(NYPOST) – A Philippines man was busted for allegedly beheading a woman, then eating her brains as a topping on his meal, according to a report.
Lloyd Bagtong, 21, was arrested Thursday on suspicion of killing the unidentified woman, whose headless body was found in Barangay Punta near his home, Channel News Asia reported.
He was seen walking on a road with the victim before the incident — then spotted again fleeing from the residence as rumors swirled about the decapitated woman, according to the Philippine Daily Inquirer.
Police said he likely killed the woman early Thursday, using a garden tool to chop off her head, the reports said.
Bagtong admitted to the killing and led police to the victim’s head, which he tossed in a hole not far from his house, the Daily Tribune reported.
He told authorities that he was hungry and used her brain as a topping on rice.
Bagtong — who may be suffering from a mental condition — remains in custody as he waits for murder charges to be filed against him, according to the reports.
