Boone Helm – nut job

Boone Helm, an old-west serial killer and cannibal who, at his execution, yelled “Hurrah for Jeff Davis! Let ‘er rip!” and then jumped off of the hangman’s box before the executioner could kick it away.

While this cannibalism was usually done in survival situations, Helm sometimes took flesh in preparation for a survival situation.

After a life lived that way it appears he had time to enjoy politics. Especially those of Jefferson Davis.
