Man, this is the kind of story that makes me wanna hitchhike instead of taking the bus… Vince Weiguang Li, accused of decapitating a passenger named Tim McLean on a Greyhound bus in Manitoba, Canada on Wednesday, made his first appearance in court today.
From The Sun:
Reports say Li’s victim is Tim McLean â€“ a 22-year-old carnival worker.
Witnesses say Li stabbed him repeatedly before slicing off his head and calmly dropping it at the feet of his fellow passengers.
Li is then said to have began cutting up his victim’s body using a Rambo-style hunting knife.
Rambo-Style knife? Okay, thanks The Sun. For a slightly less sensationalized version, let’s check in with Ground Report:
Witnesses say that Vince Weiguang Li pulled out a large knife and began stabbing Tim McLean who was sitting next to him and sleeping. Passengers screamed in terror, the bus driver pulled over in Portage La Prairie, Manitoba and the passengers escaped the bus before Vince Weiguang Li hurt anyone else. Passengers managed to not let Li escape and the bus driver had disabled the bus’ motor so Li could not drive away. When passengers entered the bus to try and rescue the victim, they saw that Vince Weiguang Li had cut Tim McLean’s head off and he started coming after them with his knife. Police arrived at the scene and managed to capture Li as he attempted to jump out of a window.
UPDATE: Found the victim’s MySpace page. If you’re morbidly curious like I am, you will click here.
His unfortunate MySpace epitaph: “4 20 yeah ”
And did anyone else find this image, left as a comment a few months ago, to be just a bit sadly ironic?
