The arrest of a man accused of breaking into a woman's house and trying to suck her blood has sparked discussion about the impact of vampire books and movies on youth culture.

Whether pop culture played a role in Saturday's attack remains to be seen, as 19-year-old Lyle Monroe Bensley awaits a psychiatric evaluation in jail on burglary charges in Galveston, Texas.

Galveston police say the man forced his way into the apartment of a woman he did not know and made growling and hissing noises while biting and hitting the victim in her bed.

Found in a parking lot and wearing only boxer shorts, the pierced and tattooed Bensley claimed he was a 500-year-old vampire who needed to "feed," Galveston Police Capt. Jeff Heyse said.

Meh, it was a criminal act with style. Recent Vampire phases are probably not the cause. However, movies and media can always inspire a little style when it comes to criminals.

Vampires don't exist.
He was clearly mentally ill or taking role-playing all too seriously.

I believe on what the vampire said. Or maybe I want to believe.


How cool would that be! :yik:

What an ordeal for that woman.

Rather random and weird, but he must be mentally ill.

You know what made me laugh?

...to suck her blood has sparked discussion...I read "sparkled" instead of "sparked".

I do not believe a lot of these people are "mentally ill". Sure it was a weird thing this kid did, but is it enough to really say something is wrong with him? I am not saying I believe this kid AT ALL, however it would be interesting if what he said was true. I don't think people should instantly call him mental though. Haha, if this had happened to me I would have just believed him and ran to the kitchen to find some garlic or something.

That's what the movies all about. They are trying to let human to have ill-minded and something like that. He's just a ****ing crazy.

the guys is obviously a little loony. he told authorities he was a 500 year old vampire who needed to feed...?


while i dont think media is directly responsible for any crime, this guy has obviously seen one too many vampire flicks and takes the roles way to seriously

if someone broke in to my house growling, hissing, and biting me i wouldnt think to grab a stake and garlic, id grab a gun and blow his head off

Okay, that's it. Our country (or the world) is literally ass deep in Vampirism and there is no sign of it getting out.

What's a "Twihard"?

The people obsessed with Winona Ryder and Johnny Depp?

I lick the blood off any small wounds I get, but that's the extent of my vampirism. :vlol:

Personally, I'd have ran for a sharp object if this bitch went after me. Nothing like a stake to the heart. </3

That's strange.
He was definitely sick person with mental problems

After seeing his photo, I kind of wouldn't mind if he tried to bite my neck...:vlol:

He looks horrible and scary; looks so hard, with weariness in his eyes and troubled mind

there was something in the news in the UK ages ago where a man killed an over 60 year old than drank her blood. Disgusting! (I will try to find the article, but it was years ago)

Someone could easily burst his bubble by throwing him in sunlight and pointing out that oh hey, you're not on fire.

Meh, it was a criminal act with style.
Hah, nicely said. I guess the guy figured that if he's going to jail he might as well create a crazy little story and make it on the news.
