 Man Murders Boy, Eats His Brain of to Cure Epilepsy
In a shocking case, a Chinese man allegedly killed an 11-year-old boy and ate his brain, believing it would cure his epilepsy.

A superstitious man, Wang Chaoxu, of Qixian village, Yunnan, allegedly murdered Li Xuetang, whose dead body has been found buried in a grain field in a neighboring hamlet.

The victim's head was peeled back and part of his brain was removed.

Chaoxu was arrested after a villager Zhang Huansheng found him kneeling over the corpse.

Chaoxu told police he believed eating the brain with earthworms and ants would cure his illness.

He was apparently married to a nurse, who left him because of his illness.

Xuetang's mourning mother Yu Chaohu said that her son had disappeared late at night.

"It was getting dark, but I couldn't find my son anywhere in the village,' the Sun quoted her as saying.

She added: "I even asked the village head to broadcast on the radio to ask my son to come back home for dinner."

Chaohu was stopped from looking at her son's body, as it was too damaged.

She added: "I can't bear to think about what happened to him. I have nightmares thinking about it."

Police are investigating that Chaoxu might have also killed a three-year-old girl, who went missing the same day and was later found dead in a public toilet with her head split.

I was looking up dog attacks and this came up... they both follow same guide lines that ignorance of people and superstitious believes that the owner will not formulate or can't that the dog will hurt someone, the same could be said for the lady braking up with him, why didn't she see or care about the love that she gave and rejected not thinking something like this may happen? people don't want to hold themselves responsible for not caring or valuing the care given to someone by throwing them away or just not listening or caring of dog attacks of owners and people the create love and brake it off like your not human/animal with feelings is the same as hurting a animal abusively, neglect could be considered emotionally to social and unsocialized. if i had a something to blame its people that want someone that is stupid to take advantage of them then they can't stand the brake off, as of dogs being treated good at starting then locked in the back yard, same as growing with a human being and then being stopped creates problems.
