South Texas man set to die said he drank victim’s blood

HUNSTVILLE, Texas (AP) — The U.S. Supreme Court has been asked to block the scheduled execution of a South Texas man for the 1998 slaying of a 12-year-old boy, whose blood the convicted killer said he drank.
Pablo Lucio Vasquez, 38, told police he was drunk and high when voices convinced him 18 years ago to kill David Cardenas by beating the seventh-grader with a pipe and then cutting his throat. He also told detectives in a videotaped statement that he lifted the boy’s body, allowing the blood to drip on his face, and drank it.
