Only a zombie could eat their own family, right? In a tragic and heartbreaking tale, a young mother was accused of cannibalism after a nurse found her mouth clamped around her newborn's arm. Instantly the nurse struggled to get 24-year-old Li Zhenghua to let go of her son, but the new mother refused. Quickly she was sedated and the baby was removed, although he did suffer bruising and bleeding from the attack. It is unknown what caused her to engage in such gruesome behavior, yet apparently Li was kicked out by her mother-in-law and was roaming the streets of Southern China for weeks leading up to her giving birth.
What began as a seemingly tall tale took on real life when Harvard professor Wade Davis took interest in the story and made a startling discovery. The tale begins when a woman saw her brother walking heavy-footed and with vacant eyes in a market in Haiti, 18 years after she watched his lifeless body be placed in the ground! Then man, Clairvuis Narcisse, had long ago contracted a mysterious fever, and within two weeks was pronounced dead and buried. Yet according to Narcisse, he was actually conscious the entire time, but was completely unable to move or speak. He heard the doctors pronounce him dead, felt the sheet cover his body and could hear the scoops of fresh dirt hitting to top of his coffin. His story was that a witch doctor had resurrected him, then controlled his mind and body and forced him to be his slave. While sounding like the plot of a movie (it later became one thanks to Wes Craven), Davis traveled to Haiti and discovered what he called "zombie powder" - a potent mixture that puts victims into a death-like state. The witch doctor would then return with an antidote that would revive the person but keep them in a pharmacologically-induced trance for days, months or even years.
You may think most Canadians are too busy saying "sorry" and feasting on poutine to ever behave in a zombie-like fashion, but that apparently isn't always the case. Cue in the story of Vince Weiguang Li, who was sitting next to a sleeping passenger, the poor, poor Tim McLean, on a bus when he went full living-dead crazy. Li savagely attacked McLean and DECAPITATED the guy. He then went to town eating his eyes, ears, nose and tongue while terrified passengers fled for their lives. Currently in a maximum security mental facility, Li later admitted the attack stemmed from him believing that McLean was an alien doomed to kill many. Though why he felt the need to eat said alien, is a mystery that perhaps we don't want to know the answer to.
