I’ve been following the gruesome story of a man who murdered and decapitated a total stranger on a greyhound bus, cusious as to what might explain this bizzare behavior. People continue to say that the murderer, now identified as 40-year-old Vince Weiguang Li, did not know the 22 year old victim. Stranger still, the two didn’t seem to have talked at all. In fact the victim was asleep when the attack began. What in the world caused this…?
I think this may be the key:
As the three guarded the door with a crow bar and a hammer, the attacker went back to the body and calmly came to the front of the bus to show off the head, Caton said.
Cody Olmstead, another passenger, said the man “dropped the head and went back and started cutting the body.” Olmstead said the man later use the head to taunt police.
Olmstead said many were watching the movie “The Legend of Zorro” when the violence erupted.
Those of you who saw the film, which stars Antonio Banderas, may recall that the villain keeps the severed head of Banderas’ brother in a jar of formaldehyde on his desk. I’m guessing that’s what prompted this nut to do what he did. If not the killing itself, at least the decapitation. Not sure I’ll be able to watch that film again.
