A Human Vampire.

The following incident seems incredible, but nevertheless is a fact beyond doubt. Peo Perez, accompanied by a small boy, Enrique Bello, seven years old, left Valparaiso to travel on foot to Santiago. Upon arrival at the entrance to the railroad tunnel, near San Pedro, Perez seized the boy and undertook to eat him alive. Amidst the screams of the boy, he ate the fingers of one hand, a part of one foot, and bit pieces out of £he cheek. He then commenced sucking the blood, but in the meantime the boy fainted. The guard of the tunnel, in passing through and out of it, came upon Perez while in the midst of his feasb, but before he could be arrested he fled up the banks and disappeared. The boy was taken care of, the coming train was stopped, and the lad put on board to be conveyed to the Limache Hospital. Subsequently the "vampire" was captured by the police in Quillota.
