Man who beheaded fellow bus passenger found not guilty

A CHINESE man who beheaded and hacked a Canadian bus passenger to pieces has been found not guilty of murder on mental grounds.

Vince Weiguang Li, 40, who had been charged with murdering 22-year-old Tim McLean on a Canadian Greyhound bus on July 30, 2008, has been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia.

Li had repeatedly stabbed Mr McLean, who had been asleep on the seat next to him, sawn off his head, removed his internal organs, pocketed his nose, tongue and an ear, and taunted police and bystanders with the severed head.

Police said in court documents Li "appeared to smell, and then eat parts of Tim McLean's flesh" and "lick blood from his hands" as they surrounded the bus on a desolate highway 90 kilometres west of Winnipeg, in western Canada, soon after the attack.

Authorities found body parts littered throughout the bus, some in white plastic bags.

Mr McLean's eyes and a third of his heart were also missing, and it is presumed Li ate them, said a pathologist in court files, though Li denies this.

The other 35 passengers and the driver were jolted by "blood-curdling screams" and fled, said witnesses, bracing the door after their escape to trap Li inside the bus.

This happened in Canada, it is a Canadian court that is judging him not guilty by reason of insanity, not China.

That’s even scarier. Let’s hope the world ends soon.

“Killers benefit China’s national interests (i.e disposing of the excess population). They are only interesting in executing innocent people”

That is true....think about Tiamin (sp) Square...that guy standing in from of the tank....

It was a weird story. Thread after thread here began following it last summer as soon as it broke. I remember a video interview of the passengers. They were caught by surprise. A guy sitting nearby claimed he didn’t even realize what was happening at first and that he either made an attempt to stop the killer, or considered it, but by then the victim was gone, I think. So, people started running out of the bus. Then he and a few other passengers blocked the door so the killer couldn’t leave the bus.

I agree with that.

Now instead they are just giving him an opportunity to do it again some day.

“More at this link. As other people here pointed out, he’ll be institutionalized, but probably not long enough: “

To me, that is an affront to common decency..what about the surviving family that has to deal with their loss? The mentally unfit diagnosis is a copout is many cases...JMHO

Vince Weiguang Li is obviously enduring terrible suffering.

The state should euthanize him and end the pain.

It is effectively illegal to carry concealed handguns in Canada. There is a permit that allows people to carry if they can prove they need to protect their lives but the permit is very rarely issued. [wiki]

Study that name for possible clues.

I wonder what sort of history this murderer has? I doubt he was a reasonably normal person who just one day carried out this vicious murder as his first abnormal act.

Thanks for the diagnosis. Maybe they didn’t cover it in the 101 class you slept through.

It would have been easy enough to sleep through, but I didn't sleep through it. It was decades ago, though. :-)

...did a quick search and read. I probably confused in my forgetfulness, the caution against confusing paranoid personality disorder with paranoid schizophrenia.
