Excuse me…calling Stephen King?

Have you heard about this? It happened last week and nobody that I’ve talked to has heard about it.

 It happened in Canada, so I know some of you know about it (I’m looking at you, Scoundrel)

WARNING: This is some sick, sick shit.

From the AP:

One moment, the quiet man near the back of the bus was minding his own business. The man hadn’t talked to anyone around him, and seemed to pay no attention to the younger fellow sitting next to him, who was listening to music on headphones.

The next moment, witnesses said, the older man stood up, still quiet, and repeatedly stabbed, then beheaded his younger victim.

“We heard this blood-curdling scream and turned around, and the guy was standing up, stabbing this guy repeatedly, like 40 or 50 times,” Garnet Caton said Thursday from a hotel in Brandon, Man., where he and other passengers had been taken to rest.

“There was no rage or anything. He was like a robot, stabbing the guy.”

Caton said the bus stopped and everyone scrambled to get out while the attacker started methodically carving up the victim’s body, not paying attention to anyone else.

Caton and the driver shut the bus door from the outside while they waited for police to arrive.

“We put our bodies up against the door, waiting for him to come out … and he went back and brought the head to the front and pretty much displayed it … and dropped it on the ground in front of us,” Caton said.

“All very calmly. He was wearing sunglasses. It was no big deal to him.”

Fellow passenger Cody Olmstead from Kentville, N.S., also recalled the chilling scene.

“The guy came to the front of the door with buddy’s head in his hands, decapitated. He dropped the head and went back and started cutting the body back up,” Olmstead said.

Then, the crazy fuck started eating him.

There’s more:

Caton said he heard a “blood-curdling scream” and turned around to see the attacker holding a large “Rambo” hunting knife above the victim, “continually stabbing him in the chest area.”

“He must have stabbed him 50 times or 60 times,” said Caton.

“Like, just everywhere, arms, legs, neck, chest, guts, wherever he could swing it, he got it,” said Olmstead.

“It looked kind of like a scuffle or an argument, you know, and then somebody’s, like, ‘Knife! Knife! Run!’ so I was running up the alleyway, slapping people telling them to get going, move, get off the bus. I got pushed over, some lady got pushed over, I was just making sure everybody was OK, and we all got off the bus,” said Olmstead

As panicked passengers fled the bus, “the attacker was over top of the victim … continually cutting him. I think the victim was gone at that point,” Caton said.

Trio tried to check on victim

Caton, the driver and a trucker who had stopped at the scene later boarded the vehicle to see if the victim was still alive.

“When we came back on the bus, it was visible at the end of the bus he was cutting the guy’s head off and pretty much gutting him up,” said Caton.

The attacker ran at them, Caton said, and they ran out of the bus, holding the door shut as he tried to slash at the trio.

When the attacker tried to drive the bus away, the driver disabled the vehicle, Caton said.

“While we were watching the door, he calmly walks up to the front with the head in his hand and the knife and just calmly stares at us and drops the head right in front of us,” said Caton.

“They did an awesome thing, holding him in there, because if not, what would have happened?” said Olmstead.

  1. What is really creepy is it was in Canada, you don’t think of Canadians goin psycho.

  2. hey it’s not our proudest moment. All I can think about when I hear about it and read about it is why on a bus full of people couldn’t one or two stand up and try to save this guy?

  3. @scoundrel

    I don’t think there was any opportunity to “save this guy”. It was a randon act, without warning. If I were on a bus full of people who were half asleep and woke to see a crazy ass repeatedly stabbing some poor sod, I would look for the nearest exit. You would too.

  4. What really shocked people was the randomness of the event, and how utterly unpredictable it was.

    From a personal perspective, the frustrating part was that the killer made a statement at his arraignment to the effect of “Kill me” for his having committed the crime, knowing damn well that he left China (where he would have been executed for what he did) and came to Canada (where he wouldn’t).
