Bond Set at $1 Million For Man in Mother’s Dismemberment

November 13, 1994

AKRON, Ohio (AP) _ A judge set bond at $1 million Saturday for a man accused of dismembering his mother and cutting out her organs.

Henry M. Heepe, who told police his mother was a ″vampire devil,″ did not enter a plea at his arraignment. He was being held in county jail.

Heepe, 50, is charged with aggravated murder in the death of his 77-year- old mother, Barbara Heepe.

He is accused of beating his mother to death, stabbing her repeatedly, then removing her organs and possibly eating some of them. Police said they didn’t find all of her organs.

He was arrested Monday at his home and told officers that his mother had two hearts, both of which he claimed to have cut out, police said.

Police said they found Heepe nude on a bed, surrounded by pieces of the corpse.

Heepe is expected to appear in court Monday when the judge will set a preliminary hearing date, bailiff Regina Mace said.
