Unusual dietary preferences of rapist and murderer

I have read many gruesome reports of the activities of rapists and murderers over the years, but this particular example of an evil individual's thought processes and actions seems to reach new depths:

In addition to finding the girl's bicycle dismantled and stowed under Underwood's bed, police found "a decorative dagger believed to be used in an attempt to cut off the victim's head, a hacksaw, duct tape, meat tenderizer, skewers, and a duffle bag."

- it's the bit about a meat tenderiser and skewers that brought home to me just how abominable this monster is. I am deeply opposed to the death penalty, but I admit to finding it difficult to argue convincingly against that ultimate sanction in this case.
