This killer stabbed his ex-girlfriend to death, and then ate her

A convicted killer who was out on bail has been accused of allegedly breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s house, stabbing her to death and then eating her heart, lungs and brain.

 

Joseph Oberhansley, 33, allegedly tried to break into Tammy Jo Blanton’s house in Jeffersonville, Indiana at 3am, New York Times reports.

Police were called but left with no sign of an intruder.

Oberhansley then allegedly returned to the home and carried out his brutal and vicious crime.

When Blanton didn’t arrive for work the next day, concerned colleagues called 911 and officers were sent to check on her.

It was in the home that police found her mutilated body in the bath covered by a tarpaulin.

Blanton, 46, suffered fatal injuries to her head, which included a crushed skull, neck and torso but what was more disturbing was the plate and cooking utensils covered in blood and bone.

Her body tissue was also found in a garbage can.

Oberhansley who was still inside the property was restrained and arrested by officers and was charged with murder, abuse of a corpse and breaking and entering.

“He further admitted to cooking a section of her brain and eating it,” the arrest report said, according to Wave3.

Oberhansley appeared in Clark Circuit Court.

“You’ve got the wrong guy,” claimed Oberhansley who denied all charges and said that his name was, in fact, “Zeus Brown.”

Oberhansley has a previous conviction for manslaughter, shooting dead his 17-year-old girlfriend Sabrina Elder, in 1998, The Courier-Journal reports.

He reportedly shot and killed Elder, who’d recently given birth to their son, at his grandmother’s Salt Lake City home before trying to commit suicide.

He was released from prison in 2012, but is currently charged in two other separate cases — for a cross-state police car chase and allegedly putting a man in a chokehold.

Prosecutors had asked for a $25,000 bail to be set before he could be released again, but this was lowered to $5,000, allowing him to be released for $500.

He is now being held without bail and his trial for murder has been set for February 16.
