A UNI student who lived in the same home as a missing man now feared dead was charged with first-degree murder after parts of a human body were found inside the house and in a nearby dumpster.

Now the suspect has admitted to eating portions of the man’s body parts, including his heart and brain.
Alexander Kinyua, 21, is being held on no bail.
Baltimore police served a search warrant Wednesday morning at the home of that missing man and made a gruesome find. Parts of a human body were found at the home along Terrapin Terrace in Joppatowne.
Police say the brother of the suspect went down to the laundry room of the house and saw a blanket on a box. He pulled off the blanket and saw two metal tins. Police say he opened them and saw a head and two hands.
The brother confronted Alexander Kinyua about this. Alexander Kinyua said they were animal remains and not human remains.

The brother then got his dad. The dad went downstairs and the items were gone.
The suspect was seen cleaning the container.
During a search warrant, police got the head and hands. They then interviewed the suspect.
He told them he cut up the victim with a knife and ate the heart and portions of his brain.
Monica Worrell, a sheriff’s spokeswoman, says the body parts found in the home had yet to be identified by the chief medical examiner late Wednesday. But Worrell says authorities believe they are those of the missing man, Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie. The 37-year-old vanished without a trace from his home last Friday.
