German Teenager Eats Roommate ::

Reported by Olly @ Trackitdown on September 3, 2007

Vienna cops arrested Robert Ackermann, 19, this week and accused him of murder and cannibalism after they broke into his flat and discovered the brain and tongue of his 49-year-old flat mate on a plate.

Mr. Ackerman was discovered next to his flatmate’s corpse with blood around his mouth after reportedly telling a cleaning lady who entered the homeless hostel ‘Look what’s happened’.

Cannibalism expert Reinhard Haller told the Times the killer was probably suffering from either “a severe psychosis or extreme sadistic urges”, while investigators suggested he was suffering from paranoid schizophrenia, a point seemingly backed by neighbours’ statements who told reporters they’d previously heard him baying at the moon 'like a werewolf'.

“'We were watching the television one night when we realised there was a sort of howling coming from outside,” next-door neighbour Nadica Drikic, recalled, “We looked and saw him squatted down on all fours howling at the Moon. I am sure he was not wearing anything. It was really freaky,” she added.

The brutal killing came days after property agents announced the sale of Armin Meiwes’ luxury 27 bedroom mansion in Rotenberg, Germany for just £50,000. Herr Meiwes is in jail after killing and eating Bernd Brandes on the premises, after finding his willing victim via an Internet personal ad in 2001.

In more cannibal killer news, American psycho and Fatboy Slim fan Kevin Underwood was given a new trial date of February 19, 2008, last week to face charges of killing and attempting to eat his ten-year-old neighbour Jamie Rose Bolin.

The keen techno fan and follower of the Church of the Subgenius wrote extensively on blogs for a number of years before and even after the horrific killing, in September 2004 writing ‘the first blog makes me want to kill people. Speaking of killing people...

“Yesterday I was really depressed the entire day. I was so depressed yesterday, it was one off those times where I'm so depressed that my chest hurts. I wonder if that happens to anybody else? When I get really depressed that happens to me. Like usual, the main thing I've been getting depressed about lately is my lack of a sex life,” he complained.

“I mean it, I really need a girlfriend. It's not just depressing anymore, it's actually starting to have a negative effect on my mental state I think. For example, my fantasies are just getting weirder and weirder. Dangerously weird. If people knew the kinds of things I think about anymore, I'd probably be locked away. No probably about it, I know I would be,” he wrote

I got up at 10:00 a.m., which is about an hour early for me. Then I cleaned my hamster's cage. Then I watched part of Goldmember, which I bought last night. Then about 1:00 I went over to Chris' house. He had to go shopping, so we went to Wal-Mart . . .’)
