34 Year-Old Ex Con Raped Ex-Girlfriend Before Killing Her and then Eating Her Heart, Lungs and Brain

A killer ex-con that told police that he stabbed and killed his ex-girlfriend, may also now be charged with raping her. Let’s also not forget that this gem of humanity COOKED and ATE some of her organs. Disgusting:

Woman Slain Body Mutilated

Joseph Oberhansley, from Jeffersonville, Indiana, is charged with murder and abuse of a corpse in the death of 46-year-old Tammy Jo Harbin Blanton last September.

On Tuesday, Clark County Prosecutor Jeremy Mull asked for rape to be added to those charges and a judge will consider the request on May 4, the Courier-Journal of Louisville reported.

The motion to change the charges comes after lab results for the victim’s body were returned

Oberhansley, now 34, was convicted of manslaughter in the 1998 shooting death of his then-girlfriend, 17-year-old Sabrina Elder, in Salt Lake City just days after the birth of their son.

He served 14 years behind bars for the crime and was discharged from parole on July 23 last year.

On July 31, Tammy Jo Blanton posted his $500 bond for charges of criminal recklessness and resisting law enforcement stemming from a car chase.

Then on September 11, she called 911 at around 3am to report that her jilted boyfriend was outside her home and would not leave, according to the probable cause affidavit.

Officers arrived on the scene and ordered Oberhansley to leave after Blanton spoke to him outside.

At around 10am that morning, police got another call, this time from Blanton’s co-worker, asking them to perform a welfare check after she failed to show up for work.

Police found that the back door had been forced open and inside, officers discovered Blanton dead under a tarpaulin in the blood-spattered bathroom of her home, with fatal injuries to her head, neck and torso.

‘The front of the victim’s skull appeared to have been crushed and brain tissue appeared scattered around the bathtub,’ the affidavit stated.

The statement added that they found a plate covered in blood and bone, as well as bloodied cooking utensils, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported.

After police questioning, Oberhansley confessed to forcing his way into the bathroom, where Blanton had locked herself, and stabbing her repeatedly. He then told police that he used an electric jigsaw to open her skull. He ate parts of her brain, heart, and lungs.

The trial date is expected to be set for the end of April.
