21-year-old Lloyd Bagtong, was arrested on Thursday, December 5, for beheading a woman and using her brain to eat rice.
According to reports, Lloyd Bagtong, told the Philippine Daily Inquirer that he was drunk and hungry when the woman tried to speak to him in the early morning in English, which he didn’t understand.
“Lloyd said he killed the victim because she was speaking in English. This probably irritated him,” the Inquirer quoted Talisayan police chief Maribeth Ramoga as saying.
It is believed the suspect killed and decapitated her at the scene using a large machete before he then used a piece of cloth to carry the head back to his home.
The police recovered the woman’s skull from his property, along with a piece of bloody cloth they believe was used to carry it there.
Lloyd Bagtong, who is now in police custody and has been sent for psychiatric evaluation.
