The American media were stunned by a harrowing incident in Las Vegas where a man was discovered to have gruesomely mutilated his victim, including eating parts of their face. The police found the body with an eye and an ear missing, and a 29-year-old man has been charged with the murder.

True crime enthusiasts are captivated by ongoing stories of psychopaths, serial killers, and rapists. Writers and screenwriters are dying to document the deeds of infamous criminals, some of whom have attained a level of celebrity.

This fascination isn't new—serial killer Ted Bundy received hundreds of letters from admirers. A modern example of a criminal celebrity is Gypsy Rose Blanchard, who murdered her mother and claimed to have received thousands of marriage proposals while in prison. It seems there will be no shortage of material for those who create content about criminal tales.

Was there a case of cannibalism in Las Vegas?

On Sunday, April 28, a murder shook Las Vegas in the early morning hours. The accused, 31-year-old Colin Czech, attacked his victim near Las Vegas Boulevard. The victim's body was found missing an eye and an ear, sparking widespread fear. Despite emergency services' swift response, the victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

There are reports that Colin Czech was seen consuming parts of his victim's body. The identity of the murdered man has yet to be confirmed. The accused was arrested and has been charged with murder, though charges of cannibalism have not been added.

Internet users are outraged by the murder

Online discussions about Colin Czech's horrific act have ignited debates and comments. While some attempts at humor emerged, joking about the high cost of food driving the murderer to consume his victim's face, many are highlighting the need to address mental health issues. One commenter emphasized that they need to stop ignoring the fact that in America, we have a mental health crisis.
