Oklahoma Cannibal Released Early from Prison Cooks Neighbor’s Heart to Feed to His Family

Prison reform is going just about as good as you could expect. An Oklahoma man named Lawrence Paul Anderson who was recently released from prison after Governor Stitt commuted his sentence, is back in prison after he attempted to cook his neighbors heart with potatoes and serve it to his family before killing Leon Pye, 67, stabbing the aunt and killing the pair’s 4-year-old granddaughter. 

According to The Oklahoman, Anderson had his sentence commuted by Gov. Kevin Stitt, by the recommendation of the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board. He was originally supposed to serve 20 years with no possibility of parole. The sentence was commuted to nine years, and he ended up serving just over three of them before being released.

Lawrence Paul Anderson was serving his sentence for drugs and guns related charges before Oklahoma governor Kevin Stitt commuted his sentence at the recommendation of the Oklahoma Pardon & Parole Board. This is just another example of how prison reform policy actually works. 


Cannibalism may be rare within the United States of America, but in certain parts of the world, the practice continues as it had for centuries prior. 

Prison reform policy is a roll of the dice, where we release criminals into the streets and just hope they aren’t going to cook their neighbors heart and attempt to feed it to their family members.
