Orange, TX - Days after 22-year-old Christopher Philmon posted on Facebook that one day he’ll eat human flesh, he was charged with murdering his uncle and kidnapping his girlfriend.
Last week, Philmon made a post on his Facebook page that stated, “One day I will eat human and finally find out if it really tastes like pork”. At 12:34 a.m. Monday morning, police received a call from Philmon’s girlfriend who claimed he’d kidnapped and assaulted her.
The woman said she picked Philmon up at near the home he shared with his uncle, 50-year-old Roy James Philmon. She said once in the car, he admitted to murdering his uncle and forced her to drive to Louisiana. She eventually convinced him they should go back to Texas where she dropped him back off at his home.
After getting out of her car there, Philmon got into his uncle’s Cadillac and drove away. When police arrived at the home, they found blood that led from the driveway to the front porch. They found Roy dead in his bedroom, with multiple new holes made by a kitchen knife.
Around 9:15 a.m., after the Cadillac got a flat, Philmon decided he was done running and told a store clerk in Houston that he’d killed someone and wanted to turn himself in. When deputies arrived, Philmon surrendered without incident.
Philmon’s mother says her son may have stabbed his uncle to death during one of his schizophrenic episodes. She stated that her son hallucinates and has cut his wrists in the past. According to her, Philmon was waiting on a Social Security disability payment to help him afford the right medication.
Police say the stabbing stemmed from an argument between Philmon and his uncle. Philmon is currently in the Orange County Jail on $600,000 bond, charged with murder and kidnapping.
In the comment section of this article, people claiming to know the people involved back up Christopher’s mental health issues, and a few say that these two loved each other. However, someone claiming to be Roy’s niece and Christopher’s cousin, made the following comment:
“I am Roy Philmon’s niece and Christopher’s cousin. I havent seen much of chris in the past few years because I had moved to Dallas, so I cant say that I knew his current mental state exactly. I can however inform you all of how twisted my uncle was. To a stranger im sure my Uncle Roy would seem to be a very sweet person, he was soft spoken and all. But, if you really KNEW Roy Philmon, and what he was capable of, you would never say he was a really nice guy. Nice guys dont repeatedly molest their neices and nephews. Roy Philmon molested more than a couple of my cousins, including christopher who was left to live with Roy for the majority of his life. I just need people to be aware of the horrible things Chris had to live and try to deal with. I need you all to think how something like that would effect you, before your so quick to judge my cousin.“Tags: Christopher Philmon, Crime, facebook, Kidnapping, mental illness, Murder, Roy Philmon, Stabbing, Texas
