    Chinese woman boiled man's head to cure daughter's psychiatric problems
    A Chinese woman boiled a man's head in a soup because she believed it would cure her daughter's psychiatric problems, a local newspaper reported on Tuesday.
    Published: 11:20PM BST 23 Jun 2009

    Lin Zongxiu, from the southwestern province of Sichuan, heard in 2008 that soup made with a man’s head could help cure her daughter who had suffered from psychiatric problems for years, the Chengdu Commercial newspaper reported.

    Lin and her husband decided to enlist the help of a man in December who knocked unconscious a drunk 76-year-old passer-by before beheading him, the paper claimed.

    The couple then gave their 25-year-old daughter soup made from the man’s head, and duck.

    A local court sentenced the murderer to death with a two-year reprieve on Monday, and Lin was convicted of helping to destroy evidence that included the culprit’s bloody clothes and shoes, the paper said.

    The murderer’s reprieve means that his sentence will likely be commuted to life in prison as long as he commits no further offences in the next two years.

    The duck was a nice touch, though. Maybe they were trying to get the Duckhead pants people to sponsor this delightful home remedy.

    Try the head, and don't forget to tip your waitress.

    Still not as weird as Scientology's cures for psychiatric problems.
