A man in Iloilo City, Philippines hacked off his sleeping wife’s head with a machete, because he mistook her for a vampire.
61 year old Rodolfo Rojo was arrested on Tuesday morning after handing himself in to the police and confessing his crime. Police investigators went to Mr Rojo’s house and found his 70 year old wife lying in bed, her head was a metre away on the floor.
Mr Rojo told police officers that he had attacked his wife, Adela on Monday night because he thought she was an “aswang”. The aswang, also known as soc-soc, wak-wak or tik-tik are a vampire-like creature from Filipino folklore which has spread fear throughout the Philippines for centuries.
Count Dracula and JenyEliza better watch out.
