    Canada - Bus beheading man 'dined on victim'

    Bus beheading man 'dined on victim'


    A CHINESE immigrant who stabbed, gutted and beheaded a fellow passenger on a bus travelling across Canada last week also ate the victim and pocketed his nose, lips and ear, a court heard today.

    Vince Weiguang Li, 40, of Edmonton faces a second-degree murder charge in the horrific case.

    The victim has been identified by friends as Tim McLean, 22, who was returning home to Winnipeg from a job as a carnival worker in Edmonton in Western Canada.

    In his second court appearance, Mr Li was overheard saying "please kill me".
    Prosecutors said police observed him eating pieces of his victim when they surrounded the bus on a desolate highway about 90 kilometres west of Winnipeg immediately following the July 30 attack.

    Mr Li had decapitated the victim, sliced off an ear and bits of flesh and was taunting police and bystanders with the head, refusing to leave the bus and screaming "I have to stay on the bus forever", the Crown said.

    According to reports, McLean had been asleep, his cheek pressed against the window of the bus when his assailant struck suddenly near dusk, stabbing him repeatedly in the chest with a "big Rambo knife".

    The other 34 passengers and the driver were jolted by "blood-curdling screams" and fled, bracing the door on their way out to trap the assailant inside the bus, witness Garnet Caton told public broadcaster CBC.

    McLean was stabbed 20-40 times, said prosecutor Joyce Dalmyn.

    After a three-hour standoff, Mr Li tossed a knife and scissors out of a broken window of the bus, jumped out and was subdued by police, the court heard.

    In his pants pocket, police found several body parts hacked from the victim's face, said Ms Dalmyn.

    According to reports, Mr Li worked mostly solitary jobs, including delivering newspapers and as a church custodian, since his arrival in Canada in 2004.

    People who knew Mr Li said the accused had showed signs of mental health troubles in the years leading up to the attack, but refused help.

    His estranged wife told police he'd once been in hospital for four days for strange behaviour, the court heard.

    Mr Li did not speak in court. He nodded yes when asked by the judge if he understood the seriousness of the charge and shook his head no when asked if he wanted a lawyer.
    "He doesn't seem to want to engage in any discourse," his interim defence lawyer Randy Janis said after meeting with Mr Li to try to convince him to accept legal counsel.
    "His few responses are non-verbal, there's very little eye contact. Occasionally, he'll nod or shake his head to answer," he said, describing Mr Li as withdrawn.

    The judge ordered a psychiatric evaluation of the accused before his next scheduled court appearance on September 8.

    Off with him and it won't happen again, or give him over to the bleeding hearts for counselling and rehab...I know what I'd prefer.

    He requires therapy, counseling, a loving home, some good, free meds and a big hug.

    Yes, a big hug.

    (Inventory your fleshy bits immediately afterward.)

    What is the world coming to? 34 passengers on a bus hear blood-curdling screams & race to get out of the bus, bracing the door to trap the victim with his assailant. No-one tries to help the victim.

    3 hours later (plenty of time for victim to die & all sorts of unpleasantness to occur) assailant jumps out of his own accord. There was only him & a dead guy in the bus - hardly a hostage situation, why not shoot him?

    And he'd shown signs of mental disturbance before, but FA was done about it.

    Words fail me.

    I presumed the victim was dead at that point. One or two jabs to the heart with a Rambo knife, and that's all she wrote.

    There was only him & a dead guy in the bus - hardly a hostage situation, why not shoot him?
    What's to gain by shooting him then?

    Very weird indeed.
