A man has been arrested and accused of murdering a woman, decapitating her and then feasting on her brain.
The 21-year-old reportedly beheaded the victim ‘because she spoke to him in English’.
He was charged in the Philippines after admitting his crimes, report the Sun Star.
The Filipino suspect – identified by police as Lloyd Bagtong – confessed to beheading the woman with a garden tool and eating the inside of her head.
Bagtong said he was “drunk and hungry” when he committed the gruesome crime.
The paper said the woman’s headless body was found ‘without upper garment’s by residents of Punta Santiago, Talisayan on Thursday.
Police Captain Maribeth Ramoga, police chief of Talisayan town, told the paper that the suspect allegedly could not understand the woman because she spoke to him in English.
Investigators claim Bagtong has already admitted to killing the woman and even told authorities the location of the victim’s head inside his house in Sitio Caulogan, Casibole.
Capt. Ramoga said witnesses saw Bagtong at the crime scene with a bolo tucked in his waist.
He said they are also set to consult a psychiatrist to determine the mental state of the suspect.
Bagtong is presently being held in custody at the Talisayan Police Station and will be charged with murder.
Meanwhile, Capt. Ramoga urged those with missing kin to check the still unidentified body of the victim at Gomez Funeral Homes in Talisayan town as they try to identify her.
