ISTANBUL, TURKEY – A man has been described as a “real life” vampire after having become addicted to blood up to the extent of stabbing people to drink their blood.
The 23 year-old man started to cut himself to drink his own blood, and shortly after became addicted to it. Although the sources were running out and he started to stab other people to feed his addiction. The man described his habit as “as urgent as breathing”.
According to a report he managed to get his father to give him bags of blood that he took from blood banks, he got arrested several times for having stabbed people to drink their blood.
The report also stated: ‘Possibly due to ‘switching’ to another personality state, he was losing track during the ‘bloody’ events, did not care who the victim was anymore and remained amnesic to this part of his act.’
Doctors tried to explain his behaviour and it can be due to traumatic events in his life such as witnessing a murder where “one of his friends cut off the victim’s head and penis”, furthermore he never got over the death of his four-month-old daughter and the murder of his uncle.
