A Grenada man with two severed human heads in a bucket walked into a precinct station and presented his haul to horrified police, authorities said Tuesday.

The 32-year-old, whose name wasn't released, was detained when he entered the Grenville station late Monday. He has yet to be charged, said police spokesman Troy Garvey.

Investigators released few details about the grisly slayings in St. Andrew parish, but said the man is a suspect. Garvey did not say if there were other suspects or a motive for the killings.

Police later found two hacked-up, headless bodies in a rural field, including the owner of a local tavern.

Prime Minister Tillman Thomas, who is also national security minister, called the beheadings an "indescribable act" that underscores the need for a "structured approach to anger management."

"This is a tragedy not just for the people of St. Andrew but for all of Grenada," Thomas said Tuesday.

The beheadings have shocked islanders in the Caribbean country of 91,000 who are accustomed to crime reports of only robbery and theft.
