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.”
