Florida Man Committed To Insane Asylum In Brain-Eating Cannibalism Axe Murder Case


Cannibalism as a means to expand the doors of perception, with sake. Via ABC News:

A Florida man who killed a vagrant with an ax and ate his brain and eyes has been committed to a maximum-security psychiatric hospital in Connecticut after being found not guilty by reason of insanity.

Tyree Lincoln Smith, 36, was ordered committed Monday by a three-judge panel in Bridgeport Superior Court. Judges John Kavanewsky, John Blawie and Maria Kahn were urged by a prosecutor and social worker to protect society from Smith.

His cousin, Nicole Rabb, testified that she saw Smith in December 2011 carrying a bloody ax and chopsticks. She said Smith told her he killed a man with the ax, ate his brain and eyeballs and drank sake in a local cemetery.

A psychiatrist testified that Smith heard voices that told him to eat Gonzalez’s brain to better understand human behavior and eat his eyes to gain vision into the “spiritual realm.”

      Its a bird, its a plane… oh wait, its just Florida Man.

    • What the hell is going on down there?!

      • Lotsa nut jobs in Florida. Actually, I read somewhere on the interwebs that this phenoma has to do with police files in FLA being more accessible to the public than they are in other states.

  2. I abhor stereotypes and generalizations about people….but something sinister is afoot in Florida, the people are insane.

          11C but on deployment most of our work was 11B because we were attached to an armor bat.

          • hah. I’m a FiSTer, but detailed recruiter….it blows. I love 11C’s man, by best buds. Bravos are cool too I guess. I’ve always heard that armor is the worst, I was always light (10th MTN). FFE bro! Alright, I’ll stop now.

    I was unsure if this indwelling was Mi-go or Great Race. The details of the chopsticks and sake clinch it – definitely Mi-go.

  6. Well this is food for thought.
