Man 'cloaked' himself in mother's skin
A DUTCHMAN has been accused of murdering his mother, flaying her and then cloaking himself in her skin during a street festival.
The 42-year-old, identified only as Roland Z, was held after police in the southern town of Vlaardingen received reports that a man was causing a disturbance.
He was said to be wearing a strange suit or draped in a flag and shouting quotations from the Bible.
"This man was arrested while he stood attempting to direct traffic," said Henry Hambeukers, a police spokesman. "He said immediately that he had killed his mother."
Investigators found the body of the 76-year-old woman in her apartment.
"This man vandalised her corpse after her death. We are not discussing details out of sympathy for the mans mother, and for him too," Mr Hambeukers said.
He could not confirm reports the man had a history of mental illness and had joined a Christian cult, but said police were looking at his background.
Dutch media was filled with gruesome details of the killing. Reports said the man wandered for several hours during the carnival, a popular street festival in the southern Netherlands. Many thought he was drunk and wearing a costume.
Sounds like he watched "Silence of the Lambs" one too many times.
Shouting quotations from the Bible, while directing traffic and wearing your mother's skin...does it get much sicker than that?
Well, here's a nice, demented item to start the Saturday morning.

Think I'll look around for a Kerry Sighting thread to change the mental picture. Yuk
He wanted back in the womb REAL bad.
You know, just when you think you've heard of every human wierdness imagineable, there comes along a story like this. There will likely be a Lifetime movie about this one in a few months.
OMG, this is soooo sick.
That kid always did get under her skin.
Was he wearing her wooden shoes?
I thought this was about Ed Gein at first.
Tlacaxipehualiztli isn't until the end of March.
This is too disgusting to be worthwhile discussion, and too far away to be worthy of being considered newsworthy in America. This is a big planet, and I am not in search of the most disgusting element of it.
Why post this?
[I'm terrible at puns and am always amazed at other's ability to come up with them]
You've never been to California, have you?
No such thing.
Your right I should of titled it with the words(Caution Graphic)
I think the title was descriptive enough... I just don't see why a sick freak in Scotland is worthy of posting here... It's a sick voyeur that digs this stuff.
I concur completely: why post this here? More to the point, how can anyone joke about this? I suppose I considered jokes about such things to be the purview of the very immature or the very jaded. I'm disappointed that so many here are poking fun at such a horrific tragedy...
Lots of weird stuff coming out of Holland these days.
