According to international media, a man allegedly decapitated his dad before covering himself in his intestines and wandering the streets.
Dmitry Ponomarenko, 30, was arrested yesterday, January 20th, by police in Odessa, southern Ukraine.
He had emerged covered in blood from his flat and was smashing cars with his dad’s head, local media reports said.
“A naked and bloodied man, wrapped in guts and holding a man’s head, came from the front, sat on a bench, and lit a cigarette,” one resident said.
“he is a God who is not worshipped,” Ponomarenko told police.
The police found the corpse of his father, Igor Ponomarenko, 53, in his block of flats.
Aleksandr Demchenko, 32, was maimed and killed as well.
“We received calls from shocked individuals reporting a man walking in the neighborhood with a severed head in his hand,” a police spokesman said.
Ponomarenko was arrested and, if convicted of double murder, could face 15 years in jail.
The previous day, a source reported he had been fired from his job at the Duke Hotel for being under the influence of drugs and improper conduct.
“Ponomarenko reportedly told witnesses “he had to” when asked why he had carried out the killings.
