Stabbing victim: Edmonds woman claimed to be ‘serial killer’

EVERETT — An Edmonds woman who allegedly claimed she wanted to become a serial killer and eat a man’s heart has been arrested for investigation of attempted murder.

The suspect appeared Tuesday in Everett District Court. Bail was set at $1 million for Amy C. Brown, 24.

Brown is accused of stabbing the man Sunday at the Rodeo Inn along Highway 99 in Lynnwood.

The man told police that he had created an online post on Craigslist looking for companionship. He said he was looking for a dating relationship and was not soliciting sex. Their date ended up at the hotel where he paid for a room.

The man said the woman asked him several times if he was a serial killer, to which he said he was not.

She then allegedly climbed on top of him and said, “Well I am a serial killer,” before grabbing a knife and stabbing him in the chest. He was able to break away and ran from the room, reporting the stabbing to the clerk and making his way to a nearby pharmacy where he was met by police.

The man was treated for a punctured lung at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

Police then tracked down the suspect who was found with a knife in her pocket.

“I am a loon,” Brown allegedly told a Lynnwood officer.

She said she wanted to become a serial killer and planned to kill the man with a knife, according to court papers.

She also allegedly told another officer that said she wanted to eat the man’s heart and planned to leave a note on his body explaining that she planned to kill again.

A 2011 image captured by Google of a vehicle parked in front of the suspect’s home shows a blue car matching the description of the one she was in when she was detained by police. At the time, a bumper sticker on the back of the car read: “I’ve got a perfect body. But it’s in the trunk and beginning to smell.”
