A while ago I posted a story about this guy who went crazy and thought another guy was a zombie so he stabbed him to death has been sent to the State Hospital at Carstairs indefinitely.
Tianhui Zhan, 19, attacked 21-year-old Michael Davis in Glasgow’s West Campbell Street in October last year. The trial heard that on 13 October last year Mr Davis was talking on his mobile phone in West Campbell Street as he moved from one cleaning job to another.
After Zhan stabbed him three times, Mr Davis staggered to an office in Bothwell Street where his aunt was working. He died in hospital the following day from his injuries.
The court heard that Zhan, who is of Chinese origin but lived with his parents in Canada, booked a flight to Toronto via Amsterdam. He was stopped in the Dutch city because he had no passport and later extradited to Scotland.
While detained, he told a psychiatrist he had travelled from Canada to Scotland because “voices” said he should. Zhan then started to hallucinate, seeing blood on people’s faces and thought they were zombies. He said he was afraid Mr Davis was a zombie who was going to attack him.
