A highly addictive drug causing gangrene and even rotting flesh has found its way to the shores of the U.S. Krokodil (pronounced crocodile), aptly named for the scaly skin appearing around injection sites, is now being used in America.
The first cases were reported by doctors at the Banner Poison Control Center where two men from Arizona began to show signs of damage from the drug.
Originating from Russia, this homemade drug grew in popularity due to the price which is 20 times cheaper than heroin and the fact that it can be made very simply by using chemicals found in your garage. It is an opiate made from codeine-based headache pills, gasoline, paint thinner, and alcohol.
Users of the drug near Siberia are reported to have a life span of two to three years after continually injecting themselves. Once injected, the blood … Read More »
Swedish men have been warned to keep their swim trunks on whilst taking a dip after a fish known as the pacu, a relative of the piranha, has been seen as of late in the waters of the Oresund Strait between Denmark and Sweden.
The alert came last week when a fisherman in the area retrieved an 8 inch Pacu.
These little “nutcrackers” are found in most rivers of the Amazon and Orinoco Basins of South America. They have also been spotted in Papua New Guinea and even as far as the U.S., where in Texas, there was reportedly a $100 dollar bounty on the pacu found in a lake.
“The pacu is not normally dangerous to people but it has quite a serious bite, there have been incidents in other countries, such as Papua New Guinea where some men have had their … Read More »
Richard Cimino Jr., of Doylestown, PA, was arrested for stripping naked in the street, breaking into a house, jumping through a second story window, attacking a woman in the street, and then biting her on the head in what is being described as “another naked cannibalistic zombie-style attack” presumed to be linked to the drug known as “bath salts”.
The incident took place on the morning of September 7, when the 20-year-old allegedly drove his car off the road, got out, stripped down to his underwear, and then tried to break into a local house on Hudson Street in Hawley, a small town located in Wayne County in Pennsylvania.
The Doylestown Patch reported that he woke an occupant in the house, but was not able to make it inside. Police said the homeowner yelled at the man who refused to leave at … Read More »
Neighbors in Camden, NJ are once again devastated by a brutal stabbing that left one 6-year-old boy dead and his 12-year-old sister in critical condition.
The stabbing comes less than two weeks after Camden mother Chevonne Thomas decapitated her 2-year-old son Zahree before stabbing herself in a murder/suicide that rocked the small town.
This time, ABC News reports that the two children were asleep in their home when, before 2:20 Sunday morning, the attacker entered the home and cut their throats, leaving their 14-year-old sister unharmed.
NJ.com reports that another 9-year-old girl was also in the home at the time, but was also uninjured.
After the attack, reports say that the 12-year-old, identified as Amber, was able to leave the home and go banging on neighbors’ doors asking for help. Police arrived at the scene and found her at a neighbor’s house with her … Read More »
Residents of Camden, NJ, are mourning another tragic murder/suicide in a town that has consistently been ranked one of the top 5 most dangerous cities in the U.S. This time, prosecutors say the victim was 2-year-old Zahree Thomas and the gruesome murder was committed by his own mother Chevonne Thomas in what investigators are describing as “one of the most horrific crime scenes they’ve seen.”
The 33-year-old mother of two reportedly called 9-1-1 around midnight and NBC10 News in Philadelphia reported that she hysterically told the operator that she had done something to her child.
Police arrived at the scene on the 1400 Block of Kaighns Avenue around 12:30.
Upon entering the residence, the police immediately found the decapitated body of a child on the first floor, according to Jason Laughlin from the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office.
“They were aware that there was somebody … Read More »
All across the United States, stories of people biting or even eating one another before going into fits of uncontrollable violence have been popping up. It all started with the may 26th attack on Ronald Poppo, whose face was eaten off by Rudy Eugene, in Miami. A string of milder forms of people eating other people soon followed causing rumors of a zombie apocalypse approaching. Now, it seems the invasion has moved to China.
This time, the attack came from a drunken bus driver named Dong in Wenzhou City, China. Dong was having lunch with friends while allegedly drunk when all of a sudden he rushed out into traffic stopping a woman in her vehicle. He jumped on the hood and began beating at the windshield.
The vehicle’s driver, a woman named Du, ran from her car and was chased down by … Read More »
In the midst of the news story about Rudy Eugene, who had taken bath salts before eating a man’s face in Miami, there were two other incidents where bath salts were the reason of insane human behavior. They both happened this month of June, 2012. Neither story is nearly as gruesome as Eugunes, as that would be hard to do, but the two perpetrators still did insane things. I had never heard of people using bath salts as a drug before, but somehow it seems it has caught on around the United States especially in Miami.
One incident was caused by a man named Brian De Leon who also lived in Miami, Florida. De Leon is a 21-year-old who was high on “Cloud 9,” as it is known on the streets, or better known as bath salts. He was also drunk … Read More »
In the latest trend of flesh-biting that has been plaguing the U.S., there comes the story of Lowpel Davis, a 38 year-old New Haven resident. She was jailed after stealing a wig from a beauty supply shop and then biting a chunk out of the store owner’s arm.
Apparently she and a juvenile female entered a Sassy Beauty Supply store and stole a wig and a bag full of supplies. However, the store owner, Jongol Lee, was onto them after noticing that a wig was missing from one of the mannequins and proceeded to check the security tape which showed the thievery in action. He tried to hold the women in the store until police got there but then she bolted down the street and he began chasing after her. Having been robbed on an almost daily basis, Lee decided he … Read More »
If you knew a fetus in a pill would make you strong like a bull would you take it? Apparently, this is a real question in South Korea. Health authorities ceased pills containing what they believe to be ground up fetus remains. These pills are believed to cure a variety of issues.
Things to think about:
Tests were performed on the pills and they were indeed human DNA. While this could be ground up fetus, it could also be placenta from the after birth. Many Asian beliefs have the placenta as being a male enhancement drug while I have found nothing on ground up babies.
I feel like I could eat another person in a dire situation, but this just seems ridiculous.

Another horrifying instance of cannibalism has occurred this week, this time by a man named Alexander Kinyua, a 21-year old student from Kenya attending Morgan State University. He admitted to cutting up his roommate and eating part of his brain, topping it off with the heart. The whole heart. This incident occurred during a week of flesh eating activity, kick started on Memorial Day with the face eater of Miami and intestine thrower of New Jersey.
Police were called by Kinyua’s father when his brother visited him after finding a human head and hands tucked away inside a metal tin in the basement. When he came back, the body parts were gone and Kinyua was washing out the tin. The victim, his roommate Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie, was reported missing last Friday from what the cops told the Baltimore Sun.
The house was … Read More »
If I were to say to you I have a story about a cannibal porn star that has an affinity towards recording his actions and uploading them you would say I saw that Troma film. Unfortunately, this is a true story of a porn star model, gone animal torturer, gone murderer. Luka Magnotta is a 29 year old killer who is currently on the loose.
According to Mirror News, he video taped himself killing kittens as well as people and posted the films to the internet for all to enjoy. This is all disturbing on many levels and even more so when you read that Magnotta says “Once you kill and taste blood it’s impossible to stop”. Combine this with a posting he made on how to disappear for good and you have a recipe for fear. In addition, he mailed … Read More »
In a week full of gruesome national news stories about face-eating madmen in Florida and disemboweling cage fighters in California, a 43-year-old, Hackensack, NJ man proved that people in the Northeast may have gone just as insane as the rest of the country when he allegedly attempted to fend off police officers by throwing bits and pieces of his skin and intestines at them.
According to the Associated Press, Wayne Carter was barricaded inside his home and was threatening to harm himself with a 12-inch knife when police arrived.
Despite the authorities efforts to talk him down, Carter reportedly began stabbing himself in the legs, neck, and abdomen and then proceeded to fling pieces of his skin and intestines at the officers.
His attempt to fend off the officers with his bloody projectiles was apparently successful, at least temporarily, because that’s when the … Read More »
An American cage fighter was apprehended after having ripped out his trainers still beating heart from his chest. He says he was convinced that his friend, Taylor Powell, had been possessed by the Devil. He also cut out his tongue and ripped off most of his face. Looks like the crazies have sprung up on the West coast now.
Jarrod Wyatt, 26, was found standing naked over his friend and trainer covered in blood from head to toe. There were body parts thrown around the room with blood spattered all over the walls and to top it off, a lone eyeball in the middle of the room. Justin Davis, another of Wyatt’s buddies, stumbled upon this grisly scene after going to check on him at his apartment in Klamath, California. Wyatt later told police that he had drunk a cup of … Read More »
Attention! There appears to have been reported by Miami police a man biting the face of another on a causeway Saturday afternoon. Sounds to me like a zombie got out of the government lab again and instead of finding himself a tasty deer, he got some poor homeless guy to satisfy his flesh craving.
The act was witnessed by Larry Vega who was out riding his bike and happened to come upon two men fighting. After closer examination, he noticed that one of the men was biting and clawing at the face of the other. Describing what he said was something straight out of a horror movie, he was luckily able to flag down a Miami police officer who assessed the situation.
“Police officer came over, told him several times to get off and a police officer climbed over the divider and … Read More »
Peoria man Dominic Chagolla has been found guilty for the 2010 murder of his mother who he stabbed to death and then made sure to clean up his mess like any good mama’s boy should.
Chagolla was given the title mama’s boy after the New Times obtained detailed documents of the case. The lifestyle of a couch surfin’, coddled, and catered-to little wienie must have gotten to him,cause mama just had to go, Norman Bates style.
This unfortunate mother, who was found in her SUV in early December 2010, was named Maria Chagolla, aged 50. She was reported missing a few days after the murder. The search ended when police found her body concealed under a blanket in the back seat. She was reported to have multiple stab wounds to the face and the sicko even went so far as … Read More »
A Florida woman is faced with charges of child abuse after trying to toss her 3-month-old in the ocean claiming that he was possessed by demons. Lydia Chako, 39, is to appear in court after the incident happened around 2 p.m. last Tuesday.
According to reports, Chako’s property manager called the police after visiting her apartment and noticed that it was flooded. Upon entering, the manager said she saw the woman throwing objects around her living room and ranting about how her baby was covered in snakes and lizards.
Snakes and lizards you say? Surely that must mean there are demons afoot.
Chako explained that she was “keeping the demons out” and proceeded to pick up her child by the feet and flee to the sea wall outside the complex.
Officer Brian Tejera arrived on the scene just in time to witness the half … Read More »
In a big city like New York, conflict between roommates is a common occurrence. They usually end with some choice words, one person moving out, and maybe some time in small claims court.
In one Brooklyn apartment, however, the lease was broken by dismemberment.
Sergey Mamonov, 50, and Aleksandr Zilbergleyt, 55, had only lived together for six months, but the police were called to their home seven times. Mamonov barraged them with a list of complaints about his roomie – he was loud, stayed up late, and hosted rowdy nights of drinking with friends and homeless people, to name a few.
On the night of March 25, Mamonov arrived home to find Zilbergleyt partying with guests. He kicked the company out, and the two engaged in a fistfight that ended in Zilbergleyt’s death.
Investigators believe the killing was accidental, but … Read More »
Poor Satan. The guy can’t catch a break. Every day, more and more people mess up and do crazy, bloody things, and he is constantly getting blamed.
Take, for example, the case of Joseph L. Nerone, 54.
Nerone was arrested on Friday, March 30 for the murder of his mother, Elaine. Earlier that week, he went to the Chicago home they shared for a welfare check and before he left he had stabbed and beaten her to death. Elaine, 84, received stab wounds to the head and back from multiple knives and her autopsy also indicated multiple blunt force trauma.
Nerone was charged with first degree murder, but according to Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney Terry Clancy he claimed that, “Satan killed the victim and that Satan was inside him.”
People who knew the Nerones were eager to defend the devil…or … Read More »
News stories and pop culture have taught us a lot about mobster culture. Do what you’re told, pay what you owe, and don’t rat, or else you’ll be sleeping with fishes. Films like The Godfather, though harrowing and bloody, do not cross into the horror genre, and we rarely associate mafia lifestyle with the truly macabre.
That is, until some Serbian gangsters decided to up the ante and borrow from the likes of Hannibal Lecter and Leatherface.
Milan Jurisic, 37, angered members of the Belgrade’s Zemun Clan, a division of the Serbian mafia. The dispute was allegedly over money, but new evidence indicates that the source of conflict may have actually been a woman. Whatever the issue, Jurisic, who was on the run after being convicted for the assassination of Serbia’s prime minister in 2003, was in enough trouble to be hunted … Read More »
Everyday in the news, whether it be the paper, t.v., or internet, we hear of awful tragedies around the globe or in our own backyard. Awful people hurting or taking advantage of others through criminal behavior or just plain ignorance. Angela Simpson however, resident of Phoenix, Arizona, is of an entirely different breed of criminal. The atrocity she committed is something I have only seen in the most vile Italian horror fare.
Simpson plead guilty on March 22, for the August 2009 murder of disabled man Terry Neely, 46.
She lured him to an abandoned apartment with the promise of drugs, but instead of fulfilling this promise she started beating him with a tire iron. She then stabbed him 50 times with different knives, strangled him, and drove a nail into his forehead, all while making him watch his own torture first … Read More »
First direct sunlight in 20 million years
When you look around the small world we live in, it’s crazy that there is anything that we haven’t seen or places we haven’t been to. Science makes the planet seem smaller every time we dive deeper or dig further. Yet, every week there seems to be a deep forest with species that have yet to have named, and ocean area too hot to explore, or even a lake buried in over 2 miles of ice and snow. Lake Vostok in Antarctica is such a lake.
Lake Vostok is the third largest lake by volume in the world. Russian scientists have spent the past 20 years boring through just over 2 miles of snow and ice to reach the lakes surface. This is the first time in an estimated 20 … Read More »
Whether you are an experienced murderer or not, some things are common knowledge.
First, hide the body.
36 year-old Xiu Jin Teng lived in Toronto with her husband, Dong Huang, 40. One night, the landlord of their apartment heard Huang screaming. When, in days following, he did not see his tenant, he asked Teng of the man’s whereabouts. She claimed he had gone to Hong Kong.
Yet on Wednesday, February 29, the landlord caught Teng moving items out of the apartment. Suspicious, neighbor William Zhang and his wife checked out the apartment.
Teng was out, but the couple was greeted by a pair of feet.
There was Huang, dead and wrapped in a blanket.
Second, have a good story.
Teng allegedly returned to the apartment soon after the grisly discovery was made and claimed Huang had suffered a heart attack.
Considering the situation, this seemed unlikely, and Teng … Read More »
Isakin Jonsson, known in Sweden and around the world as “the Skara Cannibal”, is in love.
His last relationship didn’t end very well. The 32 year-old murdered his then-girlfriend, 40-year-old mother of five Helle Christensen in early 2011. He removed parts of her body, seasoned, fried, and ate them.
23 year-old Michelle Gustafsson has a bad track record with the opposite sex as well. The “Vampire Woman” killed a father of four and drank his blood, then posted photos of herself with her meal on her face on her personal blog.
It was fate, then, that the two would meet in the Karsuddens psychiatric facility in eastern Sweden. The inmates cultivated their relationship by chatting on the web, and, “We got together on November 13th (2011),” said Gustafsson. “‘Do you want to be my girlfriend?’ he asked on MSN. Then we decided to get engaged, which we … Read More »
While there are many films based on true stories about psycho killers going on a rampage and murdering the innocent, sometimes news headlines show just how truly horrible people can be without the fiction added. Such was the case with a Northern California man named Thomas McDonald, 35. Apparently McDonald went into a mad rage after he couldn’t locate his medication and put the blame on his friends and roommates Captain Cappy Ricks, 35, and Gary St. Pierre, 53. He then preceded to attack his buddies after a failed attempt to calm him down, stabbing them in the face with a fork. Thomas ran from the house and that’s when things became really gruesome.
He went after two random men with a splitting maul, a long axe used to split logs, and began his killing rampage. He approached a neighbor, Ralph … Read More »
38 year-old Brian Schmidt was having a bad night, but his ex-girlfriend – and her pet snake – were about to have it much worse.
A drunken Schmidt visited his ex’s home on the night of Saturday, February 11. She was not home, but her babysitter instructed the belligerent guest to leave. He refused, and allegedly blamed the sitter for the crumbling of his relationship. (Yeah, we’re sure she’s the reason…)
When his ex returned, he was asleep in her bed. She woke him and he forced her to drive him to his car, which was parked at a local Woodbury, Minnesota bar. No surprise there.
Throughout the drive he made threats on the woman’s life and told her to expect a “nice surprise” when she returned home.
Surprise it was. Nice it was not.
Bottles of lotion had been emptied all over the woman’s belonging, … Read More »
More human remains were recently discovered on Long Island, New York in a heavily wooded area by a town resident. Around 6:30 PM on Friday near the Pine Barrens in Manorville, Matt Samuel took a walk deep in the woods with his dog when he noticed something unusual in the ground. About 300 feet off the main road is where he took a closer look and realized it was the skeletal remains of a human.
“I probably walked by it a hundred times before, and I saw it sticking out of the ground and it looked unusual, I looked a little closer and from there discovered it was human remains,” he said, also adding that the body looked like it had been decomposing a long time. “It was wrapped in bed sheets and a plastic bag, it was … Read More »
It sounds like a fictional tale, a murder mystery primed for the best-seller list.
Real life, however, is often far stranger than fiction, a notion proven yet again by the mystery unfolding in Belgium.
On January 31, 2012, lord Stijn Saelens, 34, vanished from Wingene Castle. All that remained were a used cartridge and trail of blood going all the way from the house to the driveway.
His body was found buried in the woods Friday, February 17.
One day prior, police had arrested Saelens’ father-in-law and brother-in-law, and a friend of theirs, Pierre Serry. This led the media to believe the police were given specific directions to the body’s location from their suspects, despite a lawyer for the father-in-law claiming he has a “perfect alibi.”
It is theorized that the in-laws were outraged by Saelens’ plan to move his family to Australia and start … Read More »
Curtis Stanton must have misunderstood the phrase demon on the dance floor.
On September 13, 2008, the now 42 year-old Memphis man paid a visit to girlfriend Regina Tidwell, 34, at a dance club. As Stanton explained in a statement to the jury on Wednesday, February 15, Tidwell was not interested in dancing with him.
“That’s when I first started hearing voices in my head, telling me to kill her. I guess it just stuck with me,” he said.
Instead of telling those voices to hush, he found a steak knife, concealed it in his pants, and followed Tidwell home. Sometime after 1 a.m., he confronted the victim outside of her apartment, dragged her behind the building, and stabbed her to death.
“I asked her to talk to me and she said she had to go use the restroom,” he explained. ”Then the demon … Read More »
Someone cue the creepy organ music and boys choir in D minor, because it looks as if the antichrist has joined us at last. Or so thought Texas woman Beth Ann Straley, 46, accused of breaking into a neighbor’s home set on killing their 5-year-old son whom she claimed to be none other than the Antichrist himself. According to the arrest warrant affidavit, she entered the house on January 27th wielding a .38-caliber semi automatic pistol with the intent of committing capital murder.
After charging in, Straley was greeted instead by the family’s 37-year-old babysitter. Straley then demanded to see the parent’s of the supposed hell spawn but they weren’t home of course and after refusing to disclose the whereabouts of the boy’s parents, the apparently street tough sitter easily disarmed Straley who then ran to a nearby … Read More »
Somerset, Wisconsin is the setting of a night of bondage and torture that took place last October. Two sisters who sexually assaulted a man in their home have been taken into custody by authorities after he reported the incident. Valerie Bartkey, 24 and Amanda Johnson, 17, are the two allegedly responsible for the vile acts that happened that night.
According to the 18-year-old victim, he appeared at the sister’s residence in Somerset and was punched and kicked by the girls upon his arrival, and what probably began as a night of fun appears to have developed into a scene from a horror movie.
After the young man was beaten, he was presented with a beverage which he was told was lemonade, but after taking a sip he came to discover it was the urine of one or both of his attackers. At … Read More »
