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.

  1. 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.

    slightly off topic, but guess which demographic is most likely to to be murdered by a spouse/partner…

    black men.

    …and there it goes.

  6. No racist agenda in bringing that up, of course.

  7. No sexist agenda in that comment, of course.

    “On average, two women a week are killed by a violent partner or ex-partner. This constitutes nearly 40% of all female homicide victims. (Povey, (ed.), 2005; Home Office, 1999; Department of Health, 2005.)”

    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.
