A drunk man in Mexico shot his friend in the head and then proceeded to cut off the friend’s penis, which he fed to his dog.
Mario Alberto Lizalde Reyes had been out walking his dog with his lifelong friend, 24-year-old Mario Hernandez Banda, in the city of Ciudad Juarez.
However, when Banda tried to touch Reyes in what Reyes described as a “sexual way,” the two men started arguing.
“We were both drunk, and he tried touching me in a sexual way,” Reyes said in a televised confession. “After pushing him off, he went to urinate in an alley, so I followed him, pulled out my gun and shot him in the head.”
The violence did not end there.
“I then took his knife off him and chopped off his penis as punishment and put it in a bag,” Reyes continued.
The 25-year-old man said that his dog was next to him and “sniffing at it, so I decided to give it to him, and he ate it.”
Reyes left the bloody body slumped in the alley, finished walking his dog and went home to sleep off the booze.
Mirror reports that the very next day, overcome with guilt about what he had done, Reyes decided to turn himself in.
A police spokesman said that Reyes “came in covered in cuts and bruises and said he had fought with his stepfather when he told him what he had done.”
According to the spokesman, Reyes then “admitted killing his best friend and said that, although his friend had tried sexually assaulting him, he was still a human being and didn’t deserve to die.”
Reyes now faces life in jail.
