Maybe this zombie apocalypse thing really does have legs.

In another odd, horrifying incident of human flesh-eating, Alexander Kinyua, a student in Maryland, allegedly admitted to devouring his roommate's brain and heart.

The 21-year-old Morgan State University student says that he killed Kujoe Bonsafo Agyei-Kodie, who was reported missing last Friday, cops told the Baltimore Sun.

Kinyua's father called police late Tuesday night when Kinyua's brother reportedly found human remains, a head and two hands, in a metal tin in the basement.

The brother and father left the room for a short time, but when they came back, the body parts had been moved and Alexander Kinyua was washing out the tin.

Officers searched the house and arrested Kinyua.

The man then allegedly confessed a shocking revelation eerily reminiscent of Rudy Eugene: not only had he killed Agyei-Kodie by cutting him up with a knife and then dismembered him, he ingested parts of the victim's brain and all of his heart.

He allegedly dropped most of the remains in a dumpster.

It's yet unclear what Kinyua's motive may have been (no, there were no bath salts involved), but he was charged with first-degree murder on Wednesday.

The gruesome case comes on the heels of a similar attack in Miami, in which Rudy Eugene was killed after eating homeless man Ronald Poppo's face.
