A Maryland cannibalism suspect was described as “Virginia Tech waiting to happen” months before he was accused of dismembering and eating parts of a family friend.
The police report, uncovered by the Baltimore Sun, found that a school instructor at Morgan State University in Baltimore warned that Alexander Kinyua had violent tendencies, citing the deadly incident in Virgina where an unhinged student killed 32 people.
The warnings came after Kinyua was kicked out of an ROTC program after he punched holes in the walls of the cadet computer lab, according to a campus police report.
Sources told the Sun Kinyua received counseling by the police and others and was allowed to return to campus. But once back in school, his bizarre behavior continued to puzzle and frighten classmates.
Kinyua spoke at an anti-hazing forum, attended by the school president and police chief, and rambled about human sacrifice. According to the Sun, he said he wanted to establish a hazing policy for off campus incidents and spoke about “blood sacrifices.”
“I just want to inform people, because most people are unaware of it,” he added.
According to previous reports, Kinyua also spoke in great detail about “mass human sacrifices” on his Facebook account.
In one post, he also referred to the shootings at Virginia Tech, asking if historically black colleges and universities were “strong enough to endure ritual HBCU mass human sacrifices around the country and still be able to function as human beings?”
He also had run-ins with the police shortly before the gruesome murder. On May 19, police said Kinyua was arrested after beating a man with a baseball bat on campus, fracturing his skull and making him lose eye sight in one eye, the Associated Press reported.
Days later, police say, he murdered Kujoe Bonsafo-Agyei-Kodie, a 37-year-old who had been staying with Kinyua’s family for weeks. After killing him, police say, he ate his victim’s heart and parts of his brain in one of the most stomach-turning cannibalism cases in recent history.
He was charged last Thursday with first-degree murder and is being held without bail.
