Student Charged With 1st-Degree Murder In Cannibalism Case

Post  AnnaEsse on Fri 1 Jun - 11:15

JOPPATOWNE, Md. (WJZ)— A chilling story unfolds in Harford County where family members find the chopped up body parts of a missing man. And now, the suspect admits to committing acts of cannibalism on that body.

Meghan McCorkell has the stunning twist to this murder investigation.

Both the suspect and the victim were students at Morgan State University. But it was inside a Joppatowne home they shared where police say an unimaginable crime occurred.

Behind the door of a townhouse on Terrapin Terrace in Joppatowne, a house of horrors. It’s here police say 21-year-old Alexander Kinyua confessed to eating the heart and parts of the brain of a missing man.
Police say Kinyua’s brother went down to the laundry room of the house and saw a blanket on a box. He pulled off the blanket and saw two metal tins. Police say he opened them and saw a head and two hands. When Kinyua’s brother confronted him about this, police say Kinyua said they were animal remains and not human.

The brother then got his dad. The dad went downstairs and the items were gone.

Kinyua’s brother called police.

“Human remains, specifically a head and hands, were recovered on the main floor of the residence,” Sheriff L. Jesse Bane of Harford County said.

Police believe they belong to 37-year-old Kujoe Agyei-Kodie, a family friend who was living at the house.

The rest of Kodie’s body was found in a church dumpster on Trimble Road just blocks away.

Two days before the murder, Kinyua was released on bond for another assault.

WJZ has learned Kinyua was in the process of being expelled from school after he attacked another student with a baseball bat in the dorms.

A student who didn’t want to be identified tells WJZ: “I just heard it was a random attack on a student, a student here. He was just walking down and stairs and boom! He just hit him.”

That student suffered a skull fracture, fractures in the arm and shoulder and was also blinded in the left eye.

Kinyua was out on bond when he was arrested for Agyei-Kodie’s murder. His parents were trying to raise funds for his defense in the assault case, holding a fundraiser at a community church in Northeast Baltimore.

Friends say Kinyua had a drastic personality change after he was kicked out of the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) program in January for disciplinary reasons.

“I heard he may have been a bit out of the ordinary at times,” Damete Roberts, a sophomore at Morgan State, said.

The victim was also a grad student at Morgan State. Agyei-Kodie– a native of Ghana– held several master’s degrees.

He’d lived in the house with the Kinyua family for six months.

“It’s very scary. Especially knowing that it’s so close to home,” neighbor Melinda Kraft said.

A grisly murder and still no motive.

Detectives say that so far, the suspect has shown no remorse for the attack. They say that while he is cooperative and has confessed, he would not reveal why he did it.

According to published reports, he recently posted online statements about cults, ethnic cleansing and school shootings.The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is helping in the investigation.

Kinyua was represented by a public defender in court on Thursday.

Police have not ruled out the possibility of more arrests.

“By no means is the investigation over. We are looking at every angle. We are looking at is there a possibility that there are other suspects?” Verzi said.

The lead detective told WJZ he has no reason to believe that Kinyua was lying about eating the victim’s body parts.

A judge denied bail for Kinyua on Thursday. He’s charged with first-degree murder.

Horrendous, kitti. While I don't believe that violent films or games directly cause anything, I noticed that the film "Hostel," was on Channel 5 a few nights ago. Before video and DVD, that kind of film would have been given an 18 certificate in cinemas. Young people would not have been able to watch. With the advent of movies to watch at home, that changed, and children were able to watch what I consider to be totally inappropriate films. I also think the programmers for TV either don't know or don't care that it doesn't matter that a programme is shown after the so-called 9 o'clock "watershed." The kids are not all in bed!

I must admit that film did scare me, I think it was because it COULD happen in real life, could be happening somewhere in the world as we speak too.


God there are some vile people walking this earth.

Also, you had to go to the cinema to watch these types off films and pay too which kids couldn't afford and weren't allowed on.


The only time I went to the cinema was Saturday morning pictures , i really enjoyed it and the films were 'innocent' then, not like what kids can view today and some off them aren't even pg and they have violence in them.

My mother took us each Saturday afternoon to the children's club at the local cinema: many years ago, because I recall it was sevenpence for her and fourpence for each child. We had thruppence each for sweets from Jeanie Clarke's shop. There was always a main film and a 'B' film as well as the serials. I know that kids used to try to get in to see the more adult films when they were teenagers, but they would only have been a couple of years short of the legal age, not quite a few years as kids are today who can watch anything at home.

After the ghastly story which opened this topic, it's nice to lighten the mood with some childhood memories. It was the highlight of my week to go to what was called Saturday morning pictures. It was sixpence to go in but, if you were really rich one week, it was ninepence to go upstairs in the circle. I don't remember any adults being brave enough to go, the noise was unbelievable though thankfully it normally subsided when the programme started.

I've found a YouTube clip of the song we were obliged to sing before the good stuff started.
