Chinks kill a man and boil his head for “medicinal purposes”

June 29, 2009

Who knows where Lin Zongxiu’s information came from, but someone, somewhere had informed her that soup made from a man’s head was a remedy for psychiatric problems.

Not only did Ms. Lin believe this nugget of folk wisdom, but she decided to put it to the test.

On the one hand, you can’t blame her: She was presumably desperate to help her 25-year-old daughter, who had suffered from mental illness for years. On the other hand, well, let’s just say you don’t pop into your corner grocery and buy a man-head. The implications are obvious.

Lin Zongxiu’s and her husband did what they had to do, namely, hire a hitman to “gather ingredients” for the medicinal soup. This consisted chiefly of knocking out a passing 76-year-old drunk and amputating his top bit, that is, the part containing the eyes, ears, nose, and mouth. Into the pot it went, for a thorough cooking (Sichuan style?).

Unfortunately, the couple did not get away with their crime, nor did their employee. The killer was caught and has been sent to jail for the rest of his life, and Ms. Lin will do time for concealing the evidence.

As for the daughter, any benefit she may have gotten from drinking the soup surely went up in smoke when her mother informed her what was in it.

It’s enough to drive you crazy.
