A repeat felon has confessed to killing his neighbor, cutting out her heart and feeding it to his family before murdering his uncle and a four-year-old girl, Oklahoma authorities say.
Lawrence Paul Anderson, 42, allegedly stabbed the neighbor, Andrea Lynn Blankenship, to death at her home in Chickasha on February 9.
He then went back to his house and stabbed three people – his uncle, aunt and their granddaughter – the same day, according to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.
Police were called to the home and found the uncle, 67-year-old Leon Pye, and the child, Kaeos Yates, injured. She was pronounced dead in an ambulance en route to the hospital.
The aunt, Delsie Pye, was also stabbed in both eyes but survived.
In an interview with investigators Anderson revealed the gruesome final meal he fed his family after murdering Blankenship.
