Man Kills Mother, Mutilates Self; Apparently Thinks He's An Aztec

FINDLAY, OHIO - An emotionally disturbed Hancock County man strangled his mother, beat her in the head with a crudely made hammer, and then, in what investigators say was a ritual of his own making, he cut off her head, right foot, and both hands. He also cut off one his testicles. He had been reading about Aztec culture, which authorities say may have spurred the bizarre killing of his mother.

Sheriff Heldman said the body parts were in a wooden planter box in the house. Deputies found an array of reading material in the house they suspect may have sparked the violence - books on astronomy, Aztec culture, and a novel called "The Crystal Skull." "He was emotionally disturbed," Sheriff Heldman said. "In talking to the family last week and again this morning, they said he would be very rational and very normal, and then he'd become irrational. He would be talking and pacing. He would be hearing voices."

So, anyone wanna take bets on how long it takes some jackassed group to go protesting 'this kind of literature'? LOL...of course not, this was an 'emotionally disturbed man'. Nice to see the PERSON getting blamed, not the books. People reading horror novels, listening to heavy metal, playing D&D, etc., don't become killers and freaks. You are your own person. Stop blaming and censoring the books.
