Woman Blames Low Self-Esteem for Eating Her Own Child

In a shocking incident, a 24-year-old woman in Kitengela has been accused of murdering her daughter and cannibalizing her body parts. Olivia Kaserran was arraigned in court yesterday and is being detained in police custody for 10 days while investigations continue.

According to reports, Kaserran attacked her daughter on Sunday night inside her parent’s home. Neighbours who heard blood-curdling screams rushed to the scene and witnessed the horrifying act. The young mother was found naked and dismembering her child. She had not only cut the body into pieces but was also in the process of feeding on her daughter’s entrails.

In an exclusive interview with a local news outlet before being taken into custody, Kaserran revealed that she hates herself and has suffered a lot, which led her to carry out the heinous act. She did not elaborate on the nature of her suffering. The fourth-year Bachelor of Commerce student enrolled at a local university claimed that she initially wanted to kill herself before changing her mind and stabbing the child multiple times.

The incident has left the community in shock, with many struggling to comprehend how someone could commit such a heinous crime. Kaserran’s parents were not at home at the time of the incident. Her father works as a teacher at a school in the Eastern region while her mother is visiting relatives in Nyahururu County. Kaserran had returned from Meru, where she was living with her daughter, to her parent’s home on Saturday.

Kitengela Directorate of Criminal Investigations Officer Benson Mutia called the incident “bizarre” and stated that the police would be interrogating Kaserran to ascertain the motive of the killing and whether it was premeditated.


The tragic incident occurred only two days after another horrific murder in Kitengela, where a 22-year-old woman was attacked and killed by her colleague in a suspected love triangle. The two incidents have sent shockwaves through the community, with many calling for increased efforts to address the rising cases of violence in the area.

You Won’t Believe What Scientists Discovered About Cannibalism [People Who Eat Other People]

Cannibalism, the act of consuming the flesh of one’s own species, is one of the most taboo and heinous acts that humans can commit. While it is fortunately rare, there have been instances of pathological cannibalism throughout history, with a small number of cases even occurring in modern times. Scientists have recently studied five cases of pathological cannibalism, and their findings shed light on the disturbing behavior.

The researchers analyzed five cases of pathological cannibalism, which is defined as cannibalism that is not part of a cultural practice or survival situation. These cases involved individuals who killed, dismembered, and consumed the flesh of others. The study found that narcissism was a significant factor in all five cases, as the individuals displayed an extreme sense of self-importance and entitlement.

In one case, a man named Armin Meiwes from Germany found a willing victim, Bernd-Jurgen Brandes, who had responded to an online advertisement seeking a “slaughter victim.” Meiwes killed and ate parts of Brandes, documenting the entire process on video. In another case, Issei Sagawa from Japan killed and consumed the flesh of a fellow student while studying abroad in France.

The researchers found that in each of these cases, the individuals had a distorted view of themselves and their relationship to others. They believed that they were superior to others and that their desires should be satisfied at any cost. This extreme narcissism led them to view their victims as objects to be used for their own pleasure and consumption.

The study also found that pathological cannibalism is often accompanied by other mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia or psychosis. These individuals may hear voices or experience delusions that compel them to commit the act of cannibalism.

While these cases are undoubtedly disturbing and difficult to comprehend, studying them can provide valuable insights into the human psyche. By understanding the factors that contribute to pathological cannibalism, we can work to prevent these heinous acts from occurring in the future. Additionally, by identifying and treating individuals who exhibit narcissistic or other mental health disorders, we may be able to prevent them from committing acts of violence.

In conclusion, the study of pathological cannibalism is a harrowing but necessary endeavor. By shedding light on the underlying factors that contribute to this behavior, we can work to prevent it from occurring in the future and ensure that those who suffer from mental illness receive the care they need.
