A man from Chihuahua, Mexico turned himself in to police a day after he shot his best friend dead, cut off his penis and fed it to his dog.
Mario Alberto Lizalde Reyes, 25, had been walking his dog with his 24-year old lifelong friend Mario Hernandez Banda when an argument broke out between them. According to Reyes, they were both drunk at that time, and Banda had tried to touch him ‘in a sexual way.’
‘After pushing him off, he went to urinate in an alley, so I followed him, pulled out my gun and shot him in the head,’ Reyes said in a televised confession. ‘I then took his knife off him and chopped off his penis as punishment and put it in a bag. But my dog was next to me and was sniffing at it so I decided to give it to him and he ate it.’
After his dog finished his meal, Reyes casually finished walking his dog and went home to sleep off the booze, leaving the bloodied body in the alley. But the next day, he felt a guilt so overwhelming that he decided to surrender himself to cops.
‘He came in covered in cuts and bruises, and said he had fought with his stepfather when he told him what he had done,’ said a police spokesman. ‘He then admitted killing his best friend and said that although his friend had tried sexually assaulting him, he was still a human being and didn’t deserve to die.’
Reyes now faces life in prison.
