A man from Oklahoma cuts his neighbor's heart and cooked it for his family before killing them. Lawrence, Paul Anderson, 42, murdered his uncle, Leon Pye, 67, and his four-year-old niece, Kaeos Yates, and stabbed him in the eyes.

Police received a call from his house on West Minnesota Avenue on February 9, in which a woman begged for help. They heard someone screaming when they arrived at the scene and forced their way in.

Police found Leon dead when they entered inside, and his granddaughter, Kaeos, was seriously injured. She died on the spot in the back of the ambulance. Delsie Pye was still alive, but both eyes had knife wounds.

"Chickasha Police Officers observed Anderson throwing up some pillows in the living room," said the Oklahoma State Investigation Bureau.

When Anderson was getting treatment in the hospital, he confessed that he broke into his neighbor's house and slaughtered her before killing his own family, OSBI said.

"He admitted to moving to Chickasha, 227 West Minnesota Road," an investigator wrote in a request for a Pye house search warrant. "He used his elbow to knock on the door behind him. The house had two German shepherd dogs in it. Anderson instructed him to kill the resident female and cut out her heart."

The agent said to the court, "He brought the heart back to 214 west Minnesota, Chickasha." "He cooked his heart with potatoes to feed his family and free the demons."

Agent collected evidence from the house, which was pots, pans, and cooking utensils.


At his first court appearance, which took place via video, Anderson wept Tuesday.

Your Honor, I do not want any bail. I don't want to get some bail,' he said.

He wiped away tears with a heavily bandaged right hand, the Oklahoman reported.

"Oh, God," he murmured. "God, oh."

Per The Oklahoman, in 2006, he was first sent to jail for four years for threatening his mother, pointing a gun at her, and possessing crack cocaine to sell it. Still, after just two days, he got released.

He was sentenced to 15 years in 2012 for trafficking crack cocaine near Chickasha Elementary School and got released after five years.

When he got released in 2017 after a few months, he confronted a woman in her car when she left the church; he was carrying a sharp knife and had a PCP vial concealed in his cloth.

However, at the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board's recommendation, Governor Kevin Stitt commuted the sentence to nine years. After serving only three people, he got released.
