A 40-year-old man in British Columbia with a split personality has been accused of the brutal murder and dismemberment of his 54-year-old flatmate after police discovered parts of the victim's body in a New Westminster apartment.
Ernie Allan Hosack allegedly killed his roommate of one month, Richard Falardeau and proceeded to chop him up into bits, placing his thumbs, anus, scrotum and testes in the freezer, his headless torso into a suitcase and left his skull near to a busy freeway.
The two men had shared the attic apartment at 14358 88th Avenue in New Westminster before Hosack is supposed to have killed Falardeau and when arrested and questioned by the police, Hosack took on an alter-ego claiming to be his dead-grandfather, who said about his actions, 'You could call it murder'.

Appearing in the British Columbia Supreme Court in New Westminster, Hosack is accused of the second-degree murder of his former flatmate in the summer of 2008.
Having met Quebec native Falardeau in a coffee shop in Surrey in June 2008, the older man moved into Hosack's apartment, but when his brother alerted police after not hearing from his sibling, the Surrey Royal Canadian Mounted Police arrived at Hosack's apartment where they made their gruesome discovery.
