Man Carries Girlfriend’s Head To Happy Hour

When your friend says he killed his girlfriend and is carrying her head around, it’s a good idea to at least check his bag. From Calgary Herald:

A Spanish man calmly drank beer with his mates in a bar with his murdered girlfriend’s head in a bag, press reports said Tuesday.

After leaving the bar on Sunday, the 34-year-old climbed an electrical tower, was hit by a shock and plunged 30 metres (100 feet) to the ground, dying that evening in hospital, they said.

According to a report in the ABC daily newspaper, citing witnesses, the man told friends in the bar in Cordoba, southern Spain, that he had decapitated his 30-year-old partner.

But he was so calm they did not believe him, despite bloodstains on his shirt.

    For their sake, I think it is best that his friends didn’t believe him. Any man who calmly beheads his girlfriend is likely going to have few qualms about dismembering friends.

    that was just a quick google, but these stats seem to throw some doubt on yours, no? incidentally, the only places i can find your references are white supremacist and “anti-feminist” sites, so i’d be interested to know where you came upon this information.
