Man Claims To Be 500-Year-Old Vampire

Lyle Monroe Bensley
Police handout/Galveston Police Dept.

Today’s entertainment is full of vampires, werewolves, and strange beings with strange powers. It’s no surprise, then, that people would emulate what they see in movies and on television, as well as what they’re reading. Such is the case of a Galveston man who claims to be a 500-year-old vampire.

Lyle Monroe Bensley, who is actually a 19-year-old (and here I thought he really was 500), broke into a woman’s house and proceeded to try to suck her blood. Police were called, of course, and they found Bensley in the parking lot.

Found growling and hissing 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.

Bensley was taken into custody, where he awaited a psychiatric evaluation.

I love a good vampire book or movie. I find the Charlaine Harris books (the basis for the HBO series True Blood) to be a lot of fun to read and it’s a nice escape from reality. I guess this guy has taken a literal escape from reality.
