Sick Vampire Butcher Kills himself In Jail (Wotta Headline...!)
DailyRecordUK ^ | 11/16/04 | Richard Elias

Posted on 11/16/2004 7:34:43 AM PST by KentTrappedInLiberalSeattle

A MURDERER dubbed the vampire killer after he drank his best pal's blood and ate his skull has been found dead in prison.

Allan Menzies, 23, was found hanged in his cell at Shotts Prison in Lanarkshire yesterday morning.

He was jailed in October 2003 after being convicted of bludgeoning his friend to death.

During his trial, the court heard he had drunk Thomas McKendrick's blood from a whisky glass and then eaten a part of his skull. Judge Roderick Macdonald QC branded Menzies an 'evil and dangerous psychopath' and recommended he serve at least 18 years in prison.

The former security guard, of Fauldhouse, West Lothian, claimed he was ordered by a vampire character from the horror film Queen Of The Damned to kill McKendrick.

Menzies carried out the attack, during which he battered and stabbed his childhood friend, at his home in December 2002.

Giving evidence at his trial at the High Court in Edinburgh, Menzies said: 'If you do not murder someone, then you do not become a vampire.'

After killing McKendrick, Menzies dumped the body.

Police raided his home and found notes in which Menzies claimed to be a vampire.

Sentencing him, the judge told him: 'You are an evil, violent and highly dangerous man.'

Yesterday, a spokesman for the Scottish Prison Service said: 'A prisoner at HMP Shotts was found dead.

'A fatal accident inquiry will be held in due course.'

How do you eat a skull? Maybe they meant the brain? Regardless, there are some pretty sick people out there.

Works for me.

BTW, can you imagine what this kid must have grown up around in order to be this demented at such a young age?

Thank God nobody else saw that movie, or we’d likely have an epidemic on our hands.

There's a lot of sick bastards in the world. I'm just bothered by the fact that we have such hideous forms of entertainment now, divorced from any manner of decent values, that there are too many of them getting all their sick ideas reinforced.

I grew up watching
films like this and they never
instilled the slightest

urge in me to eat
a woman's skull or her brains.
But that's all I'll say . . .

I'd never heard of this nut. He was obviously insane, as evident by the fact that he chose to eat his friend's skull instead of the much tastier and chewable cartilage parts.

LOL.I can't watch really gross movies and yes, I doubt that a movie like that would have the same effect on a sane person as it would a sick person.

Sick Vampire Butcher Kills himself In Jail

I was going to ask "How does a vampire kill himself? Did he bite himself in the neck?" but I see he hanged himself.

The former security guard, of Fauldhouse, West Lothian, claimed he was ordered by a vampire character from the horror film Queen Of The Damned to kill McKendrick.

I missed that part - it must have been one of the deleted/extended scenes. I'd hate to see what he would have done, had he been watching the Zoolander DVD instead.

If he was an American his name would probably be John "Wayne" Menzies or Allan "Ladd" Menzies

Sentencing him, the judge told him: 'You are an evil, violent and highly dangerous man.'

The judge forgot to add: "You're a mean man, Mr. Wizard!"

so when is Meathead Reiner going to impose a special tax on movie tickets to go into a slush fund to educate children on the perils of movie-watching?

The most shocking thing is that they thought he only deserved 18 years in prison. Sheesh.
