I Think I’m Going to Skip the Fava Beans. Thanks.

mccuin.jpgTwenty-five-year-old Christopher McCuin had an unusual item on his menu over the weekend. When police responded to a 911 call at his East Texas home, they found “a human ear boiling in a pot on a stovetop and a hunk of flesh impaled on a fork sitting atop a plate on the kitchen table.”

The ear and flesh hunk belonged to his girlfriend, now dead, and while police cannot say for sure whether McCuin ate bits of his lady friend, the evidence — cooked body parts impaled on a fork — seems to suggest as much.

Officials believe the horrific chain of events began when Jana Shearer, McCuin’s girlfriend, was taken by McCuin from her home late Friday night and killed.
Smith said McCuin then drove to his estranged wife’s home, where he stabbed his wife’s boyfriend, William Veasley, 42. Veasley was in intensive care Sunday night.
McCuin was still in that home when deputies arrived, but he jumped into his car and escaped after a short chase, Smith said. “We did not know at the time that he had murdered anyone,” Smith said. “We thought it was a disturbance or an assault.”
McCuin wasn’t seen again until Saturday morning, when he arrived at the home he shared with his mother and called her into the garage so she could “come see what he had done,” Smith said.
His mother and her boyfriend saw the remains of Shearer, authorities said. McCuin’s mother and her boyfriend fled the home and flagged down a police officer. McCuin dialed 911 after they left and told an emergency dispatcher he had killed Shearer and was boiling her body parts, Smith said.
When sheriff deputies arrived, McCuin barricaded himself in the home for a short time before coming out. After he emerged, a tactical team entered and found Shearer’s body, Sgt. Gary Middleton said. They also found the grisly scene in the kitchen.
After McCuin was arrested and placed in the back of a patrol car, he kicked out the vehicle’s side window before being put in additional restraints, Middleton said.

You know you’re a messed up dude when your mother calls the cops on you, huh? Of course, cooking up your girlfriend and then showing your mother the scene were also some clues.

I actually live in the town this occured in, it was disgusting. The papers had a field day with all the adjectives used to describe everything. A cop was quotes about how weird it was.
