A man who beheaded a fellow bus passenger has revealed that he believed he was killing an alien.
Speaking for the first time since the July 2008 attack in Canada, Vince Weiguang Li said he had heard what he believed was “the voice of God” instructing him to “save people from a space alien attack.”
Chinese-born Li was found not guilty of murdering 22-year-old Tim McLean – who was stabbed 50 or 60 times before his head was cut off – after being diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia.
He has since been treated at a mental health centre near Winnipeg, Manitoba.
The comments came during an interview given to a schizophrenia society where Li said he had bought the knife used in the attack for protection “from the aliens”.
