An Oklahoma man admitted to law enforcement that he killed his neighbor and cut out her heart, investigators said.

According to The Oklahoman, while obtaining a search warrant, an agent with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation told a judge that Lawrence Paul Anderson killed his neighbor, Andrea Lynn Blankenship, at her home in Chickasha, about 40 miles southwest of Oklahoma City, and cut her heart out before cooking it and serving it “with potatoes to feed to his family to release the demons.”

He is also accused of killing his uncle, Leon Pye, and a 4-year-old girl, Kaeos Yates, Pye’s granddaughter, at his home that same night. His aunt, Delsie Pye, was also stabbed but survived.

Anderson was found in another room at the house vomiting on pillows and was arrested by officers at the scene.

Anderson later told officers about Blankenship while being interrogated.

He had recently also had a 20-year-sentence commuted by Gov. Kevin Stitt and was released from prison in January.

Anderson, who has a history of drug addiction and violence crime, told a judge in 2017 he took bipolar medication. He was hospitalized after his arrest but was released Feb. 15 and is still in custody at the Grady County jail.
