim's brain and all of his heart. He then allegedly dropped most of the remains in a Dumpster behind a church in Joppatowne.
It's yet unclear what Kinyua's motive may have been, but he was charged with first-degree murder on Wednesday. In another incident on May 20, he was charged with first-degree assault when he allegedly beat a fellow student randomly with a baseball bat and then fled into the woods.
Kinyua is a naturalized citizen of the United States who moved to America from Nairobi, Kenya nine years ago. He made an initial appearance in court on Thursday and is being held without bail. He is charged with 1st degree murder, 1st degree assault and 2nd degree assault.
The county chief medical examiner has yet to officially identify the body parts as those of Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie
