Police in a British village got an eyeful on Thursday after they saw a man eating a woman alive inside a hostel room.
According to the BBC, 34-year old Matthew Williams was tasered to death after he was found eating the face of 22-year old Cerys Marie Yemm inside a Sirhowys Arm hostel room. The hotel guards had broken into his room after he failed to open for them … and that was when they saw the horrible attack and called cops.
‘This animal was eating this girl to death,’ said an eyewitness. ‘He went Hannibal Lecter on the woman, he gouged her eyeball out, ate them and ate half her face,’ another eyewitness said.
Sirhowy Arms Hostel serves as a halfway house for ex offenders in Argoed, a village near Ms Yemm’s hometown of Blackwood. Williams had just been released from jail two weeks earlier after serving five years for attacking his neighbor.
According to Yemm’s friend, ‘They had been drinking and he persuaded her back to the hotel and said he’d get her a taxi home. Once he got her back in the hotel he must have invited her up to his room and that’s where he attacked her.’
South Wales police confirmed that the attacker and victim knew each other. Yemm died from her face injuries. A police spokesman declined to give more details, saying simply that a murder investigation is underway.
