A ‘vampire’ killer who brutally slit an elderly woman’s throat so he could suck blood from her wound has been arrested in Zimbabwe, after being found with a blood-filled pot.

Christopher Sibanda, 34, struck his victim, Subusisiwe Sigauke several times with a log before allegedly cutting her throat with a sharp implement.

He was caught red-handed in Sikhewu village when a passerby saw him sucking Sigauke’s blood from her neck, reports the Chronicle.
