||Name: Philip Onyancha
Born – 1978/ Died – ****
Number of victims: 19
Some people suffer from delusions and believe that they are vampires, however this is not the case for Philip Onyancha.
According to his testimony, he was recruited into a cult that convinced him of the prospect of wealth and power in exchange for human sacrifice – he would need to also drink the blood of his victims. He never raped the women, only bit down on their necks and drank their blood.
When he was caught the degree of public hysteria and outrage was so aggravated that the crowd wanted to lynch him.
“It is an urge you develop once you are initiated, and since I got into this thing, I have always had a passion to kill. My target was 100 people… once I achieved that I could have been very rich. It is that power of conviction in me, but all that is now gone because I have confessed”
To make matters worse he admitted during interrogations that he deliberately targeted women and children under the age of 10 because they were weaker and he calculated that in a maximum of 5 years he would be done with that stage in the cult and ascent to power.
After his arrest he cooperated fully and led the police to his dumping site [he admitted to 17 deaths, however the skeletons retrieved totaled up to 19 bodies]. Based on the bones and personal belongings recovered from the site, the victims could be identified and given proper burials by their families.
During the trial he said he was grateful to the police for apprehending him because it was the only way to quiet the evil spirits that haunted him. He basically said that he wouldn`t have been able to stop on his own.
In the end Philip Onyancha gave up his own freedom by confessing to his crimes. Kenya was shocked into reality over the possibility of cults and the ocult still perverting their systems of beliefs.
† Vampiric Murderers
Around 1740, somewhere in Western Prussia, a number of members of the Wollschläger family, died one after the other in a short period of time.
One of the deceased was suspected of being a vampire so the family gathered to decide on what action should be taken. It was decided to decapitate the corpse of the suspected vampire.
A nephew of the vampire volunteered to do what had to be done. After he had chopped off the head of the corpse, he collected some of its blood in a glass.
The family members all had to drink a little bit of this horrible fluid as a medicine against the vampire disease and the corpse was reburied inside the Wollschläger family crypt in the Monastery of Jakobsdorf [with its head between its legs].
The case was mentioned in “Vampires, Burial & Death” by Paul Barber in 1988.
The author mentions an article written by Leo Gerschke in 1962, with the title “Vom Vampirglauben im alten WestPreussen” describing a trip to the monastery. Supposedly he even saw the skeleton on display.

† Vampire Accounts
According to Klaus Hamberger, this story can be found in:
“Der Europäischen Niemand” vol.XI, Leipzig, 1719.
This, more or less, is what is supposed to have happened:
“In the town of Lublov, a man called Michael Caspareck had died. His coffin, covered with red silk, was buried on 20 February 1718. Soon the dead man was seen again, going around and talking to people. He even sat down with them to have a meal or a drink. Then one day he showed up at a wedding and told the wedding-guests that he wanted to eat fish. But they would not let him in and locked the doors. But the dead man banged on the doors and threatened to do horrible things so they let him in. When they refused to give him a drink, he got angry and smashed all the drinking glasses. When they had given him a drink and brought him some fish to eat, he climbed back on his horse and disappeared. He also went to see his widow and managed to make her pregnant. He did the same to four other women. After Sunday Jubilate (the 3rd Sunday after Eastern) he wasn’t seen for 3 weeks. During this period he had gone to Warsaw to take care of some financial business. On the 26th of April, they opened up his grave and decapitated and cremated his body. But the dead man came back again and set fire to several houses. One time when he visited his widow, she asked him why he would not stay in his grave. He told her that he wasn’t welcome in heaven nor hell, because at his cremation they had burnt someone else’s heart instead of his own. Therefore he had to stay in the world for seven more years.
I tried doing some extra research on this to give you more details, but I`m sorry to say that all the articles I was able to locate are in german and I have no knowledge of that language.
I don`t trust Google Translate enough to make an article based on anything I might get off it…
I reproduced the original article from ShroudEater 🙂
