The Man Accused of Stabbing His Ex-Girlfriend to Death to Eat Her Brain and Lungs Now Faces Rape Charges

Sometimes it’s hard to figure out if someone is evil or just completely insane. In the case of Joseph Overhansley, who is accused of stabbing his girlfriend to death, raping her, and eating her organs, it’s probably a little bit of both.

In addition to breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s house, stabbing her to death and then eating her intestines, prosecutors say a man in Indiana also raped the helpless woman.

Joseph Oberhansley, 34, was hit with an additional rape charge in court on Monday, as a trial date was set for the murder of 46-year-old Tammy Jo Blanton.

The added rape charge means that if Oberhansley is convicted of Blanton’s murder, he will now be eligible for the death penalty. In Indiana, prosecutors must prove that a murderer also committed rape, burglary or dismemberment in order to ask for the death penalty.

… When he was informed of the latest rape charge, Oberhansley denied the allegations saying in court that he has too much honor and integrity and is also ‘too handsome’ to have sexually assaulted his former girlfriend, according to the News and Tribune.

… According to court documents, Oberhansley told police he broke into Blanton’s Jeffersonville home, killed her, then ate her heart and parts of her brain and lung.

What this man did was truly evil, but he also seems to have a touch of the crazy in him, too. Whatever the state decides is a fitting punishment, the important thing is that this man be kept off the streets so he can’t ever hurt anyone again.
