Oregon police say that a man who allegedly walked into a grocery store and stabbed an employee on Sunday afternoon was covered in blood, holding a knife and carrying what appeared to be a human head.
The suspect is in custody, but he has not yet been identified. The grocery store employee he stabbed was flown to the hospital; his condition is unknown.
Store employees tackled the suspect and held him down until police arrived. The suspect was reportedly taken to a hospital after being brought into custody.
Just 20 minutes later, a 911 caller reported finding a woman dead inside of a home roughly 10 miles from the store.
Investigators determined that her death occurred in the home, and they believe the man who stabbed the grocery store employee killed her. They say there is no threat to the public at this time, and there was no report as to whether the dead woman still had her head. An investigation is ongoing.
